Why do I love beets? How do I not? They are overall good for every single cell in your body. Beets are a significant source of betalains, which give the root is deep red color. Betalains are not only a powerful antioxidant, but they are also anti-inflammatory and detoxifying, anti-cancer. What’s not delicious about this.
