Beetroot is the new superfood on the market, with unlimited benefits to how it can aid your performance, your health and your wellness.
Who would of thought a vegetable grown in the ground could have so many beneficial pros for it for your general wellness and life! The little beet contains Vitamins A, B and C; antioxidants beta-carotene and beta-cyanine; folic acid, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, iron, and fiber! “The pigments in beetroot are known as betalains and there are two color types. Betacyanins, which are vibrant red/violet in color, and betaxanthins, which are yellow in color. Both forms of betalains contain nitrogen and they work as both antioxidants and anti-inflammatories” (Bradley Sly) This is an incredible benefit to this product, as a natural anti oxident that is also gentle on your stomach lining.
