Raw beets are very erratic and strong cleaners. They are almost as powerful of a cleanser as raw sugary fruit. And raw beet juice is such a deep tissue cleanser that I generally only recommend it in small doses.
Since beets grow in the ground, they are more contractive and grounding according to Chinese medicine and culture. Therefore, they have a warming effect on the body, perfect for these cold weather months.
