Did you know that beet is in season from September to March? That’s why it’s also one of the autumn winter vegetables. Beet is a root vegetable and gets its typical red color from the pigment betanin. It provides you with many healthy vitamins and minerals. The healthy vegetable can help lower blood pressure and is good for our cardiovascular system. To benefit from these healthy ingredients, you should buy the red tuber as fresh and regional as possible.
Horseradish is well known as a medicinal plant. The pungency it contains makes it particularly healthy. The mustard oil glycosides act against germs and pathogens and can inhibit inflammation. However, these mustard oils are only released when you grate the root. In addition, horseradish is an extremely healthy vitamin C supplier and thus supports your immune system.
