My friend Yollande has great skin, and there is no way of getting away from that. Ever since she was young, she has drunk fresh beetroot juice, and despite her 62 years, she has very few dark spots and hardly any wrinkles. This is just one of the many health benefits of beetroot, and I am sure that there are lots of people who can list many more of them. I have tried using beetroot recently when I suffered a joint injury which was very painful. It is claimed to help to deal with joint pain, and in my case it did just that. At least that is one beetroot health benefit confirmed.
Blood pressure and Beetroot
In Russia, and in Scandinavian countries, beetroot has been used to treat high blood pressure. My grandma swears by it, and uses it to treat my grand dad’s high blood pressure. It seems to be very effective but you need to let it build up in your system. To be honest, I am not sure what the active ingredient is which cause this positive effect, and my grand mother, a medical doctor, is not sure neither.
