A study released in the journal Hypertension reviewed data on Beetroot Juice. The study found that drinking 250 ml (about a cup) of Beetroot juice daily can lower blood pressure by about 7 mmHg. This effect can equal that of a prescription drug!
Perhaps more importantly, beetroot juice has been shown to improve the function of the lining of the inside of the arteries.
Beets can help! Just, watch for added sugars.
