Beet Juice Crystals
There are three juices that are the key of any effective juice program:
A green vegetable juice, carrot juice and beet juice.
Juicing, and the benefits of a juicing program, have a long tradition, both in North America and around the world. Such researchers as Norman Walker D.Sc Ph.D., and Dr. Bernard Jensen have been investigating the effects of juice when made a part of the daily diet since the early part of this century.
The conclusion of their research is that there are three juices that are the key, the core, of any effective juice program: a green vegetable juice, carrot juice, and beet juice. In combination, these three juices provide a simple way to add natural, healthy nutrients to your diet. If grown in healthy soil, juice from these plants provide all the basics of human nutrition, which include carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals.
Each of these substances is necessary for proper health. But they only represent part of the current understanding of nutrition.
During the last several years, the National Cancer Institute has been promoting a campaign to get people to do one simple thing - eat more fruits and vegetables. Specifically, the recommendation was to eat five servings of vegetables and three servings of fruits a day. The Cancer Institute's reasoning is simple: a diet high in fruits and vegetables will prevent or cure a wide range of ailments.
Breast cancer, cancer of the colon, esophagus, stomach, lungs, ovaries, and rectum - pick a disease these days, it seems, and researchers somewhere are searching for chemicals in plants that will prevent them, or offer a cure. These plant chemicals, known as phytochemicals, are the cutting edge of nutritional research because they hold the keys to preventing some of our most deadly diseases, such as cancer and heart disease, as well as some of our most common, like asthma, arthritis, and allergies.
Today, researchers at the National Cancer Institute, the Department of Agriculture, and elsewhere, are working to identify the specific substances in fruits and vegetables that could be providing the protection against disease. In the process of looking, they have found quite a few phytochemicals.
A tomato, along with vitamin C, vitamin A and several minerals, also has 10,000 other chemicals in it most of which researchers are still trying to isolate, study, and identify.
The phytochemicals that researchers have uncovered are changing the way we think about food, especially fruits and vegetables. For example, broccoli contains a substance that may prevent, even cure, breast cancer. Citrus fruits have substances that make it easier for your body to remove carcinogens, thus decreasing the chance of contracting cancer. Citrus fruits have substances that make it easier for your body to remove carcinogens, thus decreasing the chance of contracting cancer. Grapes contain a phytochemical that appears to protect each cell's DNA from damage. Similarly, a number of vegetables contain phytochemicals that appear to offer protection against cancer- causing substances. The list goes on and on: bok choy, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower carrots, collards, kale, kohlrabi, mustard greens, beets, rutabaga, turnip greens, peppers, garlic, onions, leeks and chives are but a few of the vegetables that appear to contain cancer- preventing phytochemicals.
The problem, though, is that most of us don't eat enough fruits and vegetables to reap the benefits they offer. For example, although the National Cancer Institute recommends five servings of vegetables and three servings of fruit each day, the truth is this: the average North American eats only 1 1/2 servings of vegetables and, on average, no fruit on any given day.
AIM RediBeets® offers a convenient way to make juice part of your daily diet, and also, to help meet the requirements to eat five servings of vegetables a day.
Using a unique processing method that frees the juice - and its valuable nutrients - from the plant's fiber, RediBeets takes a half pound of fresh beets and turns it into a convenient teaspoon serving of crystals.
The beets used to make AIM RediBeets® are grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides, and are processed using state-of-the-art facilities that create a true juice product, free of fiber, without subjecting RediBeet's nutrients to high, damaging heat.
Those nutrients include vitamins B1, B2, B6, beta carotene, vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin E, the minerals sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, manganese, iron, cobalt, copper, zinc, chromium, selenium, as well as numerous enzymes.
As part of a regular juicing program, AIM RediBeets® provide one of the most convenient ways to achieve an improved diet through regular consumption of five or more servings of vegetables a day.
AIM RediBeets® are available in powder or caplet form.
AIM RediBeets® can be taken dry or mixed with water, another juice, or with AIM Barleygreen®.
The recommended serving is 1 to 2 teaspoons taken on an empty stomach. Do not exceed 2 servings per day without the advice of your health practitioner. Or take 3 - 4 caplets per day.
QuestionsCan I mix AIM RediBeets® with other AIM products?
Yes. Many people enjoy taking AIM RediBeets® either mixed with AIM Barleygreen®, or mixed with AIM Barleygreen® and AIM Just Carrots. It shouldn't be taken with AIM Herbal Fiberblend®, however, because this will tend to prevent some of the nutrients from being absorbed during digestion.
Is it okay to take more than the recommended serving?
Each person has different nutritional needs, which need to be assessed by each individual. However, beet juice can have a strong effect on some individuals when they incorporate it into their diet for the first time. For this reason, it is suggested that people take the recommended amount at first and increase gradually.
Beets contain a wide range of nutrients. Are these nutrients found in large amounts in AIM RediBeets®?
Of course the amount of nutrients in any natural food are going to vary from harvest to harvest, even between two plants growing right next to each other in the same field. All red beets, though, do contain a wide spectrum of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. However, compared with the Recommended Daily Allowances, the vitamins and minerals found in beets are not in what would be called in "large" amounts. They are found, however, in an organic form, where they have been assimilated into the plant. When they are captured during the juicing process, they remain in a form that is much easier to assimilate than, say, synthetic nutrients. The iron in beet juice, in particular, is noted for being much more assimilable than man-made forms of iron. Of course, since the RediBeets are a true juice product (meaning the fiber has been removed) the nutrients are that much more easily absorbed during digestion.
AIM RediBeets® taste quite sweet when I drink them. I am concerned about sugar. Is there a lot of sugar in AIM RediBeets®?
No. First there is no processed sugar in AIM RediBeets®. In fact, the only ingredient in AIM RediBeets® is beet juice. However, there are natural sugars produced by beets, which is what gives AIM RediBeets® its sweet, natural taste.
What part of the beet is used to make AIM RediBeets®?
AIM RediBeets® are made using red beets, which are the type of beet that is typically served at the dinner table. Only the root of the beet is juiced and used to make RediBeet crystals.
