Glycine STRONGLY upregulates 5ar activity

#21

The ones I got are 1000 mg capsules. I take 16 capsules a day, 8 in the afternoon and 8 before I go to bed.

Well, I feel slightly stronger at gym, and today it was a bit easier to get an erection while watching porn. Other than that I’m pretty much the same, it’s still a bit early though, as I said I had a triptorelin injection 10 days ago, and it takes about 3 weeks for hormones to peak after injection so my testosterone is probably low right now. I’ll keep you updated if I feel better after a while.

I’m getting a new blood test on monday, sexually I still feel the same. In general the only difference I notice is the sweat from my armpits smell awful, I don’t remember it smelling this bad since puberty. Hopefully that’s a good sign :stuck_out_tongue: . Edit: I forgot to take into account that I’ve been taking garlic pills for a few weeks now so maybe that’s what makes my sweat stink.

So I’ve been taking taking this for almost 2 months now and my condition remains the same…

Anyone finding success with glycine, especially for sleep maintenance?

You need both 5ar AND 3a-HSD to make Allopregnanolone.

Nah, this does absolutely nothing. I can’t even take more than 500 mg without getting horrible headaches. Tried dimethylglycine as well as gelatin too. Nothing. Just another ‘paper-cure’ - can’t remember the number of things that supposedly do something in vitro or in rats, yet carry none of those results over into the real world. Next!

I am about to try 3g glycine tonight for my insomnia. Anything I should know about before trying?

Also if increasing 3a-HSD leads to depletion of 5ar metabolites, then why not try taking something that boosts the latter at the same time? Or is it never that simple? Has anyone tried doing that?

Took a little over 3g a few hours before bed. I woke up after only 2 hours of sleep or less. It made me worse. More than 3 hours later and I still can’t go back to sleep.

Glycine never worked for me and I took up to 6 grams a night.
