DMB HELP

Hi guys!

Has anyone had any success with either drinking red wine or eating spoonfuls of certain oils as a source of DMB in an attempt to prevent the production of smelly TMA?

Also, does anyone know if DMB occurs in grape seed extract oil? I take some of that already and feel like it's doing me some good.

Finally been given a referral date to find out whether TMAU is my problem or not, not till august but glad to have one in the diary!

Hope you're all well x

Hey Sophie,

Yes, after 5 wks on a very strict diet of chicken, rice and peppers, no odour.
I took 2x probiotics first thing,
2x crumpets for breakfast,
GrapeSeed oil poured over said rice etc, for dinner, followed by 2x Grape a Seed Extract capsules, and 1x Zinc tablet.
Good luck with your referral. x

1 expert suggested you would need about 10-20g DMB a day (in divided doses) to block TMA formation in the gut.
IMHO the foods/liquids that contain DMB also have many other volatiles that I suspect make me smell.
So personally I am just waiting until the 'pure DMB' pills hit the market (could be anything from 6 months to 5 years I guess)
