We all know what beets are, you can see them in your salad, at the whole foods store, at every pizza shop and diner, but what you might not know is that this modest root vegetable is known to be a powerful superfood full of vitamins, potassium, and antioxidants, to support health across the entire body.
You don’t like beets? No worries!
Beet powder is a highly concentrated nutrient-rich form that includes all the same bonuses.
Beet powder dosage
Two to four teaspoons per day is an excellent amount to include in your daily routine but if you’re new to beets, in general, you can start with a lower dosage of one teaspoon.
