Red beet..a true friend to the heart

The German Health Center said that red beet is a true friend of the heart;

As it protects against heart attacks.

The center explained that red beetroot is rich in betaine, which has the ability to reduce levels of the toxic amino acid homocysteine, and in this way protects betaine from cardiovascular diseases.

The red beet contains nitrates, which are converted into nitrites in the body, which stimulate the production of nitric oxide in the blood, which leads to the widening of blood vessels and a decrease in blood pressure as a result, which prevents a heart attack or stroke.

Beetroot is also rich in folic acid, which reduces the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Betaine also stimulates the function of liver cells and strengthens the gallbladder, thus helping to maintain the health of the liver and bile ducts.

In addition, betaine is also known as “trimethylglycine” (TMG) and is considered a “mood enhancer”;

It can increase the level of serotonin, known as the happiness hormone.
