3. Skeletal System

Beet greens are an excellent source of manganese, folate, copper, silica, and magnesium. These vitamins and minerals are important for bone strength. Calcium is vital to bone growth and healing, but it is not easy for the digestive system to break down and absorb. Some calcium from food or supplements is always lost and expelled in waste. The silica contained in beet greens enhances calcium absorption, enabling the body to use a higher percentage of what it takes in.
