beet juice for HBP anyone?

Some medical news last year mentioned that beet juice can lower blood pressure. I want to try some alternative ways to lower mine so I am wondering if anyone has tried this. If you did, did it do anything for you?

I thought about trying it but I didn't find a source of beet juice. Let me know if find something. I don't really want to order it online though and have to pay shipping.

The thought of drinking beet juice turns my stomach. Its almost sickly sweet for me. If you do try it, you would be wise to tell your doctor that you are doing it. You wouldn't want to be going too low because your over medicated.

Beet juice does help lower blood pressure. You are better juicing it yourself using a twin gear juicer... mix it with carrot and spinach juice and make it all fresh every day, (1 pint)... Do not go heavily into the beet juice it will make you sick (literally) until you get used to it.

I add a 1 ins cube to 8 carrots and 2 handfuls of spinach....

regards

Haven't heard about beet juice...eek....but what about green tea? Has anyone hear of this helping? I have also read that squeezing a tennis ball can help lower blood pressure. Something about the action makes you calmer and helps control your heart rate.

Anyone else hear of these too?

I have never heard of green tea reducing blood pressure. Have you read something about it? That would be easier than beet juice. I drink tea all the time so switching wouldn't be hard. As for a tennis ball, it was too stiff. I couldn't focus on it.

That's very interesting concerning beet juice reducing blood pressure. I love beets so this is something I will have to look into.

It's the nitrate in the beets that helps lower blood pressure by increasing blood flow, so I would think just eating cooked beets would do the same thing. There's an article about beetroot here which says you can get the same benefit from eating one or two cooked beetroot each day. That's a more appetising route to follow, I would think.

RE: beet juice for HBP anyone?

One study I've read claims that four weeks consumption of beet juice can effectively lower blood pressure in hypertensive patients. The dietary nitrates in beet juice help to dilate the blood vessels thereby effectively lowering one's blood pressure. The only downside of consuming beetroots is that it can change your urine and stool colours. Although for people with HBP, that might not be a huge downside after all.
