I can tell personally tell you that each color and variety have a different flavor and sweetness level. Beets can be eaten raw, steamed, roasted and even juiced, just to name a few of my favorites.

According to an article from the National Library of Medicine: National Center for Biotechnology Information titled The Potential Benefits of Red Beetroot Supplementation in Health and Disease beets are an important antioxidant that can be beneficial in managing inflammation, which is essential to help reduce the risk of potential issues such as diabetes, dementia and hypertension. The component Betalains, which gives beets their vibrant red color, is what supplies these antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. The Cleveland Clinic also shows us that this red root vegetable has even more health benefits that we originally thought. These health benefits also include support for joint pain, asthma and osteoarthritis.

Due to the sweet taste of beets, many people that are pre-diabetic or diabetic may have a tendency to avoid beets. This is due to the fiber that beets contain. It has been shown that fiber is not only good for the digestive system, but can be beneficial for healthy blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

Beets may be particularly helpful for men’s health. According to an article from MedicalNewsToday, it may be something men suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) may want to consider.
