Tmg/betaine

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. Bought 150g of TMG a while back, had it sitting around until I started taking the bottles recommended 2100mg a day with my sns creatine monohydrate and sns DAA about a week ago. Glad to hear there are possibly additional benefits to its supplementation!

    Likely no effect, but should be positive if anything.

    I think smart powders has it in bulk.

    To anyone purchasing betaine, make sure you get the anhydrous and not the HCL.

    why.. whats the difference. I get mine from sp to.

  5. Betaine HCL is for low stomach acid and too much would have a negative effect on your health (stomach).

    TMG (betaine anhydrous) is not the same as betaine HCL

  9. Can you please provide your opinion on the other supplements one should take w/ TMG to control homocystein? What are your thoughts on adding supplemental methionine?

    The question is why are you trying to control or lower homocysteine? Do you have homocysteinemia (elevated Hcy levels)?
    Folate will also reduce Hcy levels.

    Taking extra methionine will actually elevate Hcy. This is how they determine a supplements effects on Hcy...they provide a methionine load after the supplement has been taken and absorbed. Extra dietary Met (that is not used in protein synthesis) eventually is converted to Hcy...
    Met <--> Hcy

    and having too much Met will push the reaction in the Hcy direction.

    Thank you – let me provide some additional information.
    I am almost certain I am (very) under-methylated. I believe my histimine levels are very high.

    To address this I will be taking TMG, GABA, P-5-P, Tyrosine,
    Folinic Acid, MethylB12, Creatine, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Zinc, Methionine, and Magnesium. I want to avoid driving my homocysteine up, thus the addition of things like Foliniv Acid, MethylB12, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6.

    You may want to keep away from chlorogenic acid and glycocyamine as well.

    Thank you.

    I know Green Coffe Bean has chlorogenic acid, and I assume regular coffee has it as well. Now then, regular coffee is my one remaining vice (don't drink, smoke, no drugs, etc.). so I may have to just live with some downside - I guess I have to pick my poison.

    Coffee is actually fantastic for health. The elevation in homocysteine may not actually be causative of pathology.

    As with everything in life...anything in excess tends to bring a downside. Like Coop stated, coffee has many positive health benefits.
