Enjoy your BEETS :)

The amazing benefits of Beet Juice... Traditionally, people use beet juice to heal: anemia, liver, skin, kidneys, lymphatic circulation, tiredness, eye, liver, skin problems, detoxification, cancer. Beet juice may kill fungi, is a strong antioxidant and has anti inflammatory properties. 

Beet Facts

  • Beet juice may cause both your stool and urine to turn red.
     Don't be surprised if this happens!
  • Beet juice benefits are very powerful. 
    You only need a little bit of juice to get the benefits. 
  • Drink the juice raw because the most beneficial substances (like betalains) are lost when cooked. 
    In addition, the oxalic acid in the beet becomes harmful when cooked, but is (in moderation) beneficial when raw(according to juice and nutrition experts Dr Walker, David Wolfe and Gabriel Cousins).
  • Juice the whole beets: roots plus greens. 
    The greens contain most of the healthy minerals and vitamins.
