ORGANIC BEET ROOT CAPSULES
Beets may help to both thin and move the bile as well as to metabolize fats. May be helpful for relief of symptoms of a gallbladder attack. Beetroot has been touted for decades as a liver-protective food.
Ingredients: 400 mg raw organic beet root per capsule, 800 mg per 2 capsules
Dosage: 2 capsules per meal
RESEARCH ON BEETROOT
Recent global research on beetroot reports that it may be helpful for lowering high blood pressure(1) and at the same time it may increase stamina and energy levels(3). Yet another study found that it increased blood flow to the brain(2) which is good for dementia. These effects are apparently due to the nitrates present in the beets. Isolating the nitrates and taking them separately does not work as well as in its synergistic form in the beet.

Beet Capsules is a great way to get a lot more beets into me without eating too many beets. My gallbladder seems a lot happier.

I finally got past my plateau and have been steadily losing weight since I started taking this. I've been stuck for a long time and this got things "moving". I recently had a dilated gallbladder duct and since taking this the symptoms have improved tremendously.
