Helps Purify the blood. 

 
Beetroot is known for their cleansing properties that are loaded with powerful anti-oxidants that help detoxify the liver & kidneys. 
 
Boil or steam beetroot whole, with the skin still on for best flavour: peel (the peel comes off very easily by hand) when they are cooled.
 
Then they can be wedged & dipped in balsamic vinegar/pepper, or roasted.
 
Baby beets can be roasted without pre-cooking, with the skin on if you wish.
 
In many cultures the belief persists that if a man & a woman eat from the same beetroot then they will fall in love.
 
Aids in skin & glandular systems.
 
High Antioxidant Potency.
 
The colour of beetroot is due to phytonutrients called betalains, which are sometimes not completely removed in the digestive process & can be an alarming but harmless reminder of last night's meal featuring beetroot
 
If you become victim to beetroot staining, rub some fresh lemon over your hands, & it will come right off.
 
Beetroot contains betaine, a substance that relaxes the mind & is used in other forms to treat depression.

It also contains trytophan, which is also found in chocolate & contributes to a sense of wellbeing.
 
Beetroot can be partnered up with basil, mint, coriander, dill, fennel, sage, thyme & oregano. 

Beetroot also likes these spices - Cumin, allspice, cloves, caraway & ginger.

 

Perfect Vegetable for Athletes

Beetroot contains nitrates, which produce nitric oxide in the blood, widening blood vessels, lowering blood pressure & enhancing circulation.

With your blood flowing more easily, your muscles reap the rewards of getting more oxygen, reducing soreness & recovering more quickly.

More oxygen also means more stamina, so you can get up & go for longer, plus its anti-inflammatory properties help with recovery.

 

 

Add some beetroot to a smoothie after exercising & help your muscles recover more quickly.

Beetroot is bright red because of a substance called betanin, a potent antioxidant.

Aside from giving beetroot its vibrant colour, betanin also reduces the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, protecting against artery inflammation & lowering the risk of a stroke or heart attack.

It Helps Your Baby’s Development During Pregnancy

Folic acid is essential for the growth & development of a baby’s tissues & spinal cord, & beetroot is a great source.

Many women can also become iron-deficient during pregnancy, increasing the fatigue that often occurs during the first trimester.

Beetroot encourages the production of new red blood cells (a process called erythropoiesis), helping to boost iron levels.

Eating a nice raw salad packed with beetroot or adding beetroot to your morning smoothie can be a great way to reap the benefits during pregnancy.
