What can make the ever-stupendous carrot-orange juice recipe even better? Beets!!! Beets have high level of anti-carcinogenic compounds, so they make incredibly healthy juices! They are pumped full of antioxidants that protect the body against heart disease and certain cancers (mainly colon cancer). Beets get their red-color from the pigment betacyanin which increases the oxygen-carrying ability of the blood by up to 400 per cent! Wowzers! That’s great news for athletes!
