Perfect for health-conscious individuals seeking a natural energy boost, fitness enthusiasts, and anyone aiming to infuse their lifestyle with a touch of wellness, our organic beet powder is a simple yet powerful addition to your daily routine. Derived from a single ingredient (beets!), just one serving of this concentrated powder can deliver the same, if not more, nutrients as a larger glass of beet juice.
Beets have long been around and valued for their vast health benefits; they’ve even appeared in Greek mythology and ancient Roman wall art! Beets were first grown for the use of their greens in medicinal purposes, and later their roots were utilized mainly for their sugars. In modern times, beets are utilized for their powerful vitamin and mineral content, namely potassium, folate (Vitamin B9), and iron. They are also supportive of digestion and enhance the body's utilization of oxygen, which leads to an increase in athletic performance.
Known for their sweet, earthy flavor and vibrant red color (which comes from betalains, an antioxidant that is helpful in fighting cancer), one of the major benefits of beets are from their high nitrate content. Nitrates are a compound that is turned into nitric oxide in the body, which helps relax and widen the blood vessels. This relaxation of the blood vessels helps to lower blood pressure and oxygenate the blood. This effect on the blood makes beets specifically a great addition to your pre/post workout routine to help boost endurance and stamina.
Some of the most prominent vitamins and minerals in beets are iron, potassium, and folate, which help with energy levels, cell formation, and nerve function. Beets are also known to help ease digestion, from their effects on the gut microbiome, and gently detox the liver and colon.
