The Benefits of Beet Juice
According to recent research, inorganic nitrates in beet juice are converted in the body to nitrite and nitric oxide, a molecule involved in blood vessel dilation. As a result, beet juice has been found to enhance blood flow to muscles and to the brain. Here’s a look at several beet juice benefits that have been explored in scientific studies.
1) Lower High Blood Pressure
Drinking beet juice daily can lower high blood pressure.
2) Exercise Performance and Stamina
Often consumed by athletes to improve performance, some studies suggest that drinking beet juice may help boost stamina and improve exercise performance.
Beet juice may benefit obese people by curbing inflammation (a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer).
The natural red color of beet juice may temporarily add a red tinge to urine and stools.
