Glycine is inhibitory and plays dual roles as both a neurotransmitter and an amino acid that serves as a building block of proteins. Glycine improves sleep quality, calms aggression, and serves as an anti-inflammatory agent. Glycine has been shown to boost mental performance and memory. Elevated glycine levels may be associated with compromised cognitive processing. Low levels of glycine may contribute to poor sleep, poor cognitive function, and issues with memory.

What does it mean if your Glycine result is too low?

Low levels of glycine may contribute to poor sleep, poor cognitive function, and issues with memory.

Possible generalized tissue loss, glycine being part of the nitrogen pool and important in gluconeogenesis. Supplement glycine.

What does it mean if your Glycine result is too high?

Elevated glycine levels may be associated with compromised cognitive processing.

Supplement vitamin B5, folic acid, and vitamins B6, and B2 for the efficient metabolism of glycine to pyruvic acid for oxidation and for glutathione synthesis or gluconeogenesis.
