Can I eat beetroot if I have eczema?

alkaline antioxidants beetroot beetroots benefits eczema eczema friendly vegetables liver health salicylates The Eczema Diet The Eczema Life

I would like to talk about the beautiful beetroot. Beetroot is great for most eczema sufferers (Note: people with severe salicylate sensitivity should avoid beetroot as it contains moderate salicylates).

It has strong alkalising properties which boosts liver detoxification of salicylates and other chemicals. It is abundant in antioxidants, folic acid and iron.

 To top it off, it is a potent blood cleanser and research shows that beetroot consumption lowers blood pressure and has an aspirin like effect, reducing the risk of blood clots.

I’m busy, can I use canned beetroots? Unfortunately not. Canned beetroot contains vinegar which is a 'no no' for eczema.

How can I use beetroot? Give me some recipes?

  • You can grate fresh, peeled beetroots into salads (if you can’t be bothered to work your guns on the grater- pop some beetroots in the oven).
  • Freshly made juices. The Healthy Skin Juice from ‘The Eczema Diet’ is a great option, simply juice: 3 sticks of celery, 1-2 carrots(tops removed), half a medium beetroot, and two pears (must be ripe).

For a complete guide to eczema safe foods and recipes, The Eczema Diet book on sale at http://www.eczemalife.com/ has you covered.
