Beetroot is a good vegetable for women and growing children. Naturally beetroot is sweet in taste. In Some countries they take sugar from beetroot. Regular intake of beetroot can improve the hemoglobin level. Beetroot is a great source of nitrates. Eating vegetables rich in nitrates could help to reduce blood pressure.
Beetroot contains large amounts of soluble fibers, flavanoids and betacyanin. Betacyanin gives beetroot its purplish-red colour. Beetroot is a good anti oxidant. It helps to reduce the oxidation of LDL cholesterol and does not allow it to deposit on the walls of the artery. This protects the heart from heart attacks and stroke and reduces the need for medication. Beetroots are packed with fiber and act as great natural laxatives. So it helps to reduce constipation. Regular intake of beetroot boosts brain power and gives energy.
