This is one of our favorite smoothies that we like to whip up. This Wild Root Smoothie is loaded with root vegetables, including beets, carrots, turnips and fresh ginger.
Beets have been used medicinally since the days of the Ancient Romans, who recognized the colorful root as a potent aphrodisiac.
Beets are high in boron which aids in the production of human sex hormones. There are naturally occurring nitrates in beets which can also increase blood flow, which is code for “awesome” whether you’re a guy or a gal.
Here are a few more benefits of the powerhouse root veggies in this smoothie:
Carrots are packed with vitamin A and beta-carotene, and are known for improving vision, protecting against cancer, slowing aging, promoting healthy skin, preventing infection, and cleansing the body.
Beets are loaded with vitamins and minerals, including potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorous, iron, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, beta-carotene, and beta-cyanine.
Turnips boost your intake of vitamins C, B-2, B-3, B-9, E, K, as well as magnesium, potassium phosphorous, and zinc.
Ginger improves the absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients in the body, making it a great addition to this smoothie. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and works wonders on upset tummies.
And greens? Well, we all know that they’re basically the healthiest thing on earth. 🙂
