Tri-Methyl Glycine (TMG) is also known as Betaine. It plays a role in methylation processes in the body, helping to maintain a healthy heart and vascular system. Healthy methylation is also important in keeping DNA healthy in every cell of the body.
Have you ever wondered how the body turns food nutrients into all sorts of vital chemicals like hormones and neurotransmitters? The answer is a chemical reaction called `methylation`. TMG supports healthy methylation to help support the body and brain. Methylation also helps the body convert homocysteine into SAMe, which helps maintain good mood and flexible joints.
TMG - helping to support and maintain healthy homocysteine levels
In a healthy body, ‘methylation’ happens over a billion times a second. This is important for converting potentially dangerous homocysteine into one of the body’s most important antioxidants, glutathione. Keeping homocysteine at a healthy low level is also important for maintaining a healthy heart, brain and circulatory system and for maintaining clarity of thought and mind as we grow older.
