How and in what cases can a root crop harm health?

Despite all its many useful properties, beets are not recommended for use in some cases. This is mainly due to the existing chronic ailments or diseases that are in the stage of exacerbation. Beets are contraindicated in men with the following pathologies:

  • severe obesity and diabetes mellitus;
  • chronic diarrhea caused by disturbances in the work of the gastrointestinal tract;
  • the presence of kidney stones;
  • hypotension;
  • allergies and intolerance to the components of the root crop.

With extreme caution, the vegetable should be eaten by men who have a predisposition to the formation of kidney stones.

Oxalic acid, which is found in large quantities in beets, can cause crystallization of fluid molecules in the body. They begin to accumulate in the kidneys, which leads to the formation of stones.

According to unofficial data, for a man, the recommended daily intake is 1-2 fresh medium-sized roots or 1 glass of freshly squeezed juice. The use of boiled beets is possible in somewhat large quantities.

Before starting the course of treatment, you need to make sure whether the use of a vegetable will exacerbate any diseases in the body. If you yourself cannot determine this, then it is advisable to consult a professional doctor.
