So ‘B’ is for BEETROOT
Did you know Beetroot was once grown for the leafy green tops rather than the root we eat today?
From helping my Grandad in his allotment when I was a little girl, beetroot has been a favourite of mine. Little did I know then that Beetroot was also an amazing vegetable that helps the body filter toxins!
Beetroot has been shown to increase antioxidant activity in the liver, so helps to enable the liver to filter toxins. Beetroot also enables the liver to increase methylation, which then breaks down more toxins. No wonder it’s always included in detox juice!
Anything that helps the Liver to filter toxins is an acne prone person’s best friend – we need those toxins flushed out, in addition to the good stuff we put into our bodies when we take SkinB5 Acne Control Tablets.
So… what do you do with a fresh Beetroot? Most people have only ever used Beetroot from a tin, which is not the best, as sugar and preservatives will have been added.
Here are a couple of super simple ideas.
- 6 – 8 x Beetroot
- 2 table spoons of Olive Oil
Peel the Beets and cut into quarters. Toss in Olive Oil and pop into a roasting tin. Roast for 30 – 45mins (or until tender) at 180 degrees.
