Beetroot and other detox ideas
It’s spring, and what better way to celebrate than with a closer look at some in-season detox delights? All these veggies are seasonal right now, so grab them while they’re at their best!
A beautiful vivid colour and sweet flavour all help make beetroot one of the tastiest veggies out there.
This versatile veg can be used in a huge number of ways and you may have seen it linked to detoxification.
Try it raw, used as a salad ingredient, to add a different edge to your leaf-filled healthy living treat.
One thing beetroot is simply bursting with is folic acid, which does things like play a part in the formation of red blood cells in the body. Also in there you’ll find potassium, Vitamin C, Zinc and more.
It’s perhaps appropriate that this veg is close to the colour of love, given that the Romans thought of it as being an aphrodisiac!
Interestingly, in the US you might hear beetroot referred to as a ’beet’.
Another veggie that people use when detoxing, spinach is a great addition to a salad. these leaves are pleasantly soft and have a mild and subtle taste.
Inside you’ll find Vitamin A and Vitamin K and manganese, among other things.
If you don’t like the idea of using spinach in a salad, why not put it in a smoothie? It’s subtle taste will not overpower sweeter flavours from fruits.
But if you’re not tried spinach for a while, we recommend you give these leaves a go, whole and raw, just to see if you like them that way.
Put some fresh, raw watercress into your salad and you’ll be adding a dose of Vitamin C - a vitamin with a range of benefits. It’s also home to vitamin K and vitamin A and contains calcium.
It’s stronger tasting than spinach and will add bit of bite to a salad. Perfect for when you’re after something a little edgier-tasting!
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
