When you think about the litany of fruits and vegetables that sprout feelings of healthiness, wellness and should be consumed on a daily basis, one major player consistently gets left off the list.
This red hot purple vegetable often is overlooked for sexier, fancier and better marketed choices such as dark, leafy greens, mango, oranges, pineapple and everyone's favorite, sweet potato. When you think about beets, two things come to mind: beets in a can and perhaps the television show "The Office" (yes, the Dwight Schrute character had a beet farm, and he would often be featured eating them raw on various episodes of the long running show).
The running beet gag on "The Office" courtesy of Dwight might have been funny had his love affair with this vegetable not been so true. Beets are one of the more forgotten, albeit potent, vegetables when it comes to the health benefits from them.
Beets naturally boost your sexual health and vitality, along with being chalked full of vitamins and minerals such as potassium, iron, fiber and Vitamin C. Often when you hear talk of a health cleanse when eating on fruits and vegetables is on the itinerary for the next 10 days or so, beets find their way into that equation because they're naturally adept at cleansing the body.
