What are the uses?
Betaine Anhydrous is a versatile vitamin that is used by the body for a wide variety of physiological purposes.
Betaine's chief purpose in the body is the lowering of homocysteine levels. In humans, Betaine is essential to the maintenance of intestinal function and cell production, it can protect the kidneys from damage, and it serves to protect DNA and DNA formation. Betaine has also been shown to increase low plasma methionine and S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) levels under certain conditions.
As a nutritional aide, Betaine anhydrous has been shown to be lipotropic - i.e. fat loss causing - by promoting the oxidization of lipids. It has also been noted to increase appetite, improve digestive efficiency, and in animals, it has been shown to promote lean mass and reproductive abilities.
The action of Betaine is potentiated in the presence of choline (its precursor), folic acid, and vitamins B6 and B12. In some circumstances, Betaine anhydrous can be used as a substitute for methionine and choline chloride.
Dosage guidelines vary by age and medical fitness. As a general dose, children and adults can supplement with up to 6 grams per day.
