Beets are delicious and an excellent source of nutrition. While some folks may group beets in with vegetables that traditionally we are supposed to dislike, we hereby declare beets to no longer be on that list.

The Beet Goes On - In two studies between seven and eight men, consuming 17 ounces of beet juice daily for six days allowed the men to extend their exercise team before exhaustion by 15 to 25 percent, HealthLine reported. To maximize the effects of the beets, eat or drink some 2 to 3 hours before competing or training.

Turn The Beet Around - They have the highest sugar content of all vegetables, but hey, they’re also a source of beneficial flavonoids called anthocyanins, as well as dietary fiber, vitamin C, magnesium, iron, copper, and phosphorus, according to OrganicFacts.net.

We Got The Beets - Betaine, an amino acid found in beets, can help prevent and reduce the accumulation of fat in the liver, Health.com reported.
