Ancient Purity proudly presents Behaviour Balance –DMG by FoodScience. N,N-Dimethylglycine or DMG is a natural amino acid that plays a critical role in supporting health, vitality and wellness in the body. Our bodies produce this vital nutrient naturally, but in a world of high stress and heavy demand we don't produce adequate amounts of DMG. DMG is what's known as a flagship product. It was one of Food Science Corporation's first. 40 years on, it remains a source of pride and comprehensive health support for Food Science’s employees. So after decades of scientific research it turned out that DMG proved incredibly valuable to energy, athletic performance, healthy neurological function, liver health, and more.
Dimethylglycine is an amino acid derivative and a methyl donor that supports the body's metabolic processes. As an immune system modulator, DMG supports circulation, oxygen utilisation, brain health, cardiovascular wellness, joint comfort and hydration and much more. Behaviour Balance DMG supports neurological health, socialisation skills, stress coping mechanisms and immune health. It is a versatile nutrient that supports overall wellness and everyday health in people of all ages, genders and activity levels.

Methyl Deficiency - Get Methylated with DMG
One of the principle pathways by which DMG, or Dimethylglycine, produces a beneficial effect on the body is to supply methyl groups for cellular reactions. Methylation is essential for good health, vitality and wellness. Every cell in the body needs an adequate source of methyl groups to function correctly and efficiently. DMG becomes effective due to it falling apart and producing building blocks for numerous of the body’s fundamental biological molecules. In a broader sense, DMG is a powerful metabolic improver that enhances a range of vital bodily functions.
A methyl group is simply a carbon atom with three hydrogen atoms attached (- C H3) and DMG has two methyl groups which it can give up to other molecules to use to complete their synthesis in the cell. Methylation is involved in hundreds of reactions in the body which involve transferring a methyl group from one molecule to another. DMG can supply methyl groups for the production of vitamins, enzymes, neurotransmitters , amino acids, hormones, antibodies and even DNA. If there is a deficiency of available methyl groups in the body then these molecules don't get made with potentially dire consequences.
Supporting people of all ages
Methylation contributes to many bodily functions
Besides being involved in the synthesis of bioactive molecules, methylation contributes to a wide range of bodily functions including: Energy production, Immune function, Detoxification, Repairing and building of DNA, Brain activity and mood balancing, Inflammatory response, Neurological function as well as the production of key hormones and neurotransmitters.
A deficiency of methyl groups can lead to the development of health problems in the body. Methylation is one way that the body protects itself from toxic substances, especially in the liver. Methyl groups cover DNA to protect it from free radical damage and aging. DNA methylation influences the expression of genes which controls which pathways are activated or shut down. The immune system depends on methylation to help protect the body from infections and acute inflammation. The cardiovascular system depends on methylation to reduce the risks of heart disease. The principle methylating agent in the body is SAMe (S-Adenosyl methionine) which can acquire its methyl groups from a number of sources including DMG. SAMe is involved in over 200 methylation reactions. The body requires a large supply of methyl groups to function at maximum efficiency. Supplementing with DMG can help prevent a person from having a shortage of methyl groups.
The Peace of DMG (Dimethylglycine)
DMG Case Studies
There are many real-world examples that demonstrate DMG’s effectiveness. When given as a supplement, DMG gave rise to numerous health benefits for the following individuals. The three cases below demonstrate the dramatic effect DMG can have on cognitive and brain function in individuals whose neurological pathways were lacking the important metabolic contribution that DMG can provide. In these individuals, DMG was an essential part of their daily nutritional intake and helped them to function at a much higher level.
