Beets are a unique source of phytonutrients called betalains, which have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support—even more so when consumed raw. Ginger also has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties plus helps stimulate digestion and soothe the digestive tract. Add some greens and an apple for natural sweetness and you have a delicious smoothie that will transform your day!
