BEETROOT: ROOTING FOR YOU

Here are some benefits of the miracle food, beetroots! 

Beetroot Is Your Liver’s Friend

The beta cyanin in beetroot can help detox your liver, having a knock-on effect for your bloodstream, by helping the body to eliminate toxins and potentially preventing the build-up of fatty deposits.

Mixed with lemon and apple juice, the freshness and zingyness will also help you feel fresher and more awake while delivering vital nutrients your body can easily absorb.

Beetroot Juice Can Prevent Strokes & Heart Attacks

Beetroot juice has been shown to reduce high blood pressure. It affects an estimated 25% of the world’s adult population and is a significant factor in coronary heart disease and strokes.

Researchers at Barts’ Hospital (London) and the London School Of Medicine found that drinking 500ml of beetroot juice a day can significantly reduce high blood pressure, for over 24 hours after drinking.

Beetroot Is Packed With Nutrients

Beetroot is filled to the brim with both vitamin C and iron, which is great for your body. Both are essential to a healthy lifestyle, but many of us struggle to absorb enough iron.

Vitamin C is water soluble, which means it leaches out of veggies when you cook them in water. So the easiest way to get your combo-fix is to eat raw beetroot. The roots are a good source of many other vitamins and minerals, including folic acid, phosphorous, magnesium and B6.

Beetroot Makes You Smile

Beetroot has been shown to contain the compound betaine, which enhances the production of the body’s natural mood-lifter seratonin. So it would seem that munching fresh beetroot can literally make you smile. Betaine is also really useful for cardiovascular health.

Immune System Booster

Beetroot’s amazing range of vitamins and nutrients has been shown to boost your immune system, helping you better fight off infection. These nutrients help stimulate the re-oxygenation of cells and the production of new blood cells.
