Lady Love Beet Juice

Beets and beet juice are unique in the plant kingdom for their ability to increase nitric oxide in the blood. Nitric oxide dilates the blood vessels and improves blood flow.

In Chinese medicine, beets are used for strengthening the heart, improving circulation and purifiying the blood. They have special affinity for moving Liver energy and promoting menstruation. Used with carrots, they help regulate hormones during menopause.
