As environmental temperature increases, birds start panting to lose heat: increasing respiration helps to evaporate more water and has a cooling effect. However, this results in more water loss from the cells. In order to maintain the water balance in the cells during heat stress an energy demanding process is necessary: the Na+/K+ pump across the cell membranes. Due to its osmotic function, feeding betaine can help to regulate water retention in the cells, therefore the cells rely less on the Na+/K+ pump activity which in turn saves energy within the cell and dehydration can be prevented.
INVE Belgium offers INVEBET, a liquid form of natural anhydrous betaine, containing min. 30% of betaine derived from sugar beet.
In addition, for layers BETALAY is also available which is a liquid betaine source combined with lactic acid.
