Can’t Be Beet

beets1

Drinking a single glass of beet juice appears to lower men’s blood pressure almost immediately, a small study finds. Within hours, the beet juice lowered systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure reading) by an average of four to five points in 15 healthy male volunteers compared to baseline blood pressures. That decrease may seem small, but on a public health level, it could equate to a 10% reduction in deaths from hert disease, though more research is needed. Fifteen women also participated in the study, and while beet juice lowered their blood pressure a little, the drop was not significant.
