Beetroot Powder, Organic
Organic beetroot powder which is rich in both nitrates and antioxidants. Nitrates help to relax the smooth muscles that encircle veins and arteries helping to dilate the blood vessels and promote healthy blood flow and circulation – this can help to lower blood pressure, promote healthy menstrual flow, aid circulatory issues and help with certain heart conditions although professional advice is recommended for the latter.
Benefits: Organic beetroot powder has anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in antioxidants, helping the body to alleviate the stress caused by free radicals. It is also rich in vitamin C and folates and aids wound healing. Folic acid is vital for the production of healthy red blood cells and cellular regeneration, for this reason it is very beneficial after blood loss, either through injury, surgery or menstruation.
Beetroot powder contains micronutrients including manganese, iron and potassium, and is a great source of fibre. It is also beneficial for cardiovascular fitness, supplying oxygen to your muscles during periods of activity or exercise.
How to use: Organic beetroot powder has many culinary uses providing both wonderful nutritional benefits and a vibrant natural colouring. It pairs well with cacao as a hot chocolate, smoothie or even in a cake as a healthy 'red velvet' option. Paired with the benefits of cacao powder, a rich warming red velvet hot chocolate can be wonderfully soothing and beneficial during your menstrual cycle. It pairs well with citrus to lift the earthy flavour, rose flavour notes to compliment the colour in cakes and creams, and works well with deep vibrant cherries and raspberries in smoothies. It colours gnocchi, homemade pasta and smoothie bowls vibrantly, and can add a rose-coloured tint to homemade beauty products like lip balms.
