DMG plays a crucial role in the respiratory cycle of the cells.
Research Uncovers Role Of DMG DMG is the popular abbreviation for the nutrient N,N-Dimethylglycine, which is found in low levels in many foods. DMG is also produced within the cells of the body from choline and betaine, and so is classified as an "intermediary metabolite." DMG plays a crucial role in the respiratory cycle of the cells, transporting oxygen and serving as a potent methyl donor. A larger nutrient complex containing DMG was the subject of numerous studies in the Soviet Union during the 1960s. This work led to its adoption as part of the dietary regimen for Soviet athletes. In the mid-1970s, the American biochemist Dr. Roger Kendall identified DMG as the key ingredient of the Soviet formula. Since then, research at several American universities has demonstrated DMG's usefulness in a variety of species, including the horse.
What are the advantages?
1. Lower product cost: Concentration reduces or eliminates the use of blending (filler) ingredients, which means lower manufacturing costs for us, and lower prices for you.
2. Lower packaging costs: Concentrated products deliver the same nutritional value in much smaller containers, which cost less than those big bulky tubs. So you save money - and storage space.
3. Lower shipping costs: Freight is a hidden and often significant cost in bulky feed supplements. Concentration trims weight dramatically, which lowers the cost of shipping the products to your local dealer. And that stretches your horse care dollar even further.
4. Easier to feed: Ever feel like you're feeding your horses more supplement than grain? With concentrated formulas, you can often top dress less than an ounce of supplement per feeding. Most are easier to blend into the feed, and they make for a much more pleasant dining experience for your horses!
DMG Inside The Cell All of the energy available to the horse's body for work comes from a complex chemical reaction called the ATP cycle. This cycle occurs within the mitochondria, small bodies inside the cells often called the "powerhouse of the body". DMG is used to help transport the oxygen that breaks down glycogen ("blood sugar") to fuel the ATP cycle. This function of DMG has led researchers to study its impact on lactic acid production in horses.
Why Feed DMG? DMG is primarily found in the body as a product of cellular action. Supplementation makes additional DMG available to cells throughout the body. DMG is a water soluble nutrient and is very readily absorbed. DMG is constantly broken down as it is used in the mitochondria. Since this metabolism occurs quickly, it is recommended that DMG be fed twice daily.
3,000 mg Per Ounce DMG 3000 is a good example of our feed less, get more philosophy. Its extra-concentrated to deliver our premium quality DMG in a smaller, easy-to-feed ¼ ounce scoop. DMG 3000s more efficient formula also makes it more economical.
