Beet is considered a super food.
Is a nutrient-dense vegetable, contains vitamin A, B, C, antioxidants such as beta-carotene, folic acid, magnesium, potassium, iron and fiber. It helps you stay young, vital, healthy and fit. The most amazing thing is that it is very high in nitrate, it becomes nitric oxide, which is a potent vasodilator, many use it in its synthetic version in the form of supplements, that famous C4.
The theme is that this vegetable helps to increase nitric oxide naturally in our body in an amazing way, great in cyclists and marathoners, of course in those who want to train intensely. Nitric oxide helps improve circulation to muscles, carries more oxygen and nutrients and therefore increases stamina, also increases energy because when more oxygen reaches the muscles, the mitochondria that are the energy generating factories in your body can work more efficient way; And also the more energy the mitochondria produce, the more grease oxidizes as “gasoline”. The beet is also great for lowering blood pressure.
One raw cup of chopped beet contains about 58 calories, 13 grams. Of carbohydrate, 4 gr. of fiber, and the rest is sugar, approximately 9 gr. of sugar. It contains about the same amount of sugar as a fruit, so we recommend eating it in the day if your goal is to “lose fat”. Eating to lower is not the same as eating to keep your shape.
