Beetroot juice

Posted on: 29th September 2016

Is it good for blood pressure?

A glass of beetroot juice every day improves your blood pressure, even if you’re elderly and you’ve already suffered heart failure. The juice, rich in inorganic nitrates, also improves your endurance for aerobic exercise.

How much should I drink?

Drinking around 2.4 ounces of juice, which contains 6 millimoles of inorganic nitrate, every day improved aerobic endurance by 24 per cent after just one week, and reduced systolic blood pressure by 5 to 10 mmHg.
