There’s a lot to be said for the humble beet, an easy-to-grow garden vegetable. Enjoy them juiced raw, cooked, pickled or fermented, beets have a wide range of health benefits. The nutrients they contain fight inflammation, lower blood pressure and help you detoxify. Beets have also been shown to lower your risk failure and stroke, and may even help combat cancer.

Your body transforms nitrates into nitric oxide, which enhances oxygenation and has a beneficial impact on your circulatory and immune systems.

In these cases or if you are in the beginning stages of ketosis fermented beets and beet juice may be better, as nearly all sugar is eliminated during the fermentation process.
