Beet roots and beet juice offer a wide variety of health benefits with heart healthy antioxidants and fiber along with other good for ya stuff. In particular, the Mini-Beet Cure has really taken off in recent years.
You can check out the Mini-Beet Protocol here.
Rich in B Vitamins, iron, other vitamins, and a host of powerful phytochemicals, beets offer a rather tasty boost to overall health and can be a potent natural cure for several conditions.
Natural Cures: Beet juice has been proven as a natural remedy for hypertension. Its nitrates and iron are good for healthy blood flow and blood components. Beets are also said to have strong anti-carcinogenic properties as well as the potential in detoxing of the liver and kidneys.
[YEA] One of my favorite balancing foods are beets. (I have yet to try the Mini Beet Protocol) at least once a week I will buy a bunch of organic beets at the local market...
I pressure cook them for 7 minutes (using one cup of water). I then drink this dark red water with a dash of vinegar. Do not discard!
Add a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar to the beets and also saute the greens with a little mustard powder and sweetened rice vinegar. This has a wonderful balancing effect, especially drinking the beet broth.
By the way...one of my most loved kitchen devices is my pressure cooker..it greatly speeds up cooking time and reduces energy costs.
