BetaPower™ is targeted to both heavy trainers and athletes, as well as any active person interested in improving sports performance. Betaine has been the subject of a range of studies indicating health and performance benefits including a significant improvement in strength and power. A recent study conducted by the University of Connecticut measured the increase in performance levels of athletes who consumed 2.5 grams of betaine per day over a two week period. The results indicated more powerful jumping (+7%), more powerful bench throw (+30%), more forceful squat (+8%) and more forceful bench press (+35%). And these results were evident in all of the athletes tested. Additionally, betaine protects against dehydration, reduces cardiovascular disease and can improve liver and kidney function.

Betaine available on the market can be of natural or synthetic origin and it is not always clear from the product labels. Make sure your product contains the guaranteed high quality and purity of Danisco‚Äôs BetaPower™.
