I love beets. From the dark and rich color to the intense amount of fiber that makes up each taste orb of goodness; it is hard not to get fired up about this badass vegetable.
Beets are perfect roasted and placed on salads and as a stand alone dish but they can also be used in the juicer to give you some serious health benefits.
Beets naturally open blood vessels and provide nitrates that are transformed into NITRIC OXIDE which increases your bodies ability to utilize oxygen. In the running and endurance world, there is a big push for runners to consume beet juice to keep them in the fight for long periods of time without ill effects of other supplements.
Beets help fight cancer by helping your body with polyphenols and other flavonoids. These important enzymes I have spoken about many times in relation to the anti-inflammatory process in the GUT.
Finally the Liver and kidneys love beets in any form for their ability to detoxify the body. They act by flushing out the system and helping to create new red blood cells to cary nutrients and oxygen.
Beet juice is simple and can be naturally sweet. Here is a great recipe that can simply be made with your home juicer:
1 Large (roasted) beet
1 medium green apple
3 Stalks of Celery.
This juice gives you your daily amount of Vitamin C and a good bit of fiber. Because it is an anti-inflammatory juice this would be good mixers with Collagen Powder for a Post- Workout juice!! Sounds Good Huh???!!!!
Be healthy and thrive my friends...
