For many people with hypertension or high blood pressure, proper diet and exercise can control the condition and limit symptoms. Following a healthy diet can reduce the need for medication and can lower the risk of heart disease or stroke due to high blood pressure.
Beets are one of the best foods for lowering blood pressure. Making fresh beet juice a consistent part of your diet can help reduce the risk of heart disease by keeping blood pressure low. The nitrates in beets can help relax and widen blood vessels, which will help lower blood pressure. A common side effect of beet juice is pink urine or feces, but this is harmless.
