Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fibre and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is a good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). Beets are a unique source of betaine, a nutrient that helps protect cells, proteins, and enzymes from environmental stress. They are also great at helping to lower inflammation in your body. Beets also help to support the detoxification process in the body, as well as helping to purify your blood and liver.

Cabbage contains fibre, vitamin B6, folate, and manganese, plus vitamins B1, B6, and B5.

Eating raw cabbage is good for the brain as it contains vitamin K and anthocyanins that help with mental function and concentration. Its high sulfur content helps to clear up acne and keep skin, hair and nails healthy, plus it removes toxins from the body.

Both of these powerhouse vegetables have powerful phytonutrients that contain anti- cancer properties. So why not pick up some cabbage and beets on your next shopping trip and make this delicious cabbage beet slaw.
