Beetroots have incredibly high concentration of nitrites, which as most studies have shown reduces blood pressure.
A recent study in London showed that only one glass of beetroot juice a day dramatically reduces blood pressure.
The research conducted in Melbourne shows that the pressure is reduced only six hours after you drink half a liter of juice. Scientists concluded that the deaths caused by cardiovascular disease would be significantly reduced if people often consume beetroots.
Studies have shown that beetroot even increases the endurance, so that the consumption of beetroots can reduce the progression of dementia and the growth of tumors – the growth of tumors of the prostate and breast up to 12.5 percent.
Also, nutritionists recommend beetroots and digestive problems and state that it’s good for the liver because it helps in the process of processing the toxins.
