Red Beets and Liver
By happyday on August 11, 2010
European has long experiences with red beet that is a very popular vegetable and used for variety of cuisines.
Red beets are not only a normal vegetable but also a remarkable nutrition food. Red beet’s rich reds add a beautiful color to a dish as well as nourishment for our body. Red beets are rich in phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, vitamin A, niacin, biotin, iron, and folic acid.
Red beet, a powerful builder of blood, has high quality and more iron than other vegetables and is extremely useful in the anemia.
Red beet is among the highest vegetable contributors of folic acid, which prevents certain types of birth defects and cancer and can protect against heart attacks.
The dietary nitrate contained in red beets can help reduce the blood pressure and the risk of adverse cardiovascular events. Beetroot juice boosts stamina and helps exercise for up to 16% longer because of a reduction in oxygen uptake and making exercise less tiring.
Potassium contained in red beets is essential for all cellular functions. Along with sodium, it regulates water balance and acidity-alkalinity balance in the blood and tissues.
Red beet pigments boost higher levels of protective enzymes than other beets, and help detoxify potential cancer-causing substances and purge them from the body.
Research found that beetroot can be useful to prevent cancer. Betalains, a new class of dietary cationized antioxidants, may provide protection against certain oxidative stress-related disorders.
The high concentration of betaine in red beets, helps protect against fatty deposits in the liver and helps cellular reproduction. Betaine also help reduce potentially toxic levels of homocysteine and support cardiovascular health.
If you don’t like cooked and pickled red beets, then may consider the red beet juice or red beet juice products. The nutrients in a juice are much easier to assimilate than synthetic nutrients. The iron in beet juice, in particular, is noted for being more easily assimilated than other forms of iron supplements.
