The Beetroot Juice Diet To Improve Overall Health.

Let's Not Beat about the Beet!

After reading about the benefits of Beetroot Juice I have decided to incorporate it into my diet. Why? Well for a start its not called one of the Super foods for nothing.

I have been lazy in my food habits for a long time. And never really taken much notice of the fact that my body had got sluggish and I have suffered with stomach problems.

Recently I have had terrible backache, so I decided it was time to do something about my overall health. Then I read an article (see below) that blew me away.

And the one thing I noticed that the lady in question did, was take copious amounts of Beetroot juice.

So I thought, well its working for her, lets see how we go.

I started taking beetroot juice this week, and to be honest I didn't think I would like it, but actually I am beginning to love it! If you don't like the taste, it's a bit earthy, you can add fruit juice such as apple or blackcurrant.

Cranberry tastes lovely with it too, it takes away the veg taste.

So Why Beetroot Juice?

Beetroot juice is full of Vitamins and Minerals.

Minerals

  • Magnesium
  • Phosphorus
  • Sodium
  • Potassium
  • Calcium
  • Copper
  • Zinc
  • Iron
  • Manganese

Vitamins.

  • Antioxidants
  • A
  • B1
  • B2
  • B3
  • C
  • Folic Acid.

The red coloring of Beetroot contains a chemical called betacyanin which is seen as an anti cancer for the colon.

It is also high in Silica which helps to utilize all of the calcium in the body that will strengthen teeth and bones.


This information is not just based on trial and error, it really does have scientific proof behind the study.

Beetroot juice will lower blood pressure within one hour of taking it! Can you imagine the implications of this to help keep your heart healthy?

It is also great for digestion, and boosting stamina by using the magnesium to boost oxygen levels and creating healthy blood cells.

Now does it sound like the perfect Super Food?

So Why Have I Decided To Start The Beetroot Diet?

To understand this, we have to understand our own health. Most of us forget just how fit and healthy we used to be. Over the years we have become slower, more sluggish and in some cases, downright lazy.

But of course this type of eating and feeling will become the norm. And as we grow older we get so used to it that it does feel like we have always been this way.

Then comes the aches and pains. Maybe unspecific illnesses that we can't quite put our finger on but we just don't feel right.

So what's the first thing we do? We run straight to the Doctors. We expect them to sort us out, give us a pill and then in a couple of weeks we will be back to normal. Whatever that is.

Aches and Pains

Recently, in fact over the last year if I want to be honest, I have been feeling 'not myself'. I have had stomach problems, bloating, eczema and even aches and pains. I have taken tablets, drank lots of water and so on but still I don't seem to be getting anywhere.


Then a couple of weeks ago I started to get a really bad back ache. Its just gone on and on, and it started to drive me insane.

I have done the exercises, sorted out my bed, and more importantly changed the chair where I sit to write.

Yes these things did help to a certain degree. But not completely.

Then I had a thought.

Can Changing my Diet Help?

So this got me thinking. Maybe a lot of my problems were caused by the food I was eating. From now on I am going to change my diet.

So, this is the first week of my new food regime. And would you believe it? I have been on it for three days now, and I already start to feel better.

And no, its not psychosomatic. For a start my stomach is no longer swollen. And more to the point, my energy is coming back and, drum roll please.....


My backache is nearly gone! So what have I tried so far?

My Diet So Far.

Lunch
Dinner
Drinks/Dessert
Salad
Chicken with steamed Veg
Beetroot Juice/Yogurt
Salad Roll with small cheese
Stir Fry Veg
Beetroot Juice/Yogurt
Cheese Roll
Chicken with Veg
Beetroot Juice

Beetroots for Stamina

I will update the daily Table chart as I go. I know most of you will think its too early to say that the food is helping, but its a bit strange to think that my backache and my stomach have both felt a lot better purely by coincidence.

