Benefits of Beetroot:
Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). Beetroot also contain the B vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects.
It is also a stamina booster for all those gym enthusiasts who want to train that little longer.
