Known for their earthy taste and crimson red color, beets are nicely paired with hydrating watermelon in this juice to create a delicious glass of nutrition. High in iron, beets are amazing for building the blood. They are also identified as a blood cleanser, purifying and detoxifying impurities in the bloodstream. Adding a bit of burdock root to increase blood circulation, and lemon, a known liver detoxifier, this juice is perfect for preventing a cold or healing hangover.
