Red Beets & Hummus for Gut Health
Red beetroot is an excellent source of folate, manganese, potassium, iron, vitamin C, and fiber. It also contains several plant compounds known to support good health, including the antioxidant betanin and inorganic nitrate, which helps improve blood flow. This red vegetable is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties and high antioxidant capacity, which helps to improve circulation. Better circulation increases nutrient delivery, boosts oxygen flow, and increases exercise capacity.
Hummus is a great source of dietary fiber (we can never get enough), which can help improve overall digestion. For every 3.5 ounces, it provides 6 grams of dietary fiber, which is equal to 24% (women) and 16% (men) of the daily recommendation.
