Helps With Liver Function and Detoxification
Betaine benefits liver health by assisting in detoxification and the process of the liver
digesting fats (lipids). Fat can accumulate to dangerous levels in the liver from
conditions — such as alcohol abuse, obesity, diabetes and other causes — but
betaine is able to assist in liver detox functions of breaking down and removing fats.
Betaine also helps the liver to dispose of toxins and chemicals, preventing against
damage to the digestive tract and other bodily damage that can result from toxin
Supports Heart Health
Betaine is best known for helping to reduce homocysteine levels in the blood, which
is directly related to lowering risk for heart disease. A high homocysteine concentration
is a potential risk factor for cardiovascular disease, but studies show that this condition
can be reduced through regular betaine supplementation.
By helping to fight hardening and blocking of arteries due to elevated homocysteine,
betaine is beneficial in reducing the risk for heart attacks, stroke, and other forms of
cardiac arrest and heart disease.
May Help Improve Muscle Mass
Though research is mixed and somewhat limited in humans, ongoing betaine
supplementation has been shown to reduce fat (adipose) mass and to increase muscle
in human studies. To date, several studies have been done to research whether betaine
benefits exist for building strength and muscle mass. Different studies have showed
May Help with Fat Loss
According to certain studies, data suggests that betaine supplementation may be
beneficial in altering how the body processes and partitions nutrients, resulting in
quicker fat burning abilities and fat loss without breaking down muscle tissue or
Can Aid in Digestion
Betaine is sometimes used to create Betaine Hydrochloride supplements (also called
betaine HCl). Betaine HCI is thought to increase the concentration of hydrochloric
acid in the stomach, which is the acid that must be present in order to break down
foods and to use nutrients. In certain groups of people who have low stomach acid,
they can experience a range of digestive problems that betaine is able to help relieve.
Helps Relieve Aches and Pains
Studies have shown that betaine may positively benefit those with muscle aches and
pains. In one study conducted on horses, levels of lactate acid (associated with muscular
fatigue) were lower after exercise when horses received betaine supplementation.
Repair Bodily Damage from Alcoholism
Betaine is used to treat alcoholic liver damage that results in the accumulation of fat in
the liver. Betaine has lipotropic (fat-reducing) effects, so it has been shown to produce
significant improvements in healing fatty liver disease by helping the liver to process and
