Alright, alright, I know. Beetroot isn’t for everyone (trust me, I’ve had numerous debates over this with colleagues).
Some people are weirded out by the strong purple colour, others are creeped by the mushiness of them, but most just dislike them because they’re, well, largely unfamiliar.
I, on the other hand, champion the unfamiliar in the world (just take a look at why Beetroot is so good for you here) – especially the unfamiliar which has so many health benefits.
Beetroot has just so many great attributes to it, including reducing blood pressure, lowering glucose levels, increasing insulin sensitivity and improving muscle oxygenation.

Beets are also particularly great for IBS sufferers as, due to its high fibre content, can prevent constipation and promote regular bowel movements.
