Many people don’t know how to incorporate beets into their diet because of their sweet flavor. But beets are an incredible source of vitamin B9, vitamin C, manganese, potassium, iron, and fiber. In 2008, a study in Hypertension concluded that beets can lower your blood pressure in only a few hours.

As a result, beets are imperative to heart health. People who eat beetroots have better stamina and energy while exercising, according to studies by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Toss beets in salads, roast them to make chips, or bake them and create a hummus-like spread.
