The Living Force
mugatea said:I suffer from anxiety/ocd and suffer from trich (hair pulling) my bro is schizophrenic/alcoholic and my mind is intense and non stop, I also have trouble focusing and sleeping all night long so I'm very interested in this Glycin.
I have OCD too. I take one GABA 750mg and one 200mg timed release 5 HTP a day. I notice the GABA seems to help more than the 5 HTP, this being noticed when I forget to take it. I've also recently made an effort to drink green tea (which although has caffeine, has calming theanine too), and chamomile which is supposed to help with anxiety. These all seem to keep me at an acceptable level.
Interesting that pork rinds are 12% glycine. I've been eating them more, and it's usually about 25-40g. So I get 3-4.8g per meal. And I eat a bowl of bone broth (75-100g) every day. If it is so that those amino acids are best taken as a complex, then it may be a good idea to put gelatin into your tea. I might try that, or just getting the glycine powder.
