Health Benefits of Beet Powder

 High in Antioxidants 

Antioxidants are compounds that help neutralize harmful free radicals, preventing oxidative stress and damage to your cells. Some studies have found that antioxidants could protect against many types of chronic disease, such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

Beets are naturally high in disease-fighting phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins and trace minerals. In fact, beets are an excellent source of a certain type of phytonutrients called betalains, which have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and supply many of the health benefits of beets.

Betalains also act as a natural plant pigment and are responsible for providing beets with their vibrant color. Beet greens also contain a good amount of lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoids that play a central role in eye health and can reduce the risk of conditions like macular degeneration and cataracts.

 Relieve Inflammation 

Inflammation is a normal response by the immune system that helps protect the body against foreign invaders and infection. However, chronic inflammation is at the root of most diseases and may be a major contributor to chronic conditions like heart disease, cancer and even obesity.

In one animal model, beetroot supplementation was able to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in rats. A human study also confirmed the anti-inflammatory properties of beets, showing that both cooked beets and beetroot juice were able to lower levels of inflammatory markers in people with high blood pressure.

 Promote Heart Health 

One of the biggest benefits of beet powder is its ability to promote heart health. Beets are a rich source of dietary nitrates, which act as vasodilators to aid in improving blood flow and reducing blood pressure. A human study in 2017 found that beetroot juice helped lower levels of bad LDL cholesterol in people with uncontrolled blood pressure.

 Aid in Detoxification 

Beet powder benefits liver function, helping to keep it working efficiently so it can continue to keep your body free of toxins. Research showed that beetroot juice helped increase the levels of specific enzymes involved in detoxification.

 Support Digestive Health 

Beets are rich in fiber, providing 3.8 grams in each cup. Fiber moves through the intestines undigested, adding bulk to the stool to help support regularity and promote better digestive health.

 Increase Weight Loss 

Beets are loaded with fiber but low in calories, making them a great addition to the diet if you’re looking to shed a few extra pounds. When you eat fiber, it moves very slowly through the digestive tract to help keep you feeling full, which can help support satiety and promote weight loss.
