The size of the trials was small, the researchers admit, but they couldn’t find any evidence of a publication bias. So there is not all kinds of unpublished research in which supplementation with betaine has no effect on fat mass.

Conclusions
“This systematic review and meta-analysis provided further evidence that supplemental betaine could reduce body fat in human subjects”, write the researchers. “Dietary betaine supplementation might be an effective approach for treatment of obesity and improving body composition.”
