Betaine

Betaine

Betaine anhydrous (Natural Sugar Beet Extract) is a naturally occurring amino acid derivative found in most plants and animals; it is an osmolyte that protects against dehydration and stress associated with cell water loss. Betaine anhydrous is also a methyl donor, which means it is involved in the methionine pathway and supports lower blood homocysteine levels. Our Betaine anhydrous is derived from Non-GMO sugar beets, Beta vulgaris, using a water extraction method.
