BEETROOT JUICE HEALTH BENEFITS

Beets have many benefits to the body. It is claimed they have the ability to:

  • clean and build the blood
  • lower blood pressure
  • improve circulation
  • calm the nerves
  • improve the health of the liver, kidneys, and bladder
  • clean the intestines
  • fight cancer
  • improve menstrual problems
  • cure anemia

Beets Nutrition

Not only are raw beets a beautiful color, but they are also packed with nutrients.

Vitamins

Beetroots are a good source of folic acid and vitamin C, plus they contain small amounts of vitamins B1, B2, B3, and vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene. 

Minerals

Rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and sodium. Plus smaller amounts of iron, zinc, copper, manganese, and selenium. 

Amino Acids

While raw beets are mostly water and carbohydrate they also contains small amounts of all the amino acids (protein). 

Calories

One 2″ (5cm) beetroot contains 35 calories. 

Caution: Beet greens and to a lesser extent beet roots are high in oxalate, and are generally considered unsuitable for people following a low-oxalate diet. Anyone with a history of oxalate-containing kidney stones should avoid over-consuming beetroot and beet greens.

Here is a great source for purchasing Organic Beet Powder. Use this when traveling and fresh juice is not available.
