Beetroot is rich in vitamins (vitamins A, E, C and B) and contains various types of mineral (e.g. potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium, copper, phosphorous and iron) which help maintain the daily absorption of nutrients in horses. Beetroot also contains folic acid which affects the metabolism and production of red blood cells. Beetroot contains saccharose, although the fibres are mainly water soluble, which means that beetroot, despite its sugar content, has a blood sugar-levelling effect. The water soluble fibres form a jelly in the intestines and thus slow the absorption of glucose, which in turn slows the rise in blood sugar. The red pigment in beetroot (betanin) is also a strong antioxidant, which protects the cells and blood vessels against free radicals.
All these properties qualify beetroot as a real “Superfeed”!
Beetroot is used to boost stamina and accelerate recovery. Studies in humans have shown lower urea levels in the blood, which reduces the protein load. It has therefore increased in popularity in recent years among for example elite sportsmen and women.
