Upwards of 15 MILLION Americans have high blood pressure (huffingtonpost). But there is one supplement in particular that can help these millions live longer, healthier lives: BEETS.
Archaeological records indicate that we have used beet roots and leaves for teas, medicines, dyes, and eating since the third millennium BC. It has since been believed that beets can do much more than just provide a rich red color (huffingtonpost).
Let’s See Why
BEET ROOT (in food or supplement form) is one of the best sources of nitrate. When we consume beet root, our bodies convert natural nitrate to nitric oxide, which relaxes muscles in the blood vessel walls and lowers blood pressure. It has been verified that drinking beet root juice boosts blood levels of nitric oxide, helping to reduce blood pressure (livestrong).
Since beet root supplementation promotes nitric oxide production in muscles, and blood flow thus increases, improved levels of oxygen could support muscle contraction. One study “reported that swimmers who took beet root juice supplements performed better and used less energy to perform the task. Another study found that competitive cyclists improved their performance by nearly 3 percent in 4-kilometer and 16-kilometer time trials” (livestrong). In fact, it is alleged that “Leicester City used beet juice to great effect in their Premier League title-winning season” (coachingmag).

Beet root juice’s natural antioxidants, betaines, have been found to lower blood sugar. A study showed that compared to subjects who did not drink beet root juice, subjects who did consume it had considerably lower blood sugar after consuming carbs (livestrong).
