Beet is a root from the Beta vulgaris species, belonging to the family Chenopodiaceae, and is used mainly on salads and soups.
Some of the health benefits of beets are lowering blood pressure, preventing some types of cancer, liver cleansing, improvement of anemia and libido.
Beet also maintains healthy skin and prevents eye problems from developing, like cataracts and macular degeneration.
