Gorgeous produce makes for a colorful juice, and this juice is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants, like beta carotene, anthocyanin and vitamins A and C. Beets and carrots contain electrolytes potassium and some sodium that are key for muscle contraction and relaxation as well as fluid balance. Research also suggests that beets (specifically beet juice) may help to promote exercise endurance. Take this juice with you out on the road with your bike or your run! (I’d recommend diluting it 8 oz water, 8 oz juice!) Or try it as great replacement for a sports drink like Gatorade.
