There are lots of reasons why you should love beetroot!
This root vegetable has more to offer than you think. It’s packed with nutrients and antioxidants and has a number of health benefits from inside and out. Here are 3 surprising benefits of beetroot that you may not have known…
Beetroot is rich in nitrates which can help in increasing the brain’s blood flow. Elderly people can tremendously benefit from this as it can slow down dementia progress. It was in 2011 when a peer-reviewed article was released in the National Institute of Health to prove this claim. In the paper, it was stated that nitrates can potentially reduce the progression of cognitive decline in older adults.
For those who are guilty of having a sedentary lifestyle and poor food choices, beetroot may be your best ally to make yourselves healthier. The antioxidant profile of this superfood can potentially prevent a disease called fatty liver disease, which is caused by excessive alcohol intake, poor diet, continuous exposure to unhealthy substances, and a sedentary lifestyle.
Beetroot contains an antioxidant called Betaine that can reduce the toxic deposits in the liver. It can also protect the liver from damage brought about by free radicals and toxins.
Did you know? A glass or two of beetroot juice can power up your physical performance. A 2012 study showed that cyclists who took a daily intake of beet juice experienced improvement of a 10-kilometre performance at 12 seconds faster than usual.
