Beets-Nutritious, Delicious, and Healthy for You

Beets – or beet roots – are known for their bright, vibrant, and earthy taste. They are commonly tossed into salads and soups, pickled, or used as a natural coloring agent.  They also exude health benefits, can be used for a wide array of purposes and can bring great flavor to any dish.

Beets contain phytonutrients with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and detoxifying properties.  They are also an excellent source of essential vitamins such as folate, manganese, copper, fiber, potassium, phosphorous, vitamin C, and vitamin b6. Studies on beets show they may be able to reduce the risk of heart disease; support blood flow and improve blood pressure; increase stamina, due to their nitrate content; and, keep you regular due to their incredible source of dietary fiber.
