Beetroot - the new "mood food"

Beetroot with its intense purple colour has long been established as an important source of antioxidants, making it an increasingly  popular choice with consumers.  Sales figures for this distinctive vegetable have apparently doubled over the past year.

Research has also indicated that beetroot contains betaine, a compound thought to relax the mind and help with depression.
