If you have high blood pressure, beetroot juice may help normalize the condition. Vegetables contain nitrates that our bodies convert into nitric oxide. Leafy greens are high in nitrates, but beetroot has an even higher concentration of nitrates. A clinical study showed that patients who consumed eight ounces of beetroot juice everyday for four weeks had a decrease in their blood pressure. These patients’ blood pressure increased after just two weeks of not drinking beetroot juice.
- Over 75 million people suffer from high blood pressure in the United States alone.
- Consuming about 8 ounces of beetroot juice can bring your blood pressure to a normal state in about two week.
- Consistency is key and currently if you stop drinking after two weeks it is likely your blood pressure will rise.
“Love it or hate it, if you are looking for natural blood pressure support, then the mineral rich flavor of beetroot is a flavor worth tasting every day.”
