    • Trimethylglycin (Betain)

      Hier geht es um Betain als Trimethylglycin, nicht Betain-HCL
      Wer hat Erfahrungen damit?

      Scheint ganz interessant zu sein

      TMG may be one of the most important nutrients to prevent heart disease, stroke, liver disease, slow aging and treat depression. TMG is also called glycine betaine, but the name "trimethylglycine" signifies that it has three methyl groups attached to each molecule of glycine. In the body, TMG donates one of its methyl groups to cellular DNA, which may help protect DNA against damage and its consequences, cancer and premature aging. When a TMG methyl group is donated to a molecule of homocysteine, it is converted first to methionine then to s-adenosyl-methionine (SAM). No "safe" level of homocysteine has been established, suggesting that taking nutrients like TMG could lower everyone's risk of heart attack and stroke, in addition to protecting DNA. Dosage and use: 1000 - 2500 mg daily are suggested for healthy people. Three to six grams daily may be taken under the care of a physician to treat liver failure or depression. This product is most effectively utilized when taken with meals. TMG should be taken with co-factors vitamins B6 and B12, and folic acid, which enhance a second and independent conversion pathway.

      Double Your IGF-1 & Reduce Your Body Fat By 19% W/ Betaine!? I have to admit, the evidence I have to support this hilarious claim is not conclusive, but it's interesting. That's for sure.

      IMPORTANT REMINDER - This is "betaine" as in trimethylglycine aka TMG, not "betaine" as in betaine HCL, which may help you if you have serious problems with your digestive system, but is otherwise (i.e. for 99% of the healthy population) a complete waste of money and will have NO effect whatsoever on your IGF-1 and body fat levels.

      The data was published in a not exactly totally recent paper from the Department of Veterinary Medicine at the Faculty of Veterinary Science of the Chulalongkorn University in Thailand. The subjects were pigs and the objective of the present study was, therefore, to evaluate the effect of betaine supplementation (at 0.125% of the total diet) on carcass quality, growth performance and changes in serum IGF-1 and TG concentrations of finishing pigs.

      Figure 1: Relative IGF-1 & triglyceride levels, as well as thickness of back fat (Lothong. 2013)

      Aside from the previously mentioned improvements in body fat and IGF-1, the pigs on the "high" betaine diet (my calculation would suggest that we are talking about a human equivalent of only 2-3g per day) did also lead to significant reductions in serum triglyceride and could thus also help people with high blood lipids.
