Potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, iron; vitamins A, B & C; beta-carotene, beta-cyanine; folic acid. These are but a few of the many nutrients, vitamins and minerals that can be found in beets and beet greens.
Beets also contain a liver protective quality which makes them very popular in any detoxing protocol.
Choose from a variety of different beets.
The most common are the red beets which makes a beautifully colored juice.
Golden beets can also be used for those who are not fond of the earthy flavour of the red beets.
In the video below, i made two seperate juices one using red beets and one using the golden beets…ENJOY!
