Juicing Beets to Cleanse the Blood & Promote Healthy Skin

Beets are packed full with nutrients that are essential for healthy glowing skin! They are blood and liver cleansers, and if you have read my e-book The Acne-Free Diet, you know that when curing skin conditions cleansing your  blood is key. Beets are very powerful and potent so its best to never use an entire beet in one juice. Their potency comes from the oxalic acid in them which helps to dissolve inorganic (bad) calcium deposits in the body. Because of this, consuming raw beet juice can help with the reversal of diseases like arthritis, heart disease, cancer, eye problems, varicose veins etc. which are all related to calcification–the accumulation of calcium salts in a body tissue. To sum it up: beets are very powerful. When calcium deposits are dissolved in the body, heavy metals, toxic chemicals, and even viruses are released, so it’s important to use the power of beets in moderation.

If you have oxalate-containing kidney stones or have had them, do not drink juices with beets. Beets are anti-inflammatory veggies that are rich in iron, potassium, niacin, copper and Vitamin C, in addition to manganese, magnesium, calcium, zinc, folic acid. Each of these nutrients are essential for beauty. Beets are very rich in iron, containing around 14% of the RDA and can help with the reversal of anemia, detoxifying the liver, combating high blood pressure, and lowering bad cholesterol. Not bad for a root veggie, huh? The best way to harness the power of beets is to consume them raw or juice them in combination with other veggies. You should never drink beet juice alone. I recommend sticking with a half of a large beet or juicing one small beet so you do not O.D. and overwhelm your body. If you prefer not to juice beets they are also great sliced or grated into salads. Whatever method you choose, keep beets in mind when you are detoxing, they are one of the veggies I pull out of my vegan superhero arsenal when things get serious. -XoXo Raw Girl
