Tasty and healthy Beets from Love Beets
Love Beets is an organic brand that celebrates everything beets. The farmers at Love Beets use organic methods to plan and grow the beets harvested with love. The beets are washed and sorted, eventually taken to a factory peeled and cooked. In this way, you get ready-to-eat beets, which are not only organic but also free from preservatives, gluten, and artificial colors.
There are various benefits of adding beets to your recipes. Some of them are as follows:
- Improves the function of the liver
Beets consist of a compound called betaine, which improves the function of the liver. And when the liver performs well, it helps the body digest, absorb, and process different types of food.
- Lowers bad cholesterol
Beets also consist of plant sterols or phytosterols, which are similar to cholesterol in structure. Phytosterols are known for competing with cholesterol in the body, eventually reducing the amount of cholesterol absorbed in the body.
- Decreases anemia and fatigue
Since the 16th century, beets have been given to people who are pale in order to build their muscles. This is because beets consist of high iron content, which can help people fight fatigue and anemia.
- Lowers blood pressure
The presence of potassium and nitrates in the vegetable means that it can help relax the blood vessels, flush out sodium from the body, and decrease blood pressure.
- Increases Stamina
Beets also improve the ability of the muscles, as it contains nitrates that relaxes the blood vessels and reduce the amount of oxygen required by muscles during exercise.
- Essential during prenatal care
Expecting mothers usually require folic acid in their diet, as it is essential for the development of the baby's spinal cord. According to research, women can get almost 70 percent of the recommended intake of folate from three baby beets alone.
