The Power of Beetroot Juice: A Natural Ally in Managing Blood Pressure

  This post may contain affiliate links
Beetroot Juice

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a common health issue that can lead to serious conditions like heart disease and stroke. While medications are often prescribed to manage hypertension, natural remedies like beetroot juice are gaining popularity for their potential health benefits. Beetroot juice, derived from the humble beet, is rich in nitrates and other compounds that can support cardiovascular health. Let’s delve into the ways beetroot juice can help manage blood pressure.

The Science Behind Beetroot Juice and Blood Pressure

Beetroot juice is packed with nitrates, which the body converts into nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a molecule that plays a crucial role in vasodilation, the widening of blood vessels. This process helps to lower blood pressure by allowing blood to flow more freely. Research has shown that the nitrates in beetroot juice can significantly reduce systolic blood pressure, the top number in a blood pressure reading, which measures the pressure in your arteries when your heart beats.

Clinical Evidence Supporting Beetroot Juice

Numerous studies have highlighted the blood pressure-lowering effects of beetroot juice. One notable study published in the journal *Hypertension* found that participants who consumed beetroot juice experienced a reduction in blood pressure within hours. Another study in the *British Journal of Nutrition* reported sustained blood pressure reduction with daily intake of beetroot juice. These findings suggest that beetroot juice can be an effective natural remedy for managing hypertension. 

A recent meta-analysis found 11 studies proving beetroot juice lowers blood pressure. 

Additional Health Benefits of Beetroot Juice

Beyond its impact on blood pressure, beetroot juice offers a range of other health benefits:

1. **Enhanced Exercise Performance**: The nitrates in beetroot juice can improve oxygen delivery to muscles, enhancing endurance and performance during exercise.

2. **Anti-Inflammatory Properties**: Beetroot juice contains antioxidants like betalains, which have anti-inflammatory effects that can benefit overall health.

3. **Rich in Nutrients**: Beetroot juice is a good source of essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, folate, and potassium, which support various bodily functions.

4. **Digestive Health**: The fiber content in beetroot juice can promote healthy digestion and prevent constipation.

Incorporating Beetroot Juice into Your Diet

To reap the benefits of beetroot juice, get it into your daily routine. 

– **Start Small**: If you’re new to beetroot juice, start with a small amount to allow your body to adjust. Gradually increase your intake.

– **Mix It Up**: Beetroot juice has a strong, earthy flavor that may be overwhelming for some. Try mixing it with other juices, like apple or carrot, to create a more palatable blend.

– **Use Fresh Beets**: For the best results, use fresh beets to make your juice. This ensures you get the maximum amount of nutrients and nitrates.

– **Consistency is Key**: To see sustained benefits, make beetroot juice a regular part of your diet. Consistent intake is crucial for maintaining the blood pressure-lowering effects.

– **Make it Organic**: Pesticides are bad. GMOs, common in beets, are bad.

Precautions and Considerations

While beetroot juice is generally safe for most people, it’s important to be aware of potential side effects. Some individuals may experience beeturia, a harmless condition where urine and stool turn red or pink. Additionally, people with kidney stones or those prone to oxalate-containing stones should consult their doctor before consuming beetroot juice regularly. I don’t feel this is a problem when on a Paleo diet. 

Watch BP when on prescription medications and using beetroot as your blood pressure can drop. Ideally, you get off the medications. Speak with your doc or work with us. 


Beetroot juice is a powerful natural remedy with significant potential to lower blood pressure and support overall cardiovascular health. Its rich nitrate content, combined with a host of other nutrients, makes it a valuable addition to a heart-healthy diet. As with any dietary change, it’s best to consult with a healthcare professional to ensure it aligns with your individual health needs. Embrace the power of beetroot juice and take a natural step towards better blood pressure management and improved health.

About Dr. Lauren Lattanza NMD, FACC

Dr. Lattanza Office Visit with Patient

As a Naturopathic Physician, I am trained to treat the whole person and get to the root cause of disease.

I went to Arizona State University where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a depth in physiology and minor in Spanish. After my undergraduate degree I was working on prerequisite classes towards medical school, which is when I came to learn that my values identified best with the principles of naturopathic medicine. I knew that I wanted to help patients identify the causes of disease and be able to offer treatments which would improve their health rather than simply treating symptoms.

I dedicated the next 4 years to the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona where I attained my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine. I served as Class President all 4 years, Board of Trustees – Student Trustee, spoke as the Club President for our branch of Toastmasters, and was voted by my peers and attending physicians to earn the Outstanding Leadership Award for the Class of 2020. Throughout medical school I took it upon myself to work alongside MDs, DOs, chiropractors, and functional medicine practitioners in addition to naturopathic physicians.

As a Spanish speaking student, I was able to volunteer with community clinics around Phoenix and provide free healthcare to low-income families. Due to this combined exposure, I came to find my passion in treating cardiometabolic and digestive disorders that are all too common, yet largely preventable. I took the opportunity to learn the broad spectrum of healthcare so I can ensure that I am able to provide my patients with the best options.
