Drinking beet juice is a fantastic way to help your body absorb as much of the nutrients found in beets as possible. The juice of this vegetable is rich in magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese, selenium, copper, potassium, and phosphorous. It contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, and folic acid, many of which are incredibly effective antioxidants that can help to prevent premature aging and keep your mind, and body, healthy.

Drinking beet juice daily can:

  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Prevent heart attacks
  • Prevent strokes
  • Treat anemia
  • Prevent precancerous lesions and tumors in the esophagus
  • Regulates the digestive system
  • Improves metabolism
  • Increases the amount of oxygen carried in the red blood cells, improving stamina

For the best results, stick to about four ounces a day of straight beet juice or more if it’s mixed with other fruits or vegetables. The concentration of oxalic acid in beet juice can potentially increase your risk of developing kidney stones if consumed in excess.
