Research and Clinical Studies on BetaPower®: Functions

BetaPower® Natural Betaine contributes to several important metabolic functions

As a Methyl Donor

BetaPower® Natural Betaine donates methyl groups (CH3), which are required for over 100 different reactions essential for normal cell function in the human body. These functions include the synthesis of creatine, carnitine, and epinephrine—all of which are known to play a role in enhanced physical performance.

As a Natural Osmolyte

BetaPower® Natural Betaine accumulates in cells to protect against stress, by forming a monolayer of water around essential cell components like enzymes. Betaine helps to maintain cell volume and function during dehydration, heat, or metabolite accumulation. As an osmolyte, betaine works in synergy with electrolytes for optimal cellular water balance and function—protecting the enzymes and other proteins against inactivation and degradation.
