So, what is sodium sarcosinate?

Sodium sarcosinate is a type of salt that is commonly used as a food additive, as well as in personal care products and cosmetics. It is derived from sarcosine, an amino acid that occurs naturally in the human body. Sodium sarcosinate has the ability to act as a surfactant, meaning it can reduce the surface tension of liquids and allow them to mix more easily. This property makes it useful in a wide range of products, from shampoos and body washes to processed foods and pharmaceuticals. While it is generally considered safe for consumption in small amounts, some people may be sensitive to it and experience adverse reactions.
