There are so many ben­e­fits to beet­root juice. Beets have an­tiox­i­dant and anti-in­flam­ma­tory prop­er­ties, con­tain brain func­tion­boost­ing vi­ta­min B3 – and I also love how they taste in this drink.

The colour al­ways pops out at me when I make beet­root juice, I love it. But that vi­brant colour comes at a price! I used to avoid us­ing beets be­cause they are so messy to pre­pare but I got over that be­cause I know they are packed full of good­ness. To avoid red­stained fin­gers from pre­par­ing beets, wear kitchen gloves. Or just han­dle them quickly with bare hands and wash your hands with warm soapy wa­ter im­me­di­ately af­ter­wards.
