After a morning of clearing clutter and old energy inhabiting my external spaces I took a brisk walk to clear my mind and meditate under a tree. Returning home I naturally felt inclined to embody this theme of clearing and followed my inspiration to the kitchen. Here I discovered a bottle of pressed beet juice I had purchased from Trader Joes along with a few other ingredients I keep in supply. A one-stop shop makes it easy to include this cleansing rejuvenating drink in a busy routine.

Traders got all the goods in this recipe however you will have resource your time and space in Nature. So here’s the beet on beets if you want to know more. Otherwise scroll down to the recipes for the basic Beet Juice Tonic I and  Beet Juice Tonic II for an additional healing boost.

Beets have valuable nutrients and healing properties so it makes sense to include in them in your diet a few times a week in any form supporting renewed life force. Beet roots contain valuable nutrients that may help lower your blood pressure, fight cancer and inflammation, boost your stamina, and support detoxification. Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C and essential minerals like potassium essential for healthy nerve and muscle function and manganese, good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas. Beets also provide B vitamins, folate and good source of fiber when eaten whole in the raw or cooked.

As you enjoy the earthy sweet taste of this root vegetable you can appreciate the health benefits and natural cleansing properties of nature’s rich red garnet jewel. The coloration in beets contains betalin pigments to support your body’s Phase 2 detoxification process. This is a process, which breaks down toxins that are bound to other molecules so they can be excreted from your body. Traditionally, beets are valued for their support in detoxification and for the  purification of your blood and liver. So no surprise fresh beets are being harvested in Spring, a natural time of renewal and the optimal Season to rejuvenate the liver.
