Betaine Powers Your Performance

Betaine Powers Your Performance Betaine, also known as trimethylglycine or TMG, is found in beets, spinach and whole grains. University of Connecticut researchers wanted to test its effect on resistance trained men, so they recruited a dozen volunteers age 18 to 24 and had them take betaine in supplemental form twice a day for 2 weeks.

These subjects had taken a high-intensity strength and power challenge before the supplementation period began. When tested after supplementing with betaine, vertical jump power and isometric squat force increased. Bench press force also increased even though they weren't able to perform any more reps than before.

True Strength Moment: This study, which was published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, suggests that daily betaine supplementation can help increase your performance in terms of both power and force. If you want to give it a try, ON's new all-in-one muscle constructor, Platinum Hydrobuilder, provides 2.5 grams of BetaPower Natural Betaine per serving.
