Beet Root Extract

Beetroot juice is taken for many purposes, from aphrodisiac use to boosting exercise capacity to supporting liver and eye health. The supplement is rich in vitamin C, magnesium, manganese, potassium, bioflavonoids and beta-carotene. A concentrated beetroot extract, called betaine, is taken to maximize liver detoxification, to boost natural production of hormones in the body that promote the feelings of well-being and relaxation.

Excessive consumption of beetroot should be avoided due to the potential for copper and iron accumulation.


It is also stating that extended use can discolor urine and blood.  Being that it's beets, and those can stain the heck out of just about anything, it makes sense.  It also states that these discolorations aren't anything to be alarmed by.
