Product Description

WHAT IS TRIMETHYLGLYCINE (TMG)? Trimethylglycine, commonly abbreviated to TMG, is a trimethyl derivate of the amino acid Glycine. TMG has been shown to increase power after only 15 days of supplementation, with one study showing a benefit after only 7 days of supplementation! Another research study found that supplementing with 2500mg TMG for 15 days, increased the number of repetitions performed with 90% of one repetition maximum (Hoffman et al, 2009). In cyclists, TMG supplementation increased peak power by 6.4% (Czapala, 2010). In summary, if you're a sportsperson or are simply looking to increase your performance in the gym, TMG would be a great addition to your supplement arsenal! WHERE IS TMG FOUND? Trimethylglycine is naturally occurring and can be found in animals, plants and microorganisms. Examples of dietary sources include seafood, wheat-germ, spinach and quinoa. PERFORMANCE BENEFITS The main benefit of using a TMG supplement is to increase power, which is of huge benefit to a whole range of sports and anyone looking to improve their performance in the gym. As above, research has proven that supplementing with 2500mg TMG significantly increased power across a number of exercises. The exact mechanism of action is unknown; however, it has been hypothesised that, as TMG contributes to Creatine synthesis, performance increases are a result of increased Creatine levels. HEALTH BENEFITS Low TMG levels have been shown to correlate with an unfavourable lipid profile. Further research is still needed however, to establish if TMG supplementation improves lipid profile. Other research suggests that Trimethylglycine may help to protect the liver, due to its action as a methyl donor. TMG is also an osmolyte and may protect cells against damage from environmental stress by increasing water retention in cells. References: Czapala, R., Swenson, T. & Craig, S.A.S.

Indications

Combine with Complete All in One to increase power. Anecdotal reports also suggest that TMG also stacks well with Creatine - particularly for those who are usually non-responders to Creatine. TMG can also be used in conjunction with other Pre-Workout Supplements.

TMG (trimethylglycine) is an excellent supplement but this one doesn't tell you how much you're taking. To know what you're doing, it's advisable to have some idea how much TMG there is in 1 teaspoon (for example). TMG usually comes in tablets or capsules of 500, 750 and 1000 mg (Do not take DMG or dimethylglycine. Only take trimethylglycine or TMG.)

Dr. McCully wrote the excellent "The Heart Revolution" but did not even mention his research and discovery of the powerful benefits of TMG. He deserves the Nobel Prize in medicine yet the establishment has ignored and even ostracised him. Instead they shouted to the skies about the dangers of cholesterol. Well, it turns out those with low cholesterol (yes, LOW) are more likely to suffer heart attacks! How could cholesterol, a compound that the body (liver) makes for so many uses, ever have been classified as a health hazard?! In addition to all its other uses in the body, cholesterol is a first-line ANTI-OXIDANT, and so the body produces more of it when the diet is low in the main ones (Vitamins A, C, E, selenium).

Patrick Holford writes: only modest reductions of homocysteine have been reported with combinations of B6, B9/folate (avoid folic acid, which is the synthetic version and can cause cancer), and B12 (usually 5-20% reduction). To put this in perspective, using a combination of B6, B9, B12, TMG and zinc, plus diet and modest lifestyle changes, Holford says he has often seen 50% reductions in three months.

As Dr L Wilson writes: TMG is a vitamin-like substance. It functions as an energy booster, methyl donor and more. TMG is also called betaine because it was first isolated from sugar beets, so is relatively cheap; the powder form is cheaper but tastes bad.

I have only just started to take this so it is early days yet, it has a bitter after taste after the initial sweetness but that is probably because I popped it directly into my mouth. It tastes better diluted with water. I will update this review in about 6 weeks time and say if it has had any effect on my health.
