Beetroot is part of the same family as spinach and known to be rich in antioxidants and fiber which makes them one of the healthiest foods you can eat.

Beetroots naturally have an earthy flavour which is why they are commonly pickled. To some this is an acquired taste but if you juice these vegetables in a NutriBullet or blender, you can manipulate the flavour by adding other types of fruits or vegetables and keep the goodness.

For centuries this vegetable has been used medicinally.  Even its leaves are loaded with nutritional value.

Both betanin and vulgaxanthin can be found in beetroot.  Both of these have very powerful detoxification, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties.

If eaten raw, this vegetable can help with aches and pains.

If you are pregnant or taking other medicines, you should seek the advice of your GP before consuming.
