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?

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).

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?

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.

It's definitely the right kind I ordered. Betaine Anhydrous (TMG).
But I'm starting to think I got HCL marked as TMG..

My bulk TMG from HSW has a very mild, sweet flavor.

I'm actually quite shocked that the powder is marked TMG, if it's indeed HCL.
They are one of the biggest distributors of bulk supplements in Europe and that's a mistake they shouldn't make.
But I can tell you that I still had that acidic feeling/taste in my mouth/throat till I went out to dinner.. just awful..
Perhaps the worst tasting supplement I've ever had. Lol.

You should look into a capsule machine. Might seem expensive at first but definitely saves you money over the long term if you tend to buy bulk powders.

Another benefit of TMG...better sleep. I was having lackluster sleep for the last few weeks until my TMG arrived. Not such a fan of taking it in the daytime as it seems to make me tired/grouchy, but if I take it before bed on an empty stomach I sleep way deeper with much less waking up. I can get 7 hours and feel refreshed. I might try to stack it with L-Dopa and melatonin to see if the effect can be enhanced for both sleep and HGH release.

Interesting i did not know this.

Well, I don't think it's been researched per se, but anecdotally it seems to be helping me a lot in the sleep department. I went from having a really hard time going to sleep, waking up numerous times during the night and waking up before my alarm to crashing out about 45 minutes after dosing TMG and sleeping like a rock.

what happens after 6 weeks of 2.5g/TMG supplementation?
does it keep on improving or does it halt?
might just make this a staple like creatine and take it the same way
09-22-2013, 11:25 AM
We didn't measure past 6 weeks. Here is my thought.
Initial weight and volume gain is in the first 2 weeks due to cellular swelling.
Over time, that cellular swelling yields improved mechanical output, crossbridge cycling, and protein synthesis, which should yield more myofibril proteins (muscle gain irrespective of water increases).
There are no receptors to be down regulated, and you get some in your diet, so I would think you could keep using it.

Anyone have a good source they'd like to share?

For the love of all thats good, I hope this doesn't anger anyone - but I would check:
But even Vitacost has powdered TMG.
