DID YOU KNOW? According to Ayurveda beets are recommended during Vata season, which runs from October through March, as the bright and vibrant colors can help balance out the dryness and coldness of the season.
In addition, beets have many uses in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda including cleansing the liver, improving blood circulation and calming the mind and spirit.
They are also used as a natural remedy for a variety of ailments and have been traditionally used to treat conditions such as:
- Heart weakness
- Liver toxicity
- Irritability & restlessness
- Irregular periods
- Decreased libido
Smoothies are an easy way to add more beets to your diet. And to make things even easier, look for frozen or vacuum packed beets in your grocery store. They’ll save you lots of time since they’re already cleaned and cooked – just throw them into your blender.
