Beet Juice in a Smoothie!

Oh, come on! Beet juice in a smoothie is good…when done right, but no worries we’ll help you out on that! By adding beet juice to your diet every once ‘n’ a while you support the blood system through the vitamins and minerals beets contain.

Check out the benefits of juicing beets below.

Benefits of Juicing Beets

Essential Minerals – Beetroot juice contains magnesium, phosphorous, sodium, calcium, iron, copper, selenium, zinc and manganese - all of which are essential to a healthy immune system.

Vitamins – Beets are a vitamin powerhouse! They contain thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin C, and a small amount of vitamin E.

Antioxidants – Carotenoids and flavonoids among others are found in beetroot juice. They defend the body against free radical attacks and slow premature aging.

Deep Red, Beautiful ColorBetacyanin produces the beet's deep red color. It is believed to be an anti cancer agent particularly effective for colon cancer.

Blood Boost – Beets are extremely helpful in creating red blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen to the entire body, so it is imperative to support these guys from the inside out.

Detoxify the Liver – Beet juice is especially helpful in aiding healthy liver function. The compounds found in raw beet juice protects the bile ducts and stimulates the liver cells to get rid of toxins. A clean liver allows the whole body to function more efficiently.

Healthy Skin – Good nutrition and elimination will have positive effects on the skin. Raw juices help protect against premature aging and help provide natural SPF, too.

Support Immune SystemBeets fight inflammation, build the blood, and provide essential vitamins and other nutrients necessary for healthy immune function.

How to Blend Beetroot Juice in a Smoothie

Beet-juice is sharp. So hiding it in a smoothie and picking other ingredients that blend well with it is important for the end result to be…tasty. Since beetroot juice is strong only a tablespoon or two will do the trick.

Blending a banana, mango or pineapple in with your beet smoothie is a great way to take the tangy/bitter taste out. And ice is always a good addition!

Remember Moderation

Beets contain a host of beneficial nutrients, but should never be drunk by themselves in quantities of more than an ounce or two.

OK. But why so much stress on "moderation"? Because beets contain powerful properties! Rule of thumb: beets can comprise 1/8 of a glass of juice to start - one ounce of beets to 8 ounces of carrot or other vegetable. Moderation is the key!
