What is Betaine?
Betaine is a modified amino acid consisting of glycine with three methyl groups that serves as a methyl donor in several metabolic pathways and is used to treat the rare genetic causes of homocystinuria. Glycine betaine is the amino acid betaine derived from glycine. It has a role as a fundamental metabolite.
Betaine, also called betaine anhydrous, or trimethylglycine (TMG) is a substance that's made in the body. It's involved in liver function, cellular reproduction, and helping make carnitine. It also helps the body metabolize an amino acid called homocysteine. Betaine is useful in preventing wrinkles. Its moisturizing properties soften skin's texture and effectively fill in creases to reduce the deep appearance of wrinkles. Betaine soothes and protects the skin.
