What is the Health Benefit of Beets?

What is the health benefit of beets? Well actually beets are packed full of nutrition, but they have created a buzz in the marketing world for their positive impact on cardiovascular health. It is hard to beat when it comes to protecting your heart!

DO HEART ATTACKS SCARE YOU?

There is nothing more frightening than when your heart is racing too fast. I had experienced this when I was younger. I was drinking excessively and decided to add some party favors to the mix. My heart started pounding way too hard. Something was WRONG! I really thought I was a goner.

Unfortunately, I was stuck on a California mountain with no way to seek immediate help. Luckily I survived. It took a while for my heart to begin to feel normal again. I have long since changed my ways and feel very fortunate to be ALIVE!

Then I hit 50… I began to notice that my heart would race rapidly while hiking steep ravines. I would have to stop and try to get my heart to slow down with deep breathing.

My blood pressure readings started to go up every time I went in for a checkup. I stayed in denial for some time… I just did not want to go on blood pressure medication!

Finally, I had reached threshold. My vitals were BAD! I had out-of-control diabetes, high cholesterol, and soaring blood pressure. I was on the Paleo diet which worked for a moment, but it turned on me like a disloyal friend. I felt defeated… I became gripped by fear… I felt like my life was going to change forever… and not in a positive way.

BUT THEN… I clicked on a video about a whole-food plant-based diet. I had actually been a cheese-addicted vegetarian for 10 years when I was a lot younger, but VEGAN sounded a little too extreme… and when I was a waiter, I used to make fun of them with their obnoxious requests.

HOWEVER, I was JADED… I was game for anything if it could restore my health! I have now been on a plant-based diet for 2 years as I jot this down. I absolutely love how it makes me feel. My blood sugar is under control… my cholesterol is normal… my triglycerides are copacetic… my HEART DISEASE is in remission. I have normal blood pressure readings. It may take a while to clear out all of that nasty plaque out of my bloodstream, but it will be gone in due time.

BUT I thought this was about beets? Yes, however, it would be a crime if I didn’t share my experience on what I did to get my cardiovascular system back on track. Beets are awesome at providing life-saving nitric oxide, but if you don’t change the BIG PICTURE, sooner or later you are going to find yourself up that infamous creek without a paddle.

I include a lot of fabulous healthy fruits and vegetables in my diet Your body needs an assortment of these foods to obtain the right number of nutrients for optimal health. Beets are a SUPERFOOD, and you would be doing yourself a SOLID by eating more of them or drinking beet powders.

 

 

IS NITRIC OXIDE THE MIRACLE MOLECULE?

Dr. Louis Ignarro won a noble prize for his breakthrough discovery of the so-called “miracle molecule, nitric oxide. He was able to recognize its amazing health benefits. It is well-known throughout the medicinal community as being beneficial for the cardiovascular system.

Nitric oxide helps increase the rate of your blood flow. Your brain totally depends on an abundant supply of blood to properly function. Conditions like Alzheimer’s and dementia can be linked to a low supply of blood.

Nitric oxide is already been used with freshly born babies that have acute respiratory problems.

CAN NITRIC OXIDE HELP WITH COVID?

Massachusetts General Hospital is currently testing nitric oxide gas for treating COVID. Don’t confuse this with nitrous oxide (laughing gas) which is often used to knock you out at the dentist’s office... If you are stricken down in fear when you have your teeth worked on.

Dr. Ignarro believes in the effectiveness of nitric oxide in helping relieve inflammation and severe lung damage. This is how SARS-CoV-2 kills people. This the name of the virus which develops into a disease called COVID-19. The main issues which can lead to death are severe inflammation and blood clotting.

Since nitric oxide helps prevent blood from clotting, it just makes sense to use it to treat injured lungs. Dr. Ignarro also adds that nitric oxide can also help fight off some bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Emergency rooms are already using it to treat acute respiratory distress syndrome.

 

 

Nitric oxide is a colorless gas that your body creates naturally that dilates blood vessels and ramps up the flow of oxygen. Babies with respiratory issues are often saved when fed nitric oxide gas. Your heart and lungs work in unison to keep you alive. Healthy blood flow is everything and it puzzles me how so many people pay little regard to maintain optimal heart and lung functioning.

 

 

 

DO YOU LIKE EATING BEETS?

When I was still a young lad, my brother would eat beets at my Grandmother Leist’s house. My mother didn’t serve them. The smell completely turned me off. I don’t recall seeing them served at school either. I have waited tables in over 20 restaurants and beets were never on the menu at any of those establishments.

They do have a very strong taste. Some people like them. Russians are fond of them. It is the main ingredient in borscht. I have never even seen a Russian restaurant in my neck of the woods, so I have never encountered borscht.

