Roarganics Beetroot Juice Powder
The humble purple beetroot is another superfood that gives a chock full of vitamins and nutrients which makes an awesome addition to daily diet and even as a pre- or post-workout drink.
Beetroot powder comes from the purple beetroot crop. The root crop itself is often used as an ingredient in salads and other vegetable dishes.
Whilst beetroot may not be as celebrated as other superfoods, its deep purple color shows off the wondrous combination of vitamins and nutrients in it, such as: protein, fiber, folate, magnesium, potassium, manganese, iron, and vitamins B6 and C.
Beetroot’s amazing power comes from its staggering amount of nitrates. Nitrate is a compound that when converted to nitric oxide, helps dilate blood vessels. However, in order for the body to realize this benefit, beetroot needs to be consumed daily.
Thankfully, beetroot powder is now made available, so including it in everyday diet to reap its many nutrients and vitamins is easy as pie. A teaspoon of beetroot powder is already equivalent to one whole beet.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF BEETROOT JUICE POWDER
Maintains a Healthy Heart and Helps Lower Blood Pressure
Because of beetroot’s nitrate compound, the heart can rest easy. Nitrates help widen the blood vessels thereby, putting less stress on the heart to pump oxygen and deliver nutrients all throughout the body. In fact, in several studies, beetroot has been shown to help increase blood circulation and lower blood pressure.
Increases Exercise Endurance and Stamina and Reduces Recovery Time
Whilst beets spare the heart from working too much, it helps muscles work harder during exercise. Thanks to beets’ nitrate compound, blood flows easily, so oxygen is then delivered to the muscles. Oxygen is badly needed by the body, especially when it’s engaged in an aerobic workout like long bike rides or runs. Beetroot has been shown to help the body workout longer.
Those who do intensity training like sprints and weight lifting can also benefit from taking beetroot powder. Beetroot helps lessen the fatigue that comes with high-intensity exercise because it helps reduce the breakdown of creatine phosphate, a compound responsible for muscle contraction.
Beetroot is the body’s hero in combating soreness that comes after an intense workout. This is why beetroot makes a great pre- and post-workout supplement.
Supports the Brain
The nitrate compound in beets makes beets a total winner in increasing the blood flow of oxygen-rich blood to the brain. Healthy blood circulation to the brain translates to improving memory, focus, and emotion regulation. It is also associated with improving the mental condition of people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Taking beetroot powder at a young age may help support brain health as one grows older.
