    Betaine Anhydrous, thoughts?


    What would be your thoughts on the use of Trimethylglycine (TMG) in regards to:

    a)Hypertrophy

    b)Adipose tissue reduction

    c)"Pumps"

    d)Use for Endurance increase in resistance training?

    All that also factoring in its bioavailability orally also. Just wanted to pick your brains on this, ingredient caught my eye and I would like to know doses for it to be effective in any of those aspects (if any at all) .

    Thanks for the time Pat!

    There is a thread where someone is doing there own type of performance study. Maybe I'll see if I can bump it for results.

    2.5g is the main studied dose, unfortunately.

    And the dose he was using was sufficient for general health but likely not for ergogenic properties.

    The individual you are talking about is Zir Red who is doing his dissertaion on TMG. I would suggest that if you have questions about TMG you shoot him a PM.

    If you would like to review the research on it I have a compiled most of it in this thread - http://anabolicminds.com/forum/suppl...genic-aid.html

    As for if it works or not. After reviewing the research I think one of the main mechanisim at play here which would also benifit your typical gym goer is the increased methylation capacity which will reduce Hcy-Thiol and thus improve protein synthesis. This would be most profound in those individuals who do not eat veggies regularly.

    This to me seems to be the best reason to take it as the other benifits (nutrient partitioning, increased GH pulse, IGF1, etc) has questionable research and conflicting research so it is not as clear but hopefully ZirReds study would help clear some of it help.

    betaine is not gonna do anything noticeable in any of those areas. that doesnt mean its inclusion in a supplement formula is a complete waste.
