High Intensity Health with Mike Mutzel, MS

Dr. Jason discusses how betaine has been shown to:

Improve lactic acid buffering and cellular hydration in horses Increase oxygen consumption (VO2) in sprinters

Increase post-exercise muscle tissue oxygen saturation

Increase Krebs cycle efficiency Increase power output during various activities, including vertical jump and bench press throw

Increase lean muscle mass and reduce fat mass

Jason discusses some novel mechanisms ascribed to therapeutic dosing of betaine, including stimulating growth hormone, improving insulin and IGF-1 signaling, and improving synthesis of cellular carnitine—the key ingredient that helps shuttle lipids into the mitochondria to be burned as fuel.
