- Has benefits for heart and liver health.
TMG supplement is made with anhydrous betaine -trimethylglycine, which benefits cardiovascular health by lowering homocysteine concentrations, now available to buy at Supersmart.
Also known as betaine, trimethylglycine occurs naturally in many of the body's tissues. As we get older, methylation decreases, leading to a potential rise in homocysteine levels. Raised blood levels of homocysteine increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and other age-related diseases.
As TMG is involved in the metabolism of homocysteine, it is particularly important for the prevention of cardiovascular disease. As a methyl group donor, it converts homocysteine into methionine, and then into SAMe. Studies suggest that TMG supplementation lowers homocysteine concentrations in a dose-dependant manner - by up to 20% with a daily dose of 6 g.
Animal studies indicate that TMG helps to protect the liver and increases levels of SAMe. The first stage in alcohol-induced hepatic lesions is the accumulation of fats in the liver. Human studies have shown the efficacy of TMG in significantly improving these hepatic lesions.
