TMG Crystals provides trimethylglycine, an important methyl donor (a.k.a., anhydrous betaine). Methyl donors, such as TMG and folic acid, are required for converting homocysteine (a toxic amino acid and a serious health risk) back into methionine and for the accurate synthesis of DNA and RNA, which is essential for the production of normal cells.

I'm happy with my TMG. I'm using it for depression and it has definitely improved my mood and mental clarity--the effects for me were immediate. It makes sleeping more difficult--so I take literally the smallest amount you can imagine--just a pinch. I tried SAM-e in the past and didn't like the enteric coating--seems like this has the same effect and I like it much better because it's about a tenth of the price, there's no enteric coating, and I can tailor my dose to my needs.
Instant side effects with only 1/3 scoop!
Instant side effects with only 1/3 scoop!
This gave me a pressure headache within minutes of ingestion. I show symptoms of homocystinuria which might simply be mimicked by candida's malabsorption syndrome, the resutls are the same since I can't digest/metabolize B vitamins! Anyway, extensive research on homocystinuria led me to purchasing this item. I woke up just past 5am, a bit later than I wanted and right after breakfast started experiencing CFIDS/herxheimer symptoms. Thinking this would alleviate the fatigue, I put 1/3rd of a scoop in an empty capsule. Bad idea! I became instantly confused, with an incipient headache and just this feeling of overall malaise. Thankfully I keep charcoal caps at hand: they mop up toxins, medicines and supplements OD alike. I took 2 and within minutes experienced relief from the TMG side effects in the sense of head pressure gone, brain fog and fatigue lifted. I did a quick google on the side effects: many people at forums report the exact same thing. What a bummer! I thought this was the missing link, I guess not! Also please note: 1) There is no info provided as to whether this is the toxic synthetic TMG (now I do wonder!) or whether it's derived from natural sources. 2) Whereas shampoo bottles give detailed step by step instructions on where to apply the shampoo and what to do with it once you have hand to head, this bottle leaves us absolutely in the dark! It doesn't say whether to take on empty stomach or after a meal; it doesn't even tell us whether to drop the powder in food, tongue or how. I have empty capsules, if you do not, I don't know how palatable this is, might be bitter or sweet, don't know! On the plus side, there is a really cute tiny scoop inside this bottle. I guess 1 star for cute mini scoop! :-|
Powder is always purer than capsules or tablets.

Best TMG on iherb because it is in powder form and therefore do not contain any other unwanted excipients like magnesium stearate or stearic acid that most low quality capsules and tablets contains. These days everyone who takes supplements should have an electronic weight scale that weights in the milligrams (mg) for powders because these scales are so cheap and reliable coming from China. No excuses for not owning one! Iherb should make more powder forms of all other nutrients available for purchase whenever possible.

This is a good product that detoxifies with an alternative pathway to b12. If you have trouble with your b12 pathway blocked, this will help you along until you are able to increase methyl b12 to noticeable levels. No flavor, we add it to water bottle first thing in the morning.
