How to Use It

Healthy people do not need to supplement with glycine. A physician should be consulted before supplemental glycine is used for the support of serious health conditions.

Where to Find It

Glycine is found in many foods high in protein, such as fish, meat, beans, and dairy.

Possible Deficiencies

Few people are glycine deficient, in part because the body makes its own supply of the nonessential amino acids.
