Benefits of Beetroot Juice

If you were anything like me as a kid, I hated vegetables, whenever my mother would put veggies on my plate, I would make sure I was the last person left on the table so I could wrap it in tissue and throw it out of the window, I did that with most foods that I didn’t like to be honest.

Any who now I’m older and wiser I love my veggies and cannot get enough of them, well all except one... the dreaded foul tasting Brussels Sprout which makes me gag just thinking about it..That veg will never pass my lips.


I’m going to be sharing some information on the benefits of Beetroot Juice. Juices of fruits and vegetables are very valuable, they are rich in vitamins, micro elements and other useful and necessary minerals.

Beet Juice Promotes Heart Health and Blood Flow. Nutrition experts have long recommended diets rich in fruits and vegetables to promote heart health and help lower blood pressure and could be a natural approach to reducing the risk of heart disease.

Beet juice can also have a positive effect on the body during exercise. There is another brand called Beet it which is a 70ml stamina shot great for those hitting the gym or going for a run etc. A recent study showed six days of beet juice enhanced overall physical performance and heart functioning during exercise.

Beet contains nitrates which open up your blood vessels to lower blood pressure; it stops platelets from being sticky; and it prevents the blockages that lead to stroke and heart attack from forming. Eating beets won’t give you the same quantity of nitrates as beet juice because the cooking process deteriorates some of the nitrates, but it certainly is good for your health. 


Beet juice can turn your stool and urine red so don't be alarmed if this happens.

Beets are high in Vitamin C and iron, can help detox your liver, remove toxins and potentially element the build up of fatty deposits.




I purchased a bottle from Evolution Organics for £4.99. It's 100% concentrated beetroot juice, with no added preservatives. Sweet tasting, premium quality concentrated beetroot juice. Each 210ml bottle typically made from concentrated juice of over 30 beetroot.

A 210ml bottle makes two litres of diluted juice (mix 30ml concentrate into half a pint of fresh water).

 

Thanks for reading and please do comment, coz I love reading them. :-)
