Q. After reading about beet juice for hypertension, I purchased fermented beet juice from my local health food store. I mixed it with equal parts of apple juice and drank it twice a day. The result was immediate and unbelievable!
Although I have not gone off my blood pressure meds at this point, the reading is low (110/67). After realizing how powerful beet juice is, I decided to cut back to 2 oz mixed with 2 oz of apple juice. The results are the same and I couldn’t be happier.
A. The most recent research shows that a cup of beet juice lowers blood pressure significantly in men (Hypertension, Aug., 2010). Women do not respond as strongly.
