Know What U Eat: Both beet root and beet greens are very powerful cleansers and builders of the blood.
Anemia: The high content of iron in beets regenerates and reactivates the red blood cells and supplies fresh oxygen to the body. The copper content in beets help make the iron more available to the body. A great blood builder.
Atherosclerosis: This wonderful crimson juice is a powerful solvent for inorganic calcium deposits that cause the arteries to harden.
Blood pressure: All its healing and medicinal values effectively normalizes blood pressure, lowering high blood pressure or elevating low blood pressure.
Varicose veins: In similar ways that it helps to keep the elasticity of arteries, regular consumption of beets juice also helps prevent varicose veins.

I made this beetroot halwa, adding some cooking oats, just to check how it tastes, its entirely optional though, when I first heard of beetroot halwa, I wasnt sure how it would taste..but it ecxatly taste like carrot halwa, with just a twist of adding oats to give nice chewy, sticky texture to it with the benefits of having oats in a different way.. For now try this..Beetroot & Oats Halwa!!
