  8. earlybird says:

    So tell me about it? I need a description. And convincing… not sure I like the sound of apple, pear and beetroot but your other readers seem enthusiastic so I guess it’s good! But what for?

    You don’t taste the beetroot πŸ™‚
    From wiki:
    Beetroots are a rich source of potent antioxidants and nutrients, including magnesium, sodium, potassium and vitamin C, and betaine, which is important for cardiovascular health. It functions by acting with other nutrients to reduce the concentration of homocysteine, a homologue of the naturally occurring amino acid cysteine, which can be harmful to blood vessels and thus contribute to the development of heart disease, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease. Betaine functions in conjunction with S-adenosylmethionine, folic acid, and vitamins B6 and B12 to carry out this function.

    1. Pseu says:

      I have to disagree. As a bit of a beetroot fan I bought a drink very similar to this and hated it… the deep earthy taste of beetroot was so wrong as a sweetened drink to my palate!

      1. theonlycin says:

        This product isn’t like that, Pseu, it’s really good.

    2. earlybird says:

      I love beetroot. I just can’t imagine drinking it…

      1. theonlycin says:

        Go on, give it a bash πŸ™‚

    I admire your restraint.

    But not your taste in juice πŸ™‚

    1. theonlycin says:

      C’mon Tilly, it’s soooo good for you!

  11. yadayadafishpaste says:

    I love apple and I love beetroot, but apple and beetroot?.. hmm Sounds healthy though. I’d give it a bash even if just for that reason πŸ™‚

    1. theonlycin says:

      I can recommend it πŸ™‚

  12. Tandy says:

      It works πŸ™‚

  14. mairedubhtx says:

    Good grief. Beet root?

    1. theonlycin says:

      The very one πŸ™‚

  15. Sounds delicious and healthy! Blessings…

  16. slpmartin says:

    Beet Root? Interesting never heard of it…will have to see if we have it over here.

    1. theonlycin says:

      The beetroot, also known as the table beet, garden beet, red beet or informally simply as beet, is one of the many cultivated varieties of beets (Beta vulgaris) and arguably the most commonly encountered variety in North America and Britain…

  17. I think the Romans used to use that stuff to dye their clothes over here.

    1. theonlycin says:

      I think you’re right πŸ™‚

  18. Oh dear me I have to find some of that! I had to start taking high blood pressure meds today. My blood pressure had gone up 10 points or however you say. I was so shocked. I knew it wasn’t great anymore but too hear 159over90!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Gosh Linda, I’m sorry to hear that 😦

  19. libraryscene says:

    ironically, my friend, you just saved me a ‘google’…I’ve been quite ill (and I never get sick, boo!) for over a week and last night I ate two huge beets (roasted bulbs and stems, steamed the leaves) anyhoo, a lot more energy today, and now I know why… a bevy of good stuff in ’em! yum ~ I’m a beet girl

    1. theonlycin says:

      After my research yesterday I will be sure to eat beets every single day!

    2. Oh thanks for that tip! I could use all of the energy I can get.

      1. theonlycin says:

        It is a miracle food πŸ™‚
