L-Glycine Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient L-Glycine, or Aminoacetic Acid

Glycine – also known as L-glycine, aminoacetic acid or aminoethanoic acid – is the smallest of the 20 amino acids in the human body. It is considered a nonessential or conditionally essential amino acid, which means that it is normally produced by the body in sufficient amounts; however, dietary supplementation may be beneficial in times of illness or stress, or for the treatment of certain diseases. L-glycine is found in some food sources as well as in health and bodybuilding supplements such as HGF-MAX, HGH 30,000 Nanograms pills and spray, and whey protein mixes.

Functions of L-Glycine

As an amino acid, glycine is involved in protein synthesis. It appears to work in concert with L-glutamine to improve brain function, and it is one of three amino acids – along with proline and hydroxyproline – that make up the triple-helical structure of collagen. Evidence also suggests that L-glycine may stimulate human growth hormone (HGH) production, acting as a natural HGH releaser.

Sources of L-Glycine

The body manufactures glycine using another amino acid called serine. Dietary sources of l-glycine include protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, dairy and legumes. L-glycine may also be consumed as an ingredient within natural dietary supplements.

L-Glycine Benefits and Uses

Therapeutic uses of L-glycine include the treatment of schizophrenia, stroke and leg ulcers. It also appears to enhance wound healing, and may help protect the liver and kidneys from the harmful effects of certain chemicals. Evidence suggests that L-glycine functions a natural HGH releaser, or HGH secretagogue; as a result, it may have a beneficial effect on athletic performance, such as helping to build muscle and increase endurance.

Side Effects of L-Glycine and Potential Interactions

L-glycine supplements are generally considered safe for adults; no serious side effects have been reported, even at doses as high as 60 grams per day. A small number of people have experienced stomach upset, nausea or vomiting, which ceased as soon as L-glycine supplementation was discontinued.

While L-glycine appears to enhance the beneficial effects of most drugs used to treat schizophrenia, it has been shown to decrease the effectiveness of one particular antipsychotic drug known as clozapine (Clozaril). Patients taking clozapine should avoid L-glycine supplementation.

More detailed safety information on L-glycine side effects and interactions can be found on the NYU Langone Medical Center website. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking dietary supplements containing L-glycine.

L-Glycine Research and Studies

In addition to research on the use of glycine to treat medical conditions such as schizophrenia and strokes, a number of studies have explored the impact of L-glycine on HGH secretion. One such study published in Acta Endocrinologica found that intravenous glycine infusions produced a significant increase in serum HGH levels. Another study cited in Nutritional Neuroscience indicated that an oral supplement containing glycine, glutamine and niacin increased HGH secretion in healthy middle-aged and elderly subjects. In Nutrients as Ergogenic Aids for Sports and Exercise, the author conducted a research review and summarized his findings; he noted that a number of studies concur that glycine appears to stimulate HGH release and promote creatine synthesis, which can be beneficial for athletes undergoing progressive weight training.

Several other studies have examined the effects of L-glycine supplementation in relation to athletic performance and recovery. In Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, researchers found that an oral treatment of glycine and L-arginine salt of alpha-ketoisocaproic acid calcium (GAKIC) increased muscle torque and work sustained during intense acute anaerobic dynamic exercise, and enhanced overall muscle performance by delaying muscle fatigue during the early phases of anaerobic dynamic exercise. A recent animal study featured in Connective Tissue Research explored the effects of green tea and glycine on tendinitis, which commonly afflicts athletes, and determined that a green tea and glycine diet has beneficial effects that aid in the recovery process of the tendon after tendinitis.

For additional L-glycine research, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Hollywood Actors Bodybuilding Workout Videos and Tips

Hollywood Actors Bodybuilding Workout Videos and Tips

Ever wonder how actors attain their chiseled physiques for movie roles like Wolverine, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and the warriors in 300? Well, so did we. We found some great videos that divulge their bodybuilding workouts, secrets and diets. Plus, we created a star-studded Pinterest board filled with even more Hollywood movie role workouts for you to get an inside look at how these actors transform their bodies to become your favorite big screen characters.

Getting in Shape for the Movie 300

While getting ready to be in the film 300: Rise of the Empire, many of the actors trained over the course of seven months. As they trained, these actor's bodies were put under a lot of muscular and metabolic stress. They never did the same workout twice.

Gerard Butler states, “I think cardio is always a killer. Cardio. Cardio. Cardio. I hate it, but it’s the one that makes the difference. I kind of love to just go in the gym and do weights, but unfortunately, you can’t always get away with that. So, when you combine weights with circuit training, it’s a great way of building muscle in a leaner way and also burning fat because you’re doing a lot of cardio as well.”

Mark Twight, the personal trainer responsible for coming up with the workouts to sculpt those infamous six-pack abs, shares some insight regarding what it takes to get the actors in shape for a film like 300.

Transforming from Jackman to Wolverine

Ever wonder what Hugh Jackman’s diet is like as he prepares to become the Wolverine character? In this video, Hugh Jackman shares his secret, along with what he had to do while filming Les Misérables, which he was working on right before his next Wolverine film. You’ll have to watch the entire video to get the low-down on what he consumes while getting ready to play Wolverine.

