The amino acid L-Glycine is the smallest chemical compound of all the amino acids. This indicates it permeates nearly every cell and area of your body. While it is a non-essential amino acid meaning your body can make it, assuring adequate amounts by consuming it directly can boost performance in a number of ways. For improved recovery post workout, L-Glycine can be a game changer for you. Immediately following training is possibly the best time to consume this supplement powder.

Glycine is necessary for building muscle and it helps your body turn glucose into energy. For these two benefits alone, it’s a must have supplement for any athlete in Canada. As it helps form normal DNA and RNA strands, you can see how it works at your cellular level deep inside your body. You will typically find high levels of L-Glycine in your muscles, skin and other connective tissues throughout your body. Hard training and other unknown factors can deplete your glycine stores however so we advise every serious athlete to add glycine powder to their supplement regimen.


As far as ProteinCo is concerned, L-Glycine is one of the most important amino acids to take in supplement form. This is due to the long list of benefits you can experience with added glycine in your daily diet. It can help you build lean muscle tissue, boost energy levels, aid in digestion, improve how your skin looks and heals, and shows promise for cancer treatment. To assure maximum effectiveness, mixing glycine powder with other amino acids, protein powders, and recovery drinks is advised over consuming alone. Too often a supplement like this is seen as a miracle powder and more is always better. L-Glycine is one of those as the laundry list of possible health and performance benefits lures you into thinking it should be consumed alone in massive quantities. We don’t believe it’s possible to achieve your goals through supplementing with large quantities of any nutrient. Use the guidelines listed here to find a balanced plan for helping you achieve all your goals, whether they be athletic or simply health related.


Canadian athletes use L-Glycine to help them recover faster

Since glycine is necessary for building muscle, it’s sensible to consider it a recovery supplement. Taking glycine powder alone or mixed with other recovery powders and supplements immediately post workout, can help you recovery faster and build more muscle. Those into bodybuilding in Canada as well as many other professional Canadian athletes use glycine as a secret recovery supplement. It works so well they are reluctant to tell others of the benefits. If you haven’t heard of the benefits it is likely due to athletes keeping this secret to themselves. One of the reasons for the recovery boost is that glycine has been shown to raise creatine levels which helps prevent the breakdown of muscle tissue. This means you can workout harder and longer and not need as much time to recover since your muscles don’t get torn down as much. Any boost such as this is HUGE in helping you recover so you can workout harder next time.


One of the primary properties of L-Glycine is for assisting with turning glucose into energy. Because of this property, studies indicate it can assist with ailments such as chronic fatigue syndrome. Regardless of whether or not you suffer from such an affliction, nearly everyone would say they want more energy. By boosting your body’s ability to produce energy naturally, you can avoid the artificial buzz that sugar and stimulants offer in the name of boosting energy. True energy comes from helping your body do its job and glycine powder can do just that for almost everyone.


Lean Muscle – Glycine is a primary muscle building nutrient

By helping to boost the levels of creatine in your body, L-Glycine is one the non-essential amino acids that becomes essential for many athletes who train hard. By mixing our glycine powder with essential amino acids found in our BCAA Powder, you may experience faster and better lean muscle development than you do without supplementing. The research indicates it can be a significant improvement for building muscle mass that is lean and toned so it’s definitely worth the small expense to try it. Particularly if you have been experiencing a plateau in your muscle development, you should try Glycine powder added to one or more of our other amino acid powders.

Lose Fat – Mixing with L-Carnitine can boost fat metabolism

Glycine works at the cellular level among its’ many other properties. This means it can help transport other nutrients into your mitochondria where it can be utilized more efficiently. One such possibility that has been backed by scientific studies is glycine being able to latch onto L-Carnitine and helping it hitch a ride into your body’s fuel burning furnaces called your mitochondria. L-Carntine L-Tartrate helps your body release fat from your cells to be burned for energy. If you can throw that fat directly on the fire, you will get a much better energy burn. This is essentially the role L-Glycine can play when taken together with Acetyl L-Carnitine. Mixing these two supplements that you can buy online here are Proteinco.ca can help you lose weight better than just about any other supplement combination. To do this, take L-Carntine caps and follow with a serving or two of Glycine powder about 10 minutes later. It may help you burn fat and can contribute to natural weight loss as opposed to other possibly dangerous diets like the HCG diet and others. ProteinCo always advocates natural supplements for helping you achieve any goal and our L-Glycine and L-Carnitine combination is one such natural combination that can help you lose weight and keep it off permanently.

Energy – Turing glucose into real energy that is long burning!

Our L-Glycine is a non-essential amino acid that is necessary for your to turn glucose into energy. Your body takes carbohydrates you consume and turns them into glucose through a fairly complicated metabolic process. The bottom line is you won’t be able to do anything with that glucose other than turn it to fat without glycine. Anyone suffering from lack of energy or motivation, especially when it comes to doing that workout you said you were going to do today, should seriously consider trying our Glycine powder. You should notice more consistent energy throughout the day and more energy and endurance during any athletic training or activity your participate in.
