Beets are an affordable natural multivitamin, and are filled with disease-fighting and anti-inflammatory benefits. The bright purple color means they're packed with rich antioxidants, which promote health, great skin and anti-aging benefits.
Beets are a great root to add to a detox or a cleanse. They cleanse the blood, kidneys and colon, and can also help revive the liver. Great for reducing cholesterol and fighting heart disease, this superfood also provides B-complex vitamins to improve mental health and clarity.
Incorporating this rich, beautiful root will provide many health-boosting benefits. Beets are very versatile and can be included in many recipes. You can bake them or boil them and toss some olive oil on them, then add them as a side dish or to a salad. You can puree them and add them to a desert. My favorite is to juice them and put all those healthy benefits straight to work.
