10 Reasons to Eat Beets

By
beets

The Beet is usually not included in the list of favorite foods by most people. But if you seek better health then you need to make one exception, beet. The health benefits of beets help improve the energy levels as it is an excellent source of iron. Beets help in making the immune system strong and safeguard against cancerous growths. Once you are aware about all the health benefits of beets, then I am very sure that you will not mind having this red vegetable. Plus, you can have beet raw in the form of salad, no cooking required.

The health benefits of beets are:

  1. One of the most amazing health benefits of beets is that it has no trans-fats and no saturated fats. Hard to believe, but true! It is extremely low in calories as well. Hence, it fills your stomach and its slight sweet taste satiates your sweet tooth also. This food helps in reducing the sugar craving and benefits your health in many ways.
  2. Easy to eat: Beets can be purchased from the market and stored for days in the refrigerator. Simply, slice couple of beets and store them in the refrigerator. Every time you feel hungry or feel the need to munch something, have the beets you saved earlier. No cooking required and cold beets taste good as well.
  3. Beets are rich in carbohydrates and it is great way to quickly energize your body. Other processed foods are also high in carbohydrates but they are a poor source of energy. Beets are more or less like an energy food or fuel for the body.
  4. Beet is a great source of minerals as they are rich in sodium, calcium, phosphorous, iron as well as magnesium. Beets also have dietary fiber in it. It also contains noticeable amounts of niacin, Vitamin C as well as Vitamin A.
  5. Beets have folic acid in it. Folic acid is important for the proper growth of new cells. Folic acid is required for the health of pregnant women and someone who requires physical healing. Many people take supplements that have folic acid in it, however, taking the health benefits of beets everyday will fulfill your folic acid need that too in a natural way. Yes, at times taking supplements is essential for health, however, if you can have something natural and avoid that supplement will be good for your health.
  6. Research has indicated that the health benefits of beets are helpful in preventing several kinds of cancer, mainly colon cancer.
  7. Research has also indicated that having beets everyday helps in protecting the body from many heart problems.
  8. Beets are available in all the seasons. So whenever you want to have them you can get it from the grocery store. You do not have to wait for one full season for fresh produce before you can take the health benefits of beets.
  9. You can have beets in the raw form as well as boiled, steamed or sautéed forms. You can also have the juice of fresh beets. However the juice of beet has a very strong taste and may not be like by all, but beet juice is an excellent health tonic. You can mix beet juice with carrot juice and apple juice to reduce the strong taste.
  10. Beets are natural blood cleanser and colon cleanser.

    This is what you write above. Is this a joke? Who is your target audience? McDonald´s eaters?

    I am going to unsubscribe from your newsletter now. Wasting my time.

    • Deanna

      wow Jeanette, with such animosity you might as well not eat healthy, you are negating it with your hostility.

  • Barb

    it is not a waste of time to learn about the benefits fo food. We are what we eat and I love your emails and what you write about. Keep them coming.

  • Esther

    What jeanette meant is that she has known that beets, like most vegetables, are very low in fats (both bad fats and good fats) for many years. Or to put it another way, duh!

    She’s not learning anything.

  • Elsid

    Well what Jeanette needs to remember is this email/newsletter is for everyone – sometimes you will just have to put up with information that are targeted to the beginner – yes maybe that McDonald eater that has seen the light and decided to look for alternative foods that will improve their health.

  • Lois

    There’s nothing like a great reminder of all the foods that are good for you. I write a blog for my clients and it very often is about health and wellness. Sometimes I put in links to other sites and even though this information is basic, some people don’t know that. So lighten up Jeanette. It’s not just about you!

  • Emma

    I love beets, but usually only eat them when at a salad bar, because I thought they had to be prepared a certain way and I don’t cook much. It’s good to know that I can get them from the store and just slice them up to eat raw. Yes, I am a little ignorant, and appreciate your posts.

