Beet root extract is a compound widely found in nature (such as animals and plants, microorganisms), but mainly in the beet roots. European scientists extracted this compound from plant beets for the first time, so it is called betaine. Betaine, also known as trimethylamine hydantoin or betain, is a quaternary amine-type water-soluble alkaloid, which is white scaly or prismatic crystals or white powder at room temperature. It is highly biocompatible and is extremely easy to dissolve in water. It usually exists in the form of crystalline hydrate. After water absorption is (CH3)3NCH2C00.H20.
Product Name：beet root extract
Botanical source: Beta vulgaris L
Appearance：fine purple powder
Storage Life：2 Years
Because of compatibility with cell and good water absorption, Beet Root Extract is an important buffer substance in the organism. It can act as an osmotic pressure regulator, which can prevent mutations in osmotic pressure in cells, prevent water loss and salt intrusion. In high salt, low water, and extreme temperature conditions, betaine can alleviate and eliminate a series of adverse effects such as DNA replication, protein synthesis and cell proliferation rate decline, and help enhance the carrier under hypertonic conditions Gene expression and the increase of vectors can promote the transfer of betaine into the cell and the transfer of inorganic salts without damaging the function and structure of the cell.
Safety and Dosage
At the end of 2017, European Union Food Safety Authority ，EFSA in short issued opinions on the safety of Beet Root Extract as a new resource food.
Sufficient information on the composition, specifications, batch differences and stability of this ingredient shows tere is no safety risk. Betaine is approved to be added to athletes over 10 years old to increase muscle strength. The recommended maximum intake is 2.5g per day. It is believedthe daily intake of 400mg per day won’t be risky.
