What is Betaine & why is it used in toothpaste?

Derived from sugar beet, Betaine has a strong affinity with water and is utilised by body cells to protect themselves against dehydration. When added to toothpastes, Betaine encourages the production of saliva and helps to maintain moisture levels within the mouth. Despite being derived from sugar beet, Betaine is not sweet in taste and is not linked to sugar, so is not bad for teeth.

People with sensitive gums or suffering with dry mouth often experience irritation of the oral mucosa when using sodium lauryl sulphate containing products for oral hygiene. The use of the betaine-containing toothpaste can help relief several subjective symptoms of dry mouth syndrome (Xerostomia) as well as relieving gum irritation.
