What Beets Can Do For You (And How To Enjoy Them!)

What Beets Can Do For You (And How To Enjoy Them!)

By: Lindsay Sibson

A wise soul once said…

“Breathe properly. Stay curious. And eat your beets.”

I’m not exactly sure who said it (or if it was ever truly said until now), BUT it seems like pretty sound advice, so let’s TAKE IT!

What Are Beets?

Beet (beetroot) is the taproot portion of the beet plant and is in the same plant family as Swiss chard.

Raw beets have a crunchy texture that turns buttery and soft when cooked. The leaves can also be used in various cuisines and have a bitter taste similar to chard.

Both parts of the beetroot are incredibly nutritious and have a high concentration of vitamins, minerals and nutrients.

Health Benefits Of Beets

  • Contain a high dose of immune-boosting vitamin C
  • Rich in essential minerals, such as potassium
    • Essential for healthy nerve and muscle function
  • Provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxification support
  • Source of phytonutrients, such as betanin
  • Source of manganese
    • Good for your bones, liver, kidneys and pancreas
  • Fiber content helps keep your digestive tract healthy
  • A power ingredient in Organifi Green Juice Powder
