What some are claiming could be called a super nutrient, or panacea, for many ailments is known as trimethylglycine (TMG) or glycine betaine. TMG was discovered to be beneficial for heart health back in the 1950s because of its ability to reduce high levels of homocysteine, which creates a higher risk for heart disease, heart attacks, and strokes. TMG also contributes to promoting CoQ-10, a heart health coenzyme that hadn’t been discovered until well after the 1950s. But this ability to lower that valid high risk marker for heart disease and promote a heart strengthening co-enzyme are not the only benefits from using TMG. TMG has recently been used for improving conditions like ulcers, arthritis, leaky gut syndrome, diabetes, kidney and heart failure, neurobehavioral disorders, chronic fatigue, sleep disorders, and even certain cancers. It is useful for slowing the aging process, inducing better sleep, calming nerves, and improving digestion and immunity.
