Beets have a rich mineral composition, therefore they are used for the prevention and treatment of many diseases. The root vegetable is rich in copper, potassium and magnesium, contains calcium and iodine salts, as well as a set of trace elements such as manganese, molybdenum, cobalt, zinc, fluorine. Magnesium and potassium ensure the normal functioning of the heart muscle, calcium is necessary for bone tissue, iron for the process of hematopoiesis, iodine protects the thyroid gland, and cobalt participates in the synthesis of vitamin B12, which is necessary for the formation of red blood cells. Zinc has a beneficial effect on the functions of the gonads and improves visual acuity. Beetroot has a cardiotonic and hematopoietic effect, increases the level of hemoglobin in the blood, helps to restore the heart rate and regulation of blood pressure, and normalizes the thyroid gland. Anthocyanins (thanks to which beets have such a rich color) strengthen the walls of the capillaries, relieve vascular spasms and help lower blood pressure. Lipotropic substances betaine and betanin, together with fiber, have a beneficial effect on intestinal activity, remove toxic substances from the body, stimulate the restoration of liver cells and protect it, prevent the formation of stones in the gallbladder and bile ducts. Ginger has a beneficial effect on the digestive system. It stimulates the secretion of gastric juice, thereby helping to cope with indigestion, belching, and prevents gastric ulcer. The root enhances cerebral circulation, increases the activity of the thyroid gland in the production of hormones. Ginger cleans the walls of central and peripheral blood vessels from cholesterol plaques, normalizes cholesterol levels (reduces the production of harmful low-density cholesterol).
