Are beets healthy?

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.
