Some benefits on the ingredients that compound this recipe.

Beets.

Beets are a great source of fiber, folate, manganese, potassium, iron and vitamin C. Beets have been known to help keep blood pressure in check. Note that the effect is temporary but regular consumption is required to experience long-term reductions in blood pressure. Beets contain pigments called betalains which may possess anti-inflammatory properties. One cup of beetroot contains 3.4 grams of fiber. (In Healthline. Retrieved March 4, 2020 from www.healthline.com)

Flax Seed Oil.

Flax seed oil is an omega 3 fatty acid containing linolenic and linoleic acids that inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and lipid mediators and thus reduces inflammatory responses in the body. It attracts oxygen at the cell membrane assisting in transport of oxygen into the cell. It also helps carry vitamin A through the blood stream. Lignans come from part of the fiber of the seed and are high in protein. Seeds, including flax seeds, have an important substance in them called an enzyme inhibitor that keeps them dormant until they are in the right environment to sprout. This enzyme inhibitor can also inhibit human digestive enzymes and interfere with good digestion. Remember to only have flax seed oil with foods that are not hot.

Apple Cider Vinegar.

Apple Cider Vinegar has various healthful properties, including antimicrobial and antioxidant effects. It can also help reduce cholesterol and lower blood sugar levels.
