Heart Matters – Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is a yearly reminder of heart matters.
Veggie juice might not necessarily guarantee a romance boost in a relationship, but it can definitely help with the physical health of your blood and heart. Which could have positive implications for the former …
In the month where the spotlight is on hearts, we would like to highlight the benefits of a superfood veggie in its extracted form, beetroot juice.
The nutrient compounds in raw extracted beetroot juice are highly concentrated. It is rich in antioxidants, loaded with Vitamin C and Folic Acid, iron and carotenoids, as well as naturally occurring nitrates and betaine (especially the beneficial natural pigment betacyanin).
Regular beetroot juice consumption has been directly linked to heart-health benefits such as lowering blood pressure, boosting athletic performance and better recuperation, and reducing inflammation in the body. It also aids in detoxifying the liver and assisting gut health. There is considerable research confirming its assistance to the body in preventing cancerous growth. The concentrated Phyto nitrates in beetroot juice reduces and helps to maintain blood pressure levels.
Drinking beetroot juice, either straight-up or in a healthy smoothie, essentially helps to purify the bloodstream and improve cardiovascular health.
Love your own heart by adding one to two cups of this superfood to your daily diet.
