Research shows that betaine, an amino acid found in beetroot can help prevent and reduce the accumulation of fat in the liver. Beetroots are also rich in Vitamin C which helps even out skin tone while giving it a natural glow. Studies have shown that beetroots can significantly lower blood pressure by up to 4-10mmHg over a period of a few hours. The nitrates in beetroots may also improve mental and cognitive function by promoting the dilation of blood vessels and thus increasing blood flow to the brain.
