Abstract

The beet is such a unique vegetable. They are packed full of nutrients, including folate, manganese, potassium, vitamin C, copper, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, and fiber. Besides all these vitamins and minerals, beets are full of betalains, which act as potent cancer fighters. Betalains are also what gives beets their intense purple color.
