Digging in is recommend though: beets are good for heart health, dementia, diabetes, and digestion. They help maintain a healthy sex drive, contain anti-aging properties and detox the blood. Beetroots are exceptionally high in inorganic nitrates, which have been associated with reduced blood pressure, boosting endurance, stamina and muscle recovery.
