Nutrients in this restorative beet, carrot, and apple smoothie

Here we’ll list a few of the key nutrients found in this smoothie:

  • Carbohydrates: The three ingredients in this smoothie (beet, apple, and carrot), contain a moderate amount of sugars, which are an important energy source. Make the most of this energy source by drinking it in the morning hours.
  • Vitamin A: Carrots are extremely rich in vitamin A. As we all know, this nutrient protects our eyesight and stimulates the immune system.
  • Vitamin B6: Beets contain a considerable amount of vitamin B6, an important nutrient in the metabolism of amino acids and in neurotransmitter synthesis.
  • Vitamin B9: This nutrient, also known as folic acid, is found abundantly in beets. It’s also found in carrots to a lesser extent. Folic acid may help prevent depression. It may also boost fertility, both in men and women.
  • Vitamin C: There’s a lot of vitamin C in carrots, apples, and beets. Vitamin C, when consumed regularly, is a powerful antioxidant and may reduce your chances of suffering from coronary heart disease and cancer.
