New Research Shows Beet Juice Enhances Sports Performance!


Historical Highlights


Beets have been used since ancient Rome and Greece for medicinal purposes, and as a staple for centuries in Europe. They were introduced to the Americas in the 1800’s. They were known for their powers to reduce fever, heal wounds, and remedy constipation.   


Amazing Health Benefits


Beet juice is low in fat and high in fiber. It's rich in phytonutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins B and C. Vitamin C fights aging and protects the body from cancers by assisting in the removal of free radicals. Fresh beet juice is rich in iron, magnesium, manganese and potassium which supports heart health. The phytonutrient glycine-betaine is abundant in beet juice. This compound diminishes homocysteine in the blood. Homocysteine damages blood vessels by increasing the potential for blood clots, as well as augmenting the creation of plaque, thus increasing heart and cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
