1 – Beetroot juice and blood pressure
According to a study, 1 daily cup of beetroot juice can help reduce blood pressure. Individuals having high blood pressure who drank about a cup of beetroot juice each day had a reduction in blood pressure of approximately 10 mm Hg. The beetroot juice’s nitrate content is the reason for its blood pressure reducing effects. The nitrate in beetroot juice increases the nitric oxide levels in the blood.
