    Default Wonders of BEET-ROOT

    Beetroots are hailed for their richness in minerals, vitamins and nutrients. A great source of carotenoids and lutein/zeaxanthin, beetroots are also known as sources of dietary fibre, folic acid, Vitamin C, iron, potassium, manganese, zinc, copper, and magnesium.

    Below are some of the benefits of this easy and always available ingredient -

    *This Vitamin C-rich vegetable helps prevent symptoms of asthma.

    *Beetroot is a great supplement during the pregnancy period. Folic acid, the most abundant nutrient in beetroots, is crucial in the proper foetal development during pregnancy, and the development of the infant’s spinal column.

    *Iron in the beetroot increases the production of blood and haemoglobin levels in the body, thus preventing and curing severe anaemia.

    *Beetroots pack a punch with the vitamins and nutrients stored within. They boost the body’s immune system and help fight off infection. They also aid in stimulating the reoxygenation of cells and the production of new blood cells.

    *The beta-carotene abundance in beets helps avoid macular degeneration and prevents cataract.

    *The betaine contained in the beetroot enhances the production of the body’s natural mood lifter, seratonin, and can help you cheer up.

    Word of caution

    * Though not a frequent occurrence, beetroots may cause red colour in urine or stool, known as beeturia.
    * Since an increased consumption of beets also means an increased intake of fibre, it may cause bloating, gas or diarrhoea.
    * Beets can contain up to nearly 14g of sugar in one cup, so patients with blood sugar problems may seek medical supervision.

    If consumed in moderation, there is every reason to add this vegetable in your diet.
