You Can’t Beat BEETS!!!

Beet Juice—7 Health Benefits

1. Lowers Blood Pressure

Researchers found that people who drank 250 milliliters (or about 8.4 ounces) of beet juice daily lowered both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Nitrates, compounds in beet juice that convert into nitric oxide in the blood and help widen and relax blood vessels, are thought to be the reason.

2. Improves Stamina

According to a small 2012 study drinking beet juice increases plasma nitrate levels and boosts physical performance.

3. May improve muscle power in people with heart failure

Results of a 2015 study suggest that nitrates in beet juice helped people with heart failure experience a 13 percent increase in muscle power 2 hours after drinking beet juice.

4. May slow the progression of dementia

According to a 2011 study nitrates may help increase blood flow to the brain in older people and help slow cognitive decline. After participants consumed a high-nitrate diet that included beet juice, their brain MRIs showed increased blood flow in the frontal lobes. The frontal lobes are associated with cognitive thinking and behavior.

5. May prevent cancer

Beets get their rich color from betalains, which are water-soluble antioxidants. According to a 2016 study, betalains have chemo-preventive abilities against some cancer. Betalains are thought to be free radical scavengers that help find and destroy unstable cells in the body.

6. Supports the liver

You may develop a condition known as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease if your liver becomes overloaded due to the following factors:

  • a poor diet
  • excessive alcohol consumption
  • exposure to toxic substances
  • sedentary lifestyle
  • too much sugar

The antioxidant betaine potentially helps prevent or reduce fatty deposits in the liver. Betaine may also help protect your liver from toxins.

7. May reduce cholesterol

If you have high cholesterol, consider adding beet juice to your diet.

A 2011 study on rats found that beetroot extract lowered total cholesterol and triglycerides and increased HDL, or “good,” cholesterol. It also reduced oxidative stress on the liver. Researchers believe beetroot’s cholesterol-lowering potential is likely due to its flavonoids.
