What is Beetroot Powder?
Beets are a root vegetable – they’re very similar to turnips. When you eat beet slices in your salad, you’re eating pickled or boiled beets. Although they don’t come up in conversations nearly as often as trendy health foods like kale, beets are actually chock full of vitamins and nutrients.
Our Organic Beetroot powder (also known simply as beet powder) has been used in natural medicine dating back to Roman times. Scientific and pharmaceutical interest has gained momentum only in the last few decades, but the ancients knew what was up. Beets are nutrient-dense and, beyond centuries of understanding, have also held their own through our more modern clinical scope.
Health Benefits of Beetroot Powder?
1. It’s Sustainable, Versatile, and Convenient.
Our Organic Beetroot Powder is a highly renewable resource and an inexpensive source of nutrients. Plus, beets can be cultivated in soils with scarce organic material and little light and water.
If you aren’t looking to grow your own beets--or cook and peel them, for that matter--Naturevibe Botanicals Organic Beetroot Powder is a great way to get the nutritional benefits of beets without the extra work (or stained fingers!). Beetroot powder turns beets into a much more versatile product, perfect for baking, sauces, oatmeal, and, you guessed it--smoothies.
Beets are rich in a group of antioxidants called betalains. And we're here to say betalains have the beauty and the brains: they give beets their gorgeous color and have been linked to reducing oxidative stress. They may also aid in the body’s natural detoxification process, making beets a favorite among livers and kidneys everywhere.
2. It’s an Antioxidant Powerhouse.
3. It’s Rich in Vitamins and Minerals.
Beets are incredibly nutrient-dense, especially when it comes to vitamins and minerals. Some like to call them nature’s multivitamin. Beets are good sources of folate, manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C.
4. It’s convenient for regular use
Imagine peeling, chopping, and grinding beetroot every morning for your vegetable juice. Does it sound doable for every day? Mornings are one of the busy hours in almost every household. Therefore you need some convenience to match your time with your health goal.
It is like an instant drink. All you need to do is take a teaspoon of our Organic Beetroot Powder and stir in water. That’s all, the basic beetroot drink is ready.
How to consume Beetroot Powder?
- The easiest possible way to consume our organic beetroot powder is to add a tsp of it to a glass (250 ml) of water and stir it as an instant drink.
- If you want to take your drink to a next level, consider adding fresh carrot juice or amla juice to it.
- You may also think of adding any fruit to it for better taste. Freshly prepared pomegranate/ mosambi/ orange/ pineapple juice goes really well with it.
- You can also add the powder to your smoothie or yogurt or soup.
- You may also try to add it while making dough for roti/ paratha or in the idli/ dosa batter.

Store in an airtight container, and keep in the fridge! However, the product doesn't need to be refrigerated after opening. As long as it's properly stored in a closed container such as our bag or some other sealed container at room temperature or below, its nutrition should remain intact.
Beets are an overlooked superfood that doesn’t get nearly enough credit. Not only do beets pack a powerful punch of nutrients, but they also contain unique substances like nitrate and betalain from their pigment to offer a wide range of unique bonuses.
The beetroot powder benefits are pretty much identical to that of regular beets but you don’t have to consume ten beets a day to reap the rewards: just add a few scoops of powder to your smoothie and you’re good to go. This makes beetroot powder a safe and effective item to add to your daily routine. If you’ve tried beetroot powder earlier, share your recipe with us in the ‘Submit your recipe’ section.