However, I became a huge follower of Fit for Life in the early 90s, and I completely changed how I viewed and consumed food. This was a diet that focused on food combining which founded by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond. It was primarily a vegetarian way of eating, but a lot of the recipes included variations with meat. Their main spill was keeping starches separate from proteins, and consuming a high ratio of water content food. They also suggested eating fruit solo.

Anyway, a long story short, I began to eat lots of healthy food. It was during this time that I started juicing. If you want to quickly AMP yourself up, juice some super fruits and power veggies. You will feel its energizing goodness spread throughout your body immediately,

I went out and bought beets. I would add them to carrots or apples, and low and behold, I avoided the gnarly beet flavor. To this day, I have never cooked with beets or eaten one raw. Instead of juicing now, I throw everything in a ninja and chop up the whole vegetable or fruit because it is better for you to consume the food in its whole fibrous form.

You can also purchase beet powders to mix in your smoothies or any healthy ninja blender-type concoction.

It is healthier to blend the whole food. The sum is always better than the individual parts.

 

 

LET’S HAVE A HEART TO HEART TALK!

Beets are chocked full of NITRATES. These nitrates convert into nitric oxide which is extremely beneficial for your heart’s health. Nitrates have a bad rap because of their association with hot dogs and other cured meats. When it comes to nutrition, it is best to get it all from its original source… how NATURE designed it. Nitrates from whole food are GOOD for you. Nitrates added to pig flesh (as a preservative) are going to cause more harm than good. You can’t fool Mother Nature.

Nitric Oxide helps relax and dilate your blood vessels. This helps open up your circulation and lower blood pressure. It is as simple as that. Circulation is so vital for optimum health. It is amazing how counterproductive most people are when it comes to our food choices. This is why heart disease is the number one killer of the human race.

CONCERNING YOUR BRAIN… IT’S THE SMART THING TO DO!

Well, we just learned how beets affect your blood vessels. Your brain needs a constant flow of oxygen and blood to keep it healthy. Cognitive functions may decline with age and you can guarantee that a reduction in oxygen and blood flow contributes to conditions such as dementia and Alzheimers’.

Beets are known to be good for your frontal lobes. This improved blood flow helps you maintain a high level of cognition which helps your think on your feet and remember those names.

 

THE INFLAMMATION EFFECT!

Inflammation is the root of all evil… at least in your body. Just about every medical condition can be linked to an inflammation issue. If you follow a normal western diet, I got bad news for you... chances are you have some level of inflammation. It is no BIG SECRET, just take a look around at all the overweight people and the constant rising health crisis.

It is a simple fix… it really is. SIMPLE, though not easy. It takes dedication and discovering the right way to eat (if you want to stop inflammation and live as healthy as you can be). It is a choice.

Fruits, vegetables, tubers, seeds, grains, and herbs do not contribute to inflammation. If you eat only from these food groups (without drowning them in oil), your chronic inflammation will fade away. Beets go one step further...

They help battle inflammation. By the way, you do need small amounts of inflammation. It is part of your immune system response. It is part of the healing process. Chronic inflammation is the real issue here. Beets contain an amino acid called betaine which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory powers.

ENERGY BOOST… HOW DO YOU LIVE WITHOUT IT!

Beets help you step up your GAME!. I Discovered this early on when I added beets to my juicer. At times, I felt so much energy that I could hardly contain myself. If you consume a lot of raw food, you will begin to notice how good it makes you feel inside. Beets help take it to the next level.

Beets help your blood flow faster and by doing so it feeds your muscles more oxygen during workouts. The nitric oxide effect enables endurance levels to bolster. Nitric oxide levels from beets peak two to three hours after consumption of beet juice or powdered formulas, So it is best to plan your workouts during this time frame.

BECAUSE SO MUCH IS RIDING ON YOUR DIGESTION!

Beets are packed with FIBER. When it comes to digestive health, FIBER IS KING. Fiber bypasses digestion and heads straight for your colon where it performs its magic. It adds nourishment to your healthy gut bacteria and bulks up your stool. Fiber helps keeps you REGULAR and helps clean out toxins and old food. You don’t want anything hanging out too long in there. Eating beets add a little color to your waste… If you know what I mean (no worries… this is just the beets saying HELLO).

Keeping your digestion regular helps avoid nasty conditions like diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel syndrome, and constipation. Diverticulitis is particularly heinous. A friend of mine had that and they put a colostomy bag on him for a year while it healed. He wasn’t able to do a number 2 for a year! That would really suck!

Fiber also benefits WEIGHT LOSS. Eating fibrous food helps you feel full and less prone to overeat. Eating carbohydrate food without fiber causes me to overeat When I start out with raw fibrous foods, I feel full, so I tend not to eat as much. I have noticed lately that I have been eating smaller and smaller meals. I just feel satisfied and full of energy.

