What is Betaine & why is it used in toothpaste?

Betaine is derived from sugar beet and is one of the ingredients we use to make our range of natural and organic toothpastes.

It 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. 

Betaine-containing toothpaste can help relieve several subjective symptoms of dry mouth syndrome (Xerostomia) as well as relieving gum irritation.

Despite being derived from sugar beet, Betaine is not sweet in taste and is not linked to sugar, so is not bad for teeth.
