Health Benefits

• Beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with numerous health benefits, Including improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased exercise performance. Many of these benefits are due to their high content of inorganic nitrates.

• Eating fruits and vegetables rich in inorganic nitrates may cut your risk of heart disease by lowering blood pressure and increasing nitric oxide formation. Studies show that beetroots or their juice can reduce blood pressure by up to 3–10 mm Hg over a period of a few hours.

• Such effects are likely due to increased levels of nitric oxide, which causes your blood vessels to relax and dilate.

• Increased Exercise Capacity
Consumption of beetroots may improve running and cycling performance, increase stamina, boost oxygen use, and lead to better exercise performance overall. Studies suggest that nitrates can enhance physical performance, particularly during high-intensity endurance exercise.
