If leaving them to infuse indefinitely in jars of lightly salted water isn't your idea of delicious, perhaps a batch of decadent vegan beetroot chocolate cup cakes will fit the bill.
Loose without leaves. Beetroot gets their distinct red colour, not from the antioxidant, anthocyanins, but from betalain antioxidant pigments. These nutrients has been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support. With regards to detoxification, the process utilises the beneficial properties betalain has to offer. Phase 2 detoxification of the liver involves an enzyme family called the glutathione-S-transferase family (GSTs). GSTs hook toxins up with glutathione for neutralization and excretion from the body. The betalains found in beet have been shown to trigger GST activity, and to aid in the elimination of toxins that require glutathione for excretion. In addition to these, the beetroot is high in Viamin C and manganese, therefore offering great antioxidant support Betalains also help the body make carnitine. Carnitine is a nutrient that helps the body turn fat into energy.
