Beets have always been one of our favorite vegetables because they are so incredibly versatile. They’re excellent when they’re baked, boiled, pickled and dried! The health benefits of beets are incredible and they make for an amazing dinner side dish! Often people turn to potatoes as a side dish when they cook, however beets are way healthier and fill the same plate space… not to mention they’re way tastier (in our opinion).
Here are 5 Health Benefits of Beets
1. Contain Essential Nutrients
When you’re looking for a meal component that gives you the essential daily dose of nutrients, look no further than a side of beets! Beetroots contain the following:
- Folic acid
- Vitamin C
2. Lowers Blood Pressure
Studies have proven that eating beets on a regular basis can help in reducing hypertension (high blood pressure). The nitrates present in beetroot are capable of lowering blood pressure and when the nitrates turn to nitric oxide, they’re able to oxidize the blood for efficiently.
3. Boosts Energy Levels
People who drink beetroot juice on a regular basis have been shown to display higher stamina and physical endurance.
4. Supports Health Liver Function
The Betanin found in beets protect the liver from accumulated fats. The anti-oxidants can encourage the liver’s function, optimizing its ability to rid the body of toxins and overall detoxification.
5. Cancer Fighting Properties
Beets have also displayed incredible abilities when it comes to cancer fighting. The betanin pigment from beetroot can inhibit cancer cell growth and tumour growth in the breast, testicles, stomach and colon. The antioxidants in beets also help to rid the body of free radicals that can eventually lead to cancerous cell growth.
