Beets contain fiber and vitamins C and K. The betaine in beet juice is said to stimulate the function of liver cells and protect the liver and bile ducts. Including beet root and beet greens in your juice and raw-food recipes is an excellent way to detoxify the blood and renew it with minerals and natural sugars.
