Beetroot: Health Benefits and Nutritional Value

  1. The main constituent of red beets or leaves is water; the fiber content is three percent and the carbohydrates are also present in a very small amount of eight percent. Beetroot contains vitamins A, B, C and folic acid. Beets also contain vegetable dyes. Athletes appreciate the blood circulation-stimulating effect of the beetroot because it increases endurance. The muscles are better supplied with oxygen, which benefits muscle building. The high percentage of fiber slows down the conversion of carbohydrates into glucose, causing blood sugar to rise only slowly. The fibers bind toxins and harmful cholesterol, which is then excreted in the stool. The color pigments and vitamin C help to detoxify the body, are anti-inflammatory, strengthen the immune system and may even protect against some cancers. In short, red beets are an excellent addition to a healthy diet.
