Also know as the Common Beet or Sugar Beet, our Beet Root Powder is simply the root of the plant dried and powdered. Great for adding to smoothies!

Organic beets are a whole-food powerhouse of important vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. They are rich in iron, potassium, magnesium, A, C, B1, B2, B3, B6, calcium, copper, phosphorous, sodium, iodine, Riboflavin, Thiamine, protein and fiber.


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.
