Here is a juice that’s not only beautiful to look at, it’s delicious and so good for you too. Because they grow underground, root vegetables such as beets are rich in minerals. Our bodies need these minerals for many functions from turning food into energy, to healthy nerve functions and even cell growth and renewal.
The shape and color of beets remind us of the heart, and for good reason. Beets support healthy muscle function, due much in part to its nitrate content and studies like this one from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, show that beet juice may help prevent/improve pumping power of the heart.
The Deep Rooted Love juice, featured in my book Joyful Juicing also contains oranges and carrots, known for their vitamin c content and immune system boosting properties. With beets, a little bit goes a long way, so we’ve added some filtered water for more hydration and cleansing power.
