Beetroot Juice For Liver Detox

Beets provide some impressive health benefits, they are good sources of folate, potassium, vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants, as well as nitrates.

And what’s the healthiest way to consume beetroots? You will get the maximum nutrients when consumed raw. So making a beetroot smoothie (the fiber is great for colon cleanse and liver detox) or a beetroot juice is ideal. Also you could alternative it with some carrot juice as well.

Beet Apple Carrot Lemon Ginger Juice Benefits

There is a lot of research that shows drinking beet juice (beetroot juice) along with carrot, apple ginger and lemon may benefit your health. Here’s how:

Helps Lower Blood Pressure

There are numerous studies that show beetroot, delivered as a juice supplement significantly reduce systolic and diastolic blood pressure – all attributed to the activity of nitrite converted from the ingested nitrate. 

Reduce Inflammation

Beetroot is one of the few vegetables which is very rich in antioxidants, in particular a group of highly bioactive pigments known as betalains, which display potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and and chemo-preventive activities against many pathologies related with chronic inflammation such as liver disease, arthritis and even cancer.

The effects were comparable or greater than some anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen. Beets have also been found effective for period cramps with excessive blood loss by supplying oxygen and iron content in the blood.

This Immune Boosting Tonic is another great remedy for those looking to reduce inflammation and boost their immune system.

Prevents Anemia

Due to their high amount of folic acid (vitamin B9) and presence of Iron, beets help stimulate the production of red blood cells thus balancing hemoglobin levels.

An interesting fact: the red pigments of beets lose their color when combined with Iron. Therefore you can verify if you have low hemoglobin levels (anemia) by consuming some beets. And if you experience very red urine it could be an indication of iron deficiency.

Improves Oral and Gut Microbiome

According to a new study drinking beet juice promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria associated with healthier blood vessels and brain function and also showed a reduced level of bacteria linked to disease and inflammation. The results suggest that adding nitrate-rich foods to the diet by drinking beetroot juice for just 10 days, can substantially alter the oral microbiome for the better. A healthier microbiome consequently means a stronger immune system.

Boosts Athletic Performance

Beetroot juice helps increases the flow of oxygen throughout your body and strengthens the muscle contraction thus increasing your athletic endurance and performance. According to the study, for best results the beetroot juice should be consumed 90 min before athletic effort, since the peak value of nitrate occurs within 2–3 hours after ingestion.

Improves Liver Function And Skin Appearance

Beets have liver protective effects and can ameliorate liver injury through the interruption of apoptosis (cell death). Studies show that the consumption of beet juice exhibits increased activity of phase II detoxifying enzymes which play an important role in antioxidant defense. By helping the liver detoxify you can simultaneously improve and clear the skin.

Beet Juice Ingredients

All ingredients should be fresh and raw (preferably organic):

  • Beets (you can also add the green tops if you like, for extra nutrients).
  • Carrots (don’t use baby carrots, they are actually regular cut carrots, washed in a chlorine solution for longer storage).
  • Apple (any apple you like, choose sweeter apple for a more sweet taste).
  • Lemon (the juice only).
  • Ginger (peeled or unpeeled it’s up to you).

Why Add Lemon To The Beetroot juice?

The Vitamin C form lemon juice will increase the bioavailability (assimilation) of iron present in beets.

Why Add Carrots to The Beet Juice?

Simultaneous use of iron (present in beets) and vitamin A (present in carrots) seems to be more effective to prevent iron deficiency (anemia) than the use of these micronutrients alone.

Why Include Apples in The Beetroot Juice?

Apples are a good source of several antioxidants, including quercetin, catechin, and chlorogenic plus they are packed with Vitamin C, K, and potassium. Some of the antioxidants in apples may also slow down absorption of sugars present in the juice, which prevents any sugar spike.

Why Use Ginger In The Beet Juice?

Ginger has powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-diabetic properties as it able to lower blood sugar levels. Moreover ginger is a powerful anti-bacterial and antiviral agent which further improves the juice potency. Ginger will also help with nausea if you have a difficult time drinking vegetable juices.

Are Beet Powder Capsules As Good As Beet Juice?

Most of those health benefits mentioned in studied were achieved while consuming beet juice and not powders. Since the nutritional benefits tend to decrease from oxidation and longer storage, the best way to consume beets is raw and fresh. Even if you choose to consume freeze dried beet powder (always check for supplement quality), some nutrients are lost during the freeze-drying process. But still it’s better than nothing.

Best Juicer For Beetroot

The best juicer for beetroot is the one which has the ability to extract the highest amounts of nutrients, preserve enzymes and with less oxidation in the juicing process. And for this, masticating juicers are often considered the best, as they yield a dryer pulp and more juice (they are also referred as cold press juicers or slow juicers). The vertical masticating juicers are probably the most convenient as they have a compact design and will occupy less space in your kitchen.

How To Make Beetroot Juice With A Blender

If you don’t want to invest in a good juicer, you can make the beetroot juice with a blender (I use my Ninja blender, because I prefer a glass pitcher not plastic), a nut milk bag and a tall container.

Tips For Making Juice With Beets

  1. Use fresh organic fruits and vegetables.
  2. The addition of apple and lemon cuts the edge of bitter veggies and makes the juice taste better but try not to add other fruits. Mixing fruits and veggies can cause gas, because fruit digests faster and uses different digestive enzymes. 
  3. Add some greens, the calcium in greens will get easily absorbed when combined with iron and Vitamin C present in the juice.
  4. For an easier juice prep, try to cut and peel your beets, carrots and apples in advance and store in a closed container. Proper storing will ensure they stay fresh longer.
