What is Glycine CAS 56-40-6?

Glycine acid is glycine, also known as amino acetic acid, is the most basic substance of protein. Classified as a “non-essential” (also known as conditional) amino acid, glycine can be made in small amounts by the body itself, but because of its numerous beneficial effects, many people can benefit from consuming more food in their diet. Glycine is one of 20 amino acids used to make proteins in the body, which build the tissues that form organs, joints and muscles. Among the proteins in the body, it is concentrated in collagen and gelatin.

Glycine acid is used as a solvent to remove carbon dioxide in the fertilizer industry. In the pharmaceutical industry, Glycine acid is used as an amino acid preparation, as a buffer for aureomycin, as a synthetic raw material for the anti-Parkinson’s disease drug L-dopa, and as an intermediate of ethyl imidazolate. It is also an adjuvant drug in itself, which can treat neurogenic hyperacid and is effective in inhibiting hyperacid in gastric ulcers.
