Now Foods Glycine is important for DNA and RNA and helps support energy production and glycogen storage. Glycine is the primary component of collage, which is the non-contractile connective tissue that makes up most of your skin, tendons, and ligaments. This is a non-essential amino acid that helps your body regulate blood sugar levels and helps provide glucose to various body tissues for energy. It affects the production of brain neurotransmitters, which are essential for maintaining normal brain function and emotions. Your digestive system relies on glycine in order to function normally.
