Fifty years ago when Jay was studying about juices and their healing powers, one of the juicing masters of that time, Dr. Norman Walker had a great influence on Jay’s understanding of fruits, vegetables and their role on various parts of the body.
One of the vegetables Dr. Walker believed to be powerful was red beets. His studies provided evidence that beets were great for cleansing and rejuvenating the liver. To this day, Jay frequently uses beets in many of his juice combinations.
Through the benefit of years and also recent clinical studies about beets, we now know even more about the benefits, not only for eating beets, but also beet juice. Research now indicates beet juice can improve brain function, especially in older adults. Beets are high in nitrates that stimulate circulation for intestinal health, blood pressure and exercise performance.
In this study daily beet juice consumption was shown to improve blood flow, especially to the frontal lobe of the brain where cognitive function is more critical as we age.
Beets are very easy to add to your own favorite juicing recipes. A great juice combo from Jay and Dr. Walker is The Liver Mover. 1/4 to 1/2 a beet and 2 apples.
