    Does it do anything for you?
    If you still take it - what dose?

    If you really feel an effect from taking it- how long did it take til you felt that ?



    Edit: same questions for k2

    Second day. I don’t feel anything. I took 9 grams yesterday.

    It seems to improve bileflow.

    Adding glycine is one of the best things one could do for health. And with the right powder you should absolutely feel a calming effect with 1-3 grams.

    Besides that it boosts your mood throughout the day, increases mental clarity and decreases water retention. At least that's my experience. I think it's a very powerful anti-cortisol/anti-serotonin substance, and it's natural and therefore safe.

    For me, 250mg-1000mg glycine, plus 1/2 that amount of accompanying proline, has greatly reduced cracked heals.

    I’m still determining whether it helps with my digestion.

    It can make me tired.

    Related question- does glycine have a weird smell to you all? Almost like a faint, cheesy smell?
    Or maybe I just got a bad batch.

    I just sniffed inside my glycine capsules container and could hardly pick up a scent. If you want a bad smelling amino acid, try citrulline.

    Yes, 2 tablespoons of gelatin with 4 grams of glycine 2x per day. Gelatin used to make me sleepy but my body has adapted. Glycine used to cause flatulence but I now mix it with the gelatin in boiling water and it no longer does.

    Glycine is undoubtedly one of the reasons my alcohol craving has disappeared. I used to drink 20 half litres of beer on Friday nights and no longer drink at all (except 2 at an occasional social gathering). Together with lithium and methylene blue, it keeps me happy and kind every single day (which is the opposite of what I was from my early teens until recently).

    I'm a big fan of glycine. In time, when settings and skills permit, I'd like to make oxtail or pigs feet daily. Until then I'll settle suboptimally for glycine supplementation.
