Dimethylglycine is found in the body in very small amounts and for only seconds at a time. People use dimethylglycine to make medicine.
Dimethylglycine is used for attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), epilepsy, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), allergies, respiratory disorders, pain and swelling (inflammation), cancer, alcoholism, and drug addiction. It is also used to improve speech and behavior in autism, nervous system function, liver function, the body’s use of oxygen, and athletic performance.
Some people use it to reduce stress and the effects of aging, as well as boost the immune system’s defenses against infection. Dimethylglycine is also used to lower blood-cholesterol and triglycerides, and to help bring blood pressure and blood sugar into a normal range.
