Slightly sweeter and less “earthy” tasting than red beets, yellow beets contain B-complex vitamins, magnesium, iron, and naturally-occurring nitrates — which help improve blood flow to the heart and brain. Ginger and flaxseed are two superfoods full of anti-inflammatory power, and apple, orange and lemon are full of immune-boosting vitamin C. This smoothie not only boosts your immune system, but your complexion too, so you’ll look and feel like a million bucks.
