Helps to Lower Inflammation
One of the main reasons of nearly every disease is an ordinary inflammation. But apart from that, there is also a chronic inflammation that accompanies serious disorders such as obesity, cancer, arthritis, liver disease and heart problems. It was discovered that beetroot helps to fight inflammation thanks to its red pigments known as betalains. Testing on rats showed that beetroot juice as well as whole beets lowers kidney inflammation.
Human tests proved that people with osteoarthritis problems experience less pain after a course of betalain capsules made of beetroots. Although further studies are needed for definite evaluation of beets’ effects, but preliminary results of their ability to fight inflammation are quite encouraging for most scientists.
