We know that antioxidants are good for us, but what exactly is an ‘antioxidant’, how do they work, and why are they so important for our health?


Pro-oxidants are also made when the body is exposed to toxins, UV radiation, infection, and inflammation. These pro-oxidants can damage our DNA, organs, and tissues. Basically, when the body is challenged, injured, or burdened in any way, it makes dangerous pro-oxidants that have the potential to cause long term damage and disease.

Luckily, our bodies have compounds called antioxidants that neutralize the pro-oxidants and heal the damage they may have caused. This microscopic balancing act between damage and repair using pro-oxidants and antioxidants is called redox balance1.

An antioxidant is anything that can neutralize and clean up the mess caused by pro-oxidants. These include vitamins like A, C and E, detoxifiers in the liver like glutathione, and compounds from plants like flavonoids and phenols. We get most of our antioxidants from vegetables, as well as some from fruits, spices, herbs and proteins.

Salus Red Beet Crystals are made from organic beetroot juice that is fresh pressed within 2-3 hours of harvesting and dried using a special procedure. Salus Red Beet Crystals provide all the benefits of organic beetroot juice in a convenient crystal form that is easy to add to smoothies, soups, yogurt, cereals, and meals. It has a naturally occurring sweet flavour and contains no additives or preservatives.

Healthy nitrates found in Salus Red Beet Crystals convert into nitric oxide in the body, which dilates and relaxes blood vessels to improve circulation. As a result, studies show that nitrates from beetroot juice significantly lower blood pressure and improve arteriole stiffness to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
