Benefits and Importance of Beet Juice
by Kevin Pederson
although it is said to be present in a form that is easy to assimilate.  

The whole beet family (remember sugar beet) is rich in easily digested
carbohydrates, even so the calorie content is not high. The red beetroot tends to
concentrate rather than lose its mineral content when boiled for two hours, but the
vitamins are generally reduced. Therefore when used therapeutically beetroot is
usually juiced raw. Beet root juice taste has a stimulating effect not only upon the
nerves of the tongue but also on the nerves in the intestines.

In Germany there is widespread use of beet juice, which is available in pasteurized
form in bottles, as a powerful restorative during convalescence. It follows that beets
are also good for general weakness and debility of all sorts. In combination with
other juices, especially carrot and cucumber, beet juice is not only a splendid blood
builder but also one of the finest therapies for sexual weakness, kidney stones, gall
bladder, kidney, liver and prostate troubles.

Beet juice still remains a potent force the secrets of which are far from being
unlocked. It is, after carrot, one of the chief juices in the science of natural healing as
practiced on earth. The chlorine present in beet juice acts to regulate digestion by
controlling the peristalsis, or natural rhythmical contractions of the gut and, because
of this, the assimilation of food during the time of recovery is much assisted.

Uncooked beets keep rather better than many vegetables. If you cook beets it is
important to avoid damaging or cutting the skin. If this happens the red color will
leach out into the cooking water leaving the cook with a very pale beet of
unattractive appearance. If the skin is accidentally damaged the leakage of color will
be very much reduced if you add a few drops of lemon juice or cider vinegar to the
water.

The dark green beet tops should not be discarded because they are rich in carotene
and in minerals. They may be juiced in small quantities as an addition to other juices,
whilst steamed they make a good and cheap alternative to spinach.

Beet was looked upon by the
Romans as being good for cooling the
blood. Beet root is also found to
benefit against feverish conditions,

generations found that beet root was
also beneficial for a very strong
specific action to regulate the
digestive system.

good for the blood. In fact the iron
