Pollution, bad sleeping habits, and junk food affect the skin first as it is the outermost barrier – in many different ways. This recipe, filled with the goodness of beetroot, will help flush out the toxins from your body and leave you with supple and fresh-looking skin. But hold on, this magical ingredient has many more benefits as well.

 

First and foremost, beetroot juice is a great blood purifier. It is rich in Vitamin C, which clears blemishes and gives a natural glow.

This vegetable contains betalains, which are compounds that provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxification properties. In fact, beetroots have been known to be a liver-protective food. A great cleanser of the liver, beetroots are helpful in flushing out toxins.

Beetroots are full of fibre, which aid the digestive tract to function smoothly. This juice also helps in opening up blood vessels and increases the flow of oxygen in your body – this will make you feel active and energetic.

 

Try this juice, as when you are healthy from within, you are healthy from the outside.
