A natural nutrient that promotes hydration and performance – especially strength,
power and muscle endurance.
BetaPower® Natural Betaine helps your fitness-oriented consumers get a natural boost in their performance while aiding several important metabolic functions.
A purified form of anhydrous betaine, BetaPower® Natural Betaine is 99% pure and derived from sugar beets. Also known as trimethylglycine (TMG), betaine is found in many healthy foods, such as whole grains, spinach and beets. When consumed as part of a daily diet, betaine helps maintain cellular hydration and contributes to a healthy metabolism.
A number of recent studies show that betaine provides a number of health and sports performance benefits. Clinical trials demonstrate a significant improvement in physical performance, especially in strength, power and muscle endurance.
It’s important to note that a number of published athletic performance and safety studies have included BetaPower® Natural Betaine. There are other synthetic and natural betaine products on the market, which may not have been subjected to these stringent tests—and this may not always be clear from the product labelling. IFF has also developed IP on the use of betaine for physical performance and in various foods.
We’re the world’s largest supplier of natural betaine used for food and a wide variety of other applications. And all of our betaine ingredients are derived from sugar beet. Our betaine is manufactured in Finland and is approved as a safe ingredient in a growing list of countries.
Incorporating BetaPower® Natural Betaine in your sports nutrition and dietary supplement nutraceutical products gives your consumers a convenient way to achieve a daily dose of this versatile ingredient.
Research shows that BetaPower® Natural Betaine can significantly improve strength,
endurance, and power in humans.
A study conducted by the University of Connecticut measured the increase in the
performance levels of athletes who had consumed just 2.5 grams of betaine per day
over a two-week period1.
The results showed increased performance as measured by muscular strength and
power, in all the athletes tested. Betaine was the only performance ingredient that
showed increased results across 100% of subjects.
A study by Hoffman et al.2 at the College of New Jersey showed:
