Heart Fortress Juice

Our friend Jose named this beet juice “Heart Fortress” juice after his second day on the Young and Raw: SuperHuman Health Makeover. And for good reason! Beets are a serious power veggie. Betacyanin, the pigment which gives the beet its dark red colour, is an amazing antioxidant which fights an array of cancers. If you or someone close to you is hoping to naturally lower their blood pressure, beet juice will do it. Not only that, but beet juice has also been proven to prevent cardio-vascular disease. We’re serious green juice addicts, so today was a rare occasion, however after experiencing the joy of a yummy beet juice and all of it’s benefits, this recipe is going to become part of our weekly routine.

2 Beets

3 carrots
