Benefits of Eating Beets

Beets contain a wealth of vitamins and minerals that benefit the body. Beet, or beetroot, contains B Vitamins, most notably Folate. Other nutritional benefits including dietary fiber, potassium, manganese, and Vitamin C. Like most vegetables, beets also contains low amounts of salts and fats, so there is little risk of serious harm by overindulging in them. Beets help protect your body from infection.

There is a substantial base of research that indicates the power of beets to lower blood pressure. Beets provide this benefit in two ways: on the one hand, they provide potassium, which is generally good for heart health and counteracts the negative effects of sodium, which can cause damage to the structures of the circulatory system. However, there is also evidence that beets can contribute to heart health. The increase of nitrous oxide results in lower blood pressure levels and paves the way for a number of other potential treatments.

Learn About Detox Cleansing Foods

If you feel tired, sick, or weighed down you need to start exercising and eating right.  “The Perfect Little Body Workout” will motivate you to exercise for better health.  Start slow, try a couple exercises each day.  In time you will be able to exercise longer and feel better.

Eating right is also very important.  Food isn’t just calories.  The type of food or how you get the calories makes a difference.  Every bite we take is fuel for our body.  It is important for us to start making the connection between what we eat and how we feel.

Creating and trying new healthy recipes is my passion.  I like to steam, grill and bake raw veggies which helps me detox my body.  I often eat raw veggies though out the day in small portions.

As an example, in addition to being very healthy in general – beets, Brussels sprouts, and sweet potatoes will also act as a cleanse to flush you out if you are feeling sluggish.

Beets are wonderfully sweet and are also said to lower blood pressure.   Brussels sprouts have high cancer-fighting properties, and sweet potatoes pack a super beta-carotene punch.

They taste great alone or with other veggies, such as ginger, which is good for your heart.

Exercise and healthy eating will also help your mental attitude and will help you to begin thinking in a more positive way.  It is all about learning ways to stay healthy.
