Well, I read enough that I made a purchase of powdered beet root and beet root juice. Both sitting in my cabinet. Afraid to try either one of them for fear of gagging but would like to figure out what to do with them.
This sounds like something you don't know too much about. :>) I read about it on another forum and since have read more about it and there does seem to be a correlation between using beets and lowing blood pressure successfully. Beet juice, powdered beets are methods of ingesting. Here is a thread to read on BP about it: https://www.medhelp.org/posts/High-Blood-Pressure---Hypertension/BP-rising-again-question--thanks/show/3052266
Not sure how this would work. Beets are a great food, but are they talking about beets with tops, the best way to eat them, or just the root? We all know beets for iron and digestion. The question would be, what is in beets that would slow down your blood flow? I know hawthorn does this. Other plants do this. Have no idea why beets would, so what's the nutrient in beets that does this? On the other hand, if these people are substituting beets for foods that are known to help raise blood pressure, maybe that's what's happening. The fact beets are pretty high in sugar makes one wonder, th0ugh. And if you eat a lot of them, be prepared for more toilet time.
