I have rediscovered this (pretty old) evidence and wonder if there are new results or experience from LEF members:

A combination of the amino acids glutamic acid, alanine, and glycine (390 mg capsules- 2 caps three times a day for two weeks, then 1 cap three times a day thereafter) was found to be effective in BPH treatment, with significant improvement in nocturia (56% treated patients, 15% placebo), urgency (66% treated, 11% placebo), frequency (43% treated, 15% placebo), and delayed micturition (50% treated, 0% placebo) in a double-blind, placebo- controlled study of 45 men.
37 The mechanism for this improvement has not been elucidated.
