Betaine Anhydrous Trimethylglycine (TMG) Powder
What is Betaine Anhydrous Trimethylglycine (TMG)?
Betaine anhydrous trimethylglycine (TMG) is an amino acid and one of the building blocks of protein. TMG contains three methyl groups and functions very closely with other nutrients like choline, folic acid, and vitamin B12.
The word “anhydrous” means “without the presence of water.” Betaine anhydrous is a naturally-occurring compound found in various grain and vegetable products. Betaine TMG is unique because it has the ability to donate one of its methyl groups which means that it can support essential chemical processes in our bodies like liver function, cell replication, and detoxification.
TMG may help strengthen muscles and improve endurance at the gym. It helps support a healthy liver and contribute to a healthy heart.
