Glycine is indeed an amino acid. Pure glycine does have a (moderately) sweet taste, so there’s no need to worry.
I would, however, question the effect of glycine on leaky gut. Glycine is an amino acid which is present in in proteins. So if your diet contains sufficient amounts of protein (which it should!), you already obtain enough glycine to support the body’s needs. Even if your diet is glycine-deficient, your body is able to chemically synthesize glycine from other amino acids.
