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.

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.

Started taking it 10 days ago.
Much better than gelatin. The single ammino absorbs much easier than breaking gelatin

One of the most effective supplements I've ever taken. 3 gm before bed gives me: reduced bloating/flatter stomach, smooths my cracked heels, some reduced wrinkles, morning wood.

Dr Peat has warned me that it can be fermented by some bacteria.
