The question about glycine

Glycine promises to be a useful supplement, but I have heard that glyphosate mimics glycine, so products with a high content of glycine (such as gelatin) will contain a lot of glyphosate. I wondered how glycine is obtained. And apparently - by hydrolysis of soy protein (soy is the record holder for glyphosate) . So glycine supplements will also be contaminated with glyphosate, am I right?

I also heard that glycine from supplements does not penetrate into the central nervous system and is synthesized there again. So, does it make sense to avoid glycine from supplements?
