Maybe you will tune in over a Berry Beet Worthy Smoothie? :) Beets have had my # lately and I'm loving the benefits. I've been placing 1/2 a beet in our shake in the morning and can seriously feel the difference. Add some dark leafy greens and your body will be thanking you.
Why include a beet? They are high in vitamins and minerals, Potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, iron; vitamins A, B & C; beta-carotene, beta-cyanine; folic acid are a few...! Beets cleanse the body by purifying the blood. Beets can help your mental health with depression as well as well-being. Not only that but it can help lower your blood pressure. Beets are a high source of energy and can be used as a stomach acid tester. How can it test the stomach acid? If you are eating a lot of beets and your pee turns pink, you have low stomach acid. If your pee is still clear? Increase and get juicing!! Hope that wasn't TMI but I thought it was quite neat! Feel free to learn more by clicking here.
