It is well known in many cultures that fermented foods are rich in beneficial bacteria, so by consuming them we are adding probiotics, and enzymes to our overall intestinal flora. This increases the health of the gut microbiome, and digestive system, while enhancing the immune system.

Fermenting nutritional material makes it much more easily digested having been broken down by the process, thus increasing the bioavailability of vitamins, and minerals contributing to a greater ability to utilize it. Additionally, by boosting the beneficial bacteria in the GI tract, we are promoting their ability to manufacture B vitamins and synthesize vitamin K.

In order to achieve and maintain our health, it is of utmost importance to correct and restore our body’s ability to digest, absorb, and utilize what we consume. The addition of fermented nutrition is a powerful way to ensure this is happening.

Beets have been renowned as a powerhouse of the vegetable kingdom for centuries but recommended in limited amounts due to their high sugar content. However, when fermented most of the sugar is consumed by the bacteria. The fermentation process leaves the health-boosting ingredients intact, while enhancing beneficial bacteria activity, and nutrient absorbability.

Fermented Beetroot Benefits

Beets Boost Heart Health

Beets contain a high level of nitrates. As we age, we become less efficient in the production, and conversion of nitrates to nitric oxide and thus, our nitric oxide levels naturally decline. Nitric oxide has been widely reported to play a critical role in supporting a healthy cardiovascular system as well as promoting energy, maintaining heart health, supporting blood circulation, and promoting healthy blood pressure.

The naturally occurring betaine in beets also helps reduce inflammation and protect against environmental stressors that can play a role in heart disease. When we increase our cardiovascular efficiency and oxygen uptake, our stamina and potential for sustained physical activity are greatly improved, which is why so many athletes have started using beets, as a pre-workout supplement instead of heavy stimulants.

Fermented Beetroot Has Immune Enhancing Properties

The phytonutrients that give beets their deep crimson color also have powerful anti-cancer properties. Research has shown that beetroot extract reduced multi-organ tumor formations in various animal models when administered in drinking water. Beets help boost immune function thanks to high vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and manganese, while betalain pigments and sulfur-containing amino acids in beets support the body’s detoxification processes purifying the blood and liver.
