Perhaps you didn’t know, but now you do – beets literally BEAT inflammation and help lower blood pressure. Who woulda’ thought?
Beets are an excellent source of dietary nitrate, which is converted by the body into nitric oxide. Nitric oxide helps improve blood flow throughout the body by opening up the vessels and allowing for more oxygen flow.
Not to mention, beets are also high in betaine, a nutrient that has been associated with lower levels of several inflammatory markers, including C-reactive protein, interleukin-6, and tumour necrosis factor alpha. If you want to beat inflammation, be sure to drink this juice!
This juice is good for 1 serving, and should be made with organic ingredients. Drink it a couple times a week to reap full benefits!