Affleck's Top 5 Exercises for The Town Role

Sports nutritionist Rehan Jalali shows us how to do five of the incredible exercises Ben Affleck did with personal trainer Walter Norton, Jr., while preparing for his role in the movie The Town. Affleck's philosophy as he trained for this part was, "Intensity builds immensity."

Jalali is at the Gold's Gym in LA to give us an up-close and personal look at the technique for each exercise:

  • Weighted Pull Ups (Back)
  • Dumbbell Bench Press (Chest)
  • Supinated Curls (Biceps)
  • Walking Lunges (Legs)
  • Hanging Leg Raises (Abs)

Plus, he shares the weight Affleck was using while doing these exercises. What a great way to get lean and tight for the part.

Must-See Mass Gain Videos & Tips from Bodybuilding Pros

Maximize Your Muscle Gain Potential

Want to increase your muscle mass? If you are, you're not alone. This is a primary workout goal for most of us. However, adding muscle is oftentimes a struggle. At HGH.com, we understand how challenging gaining mass can be. We believe that three significant factors come into play:

  1. Fuel your workouts with the right foods.
  2. Commit yourself to a strong training program.
  3. Arm yourself with the right combination of mass gaining supplements.

For anyone looking for a little inspiration to pump up your mass gain potential, we've put together a few YouTube videos and a dedicated Mass Gain Pinterest board to get you on your way.

Build Muscle Mass Like Professional Bodybuilders

How can you gain the mass you want? In the video below, eight-time Mr. Olympia, Ronnie Coleman, explains how to gain good weight. He shares the changes he makes to gain weight when he’s not preparing for a competition. From making sure he takes in the right amount of protein to increasing his carbohydrate intake, he gives us the low-down on how he modifies his food intake and exercise routine to put on some good pounds.

How to Gain More Strength and Size

Whether you’re a bodybuilder entering your next bulking cycle or an experienced lifter who wants to bulk up, it’s ideal to workout both parts of the muscle. When it comes to new muscle growth and gaining mass, intensity is key. Personal trainer and bodybuilder, Jada Castellari, takes you through his high-intensity upper body workout routine and shows how he does various strip sets.

The training routine in the video below is designed for the front shoulders, chest and triceps. For the first part of the set, you overload the strength part of the muscle by using higher weight and lower reps. Then, toward the end of the set, use less weight with constant tension, while doing faster repetitions to drain the muscle of energy and overload that part of the muscle as well. If you’ve learned to master intensity, then this mass gaining routine may be just the workout you’ve been looking for to take you to the next level.

Bodybuilder Competition Poses to Show Off Your Muscle Mass

When it’s time for your bodybuilding competition, you have to be sure you do the mandatory poses in a way that best represents all of the muscles you worked so hard to build up. IFBB Pro Bodybuilder, power lifting champion and HGH.com sponsor, Ben White, did just that as he completed the mandatory poses portion of the Mr. Europe Pro IFBB competition in the video below.

How the Ingredients in ANA-GH will Help you Gain Muscle

 
ANA-GH: HGH 
Bodybuilding Supplement

 

The benefits are profoundly great. ANA-GH’s ingredient list  contains proven ingredients that do exactly as advertised.


Benefits include: Building Muscle, Preserving Lean Muscle, Increasing Endurance and Stamina, Building Growth Hormone, Improving Fat Metabolism, Building Protein, and Increasing Blood Flow.


L-Arginine - 400mg: Triple Growth Hormone Levels

 

Studies have shown that arginine can as much as triple your growth hormone levels, even into old age. And it can also help improve your exercise performance for high-intensity, short duration work outs. It’s also been linked to helping Erectile Dysfunction due to its ability to increase blood flow.

It increases fat burning, builds muscle tissue, boosts immunity, promotes healing, enhances male fertility, and more!
Your body doesn't naturally produce arginine; you must get it from your diet.

For links to clinical studies, see http://www.drugs.com/npp/l-arginine.html


L-Valine - 750mg:  Build Muscle, Repair Muscle
L-Valine is a branched-chain amino acid found in high concentration in the muscles. L-Valine cannot be made by the body, and must be acquired through food or dietary supplements. It has a stimulating effect and is needed for muscle metabolism - Building Muscle, repairing muscle, and growth of muscle tissue, and maintaining the nitrogen balance in the body. Since it is a branched-chain amino acid, it can be used as an energy source in the muscles, and in doing so preserves the use of glucose.


L-Leucine - 1500mg: Preserve Lean Muscle
L-Leucine helps preserve lean muscle tissue, it supplies the body with energy when under stress (i.e. when engaging in athletic activity), and it preserves muscle glycogen (glucose stored in muscle tissue used to power muscular contraction), it maintains nitrogen balance, and it enhances thinking abilities that can decline as physical activity becomes more intense. It also works to heal bone, skin and muscle tissue.


Additionally, L-Leucine may increase somatropin (HGH- Human Growth Hormone) secretion - a hormone that may lead to healthier joints, a slowing (and possible reversal) of the ageing process, decreases in body fat, and increases in strength and muscle mass.


