Beets Health Benefits
Beets are a low-calorie, high-nutrition vegetable. Particularly high in manganese (a serving of beets provides 16% of your recommended daily intake), folate (20% RDI), and potassium (9%), beets also provide Vitamin C, iron, magnesium, fiber, and 1.7 grams of protein!
Beets have been shown to significantly lower blood pressure. This is probably due to their high concentration of dietary nitrates, which, when converted to nitric oxide, dilate blood vessels — leading to a drop in blood pressure.
Pigments found in beets, called betalains, may help fight inflammation. Beets health benefits may also include improved digestion, supporting brain health by increasing blood flow to the brain, and supporting weight loss and cancer prevention. (Source: Healthline)

Beets Health Benefits Get Rave Reviews from Our Customers
“Everything is organic, locally sourced, and crafted with purpose and attention to detail. Feel like you need to cleanse your ephemeral shell? Go for their detoxinator juice (carrot, apple, beet, ginger, lemon) or liver cleanse shot (beet, ginger, lemon) coupled with their rainbow bowl + miso tahini dressing (greens, avocado, shredded carrots, fermented beets, cucumbers, sprouted beans, sprouts). I always leave Nourish feeling great — not only because this place is the epitome of “eating clean” — but also because I’m supporting a business who really cares about local farmers. For example, everything fermented that they sell is sourced from the same local guy who hand-pickles organic sauerkraut, beets, and ginger carrots with an incredibly complex blend of spices.” — Amalia D. on Yelp
