Hey folks,

This morning I took a mixture of ~3g glycine powder, 90 ug K2 (MK7), and 650 mg typical otc aspirin. About an hour later, my eyes became bloodshot, followed by lightheadedness and reddened skin.

Probably a long shot, but has anyone tried this combo and had anything near these results? I'm curious as to what could have caused this.

How did you eat your gelatin? It sounds like allergy/histamine reaction to me. I never took MK7 so I have no experience with it. Aspirin sounds like a big amount.

Sounds like lactic acid to me. Youve perhaps gone too hard too fast. Did you have plenty of food with that combo?

I took 5g of glycine and had extreme muscle fatigue x 5 days ( couldn't chew a cookie without having to rest my jaw muscles mid way). Your immediate reaction sounds more like histamine.

I took them on an empty stomach (as the NOW bottle suggests), but pretty immediately had a normal breakfast. A couple of eggs, oatmeal, toast. It was while I was eating that I started feeling the light headedness, and my wife commented on my bloodshot eyes and red skin.

Why do you think lactic acid? Is there some such chemical reaction?

Just personal experience of when i first starting using aspirin and not eating enough sugar to support it. The red eyes can be a giveaway. As you've eaten this may not be the case. It may very well have been an allergic reaction to something as others have said. All those supplements are also catatoxic and improve liver function so they may have prompted a clearance response from your liver. Have you used aspirin before?

Aspirin may block prostaglandins but it increases, leukotrienes that cause allergic reactions. Quercetin blocks both reactions without destroying the enzymes needed to produce the protective stomach secretions. Not sure how glycine can help stop this negative reaction.

It was straight glycine; NOW Foods brand. Just curious, why do you and @wintagal think histamine?
I remember when I was taking NOW Foods glycine, I had a lot of trouble; puffy face, anger, stuffed nose, and general irritation among others. I only eat real cow gelatin (panna cotta/jello) or gelatinous cuts of meat. I seem to tolerate those better than pure glycine amino acid.
