Betaine anhydrous, also called trimethylglycine (TMG), helps the body clear unwanted homocysteine.* Betaine increases muscle power, endurance, workout capacity, and muscle mass. And it also increases leanness, improves overall body composition, and helps liver function and cell reproduction.*
- Boosts muscular power output*
- Increases muscle development*
- Decreases body fat*
- Promotes healthy liver function and cellular reproduction*
- Supports cardiovascular health*
Betaine Anhydrous Makes Work "Easier"
Betaine anhydrous is well-known for making work "easier." Research finds that supplementing with betaine anhydrous increases endurance, work capacity, and muscle mass and improves body composition.
One study, cited by 70 other clinical research papers, shows that the cross-sectional area of the arms, bench-press volume, and lean-body mass drastically increased when users supplemented with betaine anhydrous.
