If you're taking a bunch of magnesium glycinate, is this horrible because of all the glycine you're getting?

For some it will be terrible because the bunch will cause violent diarrhea alone.

 

For others it will be very beneficial because Mg and Glycine is actually in need.

 

Therefore there are no black and white answers when it comes to supplementation. One only can experiment by starting with lowest possible doses, and increase slowly and gradually over week, months and years. While monitoring all effects, relevant lab-markers and adjust doses accordingly.

 

One may find it a perfect fit, an other horrible. But please after experimenting and finding either of both, don't think in the slightest your results would apply to anyone else.

 

In my case got 0.6 g/d of Mg from diet, 1.6 g/d elemental Mg from supplements the last 10 years. About 2.6 g/d Glycine from diet, about 2.9 g/d from supplements. And most of my lab markers and health conditions improved.

 

Any other might not tolerate such amounts. Therefore always start low dose and increase gradually to find your sweet spot.

And you seriously believe because one posted cognitive decline, there couldn't be unrelated unknown confounders, or through different metabolism there couldn't be highly individual needs? And therefore there would be a one-size-fits-all?
 

Definitely not!

 

Many wont even need to supplement Glycine or much less than 3 g before bed.

Longecity has grown vast but if you use the search option in the top right hand corner you will find a number of interesting discussions about pros, cons and dosage of taking glycine. Look for instance here:

As a bodybuilder I’m experienced in violent diharrea lol
Nothing was worse than when I took 5g inositol once. I can take 1g magnesium glyciate no problem though.

In one study they used 0.8g/kg for the treatment of schizophrenia. That’s like 60g a day.

I think magnesium glycinate tastes so awful that this alone makes it bad (for me at least -- and I've been known to savor things that make other people cringe). It must be something genetic, coz I made my mom take it and she could not stand the taste either. And we like both glycine and Mg (chloride), separately.

 

No matter what they say, I believe it's the ultimate test: if it tastes good, it may be good for you. If it makes you gag, it's definitely not for you.

 

So how does it taste?
