Beets Cleanse the Body

By: Carol Giambri

Are you wondering why I believe you should be adding beets into your body and enjoy feeling healthier and cleaner inside out?  The proof can be as obvious as less skin problems or constipation.  The problem I see with most is that their body is like a "dumping" station.

The dump….

We put anything and almost everything into our body and then we come up with our body having a feast as well as sickly.  It can be described as a playground.  Whether it be your skin or your face it's time to fall in love with beets.

Love your beets…

When you read that beets are protectors against strokes, coronary artery disease, act as anti-aging benefits and lowers cholesterol levels wouldn't you get excited?

Beets a great friend to have…

If you eat 3 meals a day and 7 days you eat that is 21 meals you eat in one week.

If you have 2 bowel movements only a day, then you are leaving one somewhere.  In one week you left behind 7 meals festering and partying in your gut.  If you do that for 4 weeks you have 28 meals hanging around.  Over a year which is 52 weeks to a year 52 meals hang out….

We wonder why people get sick…

Can it be that the playground that is filled with all the left overs from not being taken out of your "dumping station" is causing health problems? Maybe your first sign can be lots of pimples on your face.  I can't say or promise but I can speculate that is a possibility.  Or, more familiar may be constipation in all ages of people. Sadly, even young innocent ones eat what is given to them.  Where's the beets?

Health benefits of beets

  • Beet greens (tops) are sources of carotenoids, flavonoid anti-oxidants, and vitamin A. Vitamin A helps maintain healthy mucus membranes and skin and is essential for vision. Vegetables rich in flavonoids helps protect from lung and oral cavity cancer development.  Of course any thing is still possible.

  • The root contains niacin (vit.B-3), pantothenic acid (vit.B-5), pyridoxine (vit.B-6) and carotenoids. Also minerals like iron, manganese, and magnesium. It is a good source of potassium. Potassium in turn lowers the heart rate. 

  • Low in calories and little fat with fiber, minerals and vitamin properties.

Kinds of beets…

Red is probably the popular ones you buy

Gold or orange are not as easily found but are more delicious to me then red.

Orange and Red Beets – organic best

Choggia looks like a candy cane, sometimes called candy cane beet, when cut opened with round circles of red and white. 

Some signs that you may want to try beets…

Is constipation bothering you, depression, liver problems, sometimes gall bladder part of your daily health challenges?

Long live the Liver…

My happy dog gets ground organic liver but for humans I am talking about the vegetable called beets.

Beets are natural helpers for liver detoxing.  Fresh is best eating the whole vegetable including roots and leaves. 

One of the best natural aids for liver detoxification are beets. They are very nutritious and a great liver cleanser. Also, you get benefit from the entire beet – greens and all. Always organic is best. Choose beets that still have the greens attached.

Beet greens are very good for liver detoxification.They can be added into salad cut up or in making vegetable juice with vegetables. 

Warning….

If your feces is red the day after having beets or their greens it's normal.

Reflecting and Acting…

Are you willing to give beets a try? For kids and adults less is best.  For dogs, I even given her fresh vegetables including some diced up beets and other vegetables. Plant an organic garden with your kids. Enjoy fresh.

Carol, the only beets I've eaten is in a can. Looks like I'm missing out. Great info. Would love to have some recipes for beets.

Carol Giambri December 29, 2011 at 9:11 am

Hi Claudia, Wow, I think you will always go "fresh" now. Thanks for your suggestion.  What you do with canned you can do with fresh, but the taste will be enhanced as the fresher the better.

Great information on Beets and also the digestion/excretion of the food that we eat! Detoxification is so important to our short and long-term health! …HAPPY NEW YEAR! …Hughie :)

I've never liked beets, but now that I think about it, I don't think I've even tried them since I was a child… sounds like I've been missing out. My parents grow them in their garden every year, so I definitely have access… I guess it may be time to give them a try! Thanks Carol!

Jennifer Luna December 29, 2011 at 12:00 pm

I Love this information. I also love beets, but don't eat them every week. I will start putting them into my weekly meals, and I will include in my blog information. Keep up the good information.

Jennifer Bennett December 29, 2011 at 3:59 pm

Great article!  I have never tried beets, but it looks like I need to!  I think beets might be something ti incorporate into my life in 2012!

My husband loves beets…not me! But you have convinced me to give them a try! With all those benefits it will be worth it for sure! Thanks Carol!

Scott Hay December 30, 2011 at 1:24 pm

Great article and I am persuaded to try beets now…thank you!

Donovan Grant December 30, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Hi Carol, we love the beets in our house. My wife has been force feeding us for several years now and we actually look forward to it! Great to know that there are so many good reasons to eat the beets. Cheers, Donovan

Carol Giambri December 31, 2011 at 8:30 am

HI Donovan, Lucky you that your wife is helping you all eat and be healthier.  So many reasons to eat them and other fruits and vegetables.  Thanks for sharing.

Carol Giambri December 31, 2011 at 8:32 am

Scott, Glad to "twist" your arm to eat more beets.  A little goes a far way!!!  Enjoy!!!

Denny, I'm not a big fan of beets myself but knowing the benefits a little more at a time till I become a lover. Thanks for sharing.

My fave is Beets, Carrot, Celery, Parsley & Ginger juice.  It's HEAVENLY.

Carol Giambri January 7, 2012 at 11:58 pm

I’m with you Stephen. I love doing back to basics living and drinking without the drunk side effects. Okay, can get some detox side effects, but those are great! I believe it’s heavenly. I can taste it now!

when adding to a salad, do you cook your beets or eat them raw?

Carol Giambri April 9, 2012 at 3:07 pm

Cindy,
Raw is my way of eating and juicing it too. Surely not a lover of beets yet but my liver embraces them. Try different colors for your meals too.

Carol Giambri October 17, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Thanks for the great beet information. I even give my dog a little fresh, organic beets sometimes. She varies her veggie intake. All is good.
