What the study says?
In a meta-analysis by the Journal of Nutrition, nitrate and beetroot juice and how it could help lower blood pressure was investigated.
The study noted: “Diets including food products rich in inorganic nitrate are associated with lower blood pressure.”
The researchers found that beetroot juice supplementation was associated with a significant reduction in systolic blood pressure.
Dr Shannon Amoils, British Heart Foundation’s senior research advisor said: “This interesting study builds on previous research by this team and finds that a daily glass of beetroot juice can lower blood pressure in people with hypertension, even those whose high blood pressure was not controlled by drug treatment.”
