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/gall bladder 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 beet root.
Our Three-Beet Powder is made from three varieties of certified organic beets (Detroit Red, Chiogga and Golden) that were grown using biodynamic principles by family-owned and operated Markristo Farm in Hillsdale, NY. Because of its intense flavor and abundant nutrients, Three-Beet Powder 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 (along with a half-teaspoon of Ashitaba Powder) and a splash of maple syrup.
We recommend adding this powder to your empty Miron jar as soon as possible to increase its longevity.
