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
