We’re bringing our love of beets to the unofficial month of love and sweets. In February we celebrate the versatile, delicious and beautiful beet.
Beets are a common raw material for sugar production. With their high sugar content, they should be eaten in moderation.
Beets help lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation, increase stamina and support detoxification.
Beet greens strengthen immunity and support bone, brain and heart health.
Researchers have found drinking beet juice increases oxygen uptake due to its high nitrate content. A good idea for a workout drink!
