Although beets rarely find themselves on home or restaurant menus, they are now trying to become a table centerpiece. Since they are wrapped in a color of scarlet velvet, it’s strange they have been overlooked for so long. Beets are dynamic little power plants, stuffed with phytonutrients that serve as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory secret agents. They are rich with potent nutrients that guard against birth defects, heart disease and even certain types of cancer.
In today’s video we’ll examine 6 reasons why you should add beets to your diet. 1. Prevents Constipation The colon is a highway in which traffic jams are a painful nuisance. Since beets are high in fiber, they keep waste moving along at the proper speed limit to ensure healthy bowel movements.
Studies seem to indicate that betacyanin, a phytochemical compound in beets, may help wage war against colon cancer. 2. Anti-Cancer Properties Recent studies show that beetroot extract has been effective in treating pancreatic, breast and prostate cancer. It also reduces tumor formations on organs. The powerful combo of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are showing positive results in lowering cancer risks. 3.
Detoxes Your Liver Many of us forget that our bodies need a robust detoxification process. Countless toxins and other types of waste can create severe health problems if they aren’t eliminated. Beets are able to destroy these invaders from liver cells, while also bolstering the immune system. 4. Reduces Risk of Birth Defects Vitamin B is swimming inside beets, and one of its properties – folate – can lower the risk of birth defects. Beets are also packed with Vitamin C, potassium and manganese.
To function properly, nerves, muscles, kidneys, the pancreas and liver must have a steady dose of these essential minerals. 5. Fights Inflammation Most chronic illnesses and diseases begin subtly, with mild inflammation. A natural nutrient in beets, betaine, acts as armed guards to shield internal organs, cells, protein and enzymes from inflammation and environmental stress. 6. Lowers Your Blood Pressure Nature pours a generous supply of nitrates into beets. Nitrates have been credited with lowering patients’ blood pressure levels in only hours.
One study reveals that drinking one glass of beet juice can reduce blood pressure as much as 4 to 5 points. Once nitrates convert into nitric oxide, blood vessels relax and dilate, which improves blood flow.
