Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dissolves better than others I have tried three glycine powders from Swanson -- this one SWU515, one from NOW (NWF195), and one from Natural Life (NSL036). The latter two cost less than this one from Ajipure, but they dissolve poorly. From now on, I will buy this one only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GLYCINE GLADLY I always add Glycine to all my Amino Acid cocktails. It mixes in everything easily, has a nice, naturally sweet taste, and participates with other Amino Acids (such as Glutamine, Lysine, Arginine, Ornithine) to build muscle, burn fat, improve one's physique and physical condition / strength / tone. A most important fact and benefit for me is that this group of Amino Acids is also utilized by the body to manufacture HGH (Human Growth Hormone), as well as the body's master anti-oxidant, Glutathione, and who doesn't want and need those super nutritional factors?! I consider these to be invaluable to my own anti-aging, life-extension program. You can read tons of very interesting and informative material online and everywhere these days about all of this. I started reading about it in the 1960s, and the volume of valuable material has increased exponentially since then. As a Swanson shopper, you are most likely interested in your health and wellbeing, so you will probably find all this Amino Acid, anti-aging, life extension material to your liking. I know I do. Glycine, being the smallest Amino Acid is bioavailable and readily utilized in every part of the body, so its importance throughout the body is significant, yet underappreciated. For all these reasons and more, I make sure to have a heaping tsp of Glycine powder in one of my healthy cocktails every day. Glycine is so easy to use, with that naturally sweet taste and easy miscibility, that even without having the time or opportunity to make a health cocktail / smoothie, it's a snap to just stir a tsp of Glycine powder into some water and drink it right down anytime. Personally, I always feel better / more comfortable when I have my Glycine. I've used it for many, many years. I definitely can recommend it to everyone. Works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am really beginning to like this brand... Why? because this amino-acid stuff is indeed high-quality. This is the second time that I have tried the Swansons Ultra Ajipure amino acids, and I must say, I am impressed by the purity and potency of both. Let me first-off say on this amino-acid product is not in pill form, but a beautiful white loose powder with what looks like it has shimmering tiny crystals in it. When I first got this, the small scoop that comes in the jar sank deep within the powder, and instead of just reaching in with my hands, I used a spoon to dig it out, so as to keep the amino acids as clean as possible. As far as effectiveness goes, I cannot plainly answer that, as I am currently taking several supplements. But this stuff may be working subtlety on me; and I believe it is. As far as cost? Great, considering that it is pharmaceutical-grade. Overall, I am very happy with this Swanson Ultra Ajipure line. The price seems excellent, and the purity is very promising. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AjiPure Glycine Powder Glycine is a precursor of collagen, something we older folks need to stay youthful looking. I'm giving my body the raw material it needs so that it can provide me with smoother skin. It works!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work for me As far as helping with my sleep, I did have the same results as the person that reviewed the product on March 16. It worked fine the first couple of days but it was keeping me awake on the 3rd and 4th day and I quit using it. I ordered from a different company and I have been using it for about 10 days with good results. I am extremely happy with Swanson but not with this particular product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from may help sleep I read that 3g of glycine may improve sleep quality. As a life-long sufferer of mediocre sleep, I decided to give it a try. So far I'm pleased, as it definitely doesn't hurt, and may help. I switched from melatonin to this product, and it seems that I'm sleeping as well, and waking up a bit earlier and more refreshed. A bonus is the sweet taste, which is surprising as many other amino acids are quite bitter in plain form.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Uncertain about this product Glycine is often used to supplement prostate health along with l-alanine & glutamic acid, and I take glycine in certain proprietary formulations without issue. But I have serious reactions to this Anji product that build up with use over a week's time, which I have yet to figure out the reason for. I've attempted much smaller servings but the bad results are essentially the same, only more limited. And, I've tested this powder three different times out over a year with the same unfortunate results. Unfortunately I'm not certain if this is an individual response to Anji's particular formulation or glycine. I do tolerate other formulations though, which suggests the problem is with this product, or the particular batch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improve your sleep with glycine, and your memory w Sleep great with 3g one hour before bedtime. Research my review title. You should research everything you take.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from major bang for your buck Great product and way cheaper than buying pills. Dissolves quick and taste slightly sweet. I just use water and taste fine

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful. Can be added to drinks and smoothies for extra nutrition and sweetness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it! Glycine for some reason tastes really good to me! It's sweet. And, it also improves sleep quality. I will definitely buy some more.
