Beets also referred to as table beet or beetroot belong to the chenopod classification of foods.
Other veggies from the unique family of foods include spinach and quinoa which are superfoods packed with potent antioxidants, antimicrobial and even anticancer properties.
These vegetables are characterised by yellow and red betalain carotenoids and pigmentation. They are rich in phytonutrients which have for long been known to boost the health of the body’s nervous system.
This makes beets are very powerful neurological superfood, however not everyone is fond of eating beets especially kids, something parents need to work on and ensure that their children make eating beets a part of their daily dietary routine.
Beets help to detoxify the body of harmful toxins by cleansing and stimulating both the liver and kidneys to function more efficiently.
Once the body is free of these acidic toxins it makes it hard for cancerous cells to grow and develop as these malignant cells rely on the body’s acidity in generating their food and for their survival.
By increasing the alkalinity of the body, beets help to restore the body’s balance, boost it’s immune system and help ward-off diseases and infections.
This makes beets an amazing veggie that should not be ignored but rather it should form part of our daily diet.
Just like quinoa and spinach, beets offer the body with potent antioxidants which help to combat free radicals and reduce their premature ageing effects on your body thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots and age spots.
So whether you eat your beets whole or blend it in your favourite smoothie, you should make beets your daily companion so as to boost your health and promote your general well-being.
