Description
The Odds for Americans are: 1 in 4 deaths will result from heart disease 1 in 3 have high blood pressure. 1 in 10 have Type 2 diabetes. 1 in 3 adults are obese. 1 in 5 women and 1 in 6 men have a lifetime risk of having a stroke after age 55. 1 in 2 have at least one heart disease risk factor (high blood pressure, high cholesterol or smoking). It is no coincidence that our ancestors saw fit to ensure the cultivation of one vegetable in particular for our benefit and survival. They discovered its worth for many aspects of health without ever knowing the science or biochemical explanations. However, it now appears they did associate one of its most important health-giving qualities to an obvious clue - appearance. Take a closer look at the beloved beet and see for yourself. Discover the treasure trove of abundant plant or "photo"-nutrient wealth that it bestows and then prepare yourself for the surprisingly best beet benefit of all - one that will undoubtedly change the level of your vitality and the course of your health in very exciting areas. Harness the power of beets to radically transform your health.
