Beets -The Most Underrated Superfood

Updated: Dec 23, 2019

Superfoods are foods that are like no other. They’re found to be nutritionally dense and thus good for general health and well being. We’re living in exciting times, as we are under the process of rediscovering the benefits of foods that we’ve eaten for ages.


Ancient Greeks associated consumption of beets with better blood health, going solely by it’s “blood red” colour, and they were partly right!


The only time most of us came across beets was back in middle school, when it was probably fed to us in canned form or in a salad. Only recently have we looked into the actual benefits of consuming them, and you may be surprised by how many boxes this bright red vegetable checks!


· Keeps Blood Pressure at bay

Nitrates present in beets help in relaxing and dilating blood vessels, providing an organic alternative to maintain blood pressure


· Antioxidant properties

Beets contain a group of chemicals called betalains that possess antioxidant capabilities. They attack harmful free radicals and reduce oxidative stress, which are a direct contributor to heart disease and cancer


· Anti-Inflammatory

Choline, a nutrient found in beets, helps in muscle movement, memory and has anti-inflammatory properties


· Improves athletic performance

Nitrates found in beets directly affect and increase oxygen uptake, which increases athletic performance by about 16%.


· Increased Brain Function

Being on a beet juice cleanse for at least 6 weeks showed significant improvement in brain function of people around the age of 65 and above.



· Aids in digestion

Beets contain fibres that help clean your gut and promote regular bowel movements and digestive health.

· Plethora of Nutrients

Raw beets contain essential nutrients like Protein, Fat, Fiber, Vitamin C, Folate, Vitamin B6, Magnesium, Potassium, Phosphorous, Manganese and Iron that are needed by the body for optimal functioning.
