Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Glycine is the smallest and simplest amino acid, making it versatile for use in a wide range of functions. Glycine is necessary for the production of glutathione, DNA, creatine, bile, hemoglobin, and most proteins. It also helps to promote glycogen storage, thereby making glucose readily available for energy production. Glycine also functions as a calming neurotransmitter in the brain, where it facilitates nerve impulses and is important for the maintenance of healthy sleep patterns.

Excellent Sleep Aide
Excellent Sleep Aide
I have read the other reviews. I agree with someone who wrote that having a scoop inside would make his day, funny..... Not many have mentioned how this is a fantastic sleep aide. I read about it's use in a Lyme Disease book, (the 13 top LLMD's), one LLMD wrote to use 1-3 mg of melatonin 1 hour before bed with 2-4 grams of glycine at bed time and again 2-4 grams if you awaken during the night one time. I have tried EVERYTHING, with some exaggeration, to try and fall back asleep, and this brand of glycine, in powder form has been the only natural product that has worked as well as prescription drugs. With it's use and my MD's help I am able to ween off of Klonopin from 1 mg now down to .5 mg, slow going but with it's withdrawl effects I must go slow. So this has been a real life saver for me, no exaggeration, without it I would have had to stay on the klonopin and did not want to continue that route. 4 years of it was enough... Hats off to I-herb for it's fast and easy service.....

In my opinion no one should take considerable amounts of the nutrients involved in the livers phase 1 detoxification without taking the sulfur containing amino acids involved in the livers phase 2 detoxification. Everyone should know about how the liver detoxifies. For, if you stimulate phase 1 while disregarding phase 2 detoxification then it can potentially have a very detrimental effect on both your physical and mental health. Glycine is one of the amino acids which are important for phase 2 detox.
Nice taste , cheaper then capsulas

I take this powder together with glutamine powder, and zinc 1/2 h before breakfast and supper , this for healing leaky gut . The taste is light sweet , so no need to buy capsulas. I had once a bad bottle but got a new one instead.

This is product was easy to consume, fine grade powder which dissolved well in water or in a shake. It has helped greatly with having a decent night of uninterrupted sleep when taken at night. It's fantastic value for money, given the size and the cost. I will definitely order again.

This dietary supplementation of an ethical vegan friendly glycine pure powder is made from the 100 percent of the NON GMO project verified vegan ingredients by the Now Foods that is a GMP certified brand. I have ingested the sort of the protein except for this dietary supplementation principally merely from both certified organic cake flour as well as fowl except for the sort of the special occasion, nonetheless, the total amount of the nutrition with regard to the glycine that is the one of the amino acids had never been enough, thus, I have ingested this one approximately for one year. The glycine has been the present best nutrient for the longevity for all of the class Mammalia except for the person with the Hyperglycinemia like the ketotic glycinemia that is known qua the propionic acidemia as well as the non ketotic hyper glycinemia that is known qua the glycine encephalopathy. Regarding the natural protein sources for both the vegans as well as the vegetarians, both the sort of the nuts as well as the sort of the legume have been exemplary for it, nevertheless, all of the ones have also been the exemplary parlous high goitrogens that inhibits the synthesis of the thyroid hormones, accordingly, I have never been able to commend the foodstuffs as well as the lifestyles like the vegans as well as the vegetarians for all of human beings. Furthermore, some treatises have been shown the numerical analysis that the dairy protein source has been more vegetarian friendly than the others qua the sort of the natural protein sources. Nevertheless, the sort of the dairy cattle has also been the sort of the prospective beef cattle, the dairy protein source has never been able to deem being more vegetarian friendly as well as beautiful natural environmentally friendly than the other protein sources.
