- Good for your heart: Beetroot juice is a source of nitrates and antioxidants called betalains, which may benefit heart health and reduce oxidative damage and inflammation
- Protects the liver: Beetroot juice protects the liver from oxidative damage and inflammation, all while increasing its natural detoxification enzymes.
- Promotes healthier skin: Beetroot juice acts a great blood purifier, which is key in keeping your skin glowing and healthy. Beetroots are also rich in Vitamin C which helps in clearing blemishes and evens out your skin tone while giving it a natural glow.
- Anti-aging: Because beets are high in vitamin C, some consider beets to be good for the skin, even suggesting that they can protect from signs of aging, such as wrinkles. According to Oregon State University, both topical and dietary vitamin C have beneficial effects on skin cells.
