Updated: May 16, 2022

Despite their name, beets are incredibly nutritious. They contain zero calories and very little fat, and the root is rich in sugar and carbohydrates. Beets are best eaten during early spring and late fall, when they're in season. Here are some of their many health benefits. Enjoy! But, what do you need to know before eating them? What should you look for when choosing beets for your diet?

As a vegetable, beets are delicious raw or steamed. You can also roast, boil, or steam them to get the full benefits. You can even slice them into strips and serve them on salads. You can also juice them or pickle them. If you can't find fresh beets, don't worry; you can always make beet juice. A delicious, healthy beverage that is also rich in vitamins and minerals.

Beets are loaded with antioxidants and fiber. They also lower blood pressure, improve heart health, and boost energy. Beets also contain a range of other nutrients essential for a well-rounded diet. Beets are delicious, and you can enjoy them in salads, soups, and even as a side dish! If you're looking for more ways to incorporate beets into your diet, try these tips.

While beet juice does not contain the fiber of whole beets, it does provide a boost to your brain and athletic performance. You can also find beet juice in grocery stores, as well as powdered beet supplements. However, be sure to read the label on the supplement, as beets contain oxalates, which can cause kidney stones. However, they are harmless for most healthy people.

When buying beets, make sure you buy organically grown ones. Many commercially grown sugar beets are genetically engineered. These beets are heavily sprayed with Roundup, which is a highly controversial pesticide. Not only is Roundup toxic, it is also an antibiotic and an endocrine disruptor. It's better to pick cane sugar when purchasing beets if you're concerned about sourcing organic beets, and you'll be saving a lot of money. Beets are also loaded with folate, manganese, calcium, and zinc, and are a great source of dietary fiber.

Beet juice contains high levels of iron, which is essential for the development of red blood cells and prevention of anemia. It also contains vitamin C, which boosts iron absorption. During pregnancy, beets contain vitamin B folate, which helps develop the spinal column and reduces the risk of birth defects. If you have high blood pressure, you should consider increasing your beet intake to combat this risk factor.
