A beetroot supplement loaded with benefits

Packed with essential nutrients, beetroots are filled with essential vitamins, minerals and plant compounds – and they are a great source of fibre, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C.  But not everyone is keen on the taste and NRF Health has introduced the supplement NRF Beetroot, which has numerous health benefits.

NRF Beetroot helps with improved blood flow, lowers blood pressure and increases exercise performance.  By adding NRF Beetroot to the diet with the nitrate content assists in lowering high blood pressure as the body converts nitrates to nitric oxide which helps to relax and dilate blood vessels which in turn improves blood circulation.  *Studies have shown that beetroot can significantly lower blood pressure by up to 4–10 mmHg over a period of only a few hours and may help reduce the risk of heart attacks, heart failure and strokes.

NRF Beetroot can also help with athletic performance by improving oxygen use and thus reducing exhaustion.   Interestingly, the nitrates in beetroot may also improve mental and cognitive function by promoting the dilation of blood vessels and this will help to increase blood flow to the brain.  Clinical Tests have shown it improves blood flow to the frontal lobe of the brain, an area associated with higher-level thinking such as decision making and working memory and may actually improve cognitive function and possibly reduce the risk of dementia. As beetroot is a good source of fibre, it is beneficial for digestive health, and may help to reduce a number of chronic health conditions like IBS.

An important component of all NRF Health supplements is the nutrient “Food Matrix” –  a unique, patented formula which comprises pure and certified raw ingredients and which make NRF Health supplements perfectly balanced and easy to digest.  Food Matrix  helps to improve various attributes of food by interacting with specific constituents and assisting with the processing of its nutrition and health benefits.  It assists with the oral processing and flavour perception of food and with digestion, so is effective in helping to combat food allergies and food intolerances.

NRF Beetroot retails for around R85 and is available from Dis-Chem and independent pharmacies.
