Beetroot juice 'lowers' BP6th February 2008
New UK research has revealed that drinking 500ml of beetroot juice a day can have a significant impact in reducing blood pressure.
The study was conducted by Barts and the London School of Medicine and the Peninsula Medical School and found that the main beneficial ingredients seemed to be nitrate, which is found in green, leafy vegetables. It could provide a low-cost way to treat hypertension after it emerged that in healthy volunteers blood pressure was reduced within an hour of drinking the juice.
