Beet Root - Powder, Organic

Herbs: Beet Root - Powder

Botanical Name: Beta vulgaris
Origin: China

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.

Beet root quantities
by kelly on Oct 19, 2014

Andrew ... regarding your measurements comment. Does that mean that there are 75 teaspoons in a 0.5 lb bag of beet root powder and each teaspoon has about 3000 mg of powder? trying to determine if it works out better to get it bulk or already in capsules?

Re: milligrams of beet root powder in a teaspoon?
by Andrew on Jul 18, 2014

In response to question by Kat on Mar 5, 2014 --

Measuring 10 teaspoons of freshly opened beet root power onto a laboratory balance and dividing by 10 gives about 3000 mg of powder per level US teaspoon.

Since 0.5 pound equals about 226.8 grams, that works out to about 75 US teaspoons of beet root powder per bag. Note that 1 US teaspoon is equivalent to 0.985 metric teaspoon or 1.38 UK teaspoon.

milligrams of beet root powder in a teaspoon?
by Kat on Mar 5, 2014

I can buy capsules that are 500 mg in one capsule. How many milligrams of beet root powder are in a teaspon of yours? Thanks, Kat

    Re: milligrams of beet root powder in a teaspoon?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 17, 2014

    Unfortunately we only measure it out by 1/2 lb. and don't do any other measurements, therefore, I'm not sure how many milligrams are in a teaspoon. I apologize for the inconvenience.

What benefits best beetroot juice or powder

    Re: Beetroot
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 14, 2014

    Both are going to have the same nutritional value, the deciding factor is really the quantity you would have to take to equal the other. Beet juice is fantastic for being fresh however, you will have to drink more of it than taking a few capsules of the Beet powder, because it is a more concentrated form. 1 tsp of the powder is equal to 1 beet. Thanks!

Nitrate Content
by Jamie on Feb 28, 2014

Your product looks very promising and affordable. Is your powder tested for nitrates? I know a lot of beet root powders don't contain as high of levels of nitrates.

    Re: Nitrate Content
    by Bulk Herb Store on Feb 28, 2014

    We receive a Certificate of Analysis from our suppliers to ensure quality, and on that I did not see any nitrate content. Thanks!

by Susie on Dec 26, 2013

I have to watch my iron intake. Would you be able to give an idea how much iron as you state. Substantial please?

    Re: % of Iron
    by Bulk Herb Store on Dec 30, 2013

    Hello, from the research I've done, there is about 1 mg of iron in 1 tsp of Beet Root powder. Thanks!

Made In The U.S.A.
by Ronnie Chase on Nov 5, 2013

So pleased to find your Beet Root Powder not only Organic, but proudly made in the USA. Further your price for USA item actually less than what I mistakenly purchased elsewhere. When I spoke to Starwest Botanicals, I was told that Beet Root Powder Organic was not available in the USA. I've sent your website to the Power Hour for their review, after telling them as Americans we wish to buy American.
God bless The USA.

Beet Juice Powder
by Hal on Oct 28, 2013

How many servings (beet equivalents) are in your 1/2 pound container?

    Re: Beet Juice Powder
    by Bulk Herb Store on Oct 29, 2013

    We are not able to give you the ratio per 1/2 lb of beet root powder. We don't measure out the amounts per serving on each of our herbs. With beet root, you can use 1 to 2 teaspoons or whatever you want per serving. Thanks!

beet powder
by Kim on Aug 26, 2013

Would this be something that you could mix w/ your juiced vegetables? I juice and I am not always able to get beets at my local store, let alone organic. Wondering if would be something I could mix in my juice after juicing my other vegetables?

    Re: beet powder
    by Bulk Herb Store on Aug 27, 2013

    Absolutely! It would be very beneficial to add to your juiced vegetables. Thanks!

Nitrate Content per serving
by Dylan Dewdney on Jun 20, 2013


Can you tell me the mgs of nitrate per gram of your beet powder?

I am an extreme endurance competitor and I'm hoping your product can be a good alternative to the costly beet juice shots out there designed specifically for athletes.

    Re: Nitrate Content per serving
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jun 27, 2013

    Hello! At this time we don't have a Nutrition List for the product. Thank you.

Beet root powder
by Militza on Jun 10, 2013

Hi, I was just wondering how much sugar is in this beet powder, would you be able to tell me? Thanks.

    Re: Beet root powder
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jun 13, 2013

    The sugar content will vary quite a bit from batch to batch and from bag to bag so this is not something we can get an exact measurement on. Thank you!

beet root powder
by julia on May 28, 2013

is it ok to take it when pregnant?

    Re: beet root powder
    by Bulk Herb Store on May 28, 2013

    Yes! It would be a good Idea to rotate any herbs you take just to make sure you get the proper balance and don't take to much. Be sure to consult with your midwife before taking any herbs or supplements.

by Jamraft on May 10, 2013

What type of beets are used for beet powder? How is it processed?

    Re: Beet
    by Bulk Herb Store on May 10, 2013

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

Beet root powder/diarrhea
by Carol on May 7, 2013

Does this beet root powder cause loose bowels? If I eat many beets I will have diarrhea, so I am hesitant to try this.

    Re: Beet root powder/diarrhea
    by Bulk Herb Store on May 9, 2013

    If beets cause diarrhea for you, it is very possible that the beet root powder will have the same affect if taken in large amounts.

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!

    Re: Food Coloring??
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 30, 2013

    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!

Helps Chronic Fatigue
by Lucie C on Aug 22, 2012

I began taking one teaspoon of both the organic beet root powder and Erin's Green Drink Mix in my morning tea after being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia syndrome. Both have helped the debilitating Chronic Fatigue experience with Fibromyalgia to go away. They give my body the exact nutrients I need and norish it. The beet root powder disolves instantly in liquids.

I am very thankful that God made these amazing products to nourish our bodies and I am thankful to find them here on TBHS. For me, they have worked wonders and have given me my life back.

Thank you for making these products very affordable!

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!

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.
