Beet greens have a high concentration of potassium and help increase nitrates. Potassium is a key element in regulating blood pressure. Nitrates are converted to nitric oxide to expand blood vessels and reduce platelet aggregation to prevent blockages or blood clots. A substance known as betaine is also found in beet greens and acts on specific amino acids to inhibit plaque development in arteries.
