The Health Benefits of Beets
- Balance the blood pressure
Beet juice can decrease high blood pressure. In one study, it was concluded that a glass of freshly-made beet juice lowered the systolic pressure by 4 to 5 points, on average. This is believed to be a result of the nitrates in beets which are transformed into nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide will relax and spread the blood vessels and thus, better the blood flow and minimize the blood pressure.
- Fight off inflammation
Beets have betaine, a nutrient which keeps the cells, enzymes, and proteins safe from environmental stress. Moreover, it has anti-inflammatory power, protects the organs, boosts the performance, and may avert chronic illnesses.
- Anti-cancer power
The phytonutrients in beets may be able to keep cancer at bay. According to research, extract from beets successfully lowered formation of tumors in laboratory animals.
- Supports the body’s detox processes
The betalin pigments in beets enhance the process of breaking down toxins and their binding to other molecules so that they are eliminated from the body. Beets have the power to cleanse the blood and the liver.
- Elevates the energy levels
If you are in need of an additional energy boost for your next workout, opt for beet juice. This may have to do with the transformation of nitrates to nitric oxide and may decrease the oxygen spent for low-intensity workout and increase the tolerance for high-intensity workout.
