In a randomized, double-blind cross-over trial, the effects of glycine on sleep quality were examined in volunteers with complaints about the quality of their sleep.

 

The study showed that glycine ingestion significantly improved the following elements: “fatigue”, “liveliness and peppiness” and “clear-headedness.” Results suggest that glycine produced a good subjective feeling after awakening from sleep. More...

 

 

 

In this study, the effects of glycine ingestion (3g) before bedtime on subjective sleep quality were investigated and changes in polysomnography (PSG) during sleep were analyzed. Effects on daytime sleepiness and daytime cognitive function were also evaluated.

 

The study shows that glycine improved subjective sleep quality and sleep efficacy (sleep time/in-bed time), shortened PSG latency, lessened daytime sleepiness and improved performance of memory tasks. Thus, a bolus ingestion of glycine before bedtime seems to produce subjective and objective improvement of sleep quality in a different way than traditional hypnotic drugs such as benzodiazepines.

This report is a follow up to a previous study that showed how the ingestion of 3g of glycine had positive effects on sleep. This study was conducted to assess acute adverse events or a daytime sleepiness effect after using a 3-fold higher dose of 9g.

 

Results indicated that 9g doses of glycine produced neither acute serious adverse events nor a daytime sleepiness carry-over effect. More...

 

 

 

Laboratory studies in healthy young volunteers have shown that experimental sleep restriction is associated with a dysregulation of the neuroendocrine control of appetite consistent with increased hunger and alterations in parameters of glucose tolerance. More...

 

 

 

In this study, researchers attempted to determine whether slow wave sleep (SWS) is inversely associated with body mass index (BMI) and other measures of body composition.

 

Researchers found that independent of sleep duration, percentage time in SWS is inversely associated with BMI and other measures of body composition in this population of older men.  More...

 

 

 

Approximately 30% of the general population suffers from occasional sleeplessness. Given that sleeplessness causes many problems, amelioration of the symptoms is crucial.

 

This paper discusses how researches recently found that a non-essential amino acid, glycine, subjectively and objectively improves sleep quality in humans who have difficulty sleeping. In subjects given glycine, data showed a significant reduction in fatigue and a tendency towards reduced sleepiness. More...
