Betaine is a methylating agent indicated for the treatment of homocystinuria to decrease elevated homocysteine blood concentrations. Included within the category of homocystinuria are cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS) deficiency; 5,10- methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) deficiency; and cobalamin cofactor metabolism (cbl) defect. Betaine acts as a methyl group donor in the remethylation of homocysteine to methionine in patients with homocystinuria. It occurs naturally in the body, is a metabolite of choline, and is present in small amounts in foods such as beets, spinach, cereals, and seafood.
