A veritable titan of nutrition, beetroot is rich in calcium, iron and vitamins A and C and is abundant in antioxidants. These antioxidants combat disease causing free radicals in the body and support healthy, glowing skin by counteracting signs of ageing. Beetroot is an excellent source of folic acid (great for expectant mums) and a good source of fibre, manganese and potassium.
Beetroot fibre can increase white blood cell production and is a very rich source of glutamine, an amino acid essential for the health of the intestinal tract. Beetroot is also naturally rich in nitrate compounds that can improve blood flow, specifically to the brain, and lower blood pressure, leading to notable health benefits. Oh, and it is also an aphrodisiac.
Olympic athletes include beetroot in their diets, as it is believed to significantly improve athletic performance, helping muscles to recover faster following exercise. It is commonly thought to help reduce fatigue and elevate energy levels to keep you functioning for longer
Our brilliant organic beetroot is such a fantastic all rounder that we have made it our hero ingredient in richly fruity UPBEET and a key player in our aromatic ROASTED and decadent HIMALAYAN SALTED CACAO.
Excellent source of fibre, manganese, potassium, vitamins and folic acid.
