The September SUPERFOOD is Beets! Beets are more than pretty vegetables. Their color comes from betalains – antioxidants with a variety of potential health benefits. Vitamins, potassium and fiber round out beets’ benefits.
Beets offer two edible parts – the root, which we typically think of when eating beets, and the greens, which are delicious in salads. Beets are a unique source of phytonutrients called betalains, which has been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support.
