SIDE EFFECTS & FURTHER INFORMATION

CONCENTRATION OF TMG

There are no anti-caking agents or any other kinds of fillers present in this supplement, as it is entirely food grade.

TMG SIDE EFFECTS

Other than the usual side effects that might be suffered by anyone that takes too much of any supplement (nausea, upset stomach, diarrhea, etc.), there are no other reported side effects. As with most other supplements, a doctor should be consulted before taking it, and women who are lactating or pregnant should avoid it until adequate consultation has been received.

TIPS

Betaine was first identified in sugar beets in the 19th century. It can also be found in many different dietary sources including beans and legumes, grain cereals, wine, seafood and leafy green vegetables.

This supplement can be taken in conjunction with Creatine Ethyl Ester Malate, Creatine Monohydrate or Creatine Ethyl Ester for muscle mass gain. The taste of Betaine Anhydrous could well be described as sour or tart. It can be mixed easily in a variety of solutions as long as they are heated beforehand. This includes plain water. There is also a taste difference between the more mild form of Betaine and the potent HCL Betaine.

Very Pleased With The Product
This seems to be a very clean product. I use Betaine primarily as
a workout supplement but as a 50+ man I also am interested in the potential heart health implications.*

Betaine gives bodybuilders more muscle and less fat.
Fast shipping, Great price, & Free of: Sugar, soy, dairy, yeast, gluten, corn and additives..
Bodybuilders who take a daily 2.5 g betaine [structural formula shown here] for six weeks will improve their body composition. Sports scientists from Coastal Carolina University draw this conclusion in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition. But how betaine stimulates muscle build-up and fat breakdown at the same time remains a mystery.
Betaine
The reason most nutritional scientists are interested in betaine has to do with the role it plays in converting the potentially dangerous amino acid homocysteine [structural formula shown here] into a harmless compound. The figure below shows this process.
Homocysteine is further converted into homocysteine thiolactone [formula shown here], which inhibits the synthesis of muscle proteins, probably mainly by interfering with the functioning of the insulin receptor. [[J Mol Endocrinol. 2005 Feb;34(1):119-26.]
Bodybuilders eat large amounts of animal protein, which means they ingest large amounts of methionine. Maybe, the researchers reasoned, that's what causes them produce so much homocysteine thiolactone that betaine supplementation speeds up their muscle growth.
Study
The researchers tested their hypothesis by doing an experiment with two dozen experienced recreational bodybuilders – men aged between 18 and 35. All of the men followed the same intensive training schedule for six weeks. Half of them were given a placebo; the other half took 2.5 g betaine every day.
Results
At the end of the six weeks the bodybuilders who had taken betaine had lost a couple of percent fat mass. On top of that, the betaine supplementation also resulted in a significant increase in lean body mass. The scans that the researchers did showed that the bodybuilders in the betaine group had also gained more muscle in their arms.
The amount of homocysteine thiolactone [HCTL] was lower in the betaine users in week 2, week 4 and week 6 of the study in comparison to the amount theThe researchers observed no significant effects of betaine on maximal strength or power.
Mechanism unknown
Despite the effects they observed on the concentration of homocysteine thiolactone, the researchers don't think they have uncovered the mechanism through which betaine improves muscle mass and breaks down fat. At the start of the experiment the participants' concentration of homocysteine thiolactone was 0.028 nanomoles per millilitre. That's low. The range is 0.011 to 0.473 nanomoles per millilitre. "Based on the small differences in HCTL changes, betaine supplementation may have impacted body composition via other mechanisms", the researchers write.
One possibility the researchers suggest is that betaine works as a natural synthol. "Because betaine is a powerful osmolyte, the increases in lean mass may have been due to cellular swelling without an appreciable increase in myofibril protein accretion." y had at the start of the study [BL].

BETAINE
I mix Betaine with my preworkout and overall it is a good supplement. I take 5g per serving. *

Beteine
I take 1.5g pre and 1.5g post workout and believe it is helping with my performance. This is another quality product from BS! One thing to keep in mind about Betaine is that it absorbs water in the air very easily and the desiccant packets must be kept in the container (I add a few extra because it gets damp otherwise).*

On 7/3/2018 Carson said...

