Beetroots are root vegetables high in manganese and folic acid, contain Iron,Fiber,Calcium,Potassium,Copper, Sulphur,Silica,Nitrates, Vitamins A,C and K in its leaves and Antioxidants like Flavanoids and Carotenoids which are very good for eye health.

I love Oats, especially Oats porridge…Some people substitute it for eba/garri to eat with their soups or stews (Nigerians/ West Africans will understand)! Eating Oats has a lot of benefits, they can also be made into a mask. They contain Iron, Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc which promote hair growth and fight hair loss.They act as natural moisturizers (contain Beta-glucan that penetrates layers of hair to moisturize from inside) as they remove dead cells, cleanse scalp by removing excess oil, dirt and sebum that have been accumulated as Oats contain Saponins(natural cleansers).

They also contain Polysaccharides which fight dryness, itchiness and dandruff (Oats possess anti-inflammatory properties); Copper, Fiber which helps with metabolism, Manganese and Biotin(for hair growth). They also help fix damaged hair, thicken and strengthen hair while adding shine.

Oats also treats Acne, sunburns and skin disorders; they improve body metabolism and aid in weight loss.
