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.
