Some individuals can not swallow tablets or capsules. Kirkman has therefore formulated a liquid DMG product. Kirkman's DMG liquid has a pleasant raspberry flavor and is especially easy to use with small children. As with all Kirkman products, the DMG liquid is casein and gluten free.
Dimethylglycine (DMG) is a non-protein amino acid present in plant and animal cells. The chemical structure of DMG is actually a glycine molecule holding onto two methyl groups, so DMG is considered a "methyl donor". In the body, with the help of a coenzyme of riboflavin, DMG supplies methyl groups which attach to folic acid to form methylene tetrahydrofolate, an important component of many biochemical processes in the body including cellular perception and response. It is also involved in maintaining healthy homocysteine levels.
