What is Betulinic Acid?
Betulinic acid is a plant compound found in large quantities particularly in birch bark and the mushroom Chaga. Researchers have found it to be a powerful antioxidant with antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties.
Betulinic acid stimulates the apotosis of cells
A body cell is supposed to destroy itself when irreparable damage has occurred in it. That process is called apotosis. In some cells the natural system is disturbed so that the breakdown of the cell does not take place, and the cell can continue to divide. Betulinic acid stimulates the natural apotosis of cells.
Betulinic acid is a powerful antioxidant that reduces oxidative stress. It may therefore have a positive effect in people with thick dram inflammation or Crohn's disease. Betulinic acid also helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, making it suitable for people with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes.
