The Red of Beet


Beetroot (Beta vulgaris) is also known as red beet, table beet, garden beet, or just beet.


The red 😍 of Beet. When you wake up thinking about Beetroot juice and feel drawn to the richness of its colour, it's probably what your body needs.

Beetroots are a great source of many essential vitamins and minerals:


1) Folate (folic acid, vitamin B9): for normal tissue growth and cell function and needed for red blood cells to form and grow. Found in green leafy vegetables and liver.


2) Manganese: an essential trace element. Helps the body form connective tissue, bones, blood clotting factors, and sex hormones. It also plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, and blood sugar regulation.


Manganese is also necessary for normal brain and nerve function. Found in high amounts in whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables.


3) Potassium: a very important mineral for the proper function of all cells, tissues, and organs in the human body. It is also an electrolyte, a substance that conducts electricity in the body, along with sodium, chloride, calcium, and magnesium. Is crucial to heart function and plays a key role in skeletal and smooth muscle contraction, making it important for normal digestive and muscular function. Found in all meats, some types of fish (such as salmon, cod, and flounder), and many fruits, vegetables, and legumes and dairy products.


4) Iron: found in the body's red blood cells, which carry oxygen-rich blood to every cell in the body and also involved in producing adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body's energy source. Extra iron is stored in the liver, bone marrow, spleen, and muscles.


5) Vitamin C: an antioxidant that is important for immune function and skin health.
