How it works:
Betacyanin, the pigment that gives beetroot its colour, is an antioxidant which speeds up detoxification in your liver. This enables the body to turn alcohol into a less harmful substance that can be excreted faster than normal
Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying, this is just what the doctor ordered after over indulgence - and also long term.
Be aware that your pee will most definitely turn pink after this - it's a sign it's working.
