Benefits of Drinking Beetroot Juice

Updated on June 27, 2013

Beetroot is also known by various other names like table beet, garden beet, red beet. This is found mainly in North and Central America and Britain.

Beetroot juice is said to be quite good for your overall health. It has wide range of medicinal benefits. The most common way in which most of us eat beetroot is in salads. Though it is also roasted, grilled and boiled and then eaten too.

However the juice too is considered beneficial because it contains nitrates and antioxidants which have a positive effect on the overall health of the individual.

Lowering High Blood Pressure: High blood pressure is not a good situation and hence needs to be controlled. Beetroot juice is found effective in lowering your blood pressure. This is so because it contains nitrates in high amounts which eventually turn into nitrites. These nitrites not just widen the blood vessels but also increase blood flow to different body parts. Apart from this it is also rich in potassium as well as folic acid both of which are effective in lowering blood pressure.

Boosts Stamina: Scientists have found that those who drink beetroot juice are said to have more stamina than those who do not drink it at all. According to a study in 2009, the researchers have brought to light that drinking beetroot juice enhances the overall physical performance of the individual.

Reduces Inflammation: Beetroot juice is useful for obese people as it helps in reducing inflammation and thereby prevents diabetes.

Digestive Disorders: Beetroot is found effective in treatment of various digestive disorders, nausea, vomiting, jaundice as well as dysentery. If you want to increase its benefits you may even add a teaspoon of lime juice to it. If you are suffering from gastric ulcer then you can drink beetroot juice mixed with honey as the very first thing in the morning.

Blood Flow to Brain: Beetroot Juice if taken regularly is found useful in movement of blood flow to the brain. This helps in improving the various functions of the brain like proper cognition, and also prevents dementia.

Aids Digestion and Piles Prevention: The cellulose content of beetroot helps in making digestion process easier. So it is good for those who suffer from constipation. A decoction of beetroot is beneficial in treating piles also.

Skin Disorders: If you want to get rid of various skin disorders like pimples, boils and skin inflammation then you need to boil some beetroot in water. This water if you drink will be quite effective.

Facial Benefits: Beetroot is considered to be quite useful for your face beauty also. If you use it as a mask it will add glow to your face and give it a pinkinsh touch as well. In order to make a mask from beetroot, you just need to add some extracts of beetroot or beetroot juice to your regular clay mask, this makes your skin fair and helps in removing acne and dark spots also.

      Informative hub about the benefits of beetroot. I personally enjoy beetroot juices and I don't mind the steamed vegetable itself. My wife hates the juice but loves to eat it steamed as well. With so many benefits to be derived, she should probably have the juice. Good job on this hub.

      I love beets, especially in salad. I have found that I like golden beets more than red beets. They are a little less acidic for me.
