Nitric oxide is a vasodilator that relaxes and widens blood vessels. Betaine is a nutrient made from the B-complex vitamin choline.  Betaine is essential for many cell functions and protects against oxidative stress which can damage cells. Betalains give beets their rich red color. It is a phytonutrient produced by plants that has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Simple and delicious ways to enjoy beets

Choose beets that are heavy for their size with fresh, unwilted green leafy tops still attached. The leafy green tops are also incredibly tasty and nutritious. They are a rich source of folate and mineral such as calcium and iron. Beet greens are wonderful and can be cooked and enjoyed like spinach-sauteed in olive oil with seasoning of choice as a side dish, tossed into a salad or mixed with pasta. Beets are amazingly versatile and are fabulous boiled, juiced, roasted, steamed or pickled. They can be bought precooked and canned for convenience. Grab a glass. Beet juice can be a good way to kick up the beets if you are using them for a brain boost or athletic enhancement. Fresh beetroot juice is best. Why not give Certified Organic Beetroot Juice a try?  There is no sugar added and contains only two ingredients. Beetroot powder is an option to get an energy burst that can be mixed in cold water, juice or beverage of your choice. Roasting beets bring out their earthy-sweet goodness. Consider slicing them thin and dry them in the oven to make crunchy beet chips. When purchasing, avoid beet chips fried in oil and loaded with salt. Check the ingredients on things like beet crackers or thins. Sometimes, the only beet they contain comes from a sprinkling of beet powder. Beets are tasty raw in salads and slaws. Grated beets make a flavorful and colorful addition to toss salads and coleslaw. Beets blended with Greek yogurt or hummus makes a pink dip that is lively, enjoyable and healthy.
