Promotes Healthy Liver, Cardiovascular, and Cellular Function
Betacol® contains Tillandsia usneoides, a source of important phytochemicals that contribute to cardiovascular and cellular health. Several bioactive compounds, including vitamin C, carotene, and 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaric acid (HMG), are found in Tillandsia usneoides.
Vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals in Betacol® work at the cellular level to maintain healthy blood glucose and cholesterol levels in individuals with normal levels. Betaine in Betacol is important for healthy liver function, especially the metabolism of fat.
How Betacol Keeps You Healthy?
Promotes healthy liver function. Betaine is a lipotrophic agent that promotes transportation and metabolism of fats, helping to prevent the accumulation of fat in the liver. Several studies demonstrate betaine’s unique ability to support a healthy liver.
Supports cardiovascular healthTillandsia usneoides supports arterial health by helping to maintain normal serum cholesterol levels in individuals with normal levels. HMG, the bioactive compound in Tillandsia usneoides, has been shown in several studies to help support cardiovascular health factors.
Several studies have confirmed that HMG operates at the enzymatic level in the kidney and intestine. Studies also indicate that HMG may help maintain healthy cardiovascular function. Betacol contains vitamin B6, which is important for red-blood-cell formation and helps maintain optimum homocysteine levels in the blood.
Vitamin B6 is well documented for its ability to support the heart muscle and associated blood vessels.
Promotes healthy cellular function. Vitamin B6 is required to synthesize the nucleic acids RNA and DNA—the molecules that carry the genetic instructions for normal cellular growth and reproduction.
Betacol also contains niacin, which functions as a coenzyme that is key to cellular respiration, carbohydrate and protein metabolism, and lipid synthesis. Niacin is a hydrogen acceptor, combining with hydrogen atoms as they are removed from the food we eat.
Once this occurs, the coenzyme continues transferring these atoms to other compounds in a series of complex oxidation reactions. Several studies indicate that extracts from Tillandsia usneoides contain compounds capable of reducing serum glucose. HMG may also help support liver function.
