What is Sarcosine?
Sarcosine is a metabolite of an amino acid (N-Methylglycine) that is found in biological tissues. It may have Nootropic and testosterone boosting properties.
This supplement is an intermediate and byproduct in glycine synthesis processes and degradation. Sarcosine is metabolized into glycine by the enzyme Sarcosine Dehydrogenase.
This supplement is found almost everywhere you look. Foods such as egg yolks, turkey, ham, vegetables, and legumes all contain Sarcosine. Also, this supplement is sweet tasting and it is actually used in the creation of products like toothpaste.
It is formed from the dietary intake of Choline and the metabolism of methionine (another powerful amino acid). It is then rapidly degraded into glycine, which is an important constituent of protein and plays a role in a number of physiological processes as a prime metabolic source of components of living cells.
