  • Super Beets Anyone?

    Anyone try or regularly drink "Super Beets". It's supposed to promote nitric oxide, improve stamina and energy and increase circulation. Gimmick of the month or is there anything really good about it....or bad?

    Thanks!

    Plain old beets have a huge sugar content and lots of fiber. No such thing as super beets.

      "Superbeets" is a brand name for a food supplement which makes all sorts of claims about it's health benefits. Little evidence that it is any better than eating beets or drinking regular beet juice. It's main claim is to reduce blood pressure, which may not be a good thing for people with higher levels of SCI/D.

      Here is some information about the possible benefits of beets and beet juice:

        I like beet juice, but you gotta be careful. That stuff stains, I ruined a pretty nice shirt.

        To elaborate on KLDs point, no nutritional supplement will ever be “proven” better than anything because nutritional supplements are not regulated whatsoever (thanks Mel Gibson...)

        I can make a supplement today called Dr Funks miracle beet sprout tea. I can make all kinds of claims like “people say this and that” and “it cures cancer and heart disease” so long as I put the disclaimer “these statements not evaluated by the FDA” no one can say squat to me. No one regulates what I’m putting in my little capsules whatsoever. So long as I don’t knowingly put something poisonous in there I’m good to go. I don’t even have to put any beets or any roots in it! I could just crush up leaf debris from my back yard and put it in those capsules and market it as the next miracle snake oil cure.

          Beets are a regular on our menu. I love pickled beets, Harvard beets, Yale beets, and pickled eggs made by soaking them in the leftover pickled beet juice. The beet juice is also good for coloring Easter eggs.

            A brilliant food and so easy to grow. I can eat truckloads of the stuff if given half a chance.
