For those of you that like their research (like me) here are some fun facts...
  • Beets- Beets are loaded with vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and C. The greens have a higher content of iron compared to spinach. They are also an excellent source of calcium, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, sodium and iron.
    • Blood pressure- All its healing and medicinal values effectively normalizes blood pressure, lowering high blood pressure or elevating low blood pressure. 
    • Acidosis- Its alkalinity is essential and effective in combating acidosis.
    • Varicose veins- In similar ways that it helps to keep the elasticity of arteries, regular consumption of beets juice also helps prevent varicose veins.
    • Atherosclerosis- This wonderful crimson juice is a powerful solvent for inorganic calcium deposits that cause the arteries to harden.
    • Liver or bile-  The cleansing virtues in beets juice is very healing for liver toxicity or bile ailments, like jaundice, hepatitis, food poisoning, diarrhea or vomiting. 
    • Detoxification- The choline from this wonderful juice detoxifies not only the liver, but also the entire system of excessive alcohol abuse, provided consumption of alcohol is ceased.
    • Cancer- Betaine, an amino acid in beetroot, has significant anti-cancer properties. Studies show that beets juice inhibits formation of cancer-causing compounds and is protective against colon or stomach cancer.
    • Anemia- The high content of iron in beets regenerates and reactivates the red blood cells and supplies fresh oxygen to the body. The copper content in beets help make the iron more available to the body. A great blood builder.
