Beet it! 2 Super Juices that will Give you the Edge

My local supermarket started stocking organic vegetable juice recently.  I took the plunge and bought their beetroot and carrot juices (separately).  I have experienced carrot juice before and it is fairly innocuous — especially when mixed with orange juice.

Beetroot, however, is pungent and, although I don’t mnd the taste, it can be rather invasive smell-wise, stain-wise, urine-wise (you’ll know what I mean if you eat beetroot!).

So what keeps me buying these juices every week and literally has me force-feeding my husband, who is vegetable intolerant, with a funnel?

I looked up the health benefits of both.  Let me start with beetroot.  If I haven’t got you galvanized, by the end of this blog, to shoot off down to your local grocers then I need throw in the towel.

Beetroot Benefits:

  • Anti-aging properties
  • Fights cancer
  • Improves digestion and metabolism
  • Stimulates weight loss
  • Detoxes the liver
  • Helps with Glandular Fever
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Stimulates brain function
  • Radiation protection

Footnote:  If you are not accustomed to eating or drinking beet, be warned that your excretions — both no.1 or 2 — could be tinged red due to the colouration of this vivacious veg.

  • Prevents heart disease
  • Reduces the risk of having a stroke
  • Anti-aging properties
  • Helps with skin tone

I hope I have convinced you to add a glass of these super juices to your daily diet.  And on that note, here are your free e-card downloads for this week.  I thought I could inject some humour into this juicy subject with an ‘I’m sorry’ card and a ‘Birthday’ card:

  1. In this article we have discussed some essential tips to
    get you informed and enthusiastic about juicing.

    It is also an excellent way to obtain additional food based vitamins and minerals for proper fetal development.

    This should never be a Band-Aid for not putting forth the effort that getting ready for an event requires.
