Beet Root Powder
HEALTH BENEFITS PROVIDED BY BEETROOT
Because nitrates have been connected to lowered blood pressure, consumers of beetroot have also seen benefits athletically and mentally. The increase of blood flow in the body can also increase the amount of oxygen traveling to the muscles and brain, allowing for enhanced endurance during physical exertion and assistance with cognition and memory. These benefits are best seen under conditions of high-intensity exercise, making supplementation a popular choice among motivated athletes.
Beets are also high in antioxidants, particularly Alpha Lipoic Acid, which are integral to fighting harmful free radicals in the body. The presence of Choline may also help with sleep and concentration. Choline also plays an important role in maintaining the structure of cellular membranes, the reduction of muscle inflammation and the transmission of nerve impulses. As with all supplements, Beetroot powder should not be supplemented to treat or prevent any illness.

CONCENTRATION OF BEETROOT
This powder has an intense, pinkish color and what is described as a very mild and earthy flavor. It is easily soluble in water or juice and contains no additives.
Much like turmeric,this powder has the ability to stain both fabrics and surfaces. Please use care when opening. Should you need to wash out a stain, acting quickly is important. Pre-treating the garment or surface with a white vinegar solution or baking soda is recommended.
Beet root powder retains water easily and may have a clumpy texture; this is normal and does not affect the quality of the supplement.
BEETROOT SIDE EFFECTS
Provided that dosages are adhered to, beetroot powder is safe to consume with little to no side effects. Beets have been previously linked to low calcium levels and potential kidney damage. If either of these two are of concern, discuss supplementation with a doctor. No data has been recorded regarding use during nursing or pregnancy; although beetroot has been determined likely safe, women should also speak with a physician before use.
The natural bright pigment in beets may cause stool to turn red for a few days after consumption-- this is a common and harmless side effect. Under no circumstances should beetroot powder be used as a supplement for blood pressure medication without the monitoring and approval of a certified physician.
