Beetroot is an incredibly undervalued and underused vegetable. It is mostly eaten cooked and pickled as a condiment to hot-pot. Yet its greatest health benefits are derived from eating it raw or juiced. It is rich in plant compounds, vitamins and minerals essential to safeguard our health.

Being a powerful blood tonic and cleanser beetroot is valued for treating and fighting blood disorders and leukemia. It also makes an excellent treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome and postviral syndrome.

Beetroot is rich in carotene, essential for good eye health, especially age-related eye problems.

A good source of both soluble and insoluble fibre beetroot keeps the intestinal tract healthy and its high potassium contents makes it a natural diuretic.
