Beetroots, a superfood for your skin

Not only does adding beets into your food and drink add a gorgeous vibrancy, but beets have been harvested for years for their nutritional value. Beets are loaded with essential nutrients like fibre, vitamins, and minerals. It’s particularly rich in nitrates, which can help improve blood flow and lower blood pressure, making it a great ingredient for heart health.

Beetroot is also known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, thanks to compounds like betalains which help protect your cells from damage and reduce inflammation, potentially lowering the risk of chronic diseases. Plus, beetroot is great for your brain - the improved blood flow can enhance cognitive function and keep your mind sharp.

The most notable benefit and function of beetroot is its ability to support detoxification, as it stimulates liver function and helps flush out toxins. With its high fibre content, beetroot aids digestion, keeping your gut healthy and happy. A lot of athletes actually love beetroot for its ability to boost endurance and performance by enhancing oxygen utilisation, making workouts feel less strenuous, so if you ever are looking for a healthy pre-workout, this beetroot juice is a great option.

A TCM perspective on Beets

In TCM, beetroot is believed to invigorate the blood and support heart health due to its ability to move stagnant blood and enhance circulation. This improved blood flow is thought to help nourishes Yin and detoxifies the blood, aiding in menstrual cycles and reproductive health. 

It is also known to be beneficial for the liver, helping to detoxify and cleanse it, which in turn supports overall body detoxification. Its naturally sweet flavour is associated with the Earth element, which in TCM corresponds to the digestive system, including the spleen and stomach. This makes beetroot particularly good for nourishing these organs, aiding in digestion and absorption of nutrients, and promoting overall digestive health.

Beetroot's vibrant red colour is linked to the Fire element, which is connected to the heart and small intestine. Consuming beetroot is thought to support these organs, promote emotional well-being, and boost energy levels. Its cooling nature can also help to balance internal heat, making it a good choice for individuals experiencing heat-related conditions such as inflammation or agitation.

Drink up softies - it’s skincare

Our glow juice recipe is rich in essential nutrients like vitamins A and C, which are known for their skin-loving properties. Vitamin A helps to stimulate cell production, which keeps your skin looking youthful and fresh by promoting the turnover of new skin cells. Vitamin C, on the other hand, is a powerful antioxidant that helps to brighten the skin, reduce pigmentation, and boost collagen production, leading to firmer and more radiant skin.

The high levels of antioxidants in beetroot, such as betalains and anthocyanins, help to combat free radicals that can damage skin cells and accelerate ageing. These antioxidants protect the skin from environmental stressors, reduce inflammation, and promote a clear, even complexion. Beetroot in particular also contains silica, which supports healthy skin by aiding in collagen formation and strengthening connective tissues. This can help improve skin elasticity! With all of the detoxifying properties in this juice recipe, it will help to cleanse the body from within, flushing out toxins that can contribute to skin issues like acne and dullness.

Plus, beetroot's anti-inflammatory properties can help reduce redness and irritation, making it particularly beneficial for those who are in the sensitive or acne-prone skin club.
