ABSTRACT

Juices of fruits and veggies are very precious, they are rich in vitamins, microelements and other useful and necessary minerals. Juices are drunk not only to quench thirst or because of their wonderful taste, they are used to restore and strengthen the health. Today there is a whole new trend called juice therapy. Beet juice is widely used in this field, since it contains all the useful properties of beets. Beetroot juice benefits and side effects that come with it, should be known to everyone. If you want to improve your athletic performance and stamina, there's no real substitute for simply putting time into working out. 100g of beetroot juice provides 42 kcal; 1.0 g protein; 0 g fat & 9.9 g carbohydrates. But if it if you're looking for a simple, natural way to increase the time-span of your exercises, or if you just want to give yourself that little edge in endurance or speed, then beet juice may be the answer. Beetroot juice is rich in vitamins, phytochemicals, though beetroot contains almost no vitamin A, but the leaves have large quantities of this vitamin. Beetroot contains large amounts of iron and folic acid, which have a favorable effect on the blood, improve red blood cell production, increase the level of hemoglobin and hence improve the nutrition of the cells with oxygen. Iodine contained in beet juice is beneficial to the thyroid gland and improves processes in human memory. Benefits of beet juice also lies in its cleansing properties. Salts of Mg, Na and Ca contained in large amounts have a complex effect on the vasculature and circulatory system. Mg prevents the formation of blood clots, cleanses the blood vessels from cholesterol plaques, improves lipid metabolism and normalizes digestion. Na and Ca, which are of the optimum ratio in beets (50% Na & 5% of Ca) remove excess Ca from the body that is deposited on the walls of blood vessels. Therefore beet juice is extremely useful in thrombophlebitis, varicose veins, hypertension and other diseases of the circulatory system. The beet juice contains trace elements. Beets perfectly cleanse the intestines, stimulate their performance and improve peristalsis. Beet juice benefits the immune system, increases the body’s resistance to a variety of disease agents. Drinking beet juice helps improve physical activity and reduces negative effects of exercises on the body. Therefore it is often drunk by athletes and people who work in difficult conditions. In this manuscript, amazing potential of beetroots’ therapeutic applicability and role in boosting athletic performance is delineated precisely.
