RECOMMENDATION

Beetroot is great roasted, cold in salads, picked as a side dish or juiced.

If you are not eating organic beetroot, be sure to peel the beet before consumption as they do tend to contain some pesticides on the skin surface.

Why Beetroot is good for us

Beetroot is an excellent source of folate which supports heart and reproductive health and can aid in the production and repair of our DNA. It also contains a unique fibre which could help lower colon cancer risk.

A study in 2016 found that beet juice reduced the toxic effects of a commonly used chemotherapy drug Adriamycin (doxorubicin) in heart cells while increasing the effectiveness of the chemotherapy treatment in triple negative breast cancer cells. This is why we use beet juice in most of our juices and why Beetroot made it into the “Fit 50”.
