  • Sea beet helps in the normal function of the thyroid. Edible seaweeds are some of the most sources of iodine, and sea beets are one of them. Iodine is important for the normal functioning of the thyroid.
  • Sea beet promotes regular bowel movement as it is high in fiber.

Possible Side Effects

  • Consume large amounts of sea beet could cause hypocalemia, kidney damage or toxicity from the plant oxalates.

  • Sea beet can significantly lower blood pressure after only a few hours of consumption. Sea beets are full of vitamins, minerals and medicinal plant compounds, they are low in calories and high in fiber, folate, manganese and dietary nitrates.

Possible Side Effects

  • Beets are generally safe for consumption, but due to their high levels of oxalate content, they carry the risk of contributing to kidney stone formation. People with sensitive stomachs or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) should also eat cautiously, as beets can cause digestive discomfort.
