Blood Pressure Management with Beetroot Supplements  

Beetroot is rich in nitrates, which boost nitric oxide synthesis. Volpe noted that nitric oxide spontaneously relaxes blood arteries and lowers blood pressure.  

Volpe added that nitrates and “betalain” reduce blood pressure and heart rate.  

According to several human studies, including one on persons with type 2 diabetes-related hypertension, beetroot supplements can significantly lower blood pressure.  

Beet nitrates boost cardiovascular health and brain and body oxygen and nutrient circulation, Myers added.

Beets increase blood flow to the frontal lobe, which controls memory and focus, due to their high nitrate content, Myers added.  

Nitrates and nitric oxide increase muscle oxygen transport, which may increase exercise endurance.
