Organic, non-GMO, 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-adenosylmethionine, more commonly known as SAM-e. Betaine may also support the liver’s 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 may support the building of blood, particularly improving the blood quality in women.
