Beet Juice Improves Blood Flow

As part of my new years resolutions, I will occsaionally offer healthiness stuff that is easy to do and highly beneficial. Along those lines, here is an interesting article on the healthy aspects of beet juice. Of course as with anything, taken in moderation...

Here is the topline of what the article on future pundit says:

Researchers for the first time have shown that drinking beet juice can increase blood flow to the brain in older adults – a finding that could hold great potential for combating the progression of dementia. The research findings are available online in Nitric Oxide: Biology and Chemistry, the peer-reviewed journal of the Nitric Oxide Society and will be available in print soon. (Read the abstract.)

I think anything in moderation is good. I have read however that an excessive amount of beets is also not good for you. For example, if you are having fresh squeezed vegetable juice, beets are added in small amounts along with other vegetable. A full glass beet juice is decidely NOT healthy. It is too powerful - hard on the kidneys. You would mix it with something that dilutes it like celery.

So resolve to eat healthier .. and read all the labels.

Canned foods are not really good for you. But this link will take to a other products that are healthier. There are no raw beets on amaxzon....
