Thoughts/Opinion on Super Beets
Super Beets is supposed to give you the equivalent of 3 beets. I don’t see a problem over all with this supplement, especially if you don’t tend to like beets. In my opinion, if you do like beets, incorporate them more in your diet instead of purchasing this product, because it is always better to eat the actual food than take a supplement. Beets themselves are very good for you, besides their detoxification benefits they are also good sources of fiber, folate, manganese, copper, potassium, magnesium, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and Iron. They are high in nitrates which has been shown in research to help lower systolic blood pressure and improve blood flow to the brain. The betalains in beets are anti-inflammatory and beets could have cancer-fighting effects.
