ABSOLUTELY PURE Heartbeet 60 Capsules
A potent source of antioxidants...
Beetroots are a rich source of carbohydrates and proteins and are also incredibly rich in a variety of vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients (such as magnesium, manganese, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, soluble fibre, calcium, iron, vitamins A, B and C, folate, carotenoids and flavonoids).
They are low in calories, almost entirely free of fats and have a very low glycaemic load (the sugar conversion process is extremely slow and allows for a stabilisation of sugar levels in the blood).
They are also extraordinarily rich in dietary nitrate, which not only leads to a reduction in oxygen uptake, increasing stamina and making exercise less tiring, but also acts as a weapon against infection and has a beneficial effect on blood pressure and the heart.
Several studies have shown that betaine (another nutrient found in beetroot) may protect against liver disease - particularly the build-up of fatty deposits in the liver caused by alcohol abuse, protein deficiency or diabetes, among other causes. Similarly, it can help detox the liver, having a knock-on effect for the bloodstream, by helping the body to better eliminate toxins.
Beetroot is naturally rich in alkaline elements and is a great addition to detox and cleansing programmes.
Montmorency cherries are nutrient-rich, containing particularly high levels of antioxidants, which fight free radicals in the body and help to prevent disease, as well as slow the ageing process. The latest research shows that these sour cherries have high ORAC (oxygen radical absorption capacity) values - you would have to eat more than 20 average portions of other fruit and vegetables to get the same amount of antioxidants as you get in one portion of Montmorency cherries. In particular, they are one of the few natural food sources of:
- the potent antioxidant, melatonin, which is thought to help maintain the body's circadian rhythms and improve sleep cycles
- the class of compounds, Superoxide Dismutases, which act as super scavengers of dangerous free radicals, destroying them throughout the body.
Montmorency cherries also contain potent phytonutrients, including anthocyanins (natural colourants) and other phenolic and flavanoid compounds. Anthocyanins have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, which help to maintain healthy joint function, mobility and flexibility, reduce inflammation and ease the pain of arthritis. They are also thought to lower urate levels in the body and are therefore often used as a remedy for gout.
These combination beetroot and cherry capsules are in natural food state for maximum absorption and utilisation by the body.
