Organic, non-GMO, raw Beet Root Powder provides a wide range of nutrients, but its most significant phytochemical is betaine. This plant chemical may support liver and kidney health by recycling the amino acid methionine to maintain the body's stores of s-adenosyl-methionine, more commonly known as SAM-e. Betaine may also support the livers ability to process fat. This may possibly prevent the accumulation of fatty tissues in the liver, especially in heavy drinkers, and it also may support healthy lipid levels. The American Heart Association, recommends beet juice to support healthy blood pressure levels.
Organic Beet Root Powder is a nourishing tonic that supports the building of blood, particularly improving the blood quality for women. It also may normalize the blood's pH balance (reducing acidity) and may support healthy circulation. Further supporting its role as a possible blood nourisher, Beet Root has been used to support a healthy detoxification process of the hepatic system.
Beet roots are sources of potassium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium and calcium as well as vitamin A, B and C. Beets are a source of phytonutrients called betalains which give beets their dark red color. Betanin and vulgaxanthin are the two best studied betalains from beets, and both have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support.
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Beet Root Powder may include:
● Supports the renal system
● Supports the detoxification process
● Betaine - plays an important role in the health of the cardiovascular system
● Good natural source of folate (also known as vitamin B9 & natural folic acid)
● Source of pectin which may chelate certain heavy metals
● Zinc - helps protect against fatty deposits in the liver & boosts the immune system.
● Normalizing the blood's pH balance
● Helping to support healthy blood pressure levels
● Dimethylglycine - (also known as DMG) may promote healthy heart & cardiovascular system
This powder tends to clump. If clumping occurs, lay the bag on a flat surface and place a towel over the bag. Then pound on the bag until the clumps break up. The towel will help protect the bag from damage.
One or two teaspoons twice daily. One teaspoon of powder provides the nutrition in one beet. Use to add flavor, color, and nutrition to any recipe.
