#BodyDetoxFriday: BEETROOT

We are getting the body overly excited today because we get to touch all the nooks and crannies. I might as well call it the body’s environmental sanitation day because it sure cleans all the edges, even the organs that we have not thought to single out for a clean.

It is body detox Friday and the magician for the day is BEETROOT.

Beets are a unique source of phytonutrients called betalains. Betanin and vulgaxanthin are the two best-studied betalains from beets, and both have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support. Although you can see these betalain pigments in other foods, the concentration of betalains in the peel and flesh of beets gives you an unexpectedly great opportunity for these health benefits.

Eating beetroots have lots of advantages; they can boost the body energy and lower the blood pressure. When consumed over an extended period, beetroots helps to fight cancer, reduce arthritic pain, boost the brain function and contributes to losing some body weight.

Beetroots contain a unique mixture of plant chemicals and minerals that make them superb fighters of infection, blood purifiers, and liver cleansers.

Beetroots help boost the body’s cellular intake of oxygen, making them excellent overall body cleansers. When detoxing, beets help by making sure that the toxins you are getting out make it out of your body.

Give your body a green treat today.
