Beet Root is a good source of essential vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients, but its most significant components are betaine, betalins, and nitrates. These active ingredients in raw beet root have been widely studied for their potential benefits on the ageing brain, liver, blood pressure, chronic inflammation, cardiovascular health, and energy levels.

Beet Root’s Amazing Blend of Phytonutrients
While most refer to it as the humble beet root (probably because it is a root crop and therefore stays grounded), this superfood boast a powerful blend of phytonutrients. One of which is the very significant betaine, a plant compound that helps the liver and kidneys manufacture the anti-depressant and anti-inflammatory compound SAM-e (S-adenosyl-methionine). Betaine aids the liver in the metabolism of fats that can help reduce the risk for fatty liver disease. The benefits of beet root for the liver are particularly important for people with liver disorders associated with alcoholism, smoking, unhealthy diet, and use of liver-damaging drugs.
Beet Root Powder is rich in a special class of phytonutrients called betalains. These phytonutrients is responsible for the beet’s dark red colour and provides the body with potent anti-inflammatory agents, antioxidants, and compounds that assist with liver detox. Two of the betalains called betanin and vulgaxanthin are of utmost importance for their strong free-radical fighting and detoxifying abilities. These plant chemicals are found to be very effective at eliminating toxins acquired from the diet, pollution, and lifestyle.
A Unique Source of Nitrate
Beet Root is a good source of nitrate, a chemical that stimulates blood vessel relaxation that allows for improved blood flow. Consumption of nitrate-rich beet promotes healthy blood pressure and reduces the risk for heart diseases. It is especially important for stabilising high blood pressure, managing atherosclerosis, and reducing the risk of heart attacks.
Dietary nitrate in Beet Root Powder is also beneficial for the brain. Memory loss, learning difficulties, and dementias are often associated with poor blood flow to the brain. Blood is the carrier of oxygen and nutrient required by the nerve cells for transmission of impulses. Increased oxygenation and nourishment to the brain improves mental performance, boosts memory, and can possibly slow the progression of age-related cognitive decline.
Nitrate improves exercise tolerance in athletes and bodybuilders by increasing oxygenation to the muscles. Beet root is suggested to help strengthen the muscles during exercise and promote speedier muscle recovery after long hours of training. Consumption of beet root is also linked with increased energy levels and stamina.
More Unbeatable Benefits of Beet Root
Beet Root Powder provides almost complete nutrition. It contains significant amounts of carbohydrates, proteins, and fiber. Beet root is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin B complex, and Vitamin C, as well as calcium, iron, folate, manganese, magnesium, copper, zinc, potassium, phosphorus, and selenium. The humble beet is low in calories to help with effective weight control.
Beet Root has excellent detoxification and blood-purifying properties. Studies found that it helps to balance blood ph and eliminate fatty acid deposits in the blood. This superfood promotes healthy blood supply and cleanses both the liver and spleen. Beet Root Powder contains the antioxidant ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid) that can manage glucose levels, improve insulin sensitivity, and fight oxidative damage in people with diabetes. Because it is high in fiber, beet root supports healthy digestion and regular bowel movements. Beet Root also contains the compound dimethylglycine that is known to actively protect cardiovascular health and functions.
