Beet Juice Reduces Blood Pressure Naturally

Blood Pressure Medication Found in a Juice

It’s ridiculous…

I’m a fit woman. I eat healthier than almost anyone I know. I exercise 5 days a week. And yet, every time I go to the doctor my blood pressure is high. Sometimes dangerously high. Talk about frustrating. And I know I’m not alone. There are a lot of us out there. We do everything we can but we can’t seem to get our blood pressure under control.

Now my doctor has even hinted that perhaps it’s time I start thinking about going on medication.

Heck no!

I’m really not interested in feeling constipated, getting headaches, or feeling drowsy.1 And that’s if I’m lucky. Some of these “medicines” cause cancer.2  Some—ironically enough—cause heart attacks and death.3

And according to the American Heart Association’s website regarding BP prescriptions, “Follow your recommendations carefully, even if it means taking medication every day for the rest of your life.”4

Every day…for the rest of my life? No thank you!

This is something that affects me personally. And I feel very strongly about it. That’s why I’m personally addressing this issue today, rather than just sending you an article on the subject. My researchers just told me about a natural solution that I already started incorporating in to my regular routine.  I’ll follow up with you to let you know how it goes. And please, you do the same. Let me explain…

Researchers have found a solution in the form of a juice. An Australian study showed how this specific juice helped lower the blood pressure in healthy, disease-free adults.5 That’s right. People like me.

Subjects drank either the juice or a placebo. Researchers measured blood pressure at the start of the study and hourly for 24 hours following the consumption of the juice.

After just SIX hours the juice drinkers had lower blood pressure. Men in particular showed significant reductions.

Another study from the UK confirms the findings.6 This time subjects drank 500 mL of the juice. But this time it only took three hours for the juice to substantially reduce blood pressure! Even better…the drop in blood pressure lasted for up to 24 hours after they drank the juice. It lowered blood pressure by a whopping 10 points. Blood pressure medication doesn’t even work that well.

What is this fast-acting natural blood pressure lowering treatment?

Beet juice.

It’s also known as beetroot juice.

Beet juice is high in nitrates, which showed to be the element at work in lowering blood pressure. Nitrate is a chemical made up of nitrogen and oxygen.7 You can find it in foods, especially carrots, celery, and of course…beets. The nitrates in beet juice prevent clots by helping produce proper blood flow in blood vessels.8

A little bit of beet juice goes a long way. And if you really want to kick it up a notch, blend the beet juice with other vegetables and fruit juices to help your body process it.

Beet juice is inexpensive. You can buy the beets yourself, peel them and juice them. Or you can buy beet juice ready to drink. Just remember to drink small amounts throughout the day or mix it with other juices to help dilute the potency.

The goal is to prevent high blood pressure before it becomes a problem. And a beet may just be the solution. Again, let me know how it works for you. I’ll do the same.
