One of the primary benefits of beetroot that I love and consistently use beetroot for is its gallbladder cleansing effects and ability to promote bile flow. What many people don’t often know is that the gallbladder is one of the primary organs involved in digestion and helps with the digestion of fats and absorption of fat-soluble nutrients while also ensuring an optimal terrain in the small intestine to prevent SIBO.
Beet juice for SIBO
There is a HUGE connection between SIBO and gallbladder problems that I never stop talking about. If you have SIBO symptoms, gallbladder pain, fat mal-absorption or SNP’s in the PEMT gene then beetroot will be very beneficial for you due to the beet’s ability to promote antimicrobial bile flow.
Small intestinal bacterial can be a recurrent issue if gallbladder function is not addressed and bile flow is not optimized. This gallbladder cleansing beetroot juice is phenomenal for flushing gallbladder sludge naturally, but the benefits of beetroot juice don’t stop with just the gallbladder. Additional beetroot juice health benefits include improving gut health, relieving constipation, lowering blood pressure, supporting weight loss and liver detox to name a few.
What are the benefits of beet juice for weight loss?
Toxins are stored in fat cells and if the liver and gallbladder cannot effectively and safely detox, the body with its innate wisdom will not use the stored fat in fat cells with lots of toxins until the body can detox the toxins stored in the fat cells. This is why detoxing safely and correctly is crucial for weight loss.
The first step in any liver detox protocol is to first open up the elimination pathways such as improving bile flow from the gallbladder as toxins are escorted out of the liver and body via the bile and through the gallbladder. If the elimination routes are clogged such as in a sluggish gallbladder it can be difficult to lose weight. Beet juice helps to cleanse the gallbladder and liver by opening up this crucial elimination route in the body.

Benefits of beetroot juice for skin
Beetroot juice is also beneficial for the skin as the skin is also another detoxification organ and if the gallbladder detoxification pathway is sluggish in the body then toxins can come out through the skin causing all sorts of skin concerns such as rashes, blemishes, etc
Using beet juice for constipation is one of the secret benefits of beet juice that not too many people know about. Having a healthy bowel movement can entail more than just the common advice of drink more water and eat more fiber.
Beet juice helps to relieve constipation by improving bile flow from the gallbladder and bile helps to stimulate peristalsis in the intestinal tract, making sure that everything is moving along as it should. Having healthy daily bowel movements is super important for any liver detox or colon cleansing program and eating beets is one of the best ways to naturally relieve constipation thus improving whole-body detoxification.
By this point, I hope you are falling in love with beets and all the beet juice benefits that I use this superfood for.
Cucumber is also in this gallbladder cleansing beet juice for the cooling and soothing properties of cucumber which is great for calming down inflammation that comes from an inflamed gut lining.
If you have ever got a sunburn putting cooling cucumber on the skin topically feels amazing…. Well, it works the same inside our bodies and with so many people having inflamed leaky guts utilizing cucumber as a part of this healthy beet juice recipe is amazing to help calm down the inflammation in the gut.
The cucumber is also very hydrating and low in sugar which helps to counter the sweetness and sugar that becomes concentrated when juicing the beetroot.

How to make beet juice
Making this beet juice is super easy, simply wash the beet, cucumber, and apple then dice the beets into quarters, core the apple and use a knife or peeler to take the outer rind off the lemon.
Assemble your juicer and put everything through one at a time starting with the beetroot. I personally use a sunbeam juicer in which I love but I have also used that standard Breville juicer which is just as easy to use and clean.
