Beet Root provides a wide range of nutrients, but its
most significant phytochemical is betaine. This plant chemical helps the
liver and kidneys recycle the amino acid methionine to maintain the body's
stores of s-adenosylmethionine, more commonly known as SAM-e. Betaine also
helps the liver process fat. This prevents the accumulation of fatty
tissues in the liver (steatosis), especially in heavy drinkers, and it also
helps moderate triglycerides and LDL cholesterol in the blood. The American
Heart Association, recommends beet juice to promote healthy blood
Beet Root is a wonderful cleansing and nourishing tonic that
builds the blood, particularly improving the blood quality for menstruating
women. It also normalizes the blood's pH balance (reducing acidity) and
purifies the blood by flushing away fatty deposits and improving
circulation. Further supporting its role as a blood purifier, Beet Root has
been used to detoxify and heal the liver and spleen.*
Boosts Nitric Oxide Levels* See Double-Blind Study here:
Check out this study on Beets and running:
The red-violet pigments in
beets are not only beautiful, but they are also actually a unique and
highly valuable form of antioxidant called betacyanins, widely studied for
their ability to promote optimal health by supporting healthy
detoxification and managing inflammation responses. Beets also contain a
100% natural form of betaine, a key body nutrient, along with potassium,
vitamin C, iron and other vitamins and minerals. A recent study in the
Journal of Applied Physiology showed that beet juice consumption increased
stamina and exercise tolerance.*
Beet Root provides a wide range of nutrients and is a
wonderful cleansing and nourishing tonic that builds the blood and improves blood quality. It can also normalize the blood's pH balance and

PROMOTES HEALTHY IMMUNE FUNCTIONALITY:
Beets have shown helpful in supporting a healthy immune system due to their
nutritional profile of vitamin C, folate, manganese, iron, copper, zinc, and
phytochemicals. The potent antioxidants in beetroot juice can also support
your natural immune defenses by helping protect your body from the harmful
effects of free radicals.
SUPPORTS A SENSIBLE WEIGHT LOSS/MANAGEMENT PLAN:
Beets are extremely rich in vitamin C, dietary fiber, betanin, and folate.
These nutrients are known to support a sensible weight management plan when
accompanied by proper diet and exercise. Additionally, while beetroots are
naturally loaded with nutrients, they contain only a few calories and very
SUPPORTS HEALTHY BRAIN FUNCTIONING
: The abundance of nitrates in beets can support healthy brain
functionality. Beets are also rich in phytonutrients known as betalains,
which possess potent antioxidant properties which protect your cells
against Free Radicals/Oxidative Stress, which may play a role in heart
disease, cancer, and other diseases. Free radicals are molecules produced
when your body breaks down food or when you're exposed to tobacco smoke or
ENHANCES HEALTHY ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE AND RECOVERY:
Many athletes consume beets to help maintain physical endurance and support
healthy recovery after physical exertion.
According to a 2013 study that was published in the journal Physiology,
beetroot juice can support healthy athletic performance due to its high
HELPS TO MAINTAIN HEALTHY CARDIOVASCULAR FUNCTIONALITY:
Beets can support a healthy heart due to their high concentration of
potassium, magnesium, and other heart-healthy nutrients. According to a
study published in the journal
Hypertension, drinking at least one
cup of beetroot juice a day can support healthy cardiovascular function by
maintaining healthy blood pressure levels that are already within the
PROMOTES HEALTHY EYE FUNCTIONALITY:
Like many brightly colored vegetables, beets are packed with natural
pigments, such as lutein and zeaxanthin. These two pigments possess
antioxidant properties that support healthy vision and protect your eyes
from oxidative stress. Drinking beetroot juice is also a great way to boost
your intake of vitamin A, a crucial nutrient for optimal eye health.
BEETROOT DETOXIFIES THE LIVER:
Beetroot juice Researchers claims that compounds found in beets detoxify
the liver and have the ability to cure diseases of the digestive system.
The benefit that you thus receive is that it encourages liver cleansing,
improves liver functioning, and protects it from excessive alcohol
There are also indications that beetroot juice has the ability to cure
kidney and liver diseases, particularly the buildup of fatty deposits in
the liver caused by alcohol abuse, protein deficiency, or diabetes. Beetroot
juice can also dissolve kidney stones.
Some of this research has also shown that consumption of beet fiber may
increase CD8 cells, which detect and remove cancer-causing cell mutations
in the colon. Colon cancer is the third most diagnosed cancer type in the
US. Increased production of CD8 cells in the colon effectively fights colon
A case study that is often cited is that of Dr. Ferenczi of Hungary who had
his cancer patients drink a quart of beetroot juice each day, which was
reportedly effective in breaking down and eliminating tumors.
BEETS COMBAT HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE:
A research study has shown that people who drank two cups of beetroot juice
had lowered blood pressure within about 60 minutes of drinking the juice
with a peak drop occurring 3-4 hours after ingestion. The reduction in
blood pressure continued to be observed until up to 24 hours after the
juice was ingested.
Professor Ahluwalia who conducted the research says that the decrease in
blood pressure was due to the chemical formation of nitrite from the
dietary nitrate in the beet juice. The conclusion made was that one of the
big benefits of beet juice is that it provides another way to combat high
blood pressure without using medication.
BEETS BOOST GLUTATHIONE LEVELS IN THE BODY:
One more of the benefits of beet juice is the fact that it has been found
to increase the body's production of glutathione.
This substance, which is naturally produced by the human body, is known as
the body's master antioxidant and detoxifier. Virtually every cell of the
body uses it to neutralize toxins.
We, therefore, need this substance to protect our eyes, skin, kidneys,
liver, and many other organs from toxic by-products produced by the body
through normal metabolism.
If your system is rich in glutathione because of your consumption of beet
juice they can perform their essential function of pulling these harmful
toxins into the colon from where they can be flushed down the toilet.
Without adequate levels of glutathione, many environmental toxins will,
however, remain inside your body and possibly cause health problems.
BEETROOT JUICE CAN PROVIDE PROTECTION AGAINST BIRTH DEFECTS:
Another one of the benefits of beet juice is the fact that it is a very
good source of folic acid (also called folate). To prevent the possibility
of birth defects, doctors recommend the B vitamin folate in a pregnant
woman's diet. Click Here for Info.
. Folic Acid is a key vitamin for proper fetus development as it helps in
the proper development of the infant's spinal column and optimal brain
development. Folate is very involved in the production of new cells and the
maintenance of existing cells.
BEETS AND CHOLESTEROL:
One of the important health benefits of beet juice is its ability to lower
bad LDL cholesterol levels and raise healthy HDL cholesterol levels in the
EXERCISING AND WORKING OUT:
Next time you go to jump on that treadmill, or go for a hike, bike ride, or
walk, consider a beet powder shake to get you a pick-me-up to get you
through your workout or activity. Already a seasoned athlete? Beet juice
may just kick up your training and performance a notch in the gym or on the
court or field.