One case involved a 6-year-old child who had only spoken a few words in her life. Her mother decided to give her a 125 mg DMG tablet based on a friend’s recommendation. The next morning, the child totally surprised her mother by going to her bedside early in the morning and saying “Wake up mommy! It’s time to get up.” The child began to communicate in other ways that not only surprised her mother but her teacher who reported greater awareness, eye contact, and language. It appeared that DMG was a missing piece in her ability for her brain to organise and express words. DMG also improved the child interactive social contact with others much to the delight of her mother. (Source: Autism Research Institute Newsletter- vol 6, 1992)
“I think that it is not only autistic people who need to learn. The people who don’t have autism must learn to understand us and be tolerant” – Paul Morris, New York Medical College of Human Resources
Another next case involved a 22-year old man who experienced a dramatic reduction in his seizure frequency after using DMG as a nutritional supplement. For six months prior to using the DMG, he was experiencing from 16 to 18 generalised seizures a week while making no changes in his medication. After he started taking 90 mgs of DMG twice per day, the number of seizures dropped to three per week, an 83 % reduction in frequency. Twice over a period of time, he stopped taking the DMG and the result was that he had a dramatic increase in his seizure activity. His doctor was so impressed by DMG’s action in reducing his seizures that he published this case study in the medical literature. (Source: New England J. of Med. Vol 307, p1081 (1982)
Finally, this last case centred on a 4-year-old boy, Andrew, who had huge behavioural issues with anger and frustration. He’d throw a tantrum after being corrected or given instructions from his parents or teachers. In school, he’d head-butt other students and cause major disruptions in class. At home, he would have to be physically restrained in order for his mother to brush his teeth. It was at this time they began to use DMG. His grandmother noted an incredible change in attitude after giving him a DMG supplement. He became very cooperative and would allow himself to be brushed with no fuss. This was repeated over several nights where he would protest strongly having his teeth brushed until he was given the DMG which seemed to act within minutes to change his negative attitude and behaviour. The problems at school essentially disappeared and he began to act like a typical 4-year-old and responded to correction appropriately. At home, he could now be reasoned with and also reacted properly to instructions or guidance. It appears that DMG was acting like a missing piece of the puzzle in Andrew’s metabolic pathways which allowed him to have more self- control over his outbursts of anger and frustration. DMG’s effect was fast acting and could bring about a rapid change in attitude.
''I might hit developmental and societal milestones in a different order than my peers, but I am able to accomplish these small victories on my own time.'' – Haley Moss, Autism Patient
Behaviour Balance helping Ease the Mind
Neurological Functions... DMG provides important building blocks for the synthesis of neurotransmitters and hormones. It supports energy production for the brain and may be beneficial for those affected by seizures. DMG also supports the brain’s production of Phosphocreatine, a high energy source for neurochemical processes.
Anti-Stress... DMG helps the body cope with physical, emotional and metabolic stress by improving oxygen utilization and supporting the immune system when being challenged.
Athletic Performance... DMG supports oxygen utilisation, decreases lactic acid build-up, encourage greater endurance, stamina as well as better muscle recovery after strenuous exercise. Not solely is this pivotal for endurance athletes, but also for any sportsmen and women who could benefit from less tiredness and improved endurance. Truck drivers, shift workers, students and those working long hours often need to retain higher levels of mental and physical alertness. One research indicated that DMG taken at higher levels might decrease what marathon runners call the “18-mile hitting-the-wall factor,” promoting runners in both their recovery and time. Many athletes also use DMG for general immunity support, as heavy exercise leaves their bodies’ immune systems depleted.
Cardiovascular Health... DMG supports normal cholesterol and triglyceride levels, improves circulation, supports healthy blood pressure and homocysteine levels and helps combat hypoxia (low oxygen levels). Homocysteine needs a methyl group to transform it to methionine and DMG creates methyl groups for the methylation and transmethylation processes. Its methylation properties make DMG great for promoting improved cardiovascular function. Some health practitioners report promising results using a combination of DMG, CoQ10, and Omega 3 fatty acids for enhanced heart health and function.
Immune System Support... DMG supports the immune system by promoting B-cell, T-cell and macrophage activity. It can help support the body's resistance to infections. Many persons who adopt a DMG-rich program including supplementation find that they experience better overall immunity. One research investigating DMG’s immune-enhancing properties discovered that a group of participants that were given DMG experienced a 400% increase in antibody production!
