The formulation also includes Trimethylglycine (TMG) and L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine is well proven as a naturally occurring amino acid which plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat. Carnitine boosts energy by stimulating the body’s burning of triglycerides as fuel, and sparing the supply of glycogen stored in the liver for heavier exertion. During exercise, the body will burn fat at a rate of 75-80 % of maximum exertion. TMG detoxifies the powerful pro-oxidant and free-radical generator homocysteine, which is now known to be a leading cause of heart and artery disease. It is a natural amino acid and is produced in the body during the metabolism of choline. By providing supplemental TMG we can spare much of the body’s choline reserves for conversion to acetylcholine which is the chemical released by the nervous system to activate muscles.
