Health Benefits Of Juicing Beets

Health is important in a person’s life, and taking care of one’s health as well the health of the loved ones is also essential. Different herbs and food items, fruits, vegetables have different significant effects on one’s health. While fruits and veggies are mostly effective when taken in raw, there is yet another form in which they can be consumed-juicing.

Fresh juices without the use of essence and flavors are very healthy. For instance a juice of tomatoes is an important intake so as to prevent the increased risk of prostate cancer with increasing age. Cooking tomatoes will allow the breakage of the cell wall and thus leak out the constituents of the cell wall containing lycopene, which is a powerful anti oxidants preventing cancers. The other most widely used fruit is the orange; it helps the heart patients by decreasing the programmed cell death (apoptosis).

Each fruit juice brings a wide variety of nutrition for the person. One such juice is beet. This particular veggie mixes well with other fruits and veggies and result in a tasty and pleasant flavor. Adding beet to your dietary intake might put a pressure on your pocket; the benefits that will come out as a consequence will outweigh the pocket money.

Now that beet juice is renowned and considered so healthy, it is necessary to reflect on the positive sides of this juice. Here it goes:

Constipation

Is your stomach upset? Are you unable to pass your stool easily? Beet juice is here to your rescue. Add this juice with any of your favorite juices and gulp it down in one go. Beet root juices are rich in cellulose content. Thus, the presence of fiber will ease the irritable bowel movements. In fact beet root juice is the most popular remedy for curing constipation troubles. Moreover, while this juice may help cure this problem, do not get panic-stricken if you find out that your urine or stool has turned red. That is simply the color of the beet juice showing up.

Prevents birth defects

Beet root is filled with thiamin, vitamin C, vitamin B6, riboflavin, potassium, magnesium. It also contains folic acid abundantly. While other aforementioned elements in this vegetable help in cleaning of the livers, gall bladders and lymphatic system, the folic acid is needed for proper formation of the baby. Eye defects can be cured by this veggie. When you consume beet root juice in raw form, then you are nourished with caretenoids. These include lutein and zeaxanthin. Science has found evidences that this juice helps in the retinal formation.

Apart from ensuring proper retinal formation through caretonoids, it also deals with liver defects. Because of the presence of the compound called betaine, the benefits of beet juice are doubled. This chemical improves the bile duct and gall bladder which also lead to the production of detoxifying enzymes in the liver.

Anemia is easily cured by beet root juice. How is it done? It takes place largely as a result of the anti iron rich properties present and vitamins that promote blood formation.

Beet root is rich in sugar thus it must be diluted for consumption. The juice must be used in less sugary form. This juice also contains minerals that can be used for proper neural formation.

Cancer protection

Studies have found proof that beet root juice can also help to counter cancerous symptoms. The presence of betcyanin prevents the building up of cancerous tumors and it further detoxifies the body and prevents the formation and entry of harmful chemicals to the immune system. Success has been found in cancer patients of leukemia, spleen, liver, skin and others with this juice intake.

The juice also aids in the prevention of heart disease and it is widely used in St. Mary’s hospital located in the United Kingdom because of its benefits for the heart.

Juices of every fruit are remarkably good for the person. Patients are usually recommended juices when they are physically weak because these juices help relieve nausea as well as they give a person sufficient strength. This is why they are highly recommended. Consume these fruits juices either raw or cooked; they are only going to reap benefits. Nevertheless, you must know that over consumption of juices becomes a problem for the human body.

The beet root can be eaten without the juice too. It is delicious when eaten cooked and steamed. Too much consumption could affect kidney, therefore, limits must be predefined when consuming it.

      Thanks so much shruti sheshadri! Beets are sometimes forgotten and overlooked on the vegetable shelf, but packed with all those vitamins and minerals they should not be. Besides-- they are such a pretty color when juiced, it can brighten your day just looking at it!
