Betaine is a crystalline alkaloid which is sweet in taste and is present in food like brown rice, broccoli, sweet potato, sugar beet, beef, and quinoa. Multiple pieces of research are being undertaken to study the potential health benefits of betaines, leading to a surge of interest in the LATAM region. One of the leading health benefits of betaines being researched is their ability to reduce the level of homocysteine. Homocysteine is an amino acid that is required by the human body, but when produced excessively, can cause plaque build-up and clogged arteries, leading to stroke, heart diseases, osteoporosis, and other cardiovascular diseases. Although rare, people over 50 years, children with a genetic predisposition towards high homocysteine levels or people suffering from alcoholism might be most at risk. Thus, betaines by lowering the levels homocysteine help to prevent and fight conditions like heart diseases.