It works plain and simple.
Ive noticed a real difference after using this product. Betaine helps me get that extra rep or 2. I combine it with my beta alanine and creatine hcl. Makes a great pre-workout combo! Give it a try!*

Odorless and tasteless
We've used several bags of this over the last two years, and the product has been uniform in texture (no clumps), and odorless and tasteless. We give it to our old horses for their joint inflammation, and to ourselves on the same general principles (can't grow spinach all year round).*

TMG with stack
This product has been working great when I mix it with my bulk L-Citrulline, Creatine, and Beta Alanine. I use these as my pre-workout. Insane pumps. Much cheaper to get these products in bulk than to spend $40 dollars for an underdosed month supply of a pre-workout.*

Quality Betaine Anhydrous
I just purchased this product to replace a commercial brand that I have been using, Bulk Supplements' Betaine Anhydrous does not have the same fishy smell as the commercial brand, but it does have the same sweet taste as the commercial brand at a much lower price, as with most of their products...I'm expecting good results!*

life changing
did the research/suspected i have a cbs defect/methylation pathway issue. cdn't get a dr to do more than dx mcad and rx multiple anti-histimines. tried histidine: no help. can't go out in sun, can't eat. (developed mast cell activation disorder after long term rx treatment) tried betaine tmg: in a few days, had no more 'mast attacks', could eat things that triggered them the last year, and felt human again.
as with all the products i've ordered, great value, fast shipping. beet sugar derived, tastes faintly sweet to me. Mixes fine.*

Betaine Anhydrous Trimethylglycine (TMG) Powder
I looked up the benefits of (any kind of) betaine listed on MEDLINE of the National Medical Library as abstracted by GreenMedInfo. Each title refers to a peer-reviewed clinical trial often randomized, double-blinded, and placebo controlled:

1. A dietary supplement containing melatonin, l-tryptophan, vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin B12, methionine and betaine, is superior to omeprazole in treating GERD.
2. A supplementation with Boswellia, betaine and myo-inositol reduces fibroadenoma dimension in young women.
3. Choline, betaine, and choline-containing compounds was inversely associated with colorectal cancer risk.
4. Dietary choline and betaine consumption could significantly reduce the risk of breast cancer.
5. Folate and betaine can attenuate possible adverse effects of moderate alcohol consumption.
6. Betaine attenuates Alzheimer-like pathological changes and memory deficits induced by homocysteine.
7. Betaine may exert an anti-atherogenic effect by inhibiting aortic inflammation in atherosclerosis.
8. Betaine may have a therapeutic role in polycystic kidney disease.
9. Betaine may potentially be used to delay the onset of complications associated with diabetic retinopathy via inhibition of retinal neovascularization in patients with diabetes.
10. Betaine supplementation improves the atherogenic risk factor profile in a transgenic mouse model of hyperhomocysteinemia.
11. Betanin significantly inhibits lung tumorigenesis in A/J mice and induces apoptosis in lung cancer cells.
12. Dietary betaine increases Fgf21 levels to improve metabolic health in mice.
13. Betaine exhibits tumoricidal effects and acts as a biological response modifier in cancer treatment by inducing apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in a dose and time-dependent manner.
14. Betanin and betaine extracted from beetroots had some anticancer effects against liver cancer cells.
15. Betanin may be responsible for the effect of beetroot products on neutrophil oxidative metabolism and its consequences, DNA damage and apoptosis.*

Bump In Your Pump
This betaine TMG is one heck of a supplement. Been taking it for a couple of weeks now and can already tell a major difference at the gym! I definitely do not fatigue as quickly which helps me pump out a few more reps to make sure I completely obliterate my muscles. Will be using this stuff until the day I quit lifting. *

Quality Product
Purchased this product after reviews from outside sources. No frills process. The product is what it says it is and you get what it says it is. Pricing was better than what I could find elsewhere and added free shipping for over $50 order. My only critique is the packaging. It comes in a resealable pouch, but the powder for all items in my order was stuck in the seal liner and is difficult to close properly. I prefer powder supplements but may turn to capsules to avoid this in the future.*

Betaine anhydrous
I first read about Betaine anhydrous (TMG) as being a methyl donor, which among other things helps to re-build telomeres (the "caps" at the ends of DNA). So it is used as an anti-aging supplement. A nice side effect is that it makes creatine phosphate work better. I take it prior to workouts w/ creatine and have put on some muscle rather quickly. This is a great product!*

On 3/21/2017 Don said...

