6 Reasons Why You Need to Eat Beets
Beets are vegetables that contain the highest levels of sugar, but it is safe to eat them a few times a week because they are rich in nutrients that may improve your overall health.
1.Lower your blood pressure
This benefit comes from the natural nitrates found in beets which are later converted into nitric oxide. This helps in relaxation of the blood vessels which improves the blood flow and lowers the blood pressure. A study once found that by drinking one glass of beet juice the systolic blood pressure can be lowered by 4-5 points.
2.Boosts your stamina
This benefit is also believed to be connected to nitrates turning into nitric oxide which reduces the oxygen cost of low-intensity exercise and enlarge the tolerance to high-intensity exercise. Drinking beet juice right before exercising may prove valuable because those who drank it claim that they were able to exercise 16% longer than the rest.
Betaine is a nutrient that protects the cells and beets are rich with it. They are also rich in proteins and enzymes which are known for helping with inflammation, protecting the internal organs and enhance performance, improve vascular risk factors and are good for preventing numerous chronic diseases. According to World’s Healthiest Foods, betaine lowers the levels of inflammatory markers such as: C reactive protein, interleukin-6, and tumor necrosis factor alpha.
4.Anti cancer properties
Research has shown that the extract of beetroot can reduce a multi-organ tumor formation in some animal models when put in water, for instance, and this extract is being studied for usage in treating human breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. This is due to the phytonutrients found in the beets.
5.Rich in valuable nutrients and fiber
Beets contain the B vitamin folate, which is excellent in reducing the risk of birth defects. It also contains vitamin C, fiber and potassium, which are essential for healthy nerves and muscles and manganese, excellent for the bones, kidneys, liver and pancreas.
This vegetable is valued for detoxification and helping the liver and blood purify. The betalin pigment supports the body’s phase 2 detoxification process, where broken down toxins are bound to other molecules and are excreted from the body.
