Product Notes:

Amino acids are organic compounds which can be thought of as the building blocks, primarily of the proteins that build up our muscles, but also of other kindred substances like creatine, which is used to produce energy and to create DNA and RNA.

Glycine has the simplest molecular structure of all the 20 amino acids, which enables it to fit easily into the more complex protein chains being formed by the other types which are used to accomplish many other functions throughout the body (including cognitive functions) and recent research also indicates supplementing with it may help increase lifespan.
