What do these two pages include?

4 logo_1685361_webThese pages are comprised of links to information concerning the treatments and causes of types of odor which form on various parts of the body: underarm, breath, hair/scalp, groin, and feet. Scroll down on this page for that information. There are images of products on both pages that you can click on to order from Amazon.com. Among other info on page 2 are also links to over-the-counter anti-depressant medication and links to how to manage stress and social anxiety. Click here if you wish to view page 2 now.    


What’s it all about?


Trimethylaminuria (TMAU) is a metabolic disorder which causes a pungent odor. When bacteria in the large intestines metabolize (or break down) choline (a nutrient found in nearly all foods), trimethylamine is created. For many people, the liver is unable to convert trimethylamine (the compound that causes a fishy odor) into the odorless compound trimethylamine N-oxide. The result is a fishy body odor though some body odor types (i.e. fecal) vary in persons with TMAU.


There are two types of TMAU: Type 1 is when you’re genetically born with it; type 2 is when you acquire the disorder in a number of ways.

In a normal liver, the enzyme Flavin-Containing Monooxygenase 3 (FMO3) neutralizes the fishy smell of trimethylamine, converting it into the odorless compound trimethylamine N-oxide, which is then released into the urine. But for many people worldwide, this FMO3 enzyme is severely deficient. The result is that the unneutralized (or under-neutralized) odor of trimethylamine is released throughout the body in the sweat, urine, breath, and reproductive fluids.

Choline is an important nutrient for, among other functions, maintaining a healthy brain. But for people with TMAU, the consumption of foods rich in choline increases their body odor. Why? First, a clarification: The metabolism of food is the chemical process by which the components of the food are broken down (or processed) and turned into energy and other requirements for the body. It is during this process that choline creates trimethylamine. So the more choline, the more odor-causing trimethylamine there is for the defective FMO3 enzyme in the liver to struggle to neutralize.

Because choline is considered to be related (though not officially) to the vitamin B complex, it might be a good idea for people on a low-choline diet to take vitamin B supplements. But if you’re on medication or have a separate medical condition it is also a good idea to consult with your doctor before starting on supplements of any type.

Reason to be hopeful

Trimethylaminuria has existed for many centuries. There is no known cure. However, the existence of this little-known malady is gaining traction in the medical field. That is good reason to believe that better treatment is on the horizon and even a cure.
