Glycine is a nootropic medication which improves metabolic function in the brain. Due to its safety, it is one of the most popular and commonly sold nootropic supplements in territories and countries of the former soviet union. This product includes B vitamins which increase its nootropic effect.
Glycine is an organic compound with the chemical formula NH2CH2COOH. It is industrially produced by processing chloroacetic acid with ammonia: ClCH2COOH + 2 NH3 → H2NCH2COOH + NH4Cl. It is unique among proteinogenic amino acids in that achiral. It can be hydrophilic or hydrophobic because it only has a single carbon atom at its side chain position.
Henri Braconnot discovered glycine in 1820 by evaporating gelatine with sulfuric acid. To this day, doctors continue to use glycine as a non-narcotic solution for treating stress and mental fatigue.

The active substance in the drug is an amino acid which the human body produces to regulate metabolism and central nervous system functions. Under its influence, the body experiences lowered feelings of aggression and psychoemotional stress, as well as increased productivity. When consuming the medication, the patient will notice better sleep quality and improved mood. The drug alleviates vegetovascular disorders, particularly during menopause. It improves the patient’s condition following stroke or traumatic brain injury. The drug also lowers the toxicity of alcohol on the human body.
A higher dose of glycine in combination with a maximum dose of B vitamins widens the scope of the drug’s effects. As a result, it can work as a sedative in addition to being a nootropic and metabolic aid.
Vitamin B1 acts to normalise the state of the nervous system and stimulate thought and mental productivity.
Vitamin B6 accelerates the functional processes of the brain and helps to overcome irritability and fatigue.
Vitamin B12 speeds nerve tissue regeneration and improves concentration and memory. It plays a part in acetylcholine production, a neurotransmitter that affects learning and memory.
