Beetroot is a root vegetable that contains important nutrients. Studies state its benefits in lowering blood pressure, boosting energy, and fighting inflammation.
Beetroots are also called blood turnips. They are low in sodium and fat and are good sources of folate and hence support mental and emotional health.
Beets also contain vitamin K (blood clotting properties) and calcium (for strong bones and teeth) (1). They are also rich in fiber, and some believe that including them in the diet may help with weight loss. However, there is no research to prove this.
