Turn up the Beet

Recently I was out to dinner and ordered a beet salad. It was so tasty and delicious. With a few simple ingredients in the salad, I knew it must be pretty healthy.

Soon after I came home and began Googling the health benefits of eating beets. It turns out, beets are quite the superfood.

Beets have been around since the beginning of time. Usually they are coveted for there taste and bright pigment. Rarely are they praised for the health benefits they provide.

According to Planet Matters , beets are a cancer fighting food. They are rich in beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant which aids in the fight against free radicals and cell damage. Beets also are high in calcium which help ward off osteoporosis.

But wait there’s more…
Another website, Organic Facts, they help with blood circulation, anemia, and kidney disorders.

And if you still need a reason to eat beets, the Ancient Romans used them as an aphrodisiac. 💗

So I urge you to pick up this low cost, low calorie, highly charged superfood today!!!

The Beet Goes On…
