Beets are low in calories but high in folate and cancer-fighting, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory betalains
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.