So what's going on? Well for a start my stomach bloating is obviously caused by the food that I eat. That's a fact. It doesn't matter whether I am actually allergic to certain foods or not, which I don't believe I am. Its more to the point that leaving out stodgy food such as sausage rolls, yes my favorite! And other pastry or heavy foods is definitely going to help me.

We all need roughage. That's a fact. And eating stodgy food is just going to build up in your gut and make you feel sluggish. I have suffered really bad constipation in the last couple of years, mainly because of the food but also because I no longer go out to work so I am more stagnant so to speak.

And Beetroot for Heart and Brain!

Beetroots The Way To Go!

There are so many fad diets. Whether its to lose weight, or just change your health for the better. This one I had never heard of before. In fact I am the one putting the words Beetroot and diet together.

We shall see. So far so good. Its not the food that will let me down, its my will power. But I am determined to keep to this.

Why? Because I am getting older, and I want to stay as fit and healthy as possible. With my back aching so badly this last couple of weeks I started to get scared. Is this it? Am I going to be stuck like it?

And that's the time for change.

Beet That!

      I eat a lot of beets and they are great for the diet. I haven't actually drank the beet juice. Do you buy the beet juice or do you squeeze it out of the veggie with a food processor? Sounds like yor diet is a great plan. Good luck and good health!

      Wow Nell, I love your writing, so clear and easy to read. And I completely agree with lots of things you've said, including how we go to the doctor's with our random aches and pains and expect them to know exactly why we're getting them, and how to cure us. It's more complicated than that, (and most of the time they will probably just suggest painkillers, which just mask the pain and are not a "cure" at all).

      I read that story too about the lady who cured herself of her ills by changing her diet, and I was thinking, "I actually like beetroot juice, so I could definitely do that!". I haven't done it so far, but your hub may well inspire me to start drinking it.

      One question, do you buy your beetroot juice ready-made, or do you make it yourself with beetroots and a juicer (or by some other means? - Don't know much about juicing!)

      Awesome Nell! I am like you, been a bit sluggish and not eating as well as I should, and I know it is time, or past time to make some changes in my diet and overall health. I have never been one to like beets, as they are so very bitter to me. But if one can add something, as you did, to change the taste, I may can handle it. You look great to me in your photo! Keep up the good work and I hope it helps your back to feel better too.

      Up and more and sharing.

      Enjoy your Sunday,

      Such a pretty color juice! I like to throw it into green smoothies. A bit of broccoli, some watermelon, etc. and it's yummy. Veggie smoothies and juices are such a great way to boost energy. Good luck with the diet!

    • Jackie Lynnley profile image

      Jackie Lynnley 3 years ago from The Beautiful South

      I actually went on a trip to buy beets fresh one day and did not like the looks so decided to look somewhere else and that is the last I thought of them! lol I think it was the magnesium I was after and something good I read on them but your writing is convincing, I will for sure get some. I imagine if we are trying different good things that every other day may even be often enough, you think? Or maybe just a smaller amount of beet root added to my already juicing? I do love beet and eat canned but I would imagine canned food has little if any benefit.

      Well, OK you sold me. Thanks!

      It does have some amazing health effects. Unfortunately, beets are one of those vegetables that make me very sick if I eat them. Or even if I just smell them. I'll have to pass on this one, but I will pass on your wonderful research to those who like beets! Great hub!

    • Jodah profile image

      John Hansen 3 years ago from Queensland Australia

      Great information Nell. I love beetroot. We eat them regularly in our diet, but i have never drank the juice. You've encouraged me to try that. The usual way to eat beetroot is to buy it in a can covered in vinegar, and although that's ok, we usually buy fresh beets, then boil and skin them. Eat them hot with a little butter and they are beautiful, not bitter at all.

      Hi Nell, hope it goes well for you and you see, real sustained health benefits from incorporating beetroot into your diet. I wrote a hub about it and tried it for a while, but because I really don't like the taste I stopped fairly soon. Maybe I'll give the supplements a try. When are the healthy things going to start tasting as good as chocolate lol!

