Berry Beet Smoothie
Did you know that studies have shown that beets have a capacity of significantly lowering your blood pressure by the incredible 4–10 mmHg, over a period of only a few hours?
No wonder people are starting to consume it more and more.
Beets also contain a class of pigments called betalains, which may potentially possess a number of anti-inflammatory properties.
So, here is a breakfast idea for you that has these two ingredients combined.
It only takes 10 minutes to prepare it.
