I love Beets and am always looking for another way to get them in my diet, juice is a great way.
Beets have a wide range of health benefits. They are loaded with dietary fiber, vitamin C, magnesium, iron, copper and phosphorus! They are very low in calories and have no cholesterol. The nitrates in beets can help improve athletic performance.
Beet fiber helps to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides by increasing the level of HDL cholesterol (“good” cholesterol). The fiber in beets also works to strip excess LDL cholesterol from the walls and help to eliminate it from the body quickly.
Now that you have read all about how great beets are for you here is an easy way to add them to your diet, my Juice of the week, Beets for Energy!
3 leaves Swiss Chard
1 seeded red chili

Wash all produce thoroughly. Add to your juicer and enjoy!
