Benefits of Beet Root Powder

Now you can see many colourful alternative lattes in London. Gold, Blue, Black and Pink… Which one is your favorite? or you haven’t tried them yet? I tried them all and now my favorite is PINK latte 🙂

What makes this cute pink colour???

…Beet root powder!!!

Beetroot powder is rich in antioxidants, Vitamins A, B6 and C, proteins, dietary fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, folate and manganese, along with other nutrients. Perhaps most remarkably, beets are naturally rich in nitrate, compounds that can improve blood flow and lower blood pressure, leading to notable health benefits.

Some of the main benefits of beetroot powder include:

  • Supports healthy blood pressure because it contains nitrates that are vasodilators.
  • Improves athletic performance by boosting your stamina and muscle blood flow and recovery.
  • Regulates homocysteine as beetroot is high in betaine, converting homocysteine to methionine. High homocysteine is a risk factor for many diseases.
  • Improves blood sugar control.
  • Tremendous antioxidant that limits free radical damage in the body.
  • Supports healthy blood clotting factors.

Especially for people who are concerned about aging, rich antioxidants is important for our body to fight against free radical damage in the body!!

One teaspoon of the powder is equivalent to one beet. This has a natural sweet taste and slightly earthy flavor. I like the combination of this taste with oat milk. This fancy drink will help improve your beauty and health 🙂

 

 

The secret of a beauty ① Chewing well

I have read these books by Aoi Kinoshita, registered dietitian in Japan.

I knew what we eat and how to eat the most important for our health and beauty but I haven’t taken it seriously and have tried to do exercises and use many beauty products instead.

But now is the time to take it seriously and start to change my eating habit even though I don’t like cooking…

So I decided to start slowly, not dramatically.

①Chewing well

This sounds difficult for me. I eat so fast without chewing enough, especially when I eat by myself, my mind goes somewhere to think something, definitely not focus on eating and food.

I will chew at least 30 times each bite.

 

[Benefit of chewing well]

– A histamine is secreted by mastication and a histamine helps to break down visceral fat and also prevent to overeat to send a signal to satiety center.

– A saliva includes the hormone which has the benefit of anti-aging.

– Good to prevent a double chin.
