With a taste that’s a bit sweeter and more mellow than red beets, yellow beets have the same health benefits: They help with healthy blood flow, may improve brain function, have specialized antioxidants that fight against degenerative diseases, and may even boost athletic performance. When you combine yellow beets with ginger root and flaxseed, two potent anti-inflammatories, you get a fantastic smoothie for your muscles, immune system, and even your complexion!
