Trimethylglycine (TMG) also known as betaine is an active metabolite of choline in the body. TMG is found in vegetables like beets, broccoli and spinach. It is a molecule structured as the amino acid Glycine with three methyl groups attached. TMG is an integral part of thousands of biochemical reactions in the body. Methylation is one of many metabolic processes reliant on TMG. This process is happening in the body billions of times per second and in the simplest terms, life does not exist without methylation.
Methylation is a biochemical process essential to life and necessary for good health. As we age, methylation in the body declines, which means that homocysteine levels are allowed to rise causing an increased risk of developing heart disease, cancer and more. Increased homocysteine (an amino acid) levels have a strong correlation with heart disease and is commonly noted with arterial inflammation and irritation.
TMG is effective in reducing homocysteine concentrations when taken daily. The reduction in homocysteine may occur with only one dose and keeps the reduction for as long as supplementation continues. Users can expect levels to drop by 10% in persons with normal homocysteine levels and 20-40% in persons with elevated homocysteine levels. This is a huge anti-aging benefit.
Homocysteine is commonly elevated in persons with heart health issues. High homocysteine may indicate cardiovascular complications.
TMG benefits include:
- Brain Support
- Cardiovascular Support
- Emotional Support
- Immunity Support
Dimethylglycine (DMG) is a water-soluble substance found naturally in animals and plant cells. It is found in the body in very small amounts and for only seconds at a time. DMG is also known as vitamin B15. DMG helps to optimize oxygen uptake which results in a faster recovery time from exercise. It functions as a methyl donor. Methyl donors are helpful in the synthesis of several brain chemicals and can have an influence on alertness, concentration, energy and well-being.
Literature indicates that children with autism have a significantly lower level of DMG, which is a building block for proteins and neurotransmitters. There have been reports that show that DMG can improve an autistic child’s behavior, expressive language and eye contact.
Over 25 years of research and clinical studies have demonstrated that supplementing with DMG has many positive effects.
DMG benefits include:
- Allergy Support
- Immune System Support
- Liver Support
- Nervous System Support
- Language & Speech Support
- Stress Support
