Vegan day 301: BEET it!

BEETS are known for many health benefits including those which help with blood purification, calcium deposits, kidney problems, constipation, nerves, high blood pressure and weight loss. I am talking about it today as a cleansing juice. Each person’s body is different, but I feel it’s a great addition to my juices. I regularly juice kale, carrots and apples. It’s a good practice to switch up the vegetables or try new additions. Today I used my usual three with the BEETS and celery. It was amazingly potent- I could feel it! The good thing with beets too is that it adds sweetness and taste. 

Beets are high in folate and the pigmentation is indication of high antioxidant protection. 

The lids are off in the pictures for a second and almost a second too long sorry! Oxygen and warm temperature can lessen the potency of the enzymes. It’s best to drink it right away but if you want to make extra for later, then at least cap it and refrigerate it quickly!

Here are a few interesting links and compelling reasons to eat BEETS:
