Beets are packed with anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, such vulgaxanthin, betanin, and isobetanin. Beets are also high in betaine – a key nutrient formed from choline. Choline regulates inflammation in your cardiovascular system.
Nature’s multivitamin/mineral supplement
Beets and beet greens are loaded with life-giving minerals, including magnesium (which has lots of benefits, including Alzheimer’s prevention), potassium (which aids heart, kidneys, muscle, nerve, and digestive functions), copper, iron, and phosphorus, an essential mineral aiding cell function throughout the body – and it’s good for bones and teeth, too. Beets are also a great source of Vitamins A, B, and C, as well as healthy fiber.
An antioxidant powerhouse
The part of beets that gives it its dark red color is beta-cyanine. Beta-cyanine is a powerful antioxidant that’s important in fighting disease. This includes cancer prevention, especially colon cancers.
Beta-carotene –a powerful antioxidant phytonutrient – is also prevalent in the peel and flesh of beets. In fact, beets are on the top-10 list of beta carotene-rich foods.
Lowering blood pressure
Beets are a prime source of phyto-nitrates. Phyto-nitrates are great for your health, helping your body to naturally lower and maintain a healthy blood pressure level. In your body, these healthy nitrites morph into nitric oxide – a compound that open up your vessels, which improves blood flow, lowering the pressure.
