Viva Beetroot: Beetroot Juice Helps Lower Blood Pressure
Viva Beetroot: Beetroot Juice Helps Lower Blood Pressure

Drinking beetroot juice can help lower blood pressure with 7% research says.

Researchers found that drinking about a cup of beetroot a day lowers blood pressure by 7%, this is due to beetroot’s natural high level of nitrate.

Eating food with high levels of nitrates triggers a series of chemical reactions in the body and that helps increase oxygen in the parts of the body that are lacking.

 Other foods that contain high level of nitrate are cabbage, spinach and other leafy vegetables.

According to the study beetroot juice contains 0.2g of nitrate, the amount found in a big bowl of lattice or two beetroots.

Changes in lifestyle, such as cutting down salt and alcohol and taking more exercise, may control blood pressure and there are a number of drug treatments available.