DESIGNED FOR DETOXIFICATION!

Your liver has a very important job to do. Its main duty is filtering blood, making proteins for blood clotting, detoxing chemicals, and helping drugs metabolize in your body.

Your liver helps your body process unhealthy substances like alcohol. Moderation of booze won’t damage your liver, but excessive drinking destroys it. Your liver is trying to help you live healthy by eliminating toxins. It can only do so much before it throws in the towel.

Beets are excellent for the detoxification process. It helps clean your liver and keep it functional. Beet juice may help activate liver enzymes and increase bile which aids in the digestive process. Beets contain pigments known as betalains. These are loaded with antioxidants that help reduce inflammation and fight off oxidative stress in your liver.

Beets are also good for your skin. No, you don’t have to rub a beet ointment on your body… when you take good care of your insides, you can expect to see the effects reflected on your skin.

NUTRIENTS AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE!

  • VITAMIN A Speaking of eyes, beets contain vitamin A which is excellent for eye health. It is also great for your skin.
  • NITRATES This converts into nitric oxide which is wonderful for your cardiovascular system.
  • IRON Iron is beneficial for transporting oxygen throughout your bloodstream.
  • VITAMIN C Immune system support, wound healing and a safeguard from infection are benefits from vitamin C.
  • FOLIC ACID Beets are loaded with folic acid which helps your body produce more cells and stabilizes your DNA.
  • POTASSIUM Do you want to keep your nervous system working properly… potassium helps transmit nerve impulses.
  • FIBER You need fiber to maintain a healthy digestive system.
  • CALCIUM Most everyone knows that calcium helps you retain strong bones.
  • PROTEIN A good source of plant-based protein which is an essential building block for your body.
  • BETALAIN A powerful antioxidant that protects your cells.

Just beet it!

 

 

 

 

 

BEETS HISTORICALLY SPEAKING!

 

Beets have been hanging around kitchens worldwide for a very long time. An ancient text mentioned that beets were being cultivated in the Hanging Gardens of Babylon in 800 BC. Ancient Greeks and Romans (like peas and carrots) loved them so much that they learned how to grow them in the off season (under the scorching summer sun).

Remember Pompeii? It was pummeled by volcanic rocks (tephra) and finally submerged in 19 feet of ash… OUCH! After excavating the site, they uncovered a brothel called Lupanare. The walls were adorned with erotic imagery. Among the ancient pornography were depictions of beets on the artistic walls. They viewed beets as an aphrodisiac.

The Greek love goddess, Aphrodite, was said to eat beets to make her more appealing. There’s a reason they felt this way about beets. Beets contain tryptophan and betaine which help bolster feelings of well-being. Beets are also high in boron which is a trace mineral that may help boost bodily hormonal levels.

Beets were more parsnip-shaped in the earliest days of cultivation. Basically, it resembled a carrot with a more bulbous top then tapering down to the end. They made their way up to northern Europe and eventually became a staple within the Slavic world.

 

 

CHOICES… SO MANY CHOICES!

How do you like your beets?… If you do. Originally people only ate the green leaves and stalks. It was consumed like its cousin, Chard. It would be many years before beets bulked out to their modern bulbous form. Beets have a very earthy taste because it contains a substance called geosmin (this is what causes the fresh soil scent after a spring rain shower). I do not like the flavor at all… so I have found other means to get my beet on.

People either love them or abhor them. It is simple as that. American presidents have felt the same way. Thomas Jefferson planted them at his Monticello plantation. President Obama and his wife Michelle didn’t want them planted in the white house garden (and she is a huge advocate of healthy eating!)… and George Bush just didn’t want to eat broccoli.

Well, basically there are 5 types of beets that we humans consume.

  • Detroit Dark Red... the dark purplish-red beet we are most familiar with.
  • Chiogga… These beets resembled the ole’ barber pole with red and white stripes
  • Formanova… this one grows in a fat cylinder shape
  • Lutz Green Leaf… the largest of the beet family
  • Golden… have a more carrot-shaped root

Did you know that some beets are used in sugar production? 20 percent of the world’s sugar production comes from sugar beets! You can chop up young sugar beets and throw them into a salad for consumption if you prefer. But, mature sugar beets have to be cooked to soften them up for consumption. However, they are not commonly consumed due to their bland sweet flavor.

Beets are also used as livestock fodder. Mangel beets are high in sugar and drought resistant and often used to feed farm animals. People can also eat this kind of beet if they so choose. I remember as a rowdy teen, a bunch of us thought it would be a good idea to roast some fodder corn. It was god awful!

