Beetroot Juice Improves Endurance and Blood Pressure

Scientists at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center have found that a daily dose of beetroot juice significantly improved exercise endurance and blood pressure in elderly patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF).

Researchers found that after a daily dosing (2.4oz) of beetroot juice, aerobic endurance performance increased by 24 percent after just one week.

The evidence suggests that dietary inorganic nitrate supplementation has beneficial effects on blood pressure control, vascular health, exercise capacity and oxygen metabolism.
