Supports the methylation pathway and serotonin levels. TMG has also been said to enhance heart health, boost athletic performance, promote healthy insulin levels, and protect against depression. Hypoallergenic. Capsules are plant-based. Gluten and casein free. Ultra Tested®.
TMG is a more active "methyl donor" than DMG with an additional methyl group in its chemical structure. It is used to convert homocysteine to methionine, thus supporting cardiovascular and liver health.
TMG is found in a variety of plant and animal sources. Kirkman's TMG derives from beets.
Methyl donors can help in the production of several brain chemicals. Some of the methionine from TMG is converted into SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine), which can help maintain healthy serotonin levels in the body that may support mood, energy, concentration and a feeling of well-being.
Folic acid intake and levels in the body must be adequate for TMG to work biochemically. In some individuals, the use of natural folinic acid may be more beneficial than folic acid, because folinic acid already has attached four hydrogen atoms and one methyl group, thereby shortcutting the complicated biochemical processes that assist purine and nucleotide synthesis. These processes are very important in cell perception and response.
