Beetroot Lovers Please Come Forward, Help Scientists in Discovering the Benefits

If you wish to taste a burger laced with beetroot, then immediately contact the researchers at the University of Aberdeen. They are looking for some people who could come forward to help them out in revealing the health benefits of this vegetable.

According to researchers, there is a possibility that if they add this root vegetable to that meaty burger, then most of the bad fat that tends to form layers in your body could be restricted down. The root vegetable might hinder in the deposition of this fat into your body.

When fatty foods become a part of your treat, and they reside into your stomach, they trigger a process called oxidation in the stomach. During this process, the fats are converted into compounds that are dangerous for a human body. These compounds can result into cancer and heart diseases.

This study will take around four days to finish and will take place at the Rowett Institute in Bucksburn, Aberdeenshire. Individuals aged between 21 and 60, if interested in taking part in this study, can contact the scientists here.

The delicious turkey and beetroot treat given to the volunteers would be surely a delicious and healthy one. As said by the research leader Prof. Garry Duthie, from the University of Aberdeen, “We trialled a number of different vegetable extracts and found the combination of turkey and beetroot in the burger tastes good and has the advantage of looking the same as a normal burger. Beetroot may also have the added health benefit of lowering blood pressure”.

For discovering the results, the volunteers will be given turkey burgers with and without beetroot. Then it will be scrutinized that which compounds get wrapped up by their bodies upon the consumption of these two different burgers.
