Guinness has less calories (125 calories for 12-ounce) than an orange juice (154 calories for 12-ounce). Guinness is considered to be an aphrodisiac in some countries. Guinness is also known as Black Power or Viagra. Some breastfeeding experts and midwives do recommend that nursing mothers should drink small amounts of Guinness because it stimulates prolactin, because of a polysaccharide that’s in the barley. However many experts would recommend the no-alcohol route when breastfeeding. A study by the University of Wisconsin revealed that Guinness can reduce the risk of heart attacks and blood clots. This is because it contains the same types of antioxidants that are found in red wine.
Apparently Guinness is regarded as an aphrodisiac in some parts of Africa, the Far East and the Caribbean, sometimes with a raw egg in it. Eggs are high in zinc which helps produce testosterone. The iron in darker beer helps your red blood cells create hemoglobin, which carries oxygen around the body. Essentially it improves your circulation meaning you have a stronger erection. Researchers at Italy’s Fondazione di Ricerca e Cura said a pint a day makes you 31 % less likely than tee-totallers to suffer from heart attacks, strokes or heart disease meaning you’ll be fitter and healthier to keep things going.
Choose organic and wash the ingredients but there is no need to peel them. Chop into chunks and in the juicer.

Your urine and stools may turn red or pinkish after eating beets. This condition, known as beeturia, is harmless. But it may be startling if you don’t expect it.
If you have low blood pressure, drinking beetroot juice regularly may increase the risk of your pressure dropping too low. Monitor your blood pressure carefully.
If you’re prone to calcium oxalate kidney stones, don’t drink beetroot juice. Beets are high in oxalates, which are naturally occurring substances that form crystals in your urine. They may lead to stones.
Beets are healthy no matter how you prepare them. But juicing beets is a superior way to enjoy them because cooking beets reduces their nutritional profile. If you don’t like beetroot juice straight up, try adding some apple slices, mint, citrus, or a carrot to cut through the earthy taste.
If you decide to add beetroot juice to your diet, take it easy at first. Start by juicing half a small beetroot and see how your body responds. As your body adjusts, you can drink more.
