Beets are in the same family as swiss chard (which has similar greens), spinach, and quinoa. Both the top (greens) and the root are high in nutrients, with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Beetroot has a unique blend of phytonutrients including cancer-fighting betalains, manganese, and vitamin C.
