It serves as a great source of iron to make your immune system stronger. A glass of beetroot juice also increases the level of oxygen during workout and increases stamina during exercise.
Beetroot also serves as a natural hair dye and a hair-nourishing ingredient. Mix regular henna powder with beetroot juice for an auburn tint in your hair and for a soft conditioned feel to it.
For glowing pinkish skin, blend beetroot juice with a readymade fruit mask or any facemask, and leave it on till the mask dries up completely. Use this mask regularly, 5-7 times a week, to get rid of the blemishes and dark spots completely and have a flawless radiant skin. Just using beetroot raw on the skin, feeds your skin with iron and vitamins directly, making it pink. Use it like natural pink rouge if you have wheatish to fair skin.
Lastly, beetroot and carrot juice has been proved to have all the benefits to improve your skin and hair with all the essential vitamins, minerals and iron. So, don’t try to beat the beetroot away from your diet!