Consistently Good
First time ordering this product. As consistent with everything else I've received from Bulk Supplements, the quality is excellent.

Using this for pre and post workout. Mixes in easy. Would be lying if I started preaching the benefits of this Betaine, as it's too soon to notice, but if Betain works for me, I'm pretty confident that Betaine from Bulk Supplements will be the brand I opt for.

Shipping was fast, even thought I opted for the slower, free version and ordered three other products.

Keeps My Homocysteine low
This is my 2nd order of TMG/Betaine. I add one teaspoon to my morning collagen smoothie. First order lowered my HCY from 11 to 7. The holidays came and I forgot to reorder so didn't take any the month of December and most of January. Blood work showed HCY at 13 - way too high. I immediately ordered more and will report back in 3 months. This product, along with other B vitamins keep the methylation system going and end result is homocysteine being converted properly. TMG is awesome for this. If you have not had your homocysteine levels checked (doctors don't routinely check this), ask for it. Major indicator of future heart disease. Good numbers are 6-7. *

TGM / Betaine
I stack this with creatine and HMB and have had great results. Helps endurance and in combatting fatigue. Mixes very well with nearly anything, can't even tell it is in my drink. Would definitely recommend.*

On 1/15/2017 CJ said...

Great Quality, and even greater quantity for the low price
Started stacking this with glutamine, creatine, glycine, and bcaas. I feel a huge difference in my workouts after adding Betaine Anhydrous TMG. This product is great for pre-workout or to take during your workout as well. It fights off fatigue which used to set in much faster for me. My workouts have since then increased in time and I've been able to get a much better pump. I would recommend this product to anybody trying to fight early fatigue and improve their overall workouts. *

Makes more oxygen available to extremities
This is a great product to make more oxygen available to extremities. Dimethyl glycine has been the Russian treatment of choice since the 1960s to prevent gangrene. A blood test for homocysteine (HCY) shows how much of this you need, since HCY needs a methyl group to be converted back to methionine. I make sure my HCY level is under 7.*

-TMG -
I got my hands on some of this TMG, because I thought that it might be something like the amino acid Glycine. Glycine is one of the supplements I use the most for its powerful neurological benefits.

This did not turn out to have the same properties that Glycine does, but it's nice to have around. I gives you a tingly pleasant feeling, and kind of a rush after you take it. It has a sweet taste, and that vague rotten fish smell that some of the powders have.

If you are working out, and you make stacks for yourself or others, this powder really is something to have in there with the other stuff. It's great to work out hard and drink a protein shake and feel it working. With a little bit of this in there, you'll need to sit down for a while to let the buzz wear off. Nice.*

Impressively quick shipping. Bulk Supplements sets the standard for excellence
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. TMG is not the same thing as betaine hydrochloride. It is typically consumed in doses of 1000-3000 mg daily.

TMG is used for:

1. Lowering homocysteine. Homocysteine is an amino acid that, in excess, is irritating to the arteries and is strongly associated with inflammation and hardening of the arteries. In fact, the level of homocysteine correlates much better with heart disease than high cholesterol.

Homocysteine is becoming better known these days but why has it taken so long? Even where it is mentioned as a major marker for heart problems, the advice is to take
- B6, best as pyridoxal-5-phosphate, the form it takes in the body
- B9, best as methyl-Folate - not folic acid, which is synthetic and can cause cancer
- B12, best as methyl-cobalamin, not cyanocobalamin (lacks methyl groups)

These B vitamins are important and deficiencies of B9 and/or B12 can cause anemia well as other major health problems (and they should always be taken together). However, TMG is more effective than any of these for lowering blood homocysteine levels.

TMG is a methyl-group donor, which degrades to DMG when it has donated one methyl group to homocysteine to render it harmless. It acts in DAYS to bring down the blood homocysteine level.

High homocysteine occurs when there is not enough TMG or B9/B12 to donate enough methyl groups. There can be other causes, but this is the major cause. A deeper cause for this is the presence of mercury and copper toxicity, which are almost universal. However, the problem can be solved with a diet high in TMG and folate/B9 (must always be taken with B12, as they are partners in many body processes).

