In an ideal world, people would be able to enjoy all the benefits of beetroot by eating (or drinking the freshly-squeezed juice of) the fresh form of this nutritious root vegetable. However, for the vast majority of people this is simply not possible, particularly in the required quantities. Even juices available from the supermarket are not ideal, due to the pasteurisation process, which destroys many of the essential enzymes.CherryBeet take the hassle out of health by providing easy access to this superfood in a potent, convenient and easy-to-take capsule form. Everyone can benefit from taking this remarkable food-based supplement, particularly endurance athletes and those with cardiovascular, respiratory or metabolic disorders.
Antioxidants and nutrients:
Beetroot is a rich source of potent antioxidants (such as betanin, the pigment that gives beetroot its deep colour) and other essential nutrients, including magnesium, manganese, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, soluble fibre, calcium, iron, vitamins A, B and C, folic acid and betaine.
Heart health, blood pressure and cholesterol levels
Beetroot's carotenoids and flavonoids can help to reduce the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, which could lead to damaged artery walls and ultimately heart attacks and strokes. In particular beet fibre has been shown to have cholesterol-lowering capabilities. Similarly, betaine, a nutrient found in beetroot, lowers plasma homocysteine, a possible risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Beetroot has also been shown to lower blood pressure and thereby help to prevent cardiovascular problems. This is likely to be because the high content of dietary nitrate in beetroot produces a gas called nitric oxide in the blood, which widens blood vessels and lowers blood pressure.
While beetroot is certainly notable for its high nutrient content, it is its capacity to absorb and store exceptionally high levels of dietary nitrate that earns it the “super-root” title. Studies have demonstrated the positive effects that beetroot can have on exercise performance and muscle growth, as a result of this nutrient. For example, in a recent study conducted by Exeter University, scientists found that cyclists who drank a half-litre of beetroot juice several hours before setting off, were able to ride up to 16% longer than those who drank a placebo blackcurrant juice. As a result, beetroot is now actively used by many athletes as a dietary supplement, during times of extreme training when demands for energy and fast recovery are high.
Liver function (detoxification)
Several studies have shown that betaine (a nutrient found in high levels in beetroot) supports healthy liver function, particularly where there is a build-up of fatty deposits in the liver caused by alcohol abuse, protein deficiency or diabetes, among other causes. When the liver is functioning properly, fats are broken down efficiently, promoting natural weight loss, preventing fatigue and supporting body detoxification. Beetroot is also naturally rich in alkaline elements, making it a great addition to any cleanse and detox programme
Beetroot contains folic acid, which is essential for normal tissue growth. It is also therefore regarded as an important dietary inclusion for women planning a pregnancy.Beetroot contains the mineral silica. This helps the body to utilise calcium, which is important for musculo-skeletal health and is also required for healthy skin, hair, nails and bones.Beetroot is virtually fat-free and low in calories. Although it has a medium GI (Glycaemic Index) of 64, it has an extremely low GL (Glycaemic Load) of 2.9, which means it is converted into sugars very slowly and therefore helps to keep blood sugar levels stable.Beetroot helps to boost stamina and, due to its high iron content, helps with anaemia and fatigue syndrome - this is an organic form of iron (non-irritating). Young beetroot leaves are a better source of iron than spinach!Recent research has declared beetroot a “mood food”. It has been shown to stimulate the brain and contain the compound betaine, which enhances the production of the body’s natural mood-enhancer, serotonin.Beetroot can help to support the immune system, through its extraordinary range of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients (particularly antioxidants), which mean our bodies are better able to fight off infection. These nutrients help to stimulate the re-oxygenation of cells and the production of new blood cells.The cellulose content of the beet acts as a bulk residue, increasing peristalsis. Its regular use therefore prevents habitual constipation.Betaine in beetroot also helps individuals with hypochlorhydria, a condition causing abnormally low levels of stomach acid, by increasing stomach acidity.Beetroot supports many organs, including the key detoxification organs like the liver, gallbladder, spleen and kidneys.
This specially-formulated CherryBeet is a powerful food form supplement, which keeps its ingredients as close to their natural whole food state as possible.
Key benefits of Montmorency cherry
Montmorency cherry (or sour cherry) is a nutrient-rich fruit, which contains a wide range of beneficial natural compounds, in levels not often found in other fruits. As such, it has a number of health-promoting properties and is widely considered to be a superfruit.Antioxidants and nutrients Montmorency cherries are extraordinarily rich in antioxidants, which fight free radicals in the body and can therefore help to prevent disease and slow the ageing process. Research shows that Montmorency cherries have very high ORAC (oxygen radical absorption capacity) values - you would have to eat more than 20 average portions of other fruit and vegetables to get the same amount of antioxidants as you get in one portion of Montmorency cherries. In particular, they are one of the few natural food sources of:•the potent antioxidant melatonin, which helps to maintain the body's circadian rhythms and improve sleep cycles; and •the class of compounds, Superoxide Dismutases, which act as “super scavengers” of harmful free radicals, destroying them throughout the body. Anti-inflammatory agentsMontmorency cherries also contain potent phytonutrients, including anthocyanins (natural pigments) and other phenolic and flavanoid compounds. Anthocyanins have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, which may help to maintain healthy joint function, mobility and flexibility, reduce inflammation and ease the pain of arthritis. They are also thought to lower urate levels in the body and are therefore often used as a remedy for gout. Some other benefits of Montmorency cherries... They support healthy cardiovascular function. They offer protection against heart disease. They reduce the risk of diabetes and insulin resistance syndrome.They support memory and other brain functions.They are low in sugar, sodium and calories.They are an excellent source of beta carotene - they contain 19x the beta carotene of blueberries and strawberries!They are rich in vitamins C and E (two of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature)They are a good source of potassium, magnesium, iron, folate and dietary fibre.
