Beets are packed with iron, copper, niacin, potassium, manganese (trace mineral good for UV protection and collagen stimulation), magnesium, calcium, zinc, folic acid and vitamin C. These nutrients are great for a glowing complexion. Vitamin C helps to boost collagen production and folic acid is great for healthy skin and hair. Also your skin is protected from damage by free radicals which cause premature aging thanks to the betalain antioxidant (gives beets their red pigment). Beets are also good for your blood pressure and digestion.
