This supplement is a mix of potent antioxidants and vitamins, mineral and nutrients, all included in an easy-to-take capsule form. It is a supplement which will boost your body's immunity and will stimulate red cell production through the high concentrations of contained iron. To enjoy the full benefits of these natural sources of nutrients it is recommended to consume them in big quantities and for long periods of time. However, for the majority of people this is simply not possible, both because of the price and also the hassle this would become. The juices available on the market have their minuses as well — during the processing process they loose important enzymes and nutrients. We are taking care of all these aspects with our new and potent formula CherryBeet so that everyone can benefit the remarkable properties of these natural foods in a potent, convenient and easy-to-take capsule form.
Beetroot (lat. Beta vulgaris) is a nutritious vegetable widely recognized for its source of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Being a vegetable which grows in the soil it is very susceptible to absorbing nitrates and growth stimulants the modern agriculture is so widely dependant on these days. It is important to have a reliable source of beetroot if you decide to adopt this vegetable in your menu
The absorption of the beetroot capsules is much higher than the absorption from the usual vegetable. The iron is a mineral found in the beetroot but which also can damage your teeth if taken regularly. Our coated capsules will prevent the iron from the beetroot to get in contact with your teeth. This supplement is suitable during the pregnancy — Pregnant women are recommended to increase their iron intake, as it stimulates the production of red blood cells and the beetroot extracts are more than welcome in this situation. It is interesting to know also that the young beetroot leaves are much more richer in iron than the spinach leaves.
Antioxidants are also an important reason why beetroot has been chosen for this formula — it has a high concentration of Betacyanin and Anthocyanin, both antioxidants which also make the red colour of this vegetable. Also, it is an important source of minerals such as Magnesium, Manganese, Sodium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Calcium, Iron, soluble fibre, and vitamins (A, B, C, Folic acid, carotenoids, flavonoids and Betaine).
Beetrot used by athletes
Beetroot is also a low caloric source of natural fibre, beneficial for our gastrointestinal tract and colon support. It is a great addition for any cleansing or detox programmes. Athletes are using beetroot extracts as source of minerals, nutrients and during the extensive training it proves to be a high source of energy and it helps body recovery after extensive training. They are almost entirely free of fats and have a low glycaemic load (the sugar conversion process is extremely slow and allows for a stabilisation of sugar levels in the blood). The medium Glycaemic Index is 64 with and extremely low Glycaemic Load of 2.9. They are also very rich in dietary nitrate which in turn leads to a reduction of oxygen uptake, increasing stamina and making exercise less tiring, same time acting against infection and has a beneficial effect on blood pressure and heart.
The positive effects of beetroot on sporting performance has been demonstrated through studies on physical activity and muscular growth. In a study conducted in 2009 by Exeter University scientists found the cyclists who drank half-litre of beetroot juice for 6 consecutive days before setting off were able to ride up to 16% longer than those who drank placebo juice 1.
Betaine, another component found in the beetroot has been proven to protect against liver disease, particularly against the build-up of fatty deposits in the liver caused by alcohol abuse, protein deficiency or diabetes by helping the body to eliminate the toxins. It is also considered to influence mood and has been shown to stimulate the brain and enhance the natural body mood-enhancer — serotonin. Betaine is also increasing in hypochlorhydria, a condition in which individuals suffer of a low stomach acid levels.
Beetroot and the cardiovascular function
The mechanism though which the beetroot is decreasing the risk of cardiovascular disease is by reducing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol which could lead to arterial damage and eventually heart attacks and strokes. Beetroot fibre has been shown to have cholesterol-lowering capabilities. Betaine is lowering the plasma homocysteine which is considered to be a possible risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
Due to the high content of dietary nitrate, called nitric oxide in the blood, which widens blood vessels, it is considered that the beetroot can help with the blood pressure control.
Montmorency cherries are rich in nutrients and particularly in antioxidants which fight free radicals in the body and help to prevent disease as well and slowing the ageing process. The latest research shows that these sour cherries have a high oxygen radical absorption capacity (ORAC) values. It has been calculated that the concentration of antioxidants in these cherries is so high that it would take more than 20 portions of other fruits and vegetable to reach the same concentration of antioxidants that you can get for one portion of Montmorency cherry. Apart from this, it is one of the few natural foods to contain:
Among the most important effects of Montmorency cherry on the human body are:
