Drinking beet juice increases the oxygen-carrying ability of your blood, which boosts endurance. Great! But it doesn’t mean you should start gulping down buckets of beet juice, because too much will hinder calcium absorption.
DRINK IN MODERATION…
Moderation is key – certainly with kids. Always mix beet juice with some other fruits and veggies. And watch out while juicing, since beet stains are here to stay. The color is so strong it even might color your poop red or your urine orange. No worries, it’s just a prank from our beloved beet.
…OR EAT BEET
Russians are fond of borscht, a traditional Russian beet soup. And even beet haters will fall for Beet Carpaccio; slice wafer thin beet-chips with the magic mandolin slicer. The beet will transform into a crispy, sweet treat. Add some dressing, grated carrot and pomegranate seeds for a winner salad.
WHAT MAKES BEET SPECIAL?
Since beets don’t grow a label, here are some nutritional highlights: beets support your heart, veins, liver and intestines. The red color comes from betalains, the anti-inflammatory and detoxification nutrients in beets.
