Beetroot (Beta vulgaris)

Posted by Bio-First Team on

Who would have thought the humble Beetroot may improve athletic performance and even reduce muscle ache from some types of exercise! 

Not only that, Beetroot is a powerful health-promoting root veggie rich in essential nutrients including folate and iron. 

Hardly surprising when you consider its rich dark ruby purple colour which as we know is always a good indicator of special benefits in foods.

But that’s not all 

The Beetroot exercise boost comes from increasing nitric oxide availability, which also provides 

a natural defence against respiratory illness. 

The unique colour pigments in Beetroot exert a range of healthy effects, especially in the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory departments. 

Beetroot, a superfood bar none:

  • Naturally sweet and not too acidic
  • A health-promoting functional food
  • Highly nutritious and bioactive
  • Rich in dietary nitrate 
  • Great for respiratory function and protection
