Vegetable Juicing Recipes – The Benefits of Beet Juice

The three most notable health benefits of drinking beet juice on a regular basis are detoxification, blood building and increased stamina.

Use a vegetable juicer to make Beet Juice and increase your physical stamina

1) Beet juice contains antioxidants that actually stimulate liver cells to function at their best.

The liver is our main detoxification organ that deals with processing pesticides, drugs, toxic heavy metals and other harmful substance that are found in our blood stream as a result of modern diets and lifestyle.

As a result of this bombardment, some liver cells are knocked out of whack and cannot perform as they should. A catch 22.

So drinking beet juice has been proven to help the liver regenerate and in turn help detoxify all the cells in the body!

2) Beet juice is an excellent source of dietary iron and iron is essential for building red blood cells.

This makes beet juice a great option for menstruating women, those with anemia or for anyone who has lost a lot of blood for some reason.

3) Beet juice is great for boosting physical stamina.

One study conducted at Northumbria University, UK, found that giving a group of cyclists a daily beet juice for 14 days increased the overall amount of time they could cycle by 12%!

Researchers believe that the high concentration of nitrates in beet juice is at least partly responsible for this effect.

Nitrates slow down the speed at which oxygen is burned in our muscles, allowing the muscles to work for longer before burning out.

Drinking Beet Juice

For some of us the powerful detoxification effects of juicing beets can be a little too intense.

If you experience any nausea, headaches or a serious loss of energy then just dial back the amount of beets in your vegetable juicing recipes to a manageable level and gradually increase.
