Health & Wellness Benefits
• Rich source of antioxidants and phytonutrients for glowing health and wellness*
• Supports healthy liver function*
• Supports a healthy heart and circulatory system*
• Recent study shows may boost stamina and exercise endurance*
• Traditionally used as a blood-building and cleansing tonic*
• Supports healthy Phase 2 detoxification and glutathione activity*
The red-violet pigments in beets are not only beautiful, they are actually a unique and highly valuable form of antioxidant called betacyanins, widely studied for their ability to promote optimal health by supporting healthy detoxification and managing inflammation responses. Beets also contain a 100% natural form of betaine, an important body nutrient, along with potassium, iron and other vitamins and minerals. A recent study in the Journal of Applied Physiology showed that beet juice consumption increased stamina and exercise tolerance.
Beets are a natural source of dietary nitrates, which convert to nitric oxide (N-O) in the body. Nitric Oxide is a key signaling molecule in the body. Beets are also extremely high in polyphenols, which provide antioxidant support. Now, you can get the benefits of beets without all the hassle.
Organic beet help your body to naturally produce more nitric oxide. As your N-O levels improve, you may experience more energy and more mental focus. Most importantly, nitric oxide helps your arteries to relax for improved blood flow and circulation*, supporting cardiovascular health*. Nitric oxide helps the body improve oxygenation and nutrient delivery throughout the body, helping you to feel and perform at your best.
Nitric oxide (N-O) is a key signaling molecule in the body, and is unique in that its gaseous form makes it easy to penetrate cell membranes. It helps the body to relax blood vessels and thereby increases circulation and enhances oxygen delivery throughout the body.

Healthy circulation is the key to overall health.

Sufficient N-O status helps promote optimal circulation, which in turn supports cardiovascular health. Supple, relaxed arteries help the body promote healthy blood pressure. Higher N-O levels and optimal circulation help the body promote mental clarity and focus.

Athletes depend on N-O for peak performance.

For athletes, optimal N-O status helps promote energy and oxygen efficiency to improve physical performance, and helps the body extend endurance and improve intensity levels. N-O also helps the body produce more energy. The increased oxygen and nutrient delivery to muscles also supports faster recovery.

Beets are one of the few primary sources of dietary nitrates. When swallowed, our body converts the nitrates to N-O in our blood cells.
