Lost Sarcosine, Anyone Try glycine or L-Lysine?

I went to my friend’s house for the night and had to bring my sarcosine along. I left it outside and now it’s gone. :open_mouth:

I am all out, don’t know how that will affect me. I went to the local stores but nobody carries sarcosine. I did find L-Lysine. I asked a pharmacy tech about it and she told me she wasn’t sure if it could substitute for sarcosine or glycine.

Does anybody take glycine or l-lysine? Does it have similar effects to sarcosine?

Very sad about my sarcosine, as I had not even opened the package.

Please let me know if you have tried either L-Lysine or glycine or both, which you recommend, and the dose that you use. Thank you!!

okay, well, either way I found my sarcosine, it was inside my friend’s house.

Just wanted to mention I bought from smartpowders website and I’ll post how it is compared to brain vitaminz if I can feel any difference.

Still would like to know about glycine and l-lysine, though, so please comment if you have any experiences!

I tried glycine and l-lysine before I tried sarcosine and neither did anything. Sarcosine converts into glycine in the brain and that’s why it helps you, unfortunately it can’t cross the blodd-brain barrrier so you have to take an absolutely massive amount for it to work, like 30-60 grams per day. You might throw up doing this! L-lysine made me feel better physically but it didn’t do anything for my symptoms, I think it stimulates release of Human Growth Hormone so it will help with your side effects. I’ve been taking sarcosine for about 6 months now and I am still seeing improvements every day, don’t give up on it! I take about 3g a day. I have tried both the smarpowders and the brainvitaminz sarcosine along with ProFrontal and the ProFrintal works the best followed by brainvitamins and then the smartpowders.

Thanks so much! I, too, tried both brainvitaminz and smartpowders! I will definitely give profrontal a try next time!!

I appreciate your info! :sunflower:

I found my sarcosine, so I’m taking the smartpowders brand now, at 3-4 grams a day. I’m going to try profrontal as soon as I run out of smartpowders.

I won’t bother adding the L-Lysine or glycine from the local stores.
