All aboard the Betaine train.

  1. swanson sells the betapower brand TMG

    90 capsules 500 mg per capsule. at.... i forgot the price but fairly cheap
    but at 2 - 3 grams a day a bottle would only last 12 days


  2. I started taking TMG a few days ago in 1g doses (2g daily). Getting serious GERD, even after meals that Im not dosing TMG with. Hopefully my body adjusts soon because my stomach is lacking its usual acidity.

  3. Smartpowders has 200 grams of betaine for around $7. They kill you with shipping though.

  4. Livelong makes this in bulk.

  5. I know Jarrow has 500mg tablets. 120 tab bottle. I think they sell a powder too, which wouldn't be bad. The tablets taste fairly sweet. Not really sure how Jarrow compares price wise to others. I only bought it to supplement the TMG I get from GreenMag.

    I see it for $11 plus free shipping right now. 24 servings if you need the full 2.5g.

  6. Just an extra post to make sure people buying betaine (trimethylglycine/TMG) are NOT buying betaine HCL.

    Very different purposes lol.

  8. Betaine is really interesting stuff, and I've always thought so (I remember AEN years ago promoting it).

  9. Health Supplement Wholesale Warehouse has kilo's for $24 I've used their noots and they seem legit. Fast shipping. I'd go with Nutra if they stocked it again.

  11. You wouldn't get enough TMG from beets, although they are good for overall health.

  16. Jason, I am interested to know if you have a hypothesis to any reasoning behind the differences between microcycle 2 and microcycles 1 and 3 in terms of results?

    I discussed a few things in the text. One thought was that perhaps betaine works best for moderate-higher rep training (hypertrophy 8-12) that creates a larger metabolic demand vs. lower rep training (4-6 as micro cycle 2 was) that creates a smaller metabolic demand. that was for the upper body.

  20. ZR,

    I take TMG (750 mg) three times a day; each time with a Jarrow B-Right.

    Do you have any thoughts or observations as to synergy between TMG and B-Complex?

  21. Improved Hcy metabolism. Which, based on our study results, likely isn't going to enhance gains (it won't hurt them by any means, though).

    Great, that is the reason I am taking the two together. The joy of having a family history of heart disease.....

  23. Only tried TMG in the form of Condense, so not really sure how it will taste in bulk. I did some research and most say it has a mild sweet taste.

    Ordered bulk TMG from a big UK supplier and just tried some in water.. it's so sour it's undrinkable.. I mean, it's so sour, I had to spit it out.
    Tried to mask the taste with whey, but the taste is just awful.

    I've looked into HCL and apparently it has that sour taste.. did I get the wrong kind of Betaine?

    The bag says TRIMETHYLGLYCINE POWDER (TMG) and the content looks a bit like sugar.

    Any suggestions to get it to go down quicker?

    I am not doubting your experience, but the bulk TMG I have is very bland, with maybe slightly sweet overtones.

    It is NOTHING like what you are describing.

  25. Thx Beau.

    This is def not mild. Lol.
    Nothing can mask this taste and it def not sweet.
    Very sour and acidic.

    Will try and contact them and hear what they have to say.
