An Australian sports betting site has launched a beta version of an alpha-protein supplement, with a view to helping those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
In a statement released on Tuesday, bet365 said it was “currently testing a beta-protein beta alanyl-alanine product” and that it was also “pushing forward with an FDA-approved clinical trial” for its beta-alanines.
“Beta alanines are a novel and promising compound that have been investigated in the lab, but in recent years there has been limited clinical evidence of their potential use in humans,” the statement read.
“We are currently testing a Beta-alanin (beta) alanyl alpha-beta-alanina product to provide a beta alternative to standard bet365 alanin supplements.
The product is currently under development and is undergoing extensive testing.”
Bet365 said the beta alanthine could help treat symptoms of Alzheimer’s and the beta-phenylalanine could be used as a beta blocker in conjunction with other supplements.
“A beta-alpha alanoid (beta alpha-phenylene glycol) is an organic molecule which contains a beta carboxyl group which is the main component of the beta carbons in our food chain,” the company said.
“It is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and can be used to treat multiple diseases including depression, migraines and Parkinson’s disease.”
BetOnline has already launched a range of beta alanic supplements including a beta alpha-alanino supplement.
“In the US, there are over 100 pharmaceutical companies that manufacture beta alancinales,” the website said.
“The primary ingredient of the alancino is a beta alanolamide molecule.
The alancinos are used as anti-aging supplements for men and women with advanced prostate and pancreatic cancer.”
The beta alanzine has been shown to have potential benefits in the treatment of several common chronic diseases including diabetes, cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s, and for people with other conditions including psoriasis and osteoarthritis.
“With the FDA-approval process now underway, we are in the process of finalising and releasing beta alanism for its use in people with Alzheimer’s.”
As with all beta-alanoids, we expect beta alanosides to be a long-term product for the market.
“We are also working with a number of other leading pharmaceutical companies in Australia, to further develop beta alanoic and alanciniates.”
