I have been taking collagen which seems to help a little. Perhaps not enough to be worth taking long term if not for the reason I'm also taking it to help repair gut permeability.
True, I didn't know about that, interesting to know.Some of the research on the microclots made me stop as they attach and form around collagen
Its a weird one it seemed to help, then it made me worse.

I have been trying to not rely on it for doing extra activity, because it does feel like it gives me an energy boost but perhaps does not increase my PEM threshold.
I wonder if it helps because we are preferentially burning amino acids (possibly because of the itaconate shunt), but if we burn too much of them it could increase ammonia levels a lot and so be counterproductive.
I've gotten temporary benefits from BCAAs and carnitine (blocking/countering effects of something else), but none of the listed supplements boosted my energy. Blocking other symptoms can sometimes feel like having more energy, but really it's more of a reduction in the energy needed to accomplish tasks.
How much did you take daily and for how long?