L-Isoleucine - 750mg: Increase Endurance
L-IsoLeucine is probably best known for its use in increasing endurance and helping heal and repair muscle tissue. Bodybuilding requires energy and endurance. By using IsoLeucine along with Valine and Leucine, the muscles fully recover after exercise. IsoLeucine is literally broken down within the muscle tissue to provide energy.


L-Isoleucine is an amino acid, one of three known as branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). It is important in the regulation of blood sugar, and also helps increase energy level. L-Isoleucine can be obtained through the foods you eat or supplements.


L-Arginine - 400mg: Increase Growth Hormone
L-Arginine is an amino acid that the body cannot produce naturally and must be taken in supplement or by food.Arginine is necessary for the execution of many physiological processes. These physiological processes include hormone secretion, an increase in growth hormone output, the removal of toxic waste products from the body, and immune system defenses. Arginine's nitric oxide producing ability, its ability to scavenge free radicals, as well as its ability to signal muscle cells, release growth hormone, remove bad cholesterol, and enhance fat metabolism.


Acetyle-L-Carnitine - 400mg: Improve Fat Metabolism
Acetyl L Carnitine helps supply the brain with energy. It promotes biosynthesis of acetylcholine, a key neurotransmitter for brain and nerve function. Acetyl-L-Carnitine has been shown in clinical studies to benefit cognitive ability, memory and mood. It improves fat metabolism, Enhances mental quickness, Slows the effect of aging, Decreases symptoms of depression, Supports bodily functions that require high energy.


L-Alanine - 200mg: Build Protein
As an amino acid, alanine is used by the body as a building block of protein. Alanine plays a major role in transferring nitrogen from tissue sites in the body, to the liver. Alanine is also used by the body to draw upon blood sugar as an energy source.


Cysteine: Increase Blood Flow
L-cysteine supplementation can help increase blood flow and play key roles in building antioxidants, preserve lean muscle mass, and prevent muscle catabolism.


Horney Goat Weed: Added Endurance and Stamina
Horny Goat Weed has many benefits including, increased sexual drive, added sports endurance, increased stamina, restores testosterone levels and nitric oxide levels to break thru current performance plateau.

The Importance of Bodybuilding Supplements

Bodybuilding Supplements - How They Help and Why They're Important

 

 
ANA-GH
Bodybuilding Pill
Bodybuilding Supplements are the only way to truly enhance workouts. A bodybuilder can spend all day in the weight room lifting weights, but without the right substances in his or her body, he or she will not see the intended results. It takes a lot of hard work in order to build lean muscle of a normal individual's proportions. Achieving the massive bulk and tone sought by a bodybuilder requires a bit of a boost.
 
Supplements for different purposes
 
There are many bodybuilding supplements on the market and they all work to achieve different things. The world of supplements is not as cut-and-dry as figuring one supplement will help a bodybuilder achieve all the benefits they need for an intense workout. All supplements bring with them a unique set of benefits. A bodybuilder must access what he or she is looking to get out of their workout and select the proper supplements accordingly.
 
Our bodybuilding supplements are entirely safe as long as the user implements them in the correct doses. Supplements have evolved with the years and are now the only true way to efficiently work out.
 
Building muscle
 
The obvious goal of a bodybuilder's workout is to build lean muscle mass - and a lot of it. There are a wide variety of bodybuilding supplements that aid in this process and most of them center on protein. By supplying all the appropriate muscle-building enzymes, supplements centered on protein will make it easier to build muscle.
 
Check out our Bodybuilding HGH Supplements which don't necessarily focus on protein, but rather, other ingredients to naturally build your muscle: http://www.hgh.com/body-building-hgh.aspx
 
This volume of protein cannot be found in a daily diet, but only through supplement. Another upside to protein supplement is that protein is natural and safe to use.
 
Increasing stamina
 
To get a lot out of a bodybuilding workout, a man or woman needs to endure grueling and lengthy sessions. Supplements can help keep the energy flowing to make this happen. Many think that a supplement like creatine is responsible for building muscle. It is not, but does lay the groundwork for it. Creatine actually gives a bodybuilder a boost of energy so they can lift heavy weights for a longer period of time. By being able to do this, a bodybuilder can get more out of their workouts.
 
Our new ANA-GH bodybuilding supplement includes stronger ingredients than Creatine to help increase stamina.
 
Recover quicker
 
Finally, bodybuilders need to be able to recover quickly so they can continue with their workout regiment. Supplements can help aid in muscle recovery so that an athlete does not have to waste time being inactive.
 
Not only do bodybuilders need to strike a balance between the different types of supplements, but they also need to mix in the most appropriate diet and exercise routine to go along with it. Building a bodybuilder's workout and diet plan can be an intricate science, but it is one that would be entirely incomplete without the aid of bodybuilding supplements.
 
HGH.com just released a brand new Muscle Building Supplement called ANA-GH. It has so many muscle factors combined into one pill that its daily dosage is 8 pills. Don't miss out on the incredible new formula! Visit the link below.
