Ruby Roots Juice

Gets your ruby roots on with this delicious juice recipe from Juices & Smoothies page 81, combines about 1 cup of chopped beets, one large orange, and one piece of ginger root. I love beets!

Some health benefits I learned about ... Beetroot
  • Beetroots are your liver's best friend! The betacyanin they contain (a.k.a. the pigment found in beets) help detox your liver, which helps the body eliminate toxins
  • Drinking beetroot juice helps reduce high blood pressure
  • Like all fruits and vegetables, they are packed with nutrients like, vitamin C, iron, folic acid, phosphorous, magnesium, and B6
  • They make you smile! Betaine in beetroots enhance the production of seratonin, which is a natural mood-lifter
