I was intrigued to try Beet It – an organic beetroot juice. It comes in a 1-litre bottle or three types of shots – Organic, Sport and Ginger.
I tried the Beet It organic shot and boy did it pack a punch, but I liked it. I’m keen to try the organic beetroot juice straight up next.
Beetroots are packed with antioxidants and contain potassium, magnesium and iron as well as vitamins A, B6 and C, and folic acid.
Research has shown that beetroot can help reduce blood pressure as well as its associated risks such as heart attacks and strokes. This is because the high content of nitrates in beetroot produce a gas called nitric oxide in the blood which widens blood vessels and lowers blood pressure. A daily dose of 250ml of beetroot juice or 1 to 2 cooked beetroot (approx. 100g) can help dramatically reduce blood pressure and its associated risks.
– Love Beetroot
The regular juice would be ideal to add to homemade fresh fruit juices such as Dr Emerson’s daily juice.
Beet It is available from independent grocers and health food stores.
