Beets: Evidence-Based Health Benefits

Beets have always been and remain one of the world’s most underutilized ‘super foods’ with a number of powerful, evidence-based health benefits.

  • Beet’s Blood Vessel Dilating Properties

A 2008 study published in the journal Hypertension found that beets contain pharmacologically significant quantities of blood vessel dilating nitrate.

 

  • Beet Back Muscle Fatigue

In 2009, a study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that dietary nitrate supplementation in the form of beetroot juice reduced the oxygen cost of submaximal exercise and enhanced the tolerance to high-intensity exercise.

 

  • Beet Back Infections
    Consider that beets ‘live’ in the dirt, a place full of microbes which love a free meal. This means that nature has equipped the plant with natural defenses. No wonder that beet has been found to fight off the following infectious organisms:
  • Beet pectin has been found to inhibit the synthesis of types A and B staphylococcal enterotoxins.
  • Beet extract has been found to reduce influenza A infectivity and lethality.
  • Beet root has been found capable of inhibiting Epstein-Barr virus associated tumor formation.
