Beets are one the best sources of folate and betaine. These nutrients work together to lower blood levels of homocysteine. A high level of blood serum homocysteine can damage your arteries and increase your risk of heart disease. The natural pigments, betacyanins that give beets their color have been shown to have potent anti-cancer properties in studies of laboratory mice.
