Glycine is an inexpensive and readily available supplement with significant health benefits. Collagen can also be used, as it too contains high amounts of glycine. By inhibiting the consumption of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate hydrogen (NADPH), glycine helps lower inflammation and oxidative damage.
Glycine will also help detoxify the herbicide glyphosate, which is now found in most conventionally grown and processed foods. Glyphosate is an analog of the amino acid glycine and attaches in places where you need glycine.
Importantly, glycine is used up in the detoxification process, hence many of us do not have enough glycine for efficient detoxification. To eliminate glyphosate, you need to saturate your body with glycine.
Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt recommends taking 1 teaspoon (4 grams) of glycine powder twice a day for a few weeks and then lower the dose to one-fourth teaspoon (1 gram) twice a day. This forces the glyphosate out of your system, allowing it to be eliminated through your urine.