 

 

 

WHO SHOULD AVOID BEETS?

It appears that if you suffer from kidney problems, beets may not be the best thing for you. Beets are rich in potassium (which is a good thing for most of us). Unhealthy kidneys can’t process excess potassium. It could lead to a heart attack. The body sure is fickle when it comes to food.

Beets are also high in oxalates. This is a naturally occurring organic compound that binds itself to minerals. Too much of it can lead to kidney stones. Don’t eat beets all day long!

And… some people are just allergic, though quite rare. It is not as common as in strawberries. If eating beets makes you vomit (I am not referring to the yucky taste), gives you a bad case of diarrhea, or you find yourself breaking out in hives then you’re allergic.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

IS IT SAFE FOR DIABETICS TO EAT BEETS? Beets actually are an excellent food choice for diabetics. They contain lipoic acid. This is an antioxidant that helps repair nerve damage. Diabetics can develop neuropathy if their sugars get out of control.

Beets contain natural sugar, but it doesn’t usually cause your blood to spike. If you juice beets, you are leaving the fiber behind in the pulp. Drinking straight-up fruit or vegetable juice will more than likely spike your blood. It is always better to use whole fruits or vegetables for optimal health benefits. Try using a Ninja or Vitamix. Just add a little filter watered to make it easier to drink.

So what is better: raw beets, beet powders, or beet juice? First of all, as I mentioned above, consuming food in its whole form trumps juice every time. Granted, beet juice is really good for you. It is not a bad thing (unless you have to control your sugar intake).

As far as supplements, it depends. A really high-quality beet supplement would include a highly concentrated extract with the nutritional equivalent of many beets. Formulations may also include other added nutritional components for better absorption and also including more health benefits.

WILL BEETS BOOST MY SEX DRIVE? They sure thought so in Pompeii. But, probably not, however, it helps creates nitric oxide in your body which helps increase your blood flow. This in turn is beneficial for one’s sexual performance.

IS IT OKAY TO EAT BEETS RAW? Of course. In fact, I just blended up some raw beet with ginger and some super-premium beet powder. The good thing about drinking beets is that I can gulp them down before I notice the taste. Some people like the taste and I agree with the Obamas and don’t relish the flavor, but I desire the nutritional qualities.

HOW MUCH BEET JUICE OR SUPPLEMENTS SHOULD YOU TAKE BEFORE A WORKOUT? Chances are the supplement package will offer a recommendation for their particular formulation. You can also drink up to 16 ounces of beet juice. Don’t overdue beets due to the oxalates.

Try blending some beets or drink a beet powder formulation before working out!

TIPS FOR BUYING AND STORING FRESH BEETS

First, choose a store that is known for quality produce, or hit up a farmer’s market for some fresh organic beets. Organic is always a better option if you can afford it. Inspect the beets for any blemishes. If they are too soft, they are not fresh. Smaller beets won’t be as hard as large beets. It is more difficult to cut through a huge beet.

You can store beets for a while in your fridge. I have had some in there for a month and they have gotten soft. They have yet to get any mold on them. I kind of just forgot about them (until I began writing this post…lol)… however, I have been using beet powders on an ongoing basis.

If you buy canned beets, read the sodium content before buying. Avoid sodium as much as you can. I only use quality Himalayan salt that still has its natural mineral content still intact. Beets also come pickled and frozen. You can freeze items longer with a freeze dryer (to avoid freezer burns).

One of these days I am going to try pickling and canning. I have too much on my plate at the moment!

 

 

 

 

WHERE CAN YOU PURCHASE BEET POWDERS?

When purchasing nutritional supplements, it benefits you in the long run if you know a little about the company that distributes them and how they are manufactured. The more information that I can find about a company helps build a level of trust. It is important to know how they obtain their raw materials. Are they from a country that doesn’t place a high value on the purity of their products or raw goods?

I have included some key details on the chosen companies below. Some provide more details than others. All of these businesses have been around for at least 20 years, so they are doing something right... one would assume.

Just take note that I am an affiliate for each link below. Most companies push their goods this way. You can juice your own beets at home… but it takes a lot of work and it’s quite messy. HAPPY SHOPPING!

Nitro Factor is a remarkable SUPERFOOD that is wonderful for your cardiovascular system. As we age, we start to suffer from endothelium dysfunction. In laymen’s terms, this means that the cells that make up the interior lining of your arteries do not produce nitric oxide like they used to.

When your body stops making nitric oxide, you are left predisposed to the hardening of your arteries… plaquing! Your arteries are now compromised. So what is popular nowadays for boosting nitric oxide? You got it! BEETS.

What makes NITRO FACTOR special when compared to other beetroot products in the marketplace? First of all, it is extremely effective and affordable.
