Beets are rich in nitrates, which the body converts to nitric oxide—a compound that relaxes and dilates blood vessels, turning them into superhighways for your nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood. That means better circulation, and possibly lower blood pressure.

Eating more beets may boost your immune function and prevent chronic diseases because of the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants they contain. Nutrients in beets responsible for this immune support include vitamin C, folate, manganese, iron and phytochemicals, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Beets have a somewhat earthy flavor that subsides slightly when they’re cooked. However, try grating them raw into salads or juicing them to get the most nutrient content from each beet.

Anemia may cause a decrease in your immune function and reduce your ability to fight off infections, according to the site Anemia.org. Eating beets may help prevent anemia from occurring due to the folate they contain. The Office of Dietary Supplements notes that a deficiency of folate can cause red blood cell abnormalities. Your body relies on red blood cells to transport oxygen to your cells, allowing them to function their best. Without enough, the health of your cells may decline, leaving you feeling weak, fatigued and irritable and increasing your chances of illness. Eating 1 cup of raw beets provides you with 148 micrograms of folate, which is 37 percent of the 400 micrograms adults need per day.

According to the USDA, eating 1 cup of raw beets provides you with 0.5 milligrams of manganese. That’s 25 percent of the recommended daily value for this trace mineral. The University of Maryland Medical Center notes that manganese is essential for formation of an antioxidant called superoxide dismutase. This powerful antioxidant aids your immune system in preventing chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease, because it helps neutralize harmful free radical compounds in your body.

Iron and vitamin C play a role in your immune function, and you get both of these nutrients from eating beets. Iron, found in hemoglobin in red blood cells, carries oxygen to your cells and prevents anemia. Getting enough iron helps keep cells healthy and strong, improving your immune system’s ability to fight off illness. Absorption of iron is enhanced by vitamin C, which is also found in beets. White blood cells in your body are essential for fighting off infections and contain high levels of vitamin C, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements. Vitamin C also aids immune function by acting as an antioxidant.

 



All plant foods contain different phytochemicals, or plant chemicals, with unique properties. Betacyanins, phytochemicals found in beets, act as antioxidants in your body. According to an article published in the “Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry” in October 2001, eating more beets may protect your body from oxidative stress disorders. This boosts your immunity by helping to prevent chronic diseases.
