- Beets are absolutely packed with a uniquely wide range of antioxidants. These potent antioxidants such as betaines, vitamin C, and manganese fight the effects of oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is the total burden placed on organisms by the constant production of free radicals in the normal course of metabolism plus whatever other pressures the environment brings to bear (natural and artificial radiation, toxins in the air, food, and water; and miscellaneous sources of oxidizing activity, such as tobacco smoke). Oxidative stress has been linked to many diseases, including heart disease and cancer. Beets help prevent chronic inflammation by inhibiting the molecules that send pro-inflammatory messages throughout the body. Inflammation is also linked to many diseases including atherosclerosis and heart disease. The betaines in beets are also beneficial as a detox, getting rid of unwanted toxins in the body.
- Apples are always related to a popular belief that eating one a day can prevent visits to the physician, and for good reason. They are packed with flavonoid antioxidants, which may help prevent cancer. Apples are a great source of fiber, which is known to lower levels of LDL cholesterol. High cholesterol is one of the major risk factors for heart disease and stroke. The polyphenols in apples help slow down the digestion of carbs and breaks them down into simple sugars, which puts less sugar load in the blood stream. This means that apples lower blood sugar levels.
- Carrots are one of the highest sources of vitamin A, which may prevent certain types of cancers, and boost the immune system. They are a good source of vitamin C, which has been known for generations as a potent immune booster and antioxidant. Vitamin B6 is essential for the production of serotonin, which helps stabilize the mood and sleep patterns. Vitamin B6 also helps with metabolism and strengthens the immune system. Carrots are a tremendous source of beta-carotene, which our bodies can convert to Vitamin A. Carrots do not contain cholesterol and are very low in saturated fat. Carrots are very high in fiber, potassium, vitamins A and C, high in niacin, manganese, and vitamin B6.
