I. The recipe

Guested Author: Ciara Carruthers

This is my article dedicated to juicing beets recipes.

Frankly, I love the things, and I really find, I don’t know if it’s just me, but every time I feel tired or I feel a cold coming on, juicing beets really helps me. Maybe it’s a placebo thing. I don’t care. I’m making an article especially for that special vegetable in my life.

So here of some stats of said vegetable;

Beets contain calcium, iron, sulphur, potassium, beta-carotene, choline, and vitamin C.

They are high in manganese, an important mineral for brain function.

Beets are also high in minerals that strengthen the liver and gall bladder, and are the building blocks for blood corpuscles and cells.

Beets are famous for their ability to cleanse the blood.

Beet juice is super concentrated so I’d strongly advise you dilute it with water or other juices.

Purchase firm, rock-hard beets. Being a root, they can be stored for months in the refrigerator.

Juicing beets recipes:

Carrot, spinach and beets

4 carrots

beet with greens

5 – 6 leaves of Romaine or other leaf lettuce

3 – 4 leaves of spinach

Scrub organic carrots or peel the carrots if they are not organic. Clean and cut beet into slender wedges, and wash & dry lettuce and spinach leaves. Juice half of the carrots, and the beet, and then you may use the remaining carrots to help push the lettuce and spinach through the juicer.

Power punch

Juice 1 small beet.

Juice 1 pear.

Juice 1 Fiji apple.

Juice a small piece of ginger 2 inches max.

Juice 2 inches of salsify root.

Gialla and Rossa) and red beet ( Beta vulgaris L. ssp. vulgaris) indicated that Betaxanthins were wholly soluble in the aqueous (bioaccessible) fraction after ultracentrifugation of the postintestinal (PI) digesta, whereas release of betacyanins from the matrix was incomplete. PI digesta inhibited dose-dependently the oxidation of methyl linoleate in methanol, an effect not correlated with the betalain content, according to “In vitro digestion of betalainic foods. Stability and bioaccessibility of betaxanthins and betacyanins and antioxidative potential of food digesta” by Tesoriere L, Fazzari M, Angileri F, Gentile C, Livrea MA.(b)

3. Cardiovascular diseases

In the classification of the effect of fruits and vegetables in blood pressure (BP) and the risk of adverse cardiovascular events found that approximately 3 hours after ingestion of a dietary nitrate load (beetroot juice 500 mL), BP was substantially reduced (Delta(max) -10.4/8 mm Hg); an effect that correlated with peak increases in plasma nitrite concentration. The dietary nitrate load also prevented endothelial dysfunction induced by an acute ischemic insult in the human forearm and significantly attenuated ex vivo platelet aggregation in response to collagen and ADP, according to “Acute blood pressure lowering, vasoprotective, and antiplatelet properties of dietary nitrate via bioconversion to nitrite” by Webb AJ, Patel N, Loukogeorgakis S, Okorie M, Aboud Z, Misra S, Rashid R, Miall P, Deanfield J, Benjamin N, MacAllister R, Hobbs AJ, Ahluwalia A.(c)

4. Lung and Skin Cancer

Diabetes, as Increased consumption of vegetables, whole grains, and soluble and insoluble fiber is associated with improved glucose metabolism in both diabetic and nondiabetic individuals. Improvements in insulin sensitivity and glucose homeostasis were more evident in participants following a plant-based diet compared with other commonly used diets, according to the study of “Efficacy of high-fiber diets in the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus” by Wolfram T, Ismail-Beigi F.(4)

4. Potassium

Potassium beside is important in maintaining the regular contraction and relaxation of the muscle, that helps to reducing the risk of hypokalemia, it also helps the lymphatic system in regulating the levels of fluid in the body, thus lessening the risk of lymphedema, swelling caused by the accumulation of lymph fluid. In a study of “Narrative review: evolving concepts in potassium homeostasis and hypokalemia” by Greenlee M, Wingo CS, McDonough AA, Youn JH, Kone BC., posted in PubMed (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19414841), researchers found that recent experimental insights into the participation of feedback and feedforward control mechanisms in potassium homeostasis. New data make clear that feedforward homeostatic responses activate when decreased potassium intake is sensed, even when plasma potassium concentration is still within the normal range and before frank hypokalemia ensues, in addition to the classic feedback activation of renal potassium conservation when plasma potassium concentration decreases.

5. Vitamin C

In the evaluation of pulmonary dysfunction. and it effects on pulmonary dysfunction found that At present, evidence from randomised-controlled trials is insufficient to recommend a specific role for vitamin C in the treatment of asthma. Further methodologically strong and large-scale randomised controlled trials are needed in order to address the question of the effectiveness of vitamin C in children with asthma but some outcome data showed effectiveness on lung function, symptom scores, IgE levels and inhaled steroid use. One small study showed a significant difference in % drop in FEV1 post-exercise, according to the study of “Vitamin C supplementation for asthma” by Kaur B, Rowe BH, Arnold E.(5)

6. Tryptophan

Tryptophan is one of the 10 essential amino acids which the body uses to synthesize the proteins for brain cells need, thus enhancing the nerve cells in information transmitting between themselves and cells in the parts of the body that reduces the risk of anxiety and depression, according to the study of “The effects of tryptophan depletion on neural responses to emotional words in remitted depression” by Roiser JP, Levy J, Fromm SJ, Nugent AC, Talagala SL, Hasler G, Henn FA, Sahakian BJ, Drevets WC.(6)
