TMG (Betaine Anhydrous Trimethylglycine) is a food that can be found naturally in the body and also in foods such as spinach, seafood, wine, beets etc. TMG supplements are commonly used for reducing blood homocysteine levels and to improve athletic performance.
Another important function of TMG is it’s ability to help the body with methylation, which involves the transfer of a methyl group (1 carbon and 3 hydrogens) from one molecule to another in our bodies, a core component of human biochemistry. In addition methylation also enables the body to remove toxic substances in the liver and tissue. Metabolising NAD+ causes a depletion of methyl groups and taking NMN or any NAD+ enhancing supplement will potentially cause a reduction in methlylation. For this reason we recommend taking a supplement to support methylation.
Studies have shown that nicotinamide derivative supplementation can lead to an increase of metabolites in urine and blood, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but supporting the body’s ability to remove these substances from the body is important.
Our TMG supplement contains three methyl groups that are donated to the body’s natural methylation processes.
Max Lifespan recommend TMG be used alongside NMN to ensure that any nicotinamide that is not converted to NAD+ get’s methylated out of the body. An alternative is to use Methyl B12 & Methyl Folate supplementation.
