TMAU is a rare metabolic disorder that affects men, women
and children, from newborns to seniors, all races and ethnicities,
in most countries around the world. The presence of volatile trimethyl-amine
(TMA) in sweat is the critical determinant, because it creates a pungent
odor that emanates from the skin and surrounds the patient in an unpleasant
Hygiene is Not the Problem
Although TMAU sufferers show no apparent lack of hygiene or obvious
medical symptoms, most people with the disorder report having foul
body odors, bad breath, or a bad taste in their mouths. Studies in
the last few years have shown that trimethylaminuria results from
defects in an enzyme that breaks down trimethylamine, a byproduct
of protein digestion released by bacteria living in the gut. This
small molecule—the compound that gives fish their fishy odor—smells
foul or like waste/refuse at low concentrations and fishy and even
ammonia-like in larger amounts.
Most of us avoid having a socially unacceptable body odor by taking
showers regularly and using deodorants, perfumes, or colognes. However,
for people with TMAU or fish odor syndrome, none of these is enough.
People with the disorder can release trimethylamine through breath,
sweat, and urine. Some have a strong body odor all the time. Others
experience a less severe smell that fluctuates over time.
PureAyre is Part of TMAU Maintenance Program

program to help manage TMAU. Diet, supplements, hygiene and hormonal
control can all be part of the maintenance system. Now, with PureAyre®
Odor Eliminator as part of a maintenance regimen, TMAU sufferers need
not rely on unsafe air and fabric fresheners and cleaners or overuse
of perfumes. PureAyre eliminates TMAU odors without adding smells.
