i've never liked the taste of beets and have avoided them mostly, however, i got beets in my csa basket. my thought was to juice them and then drink the juice quickly, which i did. this was followed by a burning in my throat and vomiting. hours later, i still feel pretty bad and my throat still feels as though it was burned. a friend suggested that i might have just had too much. i drank a full glass. thoughts? and is there anything that will help me feel better?

Wow. I'm wondering if the drinking fast would sort of just cause you to throw up and then the throwing up made your throat burn. Sounds horrible!

I have heard of reactions like this to pure beet juice. It was a long time ago and I have never searched for info on it before... thought maybe it could have been an old wives tale. I have always heard that it is best to mix beet juice with other juices though. It is very strong
