Beetroot Benefits

Healthy and Glowing Skin:

The beetroot juice is high on iron, vitamins, and minerals. It cleanses the body of toxins, resulting in a healthy glowing skin.

Regulated Blood Pressure:

Beetroots contain nutrients that may lower the blood pressure. The reason is that the nitrates, compounds in beetroot juice that convert into nitric acid in the blood and aid widen and relax up the blood vessels.

Reduced risk of Heart Diseases:

Studies show that myocardial infarction (obstruction of blood supply to a tissue in the heart) can be prevented by daily intake of beetroot juice.

Boosted Stamina:

The plasma nitrate levels are increased by the intake of beetroot juice that boosts up the stamina to work out.

Healthy Body Weight:

Beetroots are low in fat so you can have it without worrying about weight woes. However, they have high sugar content so they must be taken in moderate amount.

Increased Immunity:

Beetroot has nutrients to strengthen the immune system, and also support brain and bone health. The Beet greens are also equally nutritious.

Lessened Chances of Cancer:

Beetroot contains powerful antioxidants like betalains that have chemo-preventive abilities against some unstable cancer cells.

Prevention of Fatty lever:

Beetroot has betaine that helps prevent or reduce fatty deposits and toxins in the liver.

Intake of Valuable Mineral and Vitamins:

Beetroot provides one of the most powerful antioxidants i.e., Vitamin C. Also, it offers necessary mineral boost which supports the immunity, bones, and muscles. Some of the minerals are:

  1. potassium
  2. calcium
  3. iron
  4. magnesium
  5. manganese
  6. phosphorous
  7. sodium
  8. zinc
  9. copper
  10. selenium
Reduced Cholesterol:

Studies show that beetroot has cholesterol-lowering potential because of its phytonutrients such as flavonoids.

How to Include Beetroot in Daily Diet?

Beetroot is one such vegetable that you may either love or hate in taste. But there are a few easy ways to include it in your daily diet.

Juicing is the best way to intake beetroot because cooking them will reduce their nutrients. If you do not relish the beetroot juice as alone, you may add a few apple slices, carrot, mint, lemon etc. This will help balance out its earthy taste.

You can add raw beetroots to the salads.

The beet greens can be sautéed with spinach and can be taken as sides to the main course.
