When we debuted the new Brooklyn Beet Elixir at the Opening of the Whole Foods Market in Gowanus Brooklyn, there was a common theme among the first taste testers; the red color instantly made them think it was the “healthiest” of the different formulations. While all our elixirs pack an incredible healthy punch on their own, there is no denying that the addition of beets truly makes the BK Beet, an exceptional fountain of health and energy. Beets may get a bad rap for being sweet and high in “sugar” (its NATURAL people) but we think they are awesome and love the way this naturally colored drink makes us feel.
Beets, often dubbed natures candy are high are actually extremely beneficial when it comes to detoxification and antioxidant support. Detox, a word that is far too prominent in conversations following the holidays, is a way of cleaning the blood; basically removing impurities from the blood from your liver (i.e toxins being processed for elimination). If you are overdoing it on the toxins or live in a major city your system may be compromised and overworking itself.
Beets are high in betalain, a color pigment that acts as a powerful antioxidant, fungicidal, and aids in the detoxification process. Pectin, another fiber in beets also helps clean out the toxins from the body once they have been removed from the liver. This ensures they are flushed from the body and not just reabsorbed into the system. Drinking beet juice will leave your liver functioning properly and your body feeling alive.
The best way to consume is in their raw form as a juice. When you juice something, you allow the digestive system to take a little break. Each Brooklyn Beet 12 oz. has 2 oz. of cold pressed beet juice, 15 grams of organic, whole root, cold pressed turmeric and more amazing spices to give you the best in whole food nutrition. Since Turmeric is also known to be a natural liver detoxifier, the potency in this drink will be felt instantly. Drink up and feel great!
