There are healthier alternatives to coffee and black tea that can help energize the body. You may not feel an instantaneous jolt of energy, but you wont’ feel that same crash that comes after drinking a caffeinated beverage. The base of this juice recipe is beets, which have a naturally sweet yet earthy flavor. When you pair beets with ingredients like carrots, pineapples, and lemons, you bring out the inherent sweetness. This results in a refreshing juice, as opposed to a savory beverage.
Beets are naturally rich in iron, potassium, boron, folate, silica, phytosterols, and betaine. They have natural cleansing properties that aid liver function, and they may also help increase athletic performance. Nitrates are vasodilators, which widen blood vessels to help improve blood flow. They also relax the veins, making it so the heart doesn’t have to work as heard when it pumps blood to and from the extremities. The other ingredients also help to promote healthier digestion and natural energy. We hope you love it!
