Best Answer

One cup of raw beets is high in carbohydrates and low in fat. It contains phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and potassium, as well as fiber, vitamins A and C, niacin, folic acid, and biotin. Although these are not found in "RDA" quantities, we must remember that nutrients derived from a natural source may be "better" than those found in supplements, as they are found in an organic form. Juicing is an excellent way to get the best out of beets (add a green apple for more flavor.) Steaming beats or even pickled beets are good for you, but raw (juices) is better.
