One of my best experiences as a private personal chef was for the express purpose of supporting a certain client in losing weight. We included Dr. Tom Cowan's recommendation of coconut oil as he describes it in his Fourfold Path to Healing. Although I did not emphasize the inclusion of beets at the time I had included them in my suggestions for juicing earlier in another situation, however we learned that there is a limit to how much beet juice one can tolerate! Whole beets is different and I imagine that the use of beet powder is too.
Dr. Cowan says:
"even though beet-root juice contains a significant amount of carbohydrates, it has been shown that the daily consumption of beet-root juice improves insulin sensitivity (the root cause of the metabolic syndrome), results in weight loss and lowers the average blood sugar (the HgBA1c)."
There are a number of additional benefits that come with beets that you can read about at the FourFoldHealing site.
November 8, 2017 - "Beets have been rediscovered ...
... and are now touted as the 'new' superfood. And for good reason.
They are rich in iron that is easy to assimilate. (Their deep-red color contests to their blood-building power). For many years, I have told people with anemia to include beet root in their diets, often with results that far exceed typical iron supplements.
Beets contain a chemical called betaine (the word itself is derived from beets), which is responsible for thinning the bile.
Thinning the bile means that the liver and gall bladder have an easier time digesting fats, which mitigates the development of gall stones and supports bowel elimination. We humans produce betaine in our livers, which is the body’s way of keeping the bile flowing strongly. Eating beets support this free flow of bile.
In many recent studies, beets have been found to regulate blood pressure. The body produces nitric oxide, whose main function is to relax arterial walls, thereby lowering elevated blood pressure. Recent studies have shown that beet-root powder increases nitric oxide production because of beets’ nitrate content."