      Guess I have to look for beetroot juice when I go shopping. I couldn't answer your poll because I fall somewhere between the cracks (getting harder to do as I get larger) but my answer wouldn't fit.

      I'm certainly willing to try after reading how quickly it has helped you. Anything is worth a try if its going to help you.

      I love the way you write and have to say you are looking well.

      Voted up, useful, funny, and interesting.

    • bravewarrior profile image

      Shauna L Bowling 3 years ago from Central Florida

      Nell, I'll have to give this a try. People don't think they like beets but that's probably because they've only eaten picked beets from a jar. Yuck! I don't like those either. Real beets taste completely different, in fact they're a tad on the sweet side.

      I've gotten bloated (fat) in the stomach, too and often have heartburn that starts down low. I'm very regular in the bowel department, but still have a huge gut that I've never had until the last couple of years.

      I'm willing to give this a try. For those of us who do not own juicers, how else can we juice beets? Would it work in a blender? Do we need to add water?

      Donna Hilbrandt 3 years ago from Upstate New York

      I love beets! Juiced, in smoothies, roasted, cooked, etc. I haven't met a beet I didn't like. Juicing is supposed to be very good for us. Have you watched "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead"? You can watch it online. I'm off to make a smoothie for lunch. Too bad I don't have any beets in the house.

      Great hub Nell. I love beetroot in any form apart from pickled. One of my favourite juice recipes is 1 carrot, 1 apple and 1 beetroot. Delicious and very healthy. One thing I don't think anyone has mentioned and which could alarm new beetroot consumers - it can turn your urine and/or faeces red!

      I have never really tried this vegetable, but you have convinced me to try it soon. I remember my mother would served sliced beets as a side dish, I never really like it at the tme. Now, I am older and realize the benefits of eating beets is valuable, and I would most likely enjoy the taste.

      Hi moonlake, yes its best to mix it with something else, I usually dilute it with apple juice, on its own its a bit, well, earthy! lol! thanks for reading, nell

      I have a question Dr. Nell. Do beets count? Or is it just the roots that you're referring to. I love beets, so I'm hoping you will tell me that the beets have the same benefits as the roots. Anyhow, I will wait patiently for your answer:) Super hub and voted up and across (not funny) and will share, tweet, pin and more. - Audrey

      Hi Nell yes BeetRoots are great but if you want something that really 'knocks your socks off' try adding some celery and carrot juice !!!

      btw if possible I have been reliably informed that the mix is more potent done with vegies that are as fresh as can be and consumed immediately.

      Also leave the leaves on the beetroot to get the full goodness.

      Cheers Nell

      I love beetroots and include them in my diet. This sounds like a great idea, wishing you all the best with this diet and I hope it works wonders for you.

      I'm delighted to have found out from this informative hub that beetroot has been medically certified as one of the diets to lower blood pressure and aid digestion. Thanks!

      This is a great article on beet root juice Nell Rose. Although I am well aware of all the health benefits it offers, it's hard for me to get use to the taste. Like don't drink it very often. Thumbs up on your hub.

      Glad I came across this hub, Nell Rose, due to re-circulation. I love beets so I can't imagine not loving beetroot juice. This was quite informative to see all of the benefits and healing properties with scientific studies to boot. I could certainly use the healthy boost. Voted up, useful, and interesting.

      Hi Audrey, sorry I didn't see the comments! lol! I am not sure to be honest! I just take it that's all of the beets, I didn't like them before, so just drinking the juice is great, but I have never read up on it, I will have to google it! lol! thanks again, nell

      When I had my juicer, I used to drink beet root juice. I'll have to get one again. I used to also make beet root salad but I got lazy lately. Time to put back beets again in our diet. Thanks for all the info.

      Hi aesta, I tend to use them in salads if I do forget to buy juice, to be honest I am not that keen on them! lol! but mixing them up with veg or salad is much better because it takes the taste away, thanks so much for reading, nell
