All About the Beets

Edward Jimenez
I wish we would make Beet.coin because beets are instant investment in body and mind. The Nitric oxide benefits from the bodies reaction to Nitrates present in both the greens and the red bulbs we all know, allow your vascular muscle cells to relax. This provides greater vasodilation, providing cells with more detoxification benefits and via greater oxygen concentration.This chemical reaction helps with everything from blood pressure to sports performance ;). According to the CDC, nearly half of all adults suffer from hypertension. 45% for you sticklers like myself.
Please do not throw out the nutrient dense green tops. Full of all the suns magic, the greens are significantly higher in vitamin k, a, c, k and probably LMNOP whenever we find that. :)
They also have just about your entire daily amount of chlorophyll. Some of you Adam Sandler fans may remember this as Borophyll but actually this amazing plant pigment is the opposite of boring to the quality of your blood. Overall, the bulb part of the beet gives a little more in the macro arena. They may not be as nutrient dense but they are also super-packed with prebiotic goodness and tons of nutrients.
My Personal Story: I drank one-16oz beet juice for 5 days and the next week I felt like the Hulk. Since then, it has been my pre-workout replacement along with a few other superfoods, coming soon.
I almost forgot...or should I say.... EYE almost forgot to mention that Beets are rich in Beta carotene. Higher carotene levels are inversely related to metabolic syndrome, chronic disease and other causes of mortality.
P.S. They make your pee red. Don’t freak out!

Going Green

Nicole Jimenez

For those of you who have ordered from us in the past, you know we've always used brown paper bags as our packaging. That said, we have used plastic bags to separate the produce. Some items just need a little support. But, we're not waiting until the New Year to make a resolution. We've tested it and have decided to replace our plastic bags with paper bags!! Though we can't control how the farms pre-pack some of their products, we're vowing to do our part and make sure that all of OUR packaging will be recyclable and we'll use as little packaging as possible to avoid waste! 


It is a simple thing that may not seem significant to all, but we'll feel better knowing we're doing our part to make an impact. :)
