Provides Naturally Occurring Betaine to Help Support Various Body Systems:
Beet greens are a source of riboflavin, iron, vitamins A and C, and beta-carotenes. Both the tops and the root of the beet contain folic acid, a vitamin essential for maintenance and repair of the gastrointestinal tract. Folic acid deficiencies can result in neural tube defects in infants.
Both beet tops and tubers have potassium, which helps balance the body when the sodium intake is high. Adequate potassium is also needed for proper muscle functioning and blood pressure control. Betaine, found in beets, is a substance recognized for its role in cardiovascular and liver health.
How Betafood Keeps You Healthy?
Beet fiber modulates insulin production. The beet tubers in Betafood contain a particular type of soluble fiber called pectin, which slows the absorption of food into the bloodstream from the small intestine. This modulates blood-sugar levels and the release of insulin from the pancreas.
Beets provide betaine. Betaine is produced naturally in the body by the oxidation of choline. In the past, betaine was assumed to be an unimportant byproduct of choline metabolism. Now, however, betaine is recognized as an important participant in critical body functions. Some scientists suggest that it is important for humans to get betaine from dietary sources, such as Betafood.
Beets may contribute to cardiovascular health. Elevated homocysteine levels have been found in up to 40 percent of people with cardiovascular conditions. It is known that nutrients can help normalize homocysteine levels through the conversion of homocysteine to the amino acid methionine. These nutrients include betaine, its precursor choline, folic acid, and vitamins B6 and B12.
Beets may maintain normal liver function. In the presence of tissue-damaging alcohol, betaine may maintain normal liver metabolism function. It is thought that this occurs by increasing an alternate biochemical pathway by which the conversion of homocysteine to methionine occurs.
