Why beetroot juice is so good for you.

Why beetroot juice is good for you

When I ordered Beet-It Beetroot juice to add to our online store I did so because of its health benefits. I had never tasted it before but understood that beetroot is an amazing vegetable high in vitamin C, fibre, potassium and folate. We include it in our meals weekly and add some to the Nutri-bullet but to have it readily available chilled in the fridge just seemed like a no brainer.

Beetroot juice is one of the richest dietary sources of antioxidants and naturally occurring nitrates. Nitrates are compounds which improve blood flow throughout the body – including the brain, heart, and muscles. These natural nitrates increase a molecule in the blood vessels called nitric oxide, which helps open up the vessels and allows more oxygen flow as well as lower blood pressure.

Nitric Oxide is the mechanism that thins blood, improved blood flow, and reduces blood pressure. It increases oxygen usage efficiency and boosts stamina and given that I have a family history of heart disease I’m now adding beetroot juice to my daily routine.

When I first opened the bottle it smelt like I was standing in the veggie garden harvesting beetroot. It smelt fresh and earthy and so smooth to taste, just like beetroot!

You should try it. It really is quite good. Click through to try: http://bit.ly/1qIHJsn
