Betulin is a non-bioactive precursor of betulinic acid and is found in the bark of the Betula alba (white birch) tree.
Scientists have studied betulin in mice, and they found that the ingredient that is abundant in birch bark lowered cholesterol and improved insulin sensitivity. They also found the mice became more resistant to plaque buildup in the arteries that can lead to heart attack.
