Frankly, I love juicing beets, and I’m not sure if it’s just me, but every time I feel tired or feel a cold coming on, beet juice really helps me get over it quick. Some people would say maybe it’s just a placebo. I do not care. I believe it. So I’m making an article especially for this special vegetable in my life.
So here’s some nutritional data about beets;
Beets contain calcium, iron, sulfur, potassium, beta carotene, choline and vitamin C.They are high in manganese, an important mineral for brain function. Beets are also high in minerals that strengthen the liver and gallbladder, and are the building blocks of blood cells and all cells in the body. Beets are known for their ability to cleanse the blood of impurities. We all have toxins in our body. They need to be cleaned up on a regular basis. Beet juice to the rescue.
Beet juice is super concentrated, so I strongly suggest you dilute with water or other juice.
Purchase firm, rock hard beets. Beets can be stored for months in the refrigerator.
Favorite Beet juice recipes:
Carrot, spinach and beets
5-6 leaves of Romaine or other leaf lettuce
3-4 spinach leaves
Buy organic carrots if you can. If you cannot find organic carrots peel the skin off the carrots. Clean and cut the beets into thin slices and wash. Wash and dry the other vegetables. Juice half the carrots and beets, and then you can use the remaining carrots to help push the lettuce and spinach through the juicer machine.

Some of you may be wondering what type of juicer i use. Most people who enjoy drinking juices regularly prefer the high quality machines such as the Omega or the Green Star. I prefer the masticating machines since these machines make the highest quality juice. Most other machines destroy the vital enzymes and vitamins in the juice since they heat up the juice. I use the Omega VERT which has done me very well over the past 3 months. Prior to that i had a Green Star juicer. Both work great.
The masticating machines from Omega are known to keep the juice cool and to keep all the vital nutrients inside the juice after drinking. Believe me you can taste the difference, big time!
Many people have used juicing to cure their bodies of illnesses. Since most illnesses are due to a lack of nutrition in the body, juicing beets and other vegetables can help cure dis-eases.

There are actually many people who have inspirational stories of detoxing their bodies and overcoming cancer, obesity, diabetes and other dis-eases.
