Boosts endurance: Heading out for a run or cycle? It’s not a stretch to say beets are rooting for you. The nitrates found in beets help dilate your blood vessels, which can increase your endurance.
Improves blood pressure: Beets are rich in nitrates, which your body converts to nitric oxide. It is a compound that relaxes and dilates blood vessels, making them superhighways for your nutrient- oxygen-rich blood. That means better circulation, and possibly lower blood pressure.
Lowers inflammation: Beets are high in betalains, a group of cancer-fighting antioxidants. These give beets their dark red, purple and sometimes yellow color. These antioxidants decrease inflammation that can otherwise increase your risk for chronic diseases like heart disease and cancer.
Supports brain health: With increasing age, your cognitive and mental health starts to decline. This can lead to conditions like dementia. The reason behind this is the reduced supply of blood flow and oxygen to the brain.
Better skin health: Beets are a great source of Vitamin C. Many trendy skincare products are filled with this Vitamin, which is excellent for the skin. But why spend thousands of dollars on skincare.
Supports liver health: Your liver is responsible for some 500 different functions in your body.
Aids weight loss: When you're trying to lose weight, it can be very beneficial to eat foods that are filling.
Improves Heart Health: Betaine is a powerful compound that helps lower the levels of homocysteine.
Great for your eyes: The beta-carotene present in beetroot reduces or slows macular degeneration in the eyes.
Prevents anaemia: A lot of people believe that beetroot’s red colour helps prevent anaemia.
Improves gut health: Beetroot is high in fibre. It is highly beneficial in regulating your digestive processes and easing bowel movement to offer quick relief from constipation. Betalains present in beetroot help maintain good overall digestive health.
Reduces birth defects: Beets are very good for pregnant people as they are a rich source of vitamin B folate.
