Detox Juice Recipes Juice Recipes Google+0Facebook0Twitter0Pinterest7LinkedIn0On the hunt for simple, creative and very nutritious beet juice recipes? Who can blame you. After all, beets have been making their rounds in the news, being hailed for everything from their longevity benefits to their ability to fight cancer. And it’s no wonder – these vibrantly-hued plants come with a heap of health benefits. Beets contain an ample amount of well-known antioxidants such as vitamin C and manganese, but much of their antioxidant powers come from a lesser-known antioxidant called betalains. These potent antioxidants are responsible for giving beets their characteristically bright-red color and have been shown to help fight cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and inflammation in the body. These helpful little antioxidants also support cellular detoxification and cleansing in your body. Through a process called phase 2 cleansing, toxic substances in our body are chemically combined with a small nutrient group which helps to neutralize the toxins and make them water-soluble so that they can be flushed out with your urine. An extra plus? Beets add a bright brilliance to every juice you add it to. Get your share of these scarlet beauties with our favorite beet juice recipes below!
