Beetroots have been known for their nutritive value for thousands of years. This is because, they are rich in betaine and contain the antioxidant alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), which helps reduce homocysteine – a biomarker associated with cardiovascular diseases. Hence, boosting heart health. It also helps fights oxidative stress and inflammation that affect the body.

Beetroots are rich in betaine, an antioxidant, which helps fight oxidative stress in the liver and the heart. Researchers have suggested that its supplementation reduces homocysteine levels, which is a toxic and inflammatory compound in the blood connected with cardiovascular issues.Read less
What Does Science Say?
- The researchers demonstrated that all strengths of betaine significantly reduced homocysteine levels by 12-20% in both the second and sixth weeks of biomarker testing. Thus, implementing beetroot extract betaine may be beneficial in lowering elevated homocysteine, a toxic and inflammatory compound in the blood. In addition to this study, there are peer-reviewed publications that demonstrate betaine to be an antioxidant, which would be a protective nutrient for metabolically active cells including the liver hepatocytes and heart cardiomyocytes.