High homocysteine accumulates in the blood and is toxic to blood vessels, causing plaque formation which leads to occlusive vascular disorders such as coronary artery disease, heart attack, stroke, mini-stroke, deep vein thrombosis, and narrowing of arteries. High homocysteine, however, causes many other problems. It causes a deficiency of methionine, and this, in turn, can cause a deficiency of SAMe, causing depression in some people. Methionine is also needed for other biochemical reactions involving protein synthesis, another critical body function. In fact, reducing excessive homocysteine helps with conditions ranging from osteoporosis and birth defects to cancer and aging. It also helps with antioxidant protection, as well.

#2. Helping with liver detoxification. Methyl groups are absolutely essential for the Phase 2, P450 liver detoxification pathway. Within this critical biochemical sequence of events, fat-soluble or otherwise poorly soluble toxins that are difficult for the liver to remove are joined to a methyl group, and this helps prepare them for removal from the body. This is an amazing and vital chemical detoxification ability. In MOST people, it does not work well due living in a very toxic world.

Specifically, the methylation reactions enables toxins to become much more soluble in water. This allows the body to remove the toxins much better, and it often neutralizes some of their toxic properties, as well. These toxins include all of the toxic metals in many forms and compounds, as well as hundreds of toxic chemicals. Much more could be written about this amazing system and how critical it is today for our health. This is one of the main benefits of TMG supplementation, I believe.

#3. Alleviating depression. TMG increases the body's natural production of SAMe or S-adenosyl methionine. This chemical can help reduce depression, in some cases. SAMe is an expensive supplement and does not seem to be as effective as TMG.

#4. Reducing the chances of diabetes. Methyl groups are involved in insulin release and insulin activity. When the body does not have enough active methyl groups, diabetes is much more likely to arise.

#5. Avoiding genetic problems. Methyl groups are needed for protein synthesis, also called biosynthesis. This is the copying of our genetic code from the DNA to RNA, and then from there the synthesis or formation of every chemical in our bodies. The copying of the DNA is also called genetic transcription.

Without enough TMG, biosynthesis can slow down, telomeres can shorten, and genetic errors, also called transcription errors, multiply, and health is definitely worse.

#6. TMG is good for those with an MTHFR defect. Over 50% of the world's population today has a mild to severe copying error in their cells that reduces the biosynthesis of folate in their bodies. This is mistakenly called a "genetic defect", when it is no such thing. It is a transcription error or polymorphism or abnormal gene expression. This is an error in copying the DNA code, and not a problem with the DNA code itself.

#7. Profound effects on the brain, digestion and other body systems. TMG seems to affect many body systems, probably because methylation reactions are vital throughout the body.

Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects are claimed and appear to be true, although there does not seem to be much medical literature about them.

Side effects. A few people do not tolerate TMG well. They may just not need very much of it. However, research indicates that, in some cases, the problem is that it brings up psychological issues or it detoxifies them too quickly.

In particular, men or women who have deep-seated resentments and perhaps some ambivalence about men seem to have more trouble taking TMG. It appears that TMG activates an enzyme system that is dormant or less active in those with male resentment issues. Taking TMG, for these people, can cause rather severe symptoms or anger, fear, depression or anxiety.

If this occurs, just reduce the dosage to a comfortable dose. The symptoms promptly go away when one reduces or stops the TMG. However, if one can tolerate the symptoms, one may move through the retracing of relationship issues much faster, so take what you can.*

Betaine Anhydrous Trimethylglycine (TMG) Pure Powder is an excellent product and through search and study I found this to be the best deal on the internet. delivery is fast and on time and with free shipping over 49$ or more, you just cannot beat it.*

Pre Workout Stack
Adding into my pre-workout stack. I take BCAAs, L-Citrulline, Glutamine, AAKG, and now this TMG (betaine) and will be adding in DAA. Needed TMG to add in DAA to offset any side effects from DAA. This stuff gives you added energy can tell right away. Best price online for almost all products on the site.

Beware of smell it's fishy but that's normal for betaine. I did notice my breath smell a little fishy, even after brushing my teeth, but I need to supplement with more vitamin B2 (riboflavin) to decrease this. Supposedly 200mg of B2 will help with this odor. Based on studies 1.2 grams of betaine taken 2 times a day is the correct amount to see added workout improvements. Will try this and see if I notice a big increase.

