Betaine Synthesis and Metabolism

Betaine (also known as trimethylglycine [TMG]) is a nutrient that we need for healthy cardiovascular, liver and muscle function. It plays a key role in the methionine cycle, which has wider effects on several processes, including: making proteins, switching genes on and off, and producing phosphocreatine to fuel short bursts of exercise.

Betaine also helps to maintain the water content, volume and structure of cells (osmoregulation). This trait analyzes how effectively you produce (or ‘synthesize’) and use (‘metabolize’) betaine based on your gene variants. Reduced production and/or increased usage of betaine may mean you need to get more betaine from your diet
