The smallest and simplest amino acid, making it versatile for use in a wide range of functions. Glycine is necessary for the production of glutathione, DNA, creatine, bile, hemoglobin, and most proteins. It also helps to promote glycogen storage, thereby making glucose readily available for energy production. Glycine also functions as a calming neurotransmitter in the brain, where it facilitates nerve impulses and is important for the maintenance of healthy sleep patterns.

Paragon’s clinical metabolic research shows how the stress of modern life is causing the accelerated depletion of most nutrients involved in detoxification which support the metabolism and recycling of all-important glutathione. These include vitamins (B5, B3, B2, B6, B12 and methyl folate), minerals (potassium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, and copper), and amino acids (cysteine, glycine and glutamic acid). Therefore, glycine must be ingested in balance with these other nutrients involved in detoxification. Each Paragon subscription provides a unique balance of all the above nutrients based on each unique clinical assessment of test results and questionnaire data.

As glutathione is comprised of the amino acids glycine, cysteine and glutamic acid, Paragon’s clinical metabolic testing shows that when in balance with cysteine and glutamic acid, glycine has the ability to help maintain healthy liver tissue, healthy lung tissue and function, the body's natural defenses and enhanced cellular health and longevity. These qualities make glycine beneficial for active people, the elderly, those with a past history of liver problems, pneumonia and lung problems, alcohol problems, heavy consumption of Tylenol or other acetaminophen products, and those exposed to polluted environments.
