Beetroot is a very good source of vitamins A, C, B and folic acid. Beetroot extract mainly contains betaine, as well as anthocyanins and nitrate, which can have a very positive influence on the cognitive function and the cardiovascular system, especially for people with over 50. Years of age.¹ The ingredients in beetroot also promote the formation of the mitochondria (power stations of the cell). The more mitochondria we have, the more efficient we are. Those who have more mitochondria in an advanced age, age more slowly and stay younger. In addition, the more healthy mitochondria we have, the more vital we feel.
