Study Shows Beet Juice Lowers Blood Pressure in 3 Hours!
A 2 in diameter beet contains about 35 calories and 8 gms of carbohydrates.
From Dr Al Sears When you eat it, the beet root is mixed with your saliva and bacteria on your tongue. This combo turns into nitric oxide.
When it gets to your stomach, another reaction occurs, and the natural nitrate is recirculated throughout your body. This helps your blood vessels relax and eases your blood pressure. You see the biggest drop 3-4 hours after eating beet root. But the effects last for up to 24 hours.8
You can get the most out of beet roots by either chewing them raw or throwing them in your juicer. You can also get the root extract in powder or capsule form. Take up to 1 gram of it each day.
