Red Beets (Beta vulgaris) were first domesticated in the Mediteranean as early as 2000bc, then introduced into the Middle East and Asia around 850bc. A cousin of amaranth, quinoa and spinach, Red Beet has been used as an herbal medicine by the ancient Greeks, Romans and medieval Europeans for digestive, cardiovascular and sexual health.

Most red fruits and vegetables get their color from anthocyanin pigments, beets however contain Betalain pigments, powerful antioxidants responsible for beet’s surprising health benefits, including detoxification, blood regeneration, colon cleansing and cardiovascular endurance.
