Beet Root (Beta Vulgaris)
Beet Root Supports Heart Health and Healthy Blood Pressure
Beet Root Powder has been used extensively by many cultures as a blood builder. Beets contain bioavailable iron as well as folic acid and increase the oxygen uptake of cells. For some, supplementation with beets or beetroot powder can be an affordable alternative to supplements such as Floravital® (which is more expensive as the price has to cover the glass bottle as well as the juices and other liquids utilized in the product).
The humble beetroot contains folate and manganese as well as Betaine. Although discussed in more detail under our Betaine HCL product, Betaine deserves mention here because it helps the human body to secure nutrition that it cannot manufacture such as methionine (a sulfur compound), critical to liver and kidney health. In helping us to obtain methionine, Betaine can also help joint pain sufferers to form cartilage in their joints and supports browth of hair and nails.
But the benefits Beetroot capsules or Beetroot Powder do not stop there - clinical studies hold that beets aid in supporting heart health and help maintaining a healthy blood pressure. Beets helps the body to produce NO (nitrous oxide), a valuable benefit for athletes and anyone wanting to increase their endurance.
