Start your day with this healthy Beetroot and Ginger Detox Juice

Juicing is a great way to incorporate fruits and vegetables into your diet. This delicious Beet Ginger Detox Juice will nourish your body and help rid it of toxins.
Personally, it’s my favorite juice..!!

I love to drink this juice in the morning to start our day. Beetroot contain high amounts of nitrate (not to be confused with the cancer-causing sodium nitrite added to cured meats), which is converted to nitric oxide. Nitric oxide helps to thin the blood and widen blood vessels. Both of these outcomes are important for cardiovascular health and exercise performance.

There’s no need to take a pre-workout supplement full of artificial additives if you can have the real, fresh, nature-made stuff, amiright? Trust me, your body will thank you for this delicious juice.
