Beetroot is one of the healthiest vegetable, hands down. They contain vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber and are also rich in vitamins C and B6, folate, manganese, betaine and potassium.

Let’s look at some health benefits of drinking beetroot juice.


Beet juice is an effective detox drink that can help your liver to get rid of toxins and keep fatty acids from building up.


The antioxidants and lycopene in beetroot protect the skin by neutralizing free radicals and maintain elasticity.


Drinking beetroot juice helps your intestines to breakdown food. Beetroot contains betaine that prevents fatty deposits in the liver and protects it from toxins.


Betaine is a powerful nutrient that protects cells, proteins and enzymes, reduces inflammation, protects internal organs and reduces vascular risk factors.


Beetroot juice can lower the amount of glucose in the blood due to the soluble fibers found in beets.


Drinking beetroot juice increases plasma nitrate levels and boosts physical performance, thereby increasing your stamina. If you are headed for a work out, drink a glass of beetroot juice for enhanced stamina.

Beetroot juice has an ocean of benefits but there are certain precautions you must exercise. If you have low blood pressure, drinking beetroot juice may further lower your blood pressure. If you are prone to kidney stones, don’t drink beetroot juice as the oxalates may lead to stones.