Adrenaline rush
Great stuff gives me lots of energy in the gym. It works even better with the L-Lysine HCL and L-Arginine HCL that Bulk Supplements carry . Best products and price out there!*

TMG - As pure as it gets.
I have recently become interested in this product. Trimethylglycine functions as an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory; it boosts energy and it is a methyl donor. It protects the liver and lowers homocysteine.

I want to get away from regular vitamins with their fillers and additives and the bulk products at BulkSupplements arae excellent.

An excellent product, very clean, nicely packed and shipped promptly. I would very much recommend this.*

Great for Methylation Support!
Love this bulk version of TMG, as I not only use it for myself, but also for my two horses and my little dog! Many (but not all) of us can be helped by more "methyl donors" and I have found this nice, clean, free of junky additives product to be a great addition to my supplements. At this great price, it makes using it for my larger "family members" very reasonable. Homocysteine level is now at 6! Right where it belongs! Great products.... (I use several other things too) Fast Shipping.... What more can you ask for?? Thank you Bulk Supplements!*

TMG
Excellent supplement. Using in a pre- and post-workout drink mix along with Creatine Monohydrate, Beta Alanine, L-Citrulline DL-Malate, and BCAAs (2:1:1). Highly recommended. *

Keeps me going
I had heard that the Auburn football team uses beet juice to help keep them going during football games so when I read that TMG is derived from sugar beets I tried it out. I must say, especially when doing HIIT, I can tell I have more endurance and don't tire so quickly.
This is now part of my daily pre-workout drink and BulkSupplements is my sole source supplier!*

What can I say? Got it fast, got a very reasonable price, does exactly what I wanted it to. Bulk Supp is the best.*

TMG powder
I'm taking this product to reduce my homocysteine levels. I thought I could mix it with water, but I find the odor is too strong, so I'm making capsules out of the powder. Note that since there are no anti-caking agents the powder does clump up a bit, even for capsules, but overall I'm very satisfied. Perhaps Bulk Supplements could make this available in crystal form??*

Good Stuff
This was my first time purchasing Betaine TMG from Bulk Supps, but I've purchased TMG elsewhere before. I can say without a doubt this is good TMG - tastes, smells, and looks exactly like it should so I know it's legit!

Betaine TMG has a wide variety of health benefits and can even help increase power output in the gym. I can personally attest to the power output benefits as someone who has been lifting 5 days a week for the past two years - the effect is quite subtle but noticeable. Betaine TMG also helps with the uptake of creatine which is another great benefit to lifters.*

Trying it out....
I take quite a few supplements for health and training. I used one of my free samples to try this out. I'm very impressed by the customer service of Bulk Supplements and look forward to seeing if I'll add this to my regime. *

A plus for my hair care lint
I bought this to add to my honey line of hair care products. I like it because of its anti inflamitory and anti bacterial properties. It is also nstural which makes it a good selling point. • Improved hair strength.
• Retention of its initial resistance to yield for a longer period.
• Less prone to fracture.

Increases Power Output
A study where subjects took 1.25g of TMG twice daily, noticed an increase in power output. There were also slight increases in volume and endurance. While this was only one study, the anecdotal support for this supplement is strong.

I have been adding in 1.5g to my pre and post workout shake for the past month and have been setting new PRs since then. This supplement was the only addition during this time with my calories kept constant.*

Betaine is Off the Charts
For some of you that don't know, betaine has been shown to increase athletic performance and the uptake of creatine and amino acids. Not only that, it is an effective lipotropic agent. It mixes quite well, and has been working just fine. I feel good in the gym while supplementing this into my morning amino drink. Solid product and part of my every day routine.*

Good Product & Company
I decided to try Betaine Anhydrous after reading a lot about it recently as it seems to be gaining in popularity and has some scientific backing. It is more popularly none as TMG and in most places i looked was sold in capsules.

I chose this product from bulk supplements since it is sold in bulk powder form--it is much cheaper than the capsules and I can measure out the amount I want and easily mix as desired. I usually take it with creatine as it is supposed to help with creatine uptake.

This was my first order from this company and they shipping was quick (same day in this case) and product was well packaged and everything was professional. As with most supplements, the effectiveness of the supplement is up for interpretation, but I'm sufficiently satisfied after a few weeks of use to continue evaluating. If your looking to try it or already use it, i would recommend this as quality source.*
