Beet Root - Powder, Organic

Herbs: Beet Root - Powder, Organic

Botanical Name: Beta vulgaris
Origin: China/Canada

Beet Root Powder (Beta Vulgaris) contains high levels of important vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. Rich in iron, potassium, magnesium, A, C, B1, B2, B3, B6, calcium, copper, phosphorous, sodium, iodine, boron, soluble and insoluble fiber. Beet Root is a rich source of carbohydrates and protein.

Betaine, a phytochemical in beet powder helps the kidneys and liver to process an amino acid known as SAM-e. SAM-e occurs naturally in the body. Adding beet root powder to your diet increases the production of SAM-e in the body naturally.

Almost a thousand published studies have reported on the array of benefits elevated levels of SAM-e provides for the liver. The liver contains the third highest amount of SAM-e in the body, after the adrenal and pineal glands.

Beets may be better than many have realized. New findings on brain health come from Wake Forest University and were reported in the January 2011 issue of Nitric Oxide: Biology and Chemistry. Beets have a high concentration of the compound nitrate, which gets converted to nitrite (a vasodilator, which means it expands blood vessels) when it comes into contact with the healthy bacteria that live in the mouth. The high levels of nitrates in beets help in widening blood vessels and circulate an increase in oxygen- rich blood to the heart muscle; the nitrates relax your veins.

In their small study, seven adults (all age 70 or older) each consumed 16 ounces of beet juice with breakfast for two days and then ate a normal, healthful lunch and dinner (that also included some healthful nitrates), after which they had MRI scans to measure blood flow through their brains. At the same time, for the sake of comparison, another group of seven adults of the same age ate a diet that emphasized low-nitrate foods for two days, also followed by MRI scans. The two groups then switched diets for another two days, and had additional MRI scans. Research finding: Drinking beet juice brought increased blood flow to the white matter of the frontal lobes of the brain, the area most strongly associated with degeneration that leads to dementia.

One teaspoon of beet root powder is equivalent to one beet. You can use one – two teaspoons up to four times a day. Beet powder may be encapsulated.

    It is the Red Beet, botanical name: Beta vulgaris rubra. It is just the roots dried and then ground into a powder, no additives.

Food Coloring??
by Keri on Mar 29, 2013

Hello there. My daughter has food allegies to wheat, dairy, soy, corn, and eggs. I am wondering if I can use the beet powder as food coloring?? She wants a pink cake for her birthday and I can't figure how to do that with her limited diet. Could I add this to my "frosting" mixture for color???? Thanks so much!

    Yes! I have used it for this purpose before and as long as you don't use so much that it tastes like a beet it works great!

Cheaper Prices!
by Karen on Jun 20, 2012

I would like to comment on the beet root power as well as Erinís Green Drink Mix.

I have been purchasing Beet Max and Barley Max from Hallelujah Acres for quite a while now but decided to give these two products a try. First, the beet root is the exact same thing Iíve been paying triple for! It dissolved nicely in water using my magic bullet and tastes great. I have been taking beet root to help lower my blood pressure.

The green drink mix has the same ingredients as the barley max plus other beneficial ingredients. My main concern with the switch was that I wouldnít be able to incorporate it into water to drink 3x/day (I didnít want the extra calories of juice, yogurt, etc as Iím also trying to lose weight). It actually mixed better than the barley max and was easier on the palette too! And the fact that it is also 1/3 of the cost is a huge benefit!

Thank you to your CS rep who took the time to answer my questions on these products a week ago. I tried them based on her response and am very happy I did!

Amazing
by Anonymous Customer on Jun 22, 2011

My husband is diabetic, and his readings were over 230 daily for 3 months. He had 2 tbsp of beet root powder with water, and the next day his reading was 150 the next day. He had 2 more tbsp and his reading was 135. Amazing!

Fantastic product
by Denise D. on Jun 22, 2011

My husband and I take the one teaspoon of the beet root powder mixed in water after our rigorous workouts. This powder has everything that is essential to the body and we feel great. I cancelled our expensive liquid supplements after researching and applying the herb knowledge that you provide on this great site. The beet powder also works well in our vegetable drinks. Fantastic product and thank you for all the information you provide.
