According to a recent report by the BBC, beet juice helps lower blood pressure.
Researchers at the London School of Medicine have studied 15 hypertensive patients and found that if these patients drink about 250 ml of beet juice a day, they can lower their blood pressure by 10 mm Hg. It was found through testing that the most significant time was about 3 to 6 hours.
A study published in the recently published medical journal Hypertension stated that nitrate in sugar beets can help blood vessels dilate, help blood flow, and soothe tight blood pressure. In many patients with angina, the doctor will prescribe nitrate drugs to relieve the symptoms of angina.
Researchers say that natural nitrates are found in the soil and that vegetables are absorbed through the roots to help the vegetables grow. I hope that in the future, I can increase the intake of nitrates in my daily diet and improve my cardiovascular health by taking more green vegetables and sugar beets.
The researchers also pointed out that people should take more green vegetables to maintain adequate nutrients in the body, but whether nitrate can continue to lower blood pressure, still need a lot of research to confirm.