    • Mark Anthony Simmons

      RAW BEETS TASTE NOTHING LIKE THE BEETS WHICH HAVE BEEN CLEANED WITH TOPS CUT OFF, THEN YOU TAKE ALUMINUM FOIL AND WRAP THEM INDIVIDUALLY ( LIKE A HERSHEYS KISS ). yOU THEN PUT THEM IN THE OVEN AT AROUND 425 FOR ONE HOUR. FROM THERE YOU PUT THEM IN COOL WATER IN THE SINK AND THE SKINS PEEL RIGHT OFF. VOILA!! YOU NOW HAVE A PERFECT COOKED PUT. NOW SLICE THEM UP IN LET THEM SOAK IN A BALASIC VINEGAR/ RASPERRY , BALSAMIC GLAZE REDUCTION AND i ALSO ADD POMEGRANATE CONCENTRATE THEN LET THE BEETS SOAK OVER NIGHT IN MY SAUCE. THEY TASTE BETTER A DAY OR TWO LATER BECAUSE THE BEETS ARE NOW INFUSED WITH THE SAUCE. NEXT ADD
      GOAT CHEESE. AND YOU WILL BE IN HEAVEN

  • rudolf

    I am with Jeanette on this. Not only this is preaching to the converted, but the beets sensationalist statement makes beet somehow special, like other vegs are full of fats.
    and further it also makes saturated fats our enemy, which is misleading miss-concept.

    so 3 wrongs in 1 sentence, beats white house

  • Andrea

    Thanks for the info didn’t know that beets had all these health benefits… I always just thought they were good for people who were anemic as my sister and i were when we were little…. and instead of us going to the doctor my mother fed us with beets every chance she could get and it worked…. thanks for the great info didn’t know it also had all these other health benefits…. as for those who aren’t able to appreciate the info…. can’t please everyone….. and from those who do appreciate like me… thanks bunches…..

  • Ros

    My grandson in Australia hates beets ( like all children) How do you encourage children to eat beets. We are Chinese. tks

  • Lawrence

    Well, some facts I have experienced about beetroot. I suffered from Leukemia 10 years back, and in the process contracted T.B. Menigitis, this whole process cost me 8.5 months in hospital, 5months in bed at home and three months in a wheel chair. My weight dropped from 90 Kilos to 55 Kilos. In total it took me three years to recover. My family and children were called to my bedside 3 times to say there goodbuys as the doctors and nurses were sure I was dying each time. The last time my wife called a herbalist , who gave me 15000mgs of Vit C. I survived . When I left hospital I was put on a daily drink of 2 liters a day of Carrot and beet juice. it was remarkable how quickly I began to recover. I can tell you from personal experience Beetroot is seriously good for you, and it tastes real good with carrot and apple. Now be nice and Happy about this beetroot information. Lawrence.

  • Ernest

    I love beetroot and enjoy often in many forms: juiced, grated raw in salads, even just grated raw mixed with some sunflower or sesame seeds with a pinch of himalayan salt, a drizzle of good oil and few drops of apple cider or balsamic. Boiled or steamed. But a great way to enjoy it in winter or any time is to cut it in small cubes and roast it in olive oil, either by itself or with other vegetables in a vege roast. It is so sweet and delicious. Also roast it in thin slices and make chips with it. They are quite crunchy and quite a treat or a great topping on a salad…..

  • Joshua

    Ok so, ignorant towards the ‘Low Carb’ Beet, I think thats basing it off the fact that potatoes are more starchy ‘unhealthy’ and a beet is also a root vegetable. So an important factor I guess would be recognizing that its a low carb food, compared to another root veggie such as potato.

  • Shirley,

    I buy the canned beets are they as good for you ?

About Us

Thanks for visiting our site and taking your wellness seriously. Before we tell you about ourselves, let's explore what the BUZZ is all about...

The funny thing about societal movements or cultural shifts is that they often don’t happen all at once. They begin when an idea is formed and if it’s a good idea, it spreads. As it spreads it creates a “Buzz.” People begin talking about it, adding their own ideas, testing it, sharing it and creating momentum that can change the world.

The best ideas resonate within us, increase our vibration and align with what we know is true. This creates a buzz within each of us. And when we feel that, we want to share it with those we love, right?

The reason we created BeWellBuzz.com is to be a catalyst in creating and spreading the Buzz, dispelling dangerous myths, society norms and enlightening people that maybe there are better methods for them to live and be well.

But it’s people like you who are really responsible for the Buzz. Educating yourself is the first step, taking action and realizing your truth is the second. But the third step is when you spread the word and create the Buzz. That’s when change happens. Not just for you, but for all of us.

That’s why we’d like to thank you in advance for not only visiting and arming yourslef with great information but also sharing it with family and friends.

As with any advice on health, life or anything, put it to the test for yourself. If it doesn’t sound right, research it, try it or seek guidance. If it works for you and lets you live well, do it. Enlighten others, but don’t force your methods on them. Give them the tools to decide for themselves and let them choose, just as you did.

Together we are making a difference.

Namaste,
Larry & Oksana
