Unotuched natural mesmerizes me how it lives in harmony within itself; plants, animals intertwined in a sometimes chaotic yet cyclical unity. This perspective shaped my childhood and evoled into a quest for knowledge of ethnobotany (study of the relationships, between peoples and plants). I'm humbled that this exploration allow me to build a line of natural health products.
At MRM , we are inspired by nature and utilize sciene as a tool to learn, incorporate, support and educate what the natural wold has to offer.
Respectfully, the Superfoods are the foods our ancestors thrived on, not today's foods we survive on.
Many Thanks, Mark Olson Found of MRM

What is Organic Red Beet Powder?
Red beets, or beetroots, are a nutrient dense superfood. Both the deep red taproot and green leafy above ground portion, including leaves and stems, can be entirely consumed as part of any healthy diet.
The green leafy portion can simply be compared to chard or other green leafy vegetables. In drastic comparison, MRM utilizes only the extraordinary and antioxidant rich taproot from certified organic red beets.
Our whole food powder comes from a gentle process that slowly dehydrates the root at low temperates so as not to damage the significant nutrients it contains. By gently removing the water, we keep the powder raw and its many beneficial compounds active and bioavailable.
This gentle process simply removes the water from the vegetable leaving behind all its nutrients, a deep rich color and its sweet, earthy flavor. This makes it a versatile ingredient in any kitchen for both savory and sweet recipes.
Red beets attribute their vibrant red color to unique group of antioxidants called betacyanins. These antioxidants have the ability to neutralize harmful and damaging molecules called free radicals. Certain free radicals cause oxidative stress that can be hazardous by causing damage to key cellular structures such as DNA, cell membranes, or proteins. These uncommon antioxidants have garnered the interest of the science world where they are being researched for protection against oxidative stress related disorders.
The unique antioxidants, betacyanins, were once thought to be similar to anthocyanins, the dark pigments found in grapes, but were later proven to have very different structures. While these antioxidants may be similar in color, they are structurally very different and the two have never been found in the same plant.
Along with these antioxidants red beets also contain naturally occurring betaine and nitrates. Two compounds that are the reason red beets and beet juice is also being studied for possibly support of cardiovascular health and sports for energy and endurance benefits.
Grown for both their taproot and above ground green leafy portion, beets have been contributing to human health for millennia. Their historical uses in food and medicine can be traced around the globe from Europe to Asia and Africa.
Undoubtedly, their vast expanse of use around the globe, both historically and today, can be attributed to their unique ability to grow rapidly and relatively easily.
