Boost Your Brain Power with Beets

Beets are not only magnificent in color, but in health benefits too! The nitrates in beets can increase blood flow to your brain. In fact, a study conducted by Wake Forest University showed that adults (70 and older) who added fresh beet juice to their breakfast experienced increased blood flow to their frontal lobes.*

Pressed beet juice is great for breakfast and hot, cooked beets are a healthy side for dinner. You can also boil beets, cool them and pair them with tangy green apples for a flavor-filled snack!
