Beets

If you include beets weekly in your diet you may find improvements in blood pressure, your immune system, a healthier liver, gallbladder and healthier bowels and digestive systems including lymphatic systems.

Beets are amongst that rarity of plants, a root vegetable with a second super healing leafy green vegetable attached.

Beets are a rejuvenative  food for nearly every organ in the body according to researchers at the American College of Clinical Nutrition, and an effective healing agent for disorders affecting organs especially liver, lymph and digestive systems.

Beets are high in beta-carotene, flavonoids, fiber, certain B vitamins, certain amino acids and have many other micronutrients.

German researchers concluded beet juice has anticancer properties as well due to the combination of detoxifying and antioxidant properties.

The greens growing above beets rank in the top 5 sources of 3 antiaging antioxidants – flavonoids, alpha and beta carotenes and chlorophyll as well as many valuable minerals and other phytonutrients.
