Beet It

Beets can improve athletic performance, help fight inflammation, lower blood pressure, support detoxification, lower your your risk for heart failure and stroke, help combat cancer and improve brain neuroplasticity. Many of the benefits of beets are due to their high nitrate content. Your body converts nitrates into nitric oxide, which enhances oxygenation and has a beneficial impact on your circulatory system. Beets are high in sugar, so if you’re insulin resistant, diabetic, or are in the initial stages of ketosis, fermented beets or beet juice may be preferable, as virtually all sugar is eliminated during the fermentation process!
