The healing power of beetroot powder

  1. Beetroot powder is an important new commonly used food product from the early third millennium. Beets are tasty and very healthy. In fact, they are so healthy that they are a superfood when you turn them into a powder by letting beets dry. Scientists warn that the powder is so packed with minerals that you should not eat too much of it. In healthy amounts it is good for the blood, blood pressure, gut and many more areas of the body.

Why dried vegetables?

  1. More and more shops, both on and off the Internet, have beetroot powder on their shelves. This is a relatively new product. Drying vegetables is very smart. In this way, the nutritional value is retained longer than with freezing, canning or potting. In Africa, vegetables are traditionally dried to have some food in more difficult times. In the West, our diet leaves us with a shortage of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants in our body. All kinds of diseases can arise in this way. By enriching our food with natural, whole supplements, we can easily ensure that we get enough natural vitamins. Reasons our western diet is impoverished:

Beetroot powder lowers blood pressure

  1. According to scientific research, beetroot powder and beetroot juice can lower blood pressure in normal doses. Beetroot contains a lot of nitrate, which is a diuretic. Potassium nitrate has long been used as a diuretic. Red beet powder contains a relatively large amount of nitrate. That is one of the reasons that beetroot powder lowers blood pressure. Water pills, which are diuretic pills, have the same effect; they are diuretic and therefore have a blood pressure lowering effect. Beetroot powder has something else, however, namely antioxidants in the form of vitamins, minerals and polyphenols. This can counteract the cause of high blood pressure, inflammation at the cellular level or low-grade inflammation that causes vasoconstriction by plaque on the artery walls. The researchers were particularly pleased with the low dose that achieves the blood pressure lowering effect; only 100 grams of beetroot juice per day is required. A study published in the United Kingdom in 2012 shows that there is no difference between fresh beet juice and beet powder. Beet powder was used in bread products and fresh beet juice. There were no differences in the effect against high blood pressure between the two groups of users. Beet juice also provides a concentration of vitamins and minerals, as does beetroot powder.

The combination with apple juice

  1. Another study shows that drinking 500 grams of beetroot juice or apple juice daily significantly lowers blood pressure. This Australian study was published in 2012. The rest of the diet was not modified. The experiment lasted for two weeks. That was enough to measure the positive effects of beetroot powder and apple juice on blood pressure. During these two weeks, they performed normal daily tasks. Incidentally, there are many more diuretic vegetables such as celery.

Beetroot good for the liver

  1. Beets have a liver-protecting effect, Hungarian researchers conclude in 2007. The scientists gave beetroot juice to rats that had been saddled with a liver problem. The livers were then analyzed and it turned out that the livers of rats that had been given beet juice were in better shape. Among other things, there was more zinc and copper in the livers of beet-treated rats and these minerals counteract oxidation. The scientists suspect that the increased presence of the two minerals helps the liver to recover more strongly after a problem.

Don't take too much beetroot powder

  1. Hungarian researchers saw in 2007 that there are so many minerals and vitamins in beets that beetroot powder may contain too many minerals if we take too much of it. The scientists see as positive points that the high mineral content can help with iron deficiency and irritable bowel syndrome. Then only little of it should be taken. The researchers sum up in their extract that beetroot powder contains betaine, betanine, vulgaxanthine, polyphenols, folic acid and various minerals and trace elements such as zinc, sodium, manganese, magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, copper, boron, aluminum and barium. The Hungarian researchers say that using too much beetroot powder can cause an accumulation or build-up of these metals in the liver.
