Carrot and Beet Juice Recipe
Great for increasing circulation and encouraging bowel elimination, beets contain a color pigment called betalain, which is a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, fungicidal and detoxification aid. Recent studies from The American Heart Association concluded that drinking a small amount of fresh, raw beet juice not only lowers high blood pressure quickly and effectively but could also be a natural approach to reducing future cardiovascular problems. The ginger and chiles in this juice create a feeling of warmth and the sweetness of carrots gives a smooth, pleasurable taste.
