New survey reveals nearly half of Americans haven’t eaten a beet in the last year, largely due to a dislike for the taste or texture, missing out on key health benefits
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Feb. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Garden of Life®, the carbon-neutral leader in science-based formulas made from clean, traceable, organic and non-GMO ingredients, is introducing new beet supplements to its collection to promote anti-aging, liver function and heart health.†
The new supplements aim to fill a hole in many Americans’ diets, as new research from Garden of Life reveals 47 percent of U.S. adults haven’t eaten a beet in the last year, and that’s due largely to not liking the taste or texture of beets. The new supplements are designed to taste great yet still provide an easy way to reap the full benefits of beets.
The Benefits of Beets
Beets are known to help the body deliver oxygen and carry nutrients to the cells more efficiently and studies show athletes who drink beetroot juice have been able to improve their performance. But beets have several other lesser-known benefits, including having been clinically studied and used to improve energy and stamina, support healthy aging, promote detoxification, support heart and lung health, and lower blood pressure.
However, only 30 percent of Americans have eaten beets in the last month, with 43 percent of Americans who avoid beets citing they don’t like the taste or texture and 21 percent unsure of how to prepare beets. And according to the research, nearly all Americans can’t correctly identify the health benefits they miss out on by not including beets in their diet.
“Garden of Life’s mission has always been to empower extraordinary health and it was clear to us that not enough people were tapping into the extraordinary health benefits of beets,” said Brian Ray, President of Garden of Life. “These new beet supplements are full of wholesome, organic ingredients that most Americans are missing out on every day and they’re available in formats that make getting in your daily dose of beets even easier.”
Introducing: Beet Supplements
Garden of Life now offers four beet-based supplements at digital and in-person retailers across the country. Each supplement is made using clean, traceable, organic and non-GMO ingredients.
Beets Detox with Apple Cider Vinegar Drink Powder
Many people don’t enjoy eating beetroot or drinking beetroot juice, but that doesn’t mean they should be swayed from accessing the detoxifying nutrients beetroot provides. This delicious beets detox drink powder was designed with key ingredients that support the body’s natural detoxifying system, which helps the body maintain a healthy weight and liver function.† With all-organic and non-GMO ingredients, this powder also includes apple cider vinegar, black currants imported from New Zealand, acerola fruit juice, ginger, lemon juice, tart cherry and lemon peel extract.
Beets Beauty Powder
Who doesn’t want to sip on something that promotes more radiant skin, healthy hair and stronger nails?† This delicious blackberry-melon-flavored drink powder is loaded with key ingredients such as clinically studied organic French melon, black currant and acerola cherry, which promote healthy hair, skin and nails, as well as support the body’s resistance to sun-related aging. † The powder is also rich in nitrates that help improve the body’s blood flow, which in turn can help promote collagen production. †
For the majority of Americans who aren’t keen on taking a bite out of a beet, these beets gummies – nicknamed “fruit salad in a bottle” – are the solution. Made with organic tart cherries, black currants, beets and plant-based vitamin D3, these gummies are a great option for post-workout supplements. They’re most effective in preventing muscle soreness, promoting heart health and energy production and reducing stress levels. †
Beets Gummies Beauty
These delicious beets beauty gummies, which taste just like raspberries, are packed with antioxidants that promote healthy and youthful-looking skin. With additional ingredients like organic bamboo silica, non-GMO biotin and organic acerola cherry vitamin C, the Beets Gummies Beauty supplements are designed to help give anyone’s hair, skin and nails a healthy boost. †
Also Introducing: Dr. Formulated Magnesium Gummies
Alongside the new beet supplements, Garden of Life is also introducing new magnesium supplements to its product lineup.
Research has shown that when the body is under stress, magnesium helps prevent high blood pressure, headaches, muscle cramps and other stress-related symptoms. And because it’s estimated that 75 percent of the population is magnesium deficient, the Garden of Life team worked collaboratively with David Perlmutter, M.D. – the doctor behind “Dr. Formulated” products – to create magnesium supplements for the entire family. These gummies, which contain 400 mg of magnesium in four gummies, help promote better sleep as well as bone, muscle, digestive and heart support.†
