Beetroot is a versatile vegetable and can be used from salads to baking. The color of it pleases our eyes. I love this root veggie in any form but more in the form of juice. You may not like the raw taste of it. In that case, prepare this beet syrup and consume whenever you feel weak.

The raw beet juice will stimulate your body and mind. Carrot, beets and cucumber juice is a good remedy for allergies.

“The presence of alkaline content in the raw juices dissolves the deposits accumulated around the joints and other tissues.”
But don’t over dose yourself. Anything in moderation is good. Always mix it with toher veggies and drink. The pure one may paralyze your vocal chords and increase your heart rate…
