Beets For Gout Sufferers And Toothache?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Beetroot (Beta vulgaris) is a fruit that has a variety of good health benefits. Many literatures say that beets contain high fiber, folic acid (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. With this content, beets are known to have various benefits, such as:
Lowering blood pressure, cholesterol levels in the blood
Improve physical performance in sports
Slows the progression of dementia
Maintain ideal body weight
Prevent the formation of cancer cells
Maintain a healthy heart muscle
Speed up the wound healing process
Maintain healthy skin
Support the work of the heart
Maintain fetal health, prevent fetal defects, and so on
There is no adequate research regarding the adverse effects of consuming beetroot on people with gout, high blood pressure, and toothache. However, when judging from the content and properties as mentioned above, the consumption of beets should not have a bad impact on people with the disease, but quite the opposite. Some things to watch out for in the consumption of beets are related to their high oxalate content, so they are not good for people with kidney stones. In addition, the high FODMAP content in beets can also make sufferers experience indigestion. Therefore, consumption of this fruit is also not recommended to overdo it in people with irritable bowel syndrome. The rest, beets are still safe for consumption, but should still be done within reasonable limits.
That's all for our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with a doctor or a nutritionist.
I hope this helps.
