Beets, called red carrots in Europe, are one of the undisputed stars of the vegetable world. Research has identified three main medical uses for the common beet. The first is as a liver/gallbladder tonic because of its abundance of betaine, a phytochemical that thins the bile, thereby allowing for better bile flow. Beets have also been traditionally used to treat anemia, especially in children, because of their iron content. And, finally, recent studies have shown that beet powder is as effective a blood-pressure medicine as conventional treatments, most likely because of the presence of nitric-oxide precursors found in the beetroot.
We use three varieties of beets (Detroit Red, Chiogga and Golden) to make our Three-Beet Powder. Because of its intense flavor and abundant nutrients, it can be used in any dish, from salads to desserts (especially with its traditional complement, chocolate).
Our favorite way to use Dr. Cowan’s Garden Three-Beet Powder is a teaspoon added to yogurt and a splash of maple syrup.
Inside this jar are approximately 50 servings!
