Glycine(10 mg)


Glycine is possibly effective for treating schizophrenia and ischemic stroke; treating leg ulcers when used with other conventional medicines. It may also be used as an adjuvant therapy for memory enhancement, benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), liver protection, cancer prevention and others.

How it works

Glycine is used to make proteins which are vital to human physiological functions. It is also involved in the transmission of chemical signals in the brain, so it may be used for treating schizophrenia and improving memory. It also seems to interfere with the blood supply needed by certain tumors, thus may have a role in cancer prevention too.

Common side effects

Nausea, Drowsiness, Stomach upset, Vomiting
L-Arginine(8 mg)


L-Arginine is used for congestive heart failure, chest pain, high blood pressure, and coronary artery disease. L-arginine is also used for recurrent pain in the legs due to blocked arteries, decreased mental capacity in the elderly, erectile dysfunction, male infertility. L-arginine for preventing the common cold, improving kidney function after a kidney transplant, high blood pressure during pregnancy (pre-eclampsia), improving athletic performance, boosting the immune system, and preventing inflammation of the digestive tract in premature infants.

How it works

L-arginine's activities, including its possible anti-atherogenic actions, may be accounted for by its role as the precursor to nitric oxide or NO. NO is produced by all tissues of the body and plays very important roles in the cardiovascular system, immune system and nervous system. NO is formed from L-arginine via the enzyme nitric oxide synthase or synthetase (NOS), and the effects of NO are mainly mediated by 3,'5' -cyclic guanylate or cyclic GMP. NO activates the enzyme guanylate cyclase, which catalyzes the synthesis of cyclic GMP from guanosine triphosphate or GTP. Cyclic GMP is converted to guanylic acid via the enzyme cyclic GMP phosphodiesterase. NOS is a heme-containing enzyme with some sequences similar to cytochrome P-450 reductase. Several isoforms of NOS exist, two of which are constitutive and one of which is inducible by immunological stimuli. The constitutive NOS found in the vascular endothelium is designated eNOS and that present in the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system is designated nNOS.

Q. Is glycine optically active/ polar/ hydrophobic/ soluble in water/ a nucleotide/ amphipathic/ inhibitory or excitatory/ ionic or covalent/ polar covalent/ contain a chiral carbon/have a side chain/have peptide bonds/have a chiral center/form hydrogen bonds?
Glycine is an amino acid which does not have a side chain. It is considered non-polar hydrophobic but can also fit into hydrophilic class. It does not have a chiral center.

Q. Is glycine vegan?
It is vegan

Q. Does glycine raise blood sugar?
Glycine ingestion results in little or no increase in plasma glucose concentrations

Q. Does glycine help you sleep?
Glycine is coming as a new non-pharmaceutical option for promoting good sleep. It should be taken as per physician advice.
