Betafin natural Betaine – Aqua

Betafin natural Betaine – Aqua

  • Betafin natural betaine is a byproduct of sugar beet manufacture. It accumulates at high levels in sugar beet to help maintain osmolarity and cell function.
  • Betaine is an excellent osmoregulator as it has both a positive and a negative charge (zwitterion) - attracts water.
  • Osmoregulation is the ability of a cell to maintain its structure and function by regulating movement of water in and out of the cell.
  • From simple single cell bacteria, plants, marine organisms, animals and humans, betaine has evolved to be the preferred osmolyte to maintain cell structure and function.
