Beetroot also helps in absorption of Iron, the dark green leaves are bitter in taste but are rich in Calcium.
A glass of beetroot juice helps in giving you all the vitamins and minerals in a concentrated form. Don’t remove the pulp from the juice that’s where all your fiber is.
Beetroots are best enjoyed raw and uncooked as cooking may destroy most of its nutrients. You can add them in salads or easier to just juice them up.
Some people may not like the natural taste of Beetroot juice so as a Dietitian it is my advice to blend it with carrot, lemon, mint to make it a perfect healthy & tasty drink for yourself.
“A combination beetroot juice with carrots and Amla is very healthy especially for those who have been suffering from anemia.
As a Dietitian it is my suggestion to all health lovers that it is best to have beetroot juice early morning or one hour before your breakfast. “Drink a 200 ml glass of beetroot juice every day to reap all its benefits. But drink it fresh else the nutritional value of the juice diminishes,”.
6 Amazing Benefits of Beetroot
1. Manages Your Blood Pressure
Beetroot juice can help in temporarily lowering high blood pressure. Researchers have attributed this to the presence of nitrates in beets. The naturally occurring nitrates increase nitric oxide found in the blood vessels which allow more oxygen to flow to your brain, heart, and muscles and thus, lowering high blood pressure.
2. Gives You Glowing Skin
If you’re healthy from within, it reflects on the outside. Beetroot juice acts a great blood purifier. Beetroots are also rich in Vitamin C which helps in clearing blemishes and evens out your skin tone while giving it a natural glow.

For long, beetroot has been known as the liver-protective food. It is a great liver cleanser and helps in flushing out all the toxins.
