Why are beets so great? The actual red vegetable contains betalains, which are phytonutrients that provide strong support for both organ detoxification and anti-inflammatory responses. In some studies, betalains have even been shown to lessen the growth of tumor cells. Wheatgrass is another gentle detoxifier that is also one of the best forms of chlorophyll you can ingest. Chlorophyll acts as a natural antibacterial healer, and can help to purify your skin from the inside out.
