Food for hypertension - beetroot juice

Natural remedy for high blood pressure - drink beetroot juice. Want to bring down your blood pressure? Drink beetroot juice.

Amrita Ahluwalia, Professor of Vascular Pharmacology at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry researching the effect of drinking beetroot juice or taking nitrate tablets have shown that both brought down blood pressure within 24 hours. Apparently, the higher the blood pressure, the greater the magnitude of decrease in blood pressure. Their research paper was published the US journal Hypertension

It seemed the nitrate in the beetroot juice when eaten is changed to nitric oxide gas
and this gas keeps the blood vessels open and relaxed and thus reduces the blood pressure.

I drink beet juice (blended together with other goodies such as tomato, cucumber, apple, kiwi, etc) for about a month now. I must say I feel great after starting drinking beet juice. The taste of raw beet is strong. I do recommend adding a bit of lemon juice to the beet juice as it will make it tastes better.

Beet is no doubt one of the super foods.