Liver Function... DMG acts as a methyl donor, detoxifier, and supports Glutathione and SAMe production. It helps defending the liver and the rest of the body from toxins. There’s a range of pathways in which our bodies can get rid of toxic substances. DMG is outstanding for detoxifying and helping our livers of cleaning out these harmful substances, and research has revealed that the methylation pathway is critical in eliminating toxins.
Cognitive Function…Most-likely DMG’s most exciting and promising uses are linked to cognition. Along with enhancing circulation and oxygen utilisation, it has been found that DMG enhances the production of the brain’s neurotransmitters and the production of a crucial energy molecule known as phosphocreatine. This energy molecule is a precursor which aids boost the production of ATP, and DMG produces both the methyl groups and glycine essential to produce the creatine (A substance that is found naturally in muscle cells. It helps your muscles produce energy during heavy lifting or high-intensity) that goes into phosphocreatine. This combination might drastically enhance cognitive function.

DMG is an Adaptogen
We all have to deal with stress and its negative effects on the body. Fortunately, Dimethylglycine (DMG) has many anti-stress properties when it comes to restoring health, building wellness, and supporting physical and mental performance. DMG is considered to be an adaptogen based on its ability to help the body adapt to physical, mental, biochemical and environmental stressors which can cause the body’s operating systems to become out of balanced. In other words, numerous benefits of DMG are connected to the fact that it is an adaptogen that aids fight the effects of mental and physical stress on the body. This includes enhancing the immune system, cardiovascular system, and more in times of increased stress. A number of the benefits and uses that we’ve discussed above result from DMG functioning as an adaptogen, as it aids our bodies adapt to mentally and physically stressful situations.
Adaptogens can be defined as natural, safe substances that help your body adapt to the many types of stress by restoring physiological balance or homeostasis. In other words, adaptogens help the body overcome stress by exerting a normalising effect on bodily processes. Adaptogens help mitigate the stress response (think “fight or flight”) caused by the release of the stress hormones from the adrenal gland. When these stress hormones remain high in the blood stream, it causes many physiological processes in the body to become unbalanced. This loss of biochemical homeostasis (balance) causes the cells of the body to function at less than peak efficiency. Over time, this can lead to a breakdown of important functions in the body. An example of this is where extreme stress can weaken the body’s immune system, induce fatigue or cause digestive disorders.

DMG Behaviour Balance… Closing Thoughts
As a compound found naturally in animal and plant cells, DMG is a derivative of glycine which is an amino acid. Our bodies use it to produce vital proteins, and it can mimic antioxidants’ health impact. Considered a dietary health food supplement, DMG might offer its users with benefits such as aiding kids with behavioural challenges. There are numerous parents having reported that by taking DMG as a supplement, their kids have experienced more focused attention spans. Dr Bernard Rimland has also associated DMG with improved communication skills as well as enhanced social skills. Professional athletes and recreational sports enthusiasts have also been supplementing with DMG for years to optimise physical performance.
Dom Orlandi, the founder of FoodScience Corporation, discovered in 1968 that DMG could enhance physical endurance. Orlandi and his team of scientific researchers fed DMG to a number of horses that typically got exhausted heading down the home stretch of races. Orlandi discovered that DMG gave his horse that extra boost the animal required to finish the stretch of races. A later research, performed by Dr Stephen Levine showed that DMG could reduce lactic acid build-up in equine. Today, DMG is used helping to improve various mental and physical health issues such attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), allergies, epilepsy, respiratory disorders, inflammation, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), alcoholism, and drug addiction. DMG is also used to enhance speech and behaviour in autism, liver function, nervous system function, the human bodies’ use of oxygen, and athletic endurance. Some persons use it to decrease stress and the effects of the ageing process, as well as boosting the immune system. In addition, Dimethylglycine is used to lower high blood cholesterol levels and triglycerides, and to aid bring blood glucose and blood pressure into normal range.
