I know what you’re thinking...beets? Hmmm? Beets are worth the effort though, trust me, here’s why: beets are high in folate, vitamins A and C, iron, potassium, manganese, and fiber. It's said that there are even anti-aging benefits for your skin: beets stimulate cell production and repair, which can protect your skin from premature aging and wrinkles. Now...do you want beets in your smoothie??
