5 Delicious Beet Smoothies To Try

Beet and strawberry smoothie.

Beets like to grow in the Fall, so you might come across them at the supermarket soon. If you don’t like beets, I recommend you try them in smoothie form. The smoothies below featuring beets do not taste like beets; they’re delicious, filling and super good for you.

Health Benefits of Beets:
1. Rich Source of Vitamin C and other Valuable Nutrients

Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). Beets also contain the B vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects.

2. Rich Source of Betaine

Another nutrient that red beets are a rich source of is betaine; betaine is vital to good cardiovascular health. Betaine’s purpose is to lessen your body’s concentration of homocysteine, a substance which is hurtful to your blood vessels in the sense that it can contribute to peripheral vascular disease, stroke and heart disease.

3. Beetroot Juice Benefits – Lower High Blood Pressure

The effects on high blood pressure are apparently so potent that information published in the journal Hypertension, a publication from the American Heart Association, established that consuming 500 milliliters of beetroot juice resulted in a measurable reduction in hypertension in just an hour. These beneficial results lasted even up to 24 hours after such beetroot juice drinking. Scientifically, the credit goes to the high content of nitrate that is present in the beetroot juice. (source)
