Beetroots-the superfood for hair, skin, nails and brain!

by Abbie In the Tidepool June 05, 2017

Beets, beetroots for good skin, hair, nails over 50


We all know the #1 thing that influences the way our skin looks is what we put into our bodies (#2-staying out of the sun)! If you’re over 50, you may be wondering what you can do to return the youthful glow to your skin. 

Of course, I can recommend wonderful organic skin care treatments like ours at Parisian's Pure Indulgence. They will help you achieve this goal very nicely, but ultimately what we put in our bodies has more influence on our skin than what we put on it.

 

  Researchers are finding out more and more about the amazing anti-aging health benefits of a common garden vegetable – beetroot. 

Dermatologist, Dr. Mark Rosenburg reports, "It was found that eating beets, and drinking beet juice, can have some profound benefits to your skin, eyes, heart, and brain.  Beets are packed with very high concentrations of antioxidants, carotenoids, folate, fiber, iron, manganese, potassium and Vitamin C." 

"As a dermatologist, in addition to the general health-boosting properties of beets, I’m particularly impressed by their anti-aging skin benefits. In studies, it was shown that the high levels of folates and antioxidants can decrease the depth and severity of skin wrinkles by 60%!"

The best way to receive the amazing nutrients from beets is by juicing raw beetroots, including leafy stems. Those who don't care for the taste of beets will soon learn there are many ways to camouflage the beet flavor in juicing. A blend of beets, cucumber, ginger, and green apples (added pectin factor!) is not only delicious but incredibly nutritious. 

The wonders of beetroots are more than skin deep though.

We may be able to ward off early dementia by regularly incorporating beets into our diets.

Why? Beetroots contain magical natural chemicals called nitrates in high concentration. When you eat high-nitrate foods, good bacteria in the mouth turn nitrates into nitrite. Research has found that nitrites can help open up the blood vessels in the body, increasing blood flow. For this reason, beet juice can help improve blood flow to the brain which helps slow down age-related ailments like dementia.

"It's important to note two other areas of potential health benefits associated with beets: anti-cancer benefits and fiber-related benefits. The combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory molecules in beets makes this food a highly likely candidate for risk reduction of many cancer types. Lab studies on human tumor cells have confirmed this possibility for colon, stomach, nerve, lung, breast, prostate and testicular cancers," reports whfoods.org.

Remember, juicing with raw beets mixed with other vegetables taste great, unlike those nasty canned beets our Mom's made us eat as kids. So juice up!

Are you a beet fan or foe?
