Betaine Anhydrous

We all want to look after ourselves as best we can, and we all also have different health and fitness goals and targets in mind. Some of us want to build muscle, whilst others may want to burn fat. Some of us however, may be looking to simply boost our health and well-being, which is where certain supplements can really show their true worth. Betaine Anhydrous for example, is a prime illustration of how a supplement can not only help you look better, but can also help you to be fitter and healthier. If you’ve never heard of betaine anhydrous then you’ll want to read the following, very carefully indeed as we delve deeper into the world of Betaine Anhydrous.

What is Betaine Anhydrous?

Betaine anhydrous is actually a type of vitamin which is derived from choline – another important nutrient. It is found commonly in a number of whole foods, including: seafood, grains, cereals, spinach, and sugar beets. It also actually occurs naturally within the human body and it provides a whole host of health and fitness-related benefits.

How does it work?

Primarily betaine anhydrous is used by the body to help naturally reduce and regulate homocysteine levels. Homocysteine is actually a potentially toxic ingredient which is produced via the ingestion of meat. Experts have linked homocysteine with a number of harmful medical conditions, including osteoporosis, ocular deformities, skeletal abnormalities, and cardiovascular thrombosis. Betaine anhydrous however, has been found to lower a person’s natural homocysteine levels. The benefits don’t stop there however, as betaine anhydrous has also been found to help play a crucial role in cell function and intestinal function. It is also known as being ‘lipotropic’ which means that it can assist the body with the breakdown of stored body fat, where it is then converted into energy, making it a very potent weight loss supplement in the process. Its precursor is choline, which means that choline must be present for it to work its magic. On top of that, folic acid, and vitamins B12 and B6, are also required for the betaine to function at its full capacity.

What are the benefits of Betaine Anhydrous?

Some of the primary benefits of betaine anhydrous include the following:

Improved health and well-being

First and foremost, one of the biggest benefits associated with betaine anhydrous, is the fact that it can help promote health and well-being in individuals of all ages, genders, shapes, and sizes. This is again, largely down to the fact that it helps lower and regulate homocysteine levels in human beings, so various health conditions, including cardiovascular thrombosis, and osteoporosis, can be avoided.

Great for the eyes

As we grow older, our vision tends to get worse as our eyes endure ocular degeneration. Another benefit of betaine anhydrous however, is the fact that it has been found to help improve eye health and vision, making it a great supplement for individuals with vision problems.

Fat loss

As mentioned, betaine anhydrous has also been found to be lipotropic, meaning that it can allow the human body to burn off stored body fat, and use it as a primary source of energy. This is because it results in the oxidization of lipids (fats) in the body, so more body fat can be burnt off, and more energy can be produced.

Other benefits include:

  • Fat loss
  • Healthier bones
  • Enhanced digestion
  • Improved nutrient uptake
  • More energy
  • Improved eye health and vision
  • Improved heart health
  • Slight increases in lean muscle mass
  • Reduced and regulated homocysteine levels
  • Great for the liver and kidneys
  • And more...

How and when it should be used

Health Canada Recommended Dose (capsules): Adults: 1 - 8 Capsule(s) 1 time(s) per day. 

Health Canada Recommended Dose (powder): Adults: 1 - 2 Scoop(s) 1 time(s) per day.

Betaine Anhydrous VS betaine HCL

There are other forms of betaine supplement currently available, including betaine HCL, or betaine Hydro Chloride. Betaine HCL is actually derived from beets and is often used in order to increase stomach acid levels. Because of this, betaine HCL is best used for maldigestion, in which digestion is affected due to low stomach acid levels. Because of this, the two are very different to one another, with each one providing their own unique advantages and benefits.

What can you stack it with?

Betaine anhydrous is often stacked with creatine monohydrate to help assist with energy production and athletic performance, although many individuals will also stack it with caffeine, in order to provide an effective pre-workout formula. Not only that, but stacking with caffeine can also provide some very potent and powerful fat-loss benefits, making it great for people looking to lose weight.

I had ordered the capsules before and I love the well being feel that gives. But be careful with the dosage it can give you a little irritability other than that is awesome.

This stuff works for me. It's similar to creatine but obviously different. It's just comparable with the benefits I feel. Better pump and a rep or two extra.

Beets are good for you

I am not a controlled enough study to determine if this actually does anything. Beets are good for you right? Thus...

I'm leaving this same generic comment on the few supplements I bought. I made my own pre workout blend with the raw ingredients from this site. I now have properly dosed pre and post workout shakes, with no filler. This product mixes very well. I will definitely buy this again. I continuously rant and rave to my friends, family and fellow gym goers about this company. Some of them listened!!

This stuff has a strong, bitter, almost fishy taste to it. Hard to mask in my smoothies. But its got a great list of benefits. I'd say spend the little extra for the capsules next time.
