Benefits of Beet Juice

Beet JuiceGreat things happen to your body when you drink beet juice! Chock full of superb nutrition, beets can help with all these health concerns:

Lowering blood pressure

Studies show that regularly drinking beet juice can significantly lower your blood pressure. How? The high levels of natural nitrates in beets are converted in the body to nitric oxide, which may be able to lower your systolic and diastolic blood pressure counts.

Help you lose weight

Not only is beet juice rich in nutrition, but it’s also pretty low in calories and high in insoluble fiber, which can improve your digestion and help you lose weight. Consuming fiber can control your appetite by making you feel full and satisfied, aiding in your weight loss journey. Drinking beet juice in the morning is a good way to feel energized and focused until your next meal.

Reduce inflammation

Another health property found in beet juice are betalains, a nutrient found in some plants. Research shows that betalains may help to lower inflammation as well as lower oxidative stress, which is a leading cause behind chronic inflammation.

Improve blood flow

The nitrates in beets can help to dilate blood vessels and increase blood flow through the body. This increased blood flow helps to raise oxygen levels in the body which can then help treat high cholesterol, lower your risk of heart disease and stroke, and improve circulation.

Boost your energy

A daily glass of beet juice can provide you with a boost of energy and improve your stamina. That same nitrate that’s converted to nitric oxide to help lower blood pressure can also increase the uptake of oxygen while you’re active and exercising, making you less tired throughout the day.

Prevent iron deficiencies and anemia

The ample amounts of iron in beet juice supply your body with plenty of this mineral. Iron can help to regenerate the body’s red blood cells which can help to prevent anemia.

Boost Nutritional Content With Beet Greens

Beetroot Vegetable with Beet GreensMost juice recipes that use beets will call for the beets to be trimmed – which means you’re left with beet greens that are full of nutrition. Not only high in fiber, but beet greens also contain high levels of vitamins A, B6, and C, as well as magnesium, potassium, calcium, and iron.

Beet greens also contain vitamin K, which may work with calcium to increase bone strength and may help in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. So, the next time you’re juicing beets, consider juicing in the beet greens as well.
