Hustl® ‘Bed’ Booster Glycine - 250g
Are low glycine levels preventing your sleep from being as optimal as it should be?
If you’re struggling to attain consistent, deep and restful sleep, then you’ll be glad to know that glycine is a natural antioxidant that aids sleep in a number of ways. Clinical evidence shows that increasing a person’s levels of glycine may help to fall asleep more quickly, increase the depth and restfulness of sleep, and reduce incidence of insomnia.
First, let’s familiarize you with glycine: Glycine is both an amino acid as well as an antioxidant, and is naturally occurring in the body. Glycine has the ability to positively impact the immune system, the cardiovascular system, the metabolic system, the muscles, the connective tissue, and even cognition. It is a vital component to wellness, longevity, and of course, sleep quality.
One of the more unique aspects to how glycine can improve sleep quality and quantity relates to its ability to help lower body temperature. This may not sound like a powerful tool initially, but core body temperature tends to fluctuate and interfere with one’s ability to fall asleep and, subsequently, sleep deeply. Studies have indicated that supplementing with glycine triggers a drop in body temperature and lets people spend more time in REM sleep than they would without the supplement.
There is another body of research that has illustrated positive effects on slow wave, deeper sleep, as well: Glycine has the ability to increase the amount of serotonin that a person has. As you’re likely aware, serotonin is involved in the creation of melatonin, a primary sleep hormone. Increasing serotonin levels is part of the process in restoring healthy and dedicated sleep patterns for more refreshing sleep and more productive days.
For those seeking the opportunity to fall asleep faster, increase sleep efficiency, and improve their overall quality of sleep, glycine may be high on the list of supplements worth taking, as well as using a wearable sleep tracker to help you analyze the quality of your current sleep.
