Power of Beetroot: Superjuice

Beetroot is the new superfood on the market, with unlimited benefits to how it can aid your performance, your health and your wellness.

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.

Beetroot Health Benefits:

  • An excellent source of iron and folate, both of which are needed by pregnant women.
  • Helps lower high blood pressure and elevates low blood pressure.
  • Contains betaine, which studies have shown has significant anti-cancer properties and is  effective in inhibiting the formation of cancer-causing cells in the body and can also protect against colon and stomach cancer.
  • Fiber content helps with bowel movements. Juicing beetroot and drinking it on a regular basis can also relieve chronic constipation.
  • Helps detoxify the liver.
  • Contains tryptophan, which relaxes the mind and creates a sense of well-being, similar to chocolate
  • Helps faster recovery from gym sessions and hard endurance sessions
  • Has been proven to improve endurance performance due to its nitric oxide content
