AIM RediBeets® - beets & juicing details
A diet without fresh, raw vegetables is deficient. This is because when raw vegetables are eaten instead of juices, a large amount is used as energy during the digestion and absorption processes. Juices are ingested
and assimilated within 15 minutes and this enables the nutrients to be used almost in their entirety for the nourishment of the cells.
Whole body health results when all body systems are in balance. No single body system is targeted—we make choices that keep all systems toxin-free and that supply all systems with optimum nutrition. The result is total wellness: waking up every day feeling great! AIM RediBeets® is one of three all-natural, vegetable juice powder concentrates that make up the AIM Garden Trio®. RediBeets helps provide the daily nutrition you need to develop a
strong foundation for your good health.
The value of beets
One cup of raw beets contains phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and potassium as well as vitamin A, niacin, folic acid, and biotin. When these nutrients are captured in a juicing process, they remain in a form that is much easier to assimilate than synthetic nutrients. The iron in beet juice, in particular, is noted for being more easily assimilated than other forms of iron supplements.
Potassium, in particular, is essential for all cellular functions. Along with sodium, it regulates water balance and acidity-alkalinity balance in the blood and tissues. It is often depleted with aging, in degenerative disorders, and with a highly refined diet that is high in sugar.
Beetroots contain nutrients that help with blood pressure reduction, heart disease prevention, endurance, and brain function. A study from the University of Exeter found that beets boost athlete performance and stamina and allow people to exercise for up to 16 percent longer. For brain health, beets assist by improving blood flow to the brain. Poor blood flow to the brain has been linked to the onset of dementia.
Historically, beetroots have been known to have medicinal properties, specifically anti-hepatotoxic effects; that is, the ability to counter damaging effects on the liver. For the past three or four centuries, it has been thought to be beneficial for the detoxification of the liver, and it was used for the treatment of hepatitis. The exact mechanism by which beets support the liver remains unknown; however, theories suggest that they
effectively limit fat deposits in the liver, probably because of their high concentration of betaine.
Betaine is often referred to as the lipotropic factor because of this ability to help the liver process fats. Betaine also plays a role in reducing homocysteine. High levels of homocysteine are associated with cardiovascular disease, so betaine is thought to support cardiovascular health.
Beets also contain biochanin A, a potential cancer-fighting agent.
The value of fresh fruits and vegetables
Fresh fruits and vegetables provide fiber and nutrients that are necessary for digestive health, including phytochemicals and enzymes. Phytochemicals are simply plant chemicals that are thought to be essential to health. They have been found by the American Dietetic Association to be beneficial in at least four of the leading causes of death—cardiac disease, diabetes, hypertension, and cancer.
Enzymes are essential for the thousands of chemical reactions that occur throughout the body—the production of energy at the cellular level, the facilitation of digestion, the absorption of digested nutrients, and the rebuilding and replenishing of all that the body requires for metabolism to occur. Although enzymes are destroyed in the cooking process, they are present in raw fruits and vegetables, and juicing is the best way to ensure that
we ingest them.
