you can’t beet it for health benefits!
Beetroot is an amazing food source and we encourage fighters to pack this into their diets when and where ever they can! 100 grams will cost you inly 43 calories so feel free to pig out on the purple stuff! Beetroot is delicious eaten raw but is more typically served up cooked or pickled.
Beets verge on the cusp of being labelled a super food thanks to high content of calcium, iron and vitamins A and C. An excellent source of fibre and a super source of folic acid. Not to mention beetroot greens, they can be enjoyed in the same way that spinach is!
Antioxidants are also contained within and they are also one of the richest sources of the amino acid glutamine which is essential to the health and maintenance of the intestinal tract.
