Footnotes:

This food, briefly described as BEET GREENS,RAW, supplies an extra generous amount of the following vitamins, minerals and nutrients:


Protein is the major structural component of all cells in the body and function as enzymes in membranes as transport carriers and as some hormones. During digestion and absorption, dietary proteins are broken down into amino acids which become building blocks of these fuctional and structural compounds. Threonine is the 3rd of 9 essential amino acids Tyrosine is the 6th of 9 essential amino acids Tryptophan is the 9th of 9 essential amino acids
Fiber, total dietary Function: Adequate fiber improves laxation. Reduces the risk of coranary heart disease. Helps maintain normal blood glucose levels.
Calcium, Ca, is the essential role in blood clotting, muscle contraction, nerve transmission, bone and tooth formation Copper, Cu, is a component of enzymes in iron metabolism. Iron, Fe, prevents microcitic hypochromic anemia. Magnesium, Mg, is a cofactor for enzyme systems. Manganese, Mn, is involved in formation of bone, as well as enzymes involved in amino acid, cholsterol and carbohydrate metabolism. Phosphorus, P, helps in the maintenance of PH, storage and transfer of energy and nucleotide synthesis. Potassium, K, maintains cell function. Potassium blunts the rise in blood pressure due to excess sodium intake and decrease recurrence of kidney stones Sodium, Na, and chloride, in excessive amounts, increase blood pressure, heart disease, hypertension and stroke. Zinc, Zn, is a component of multiple enzymes and proteins; involved in the regulation of gene expression.
Vitamin A, RAE is required for normal vision, gene expression, reduction, embryonic development and immune function (Vitamin A, IU) Vitamin B-6 is a coenzyme to metabolize amino acids, glycogen and sphingoid bases. Vitamin C, total ascorbic acid aka Dehydroascorbic Acid is a protective antioxidant. Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) is a chain-breaking antioxidant. Vitamin K (phylloquinone) is a coenzyme during the synthesis of many proteins involved in blood clotting and bone metabolism. Thiamin aka Vitamin B-1 Riboflavin aka Vitamin B-2 is a conenzyme in numerous redux reactions. Pantothenic acid is a coenzyme in fatty acid metabolism.
