The betalains in beets help fight inflammation at a cellular level. Betalains are also powerful antioxidants and promote anti-cancer activity. Additionally, the nitrates in beets can aid in athletic performance, that’s why I like making and drinking this recipe with beet juice one hour before working out.
Amongst other benefits, beets are known to help lower blood pressure. Oh, beet juice gives your poop a scary reddish tint (this is normal).
This juice recipe tastes great too. The apple adds a bit more sweetness, and the mint and lime give it a refreshing fresh punch.
