I got tmg supplements about a month ago. I started taking 500mg once in the morning. Sadly, after 3 days I developed a chronic headache.
I decided not to take anymore and left it for a few days.
Then after a few days I decided (as I was just about to throw the supplement in the bin) that I would try them one more time.
Well, I’m glad I did. I took another 500mg and waited to see if I got a headache. Sadly, I did get another headache, but this time it wasn’t so intense. So I thought I’d stick with for a few more days to see if the headache subsided even more…and it did, the headache was much less intense.
So I carried on taking the supplement for more days, and to my surprise, the headache was not there. I wondered why this happened.
So I researched betaine and found out it detoxes your liver and body. Maybe that’s why I got these horrendous headaches?
I also found out beetroot’s detoxify your liver and body. To my surprise, beetroots contain the highest amount of betaine/tmg. I honestly wasn’t even searching about betaine in beetroot, it was just coincidence.
So I bought beetroot from my grocery and now add them to smoothies and salad sandwiches and burgers. I also take the betaine supplement as well.
I don’t over do it though.
I like it a lot.
When I first took it I feel I was hyper focused to the point of migraine headaches. Now I’m focused more, but without the headache.
It’s been nearly a month I think. I’m gonna see how I feel later in the year.
But I haven’t taken beetroot in days and still no headache from the betaine.
I’m trying to figure out if betaine competes with other amino acids. I don’t want to deplete any amino acids , so I take it in the morning with food, and then the rest of the day I get the rest of amino acids from food.
