Beet may hold a potential use as a functional food in reduced levels of fat and cholesterol in patient with hyperlipidemia

Hyperlipidemia is a medical condition characterized by high cholesterol and fat in the blood stream.

Beet, best known as the beetroot or garden beet and belongings to the amaranth family, is a perennial plant with leafy stems growing to 1–2 m tall.

According to the study of rats fed with high fat diet induced hypercholesterol showed a significant reduced levels of fat and cholesterol through expression of liver protective effects by examined rat lipid profile of total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides and histopathological analysis of liver, after treatment with beetroot.

Lipoproteins are basically fat and cholesterol, along with a lipid membrane containing proteins called apolipoproteins with function to transport lipid molecules in blood stream and extracellular our body.

Lipoprotein(a) or Lp(a) calculated by low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) in the blood stream from measured levels of total cholesterol, triglycerides and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) may be an important marker for the risk developing of heart disease.

Other, in the double-blinded, placebo-controlled study of  patients older than 40 years, subjects instructed to take either the NO dietary supplement called Neo40 Daily® or placebo twice daily on an empty stomach for 30 days, NO dietary supplement group showed a significant increase in both plasma nitrite (P < .01) and nitrate with elevated triglycerides reduced by 72% in compared placebo group.

Nitrite is a group of chemical compound containing the anion NO2− and Nitrate has a chemical symbol of NO31-
Nitrates are relatively harmless, if they are  not taken in high amounts.

The study also emphasized the achievement of nitrite reductase activity of nitrate-rich beetroot juice in improven NO status, involving decreased and modify cardiovascular risk factors, including high levels of triglycerides in the circulatory system.

Also, in a randomized controlled 5-week crossover intervention, separated by a 3-week washout involved subjects (n = 25) aged 58.6 (1.1) years (mean and SD) with a BMI of 26.6 (0.5) kg/m(2) and a total cholesterol (TC) of 5.8 (0.1) mmol/L (mean and SEM) given a high fiber (HF) and low fiber (LF) diet, treatment of high fiber (HF) group, expressed a Significant reduction in C-reactive protein (CRP) and a significant reduction in fibrinogen.

Fibrinogen, is an essential protein for blood clot formation.

Although the study found no influence of beet fiber in contribution to lower of blood cholesterol but ameliorated the inflammatory effect in induced cardiovascular disease of hypperlipidemic patients.

More importantly, nitrates and nitrites occur naturally in vegetables and also used as preservative added to in many foods including meat products. Injection of high amount in the body may induce anemic-like disorders and cancers.

Taking together, whole food and nitrate-rich beetroot juice may have a potential effect in reduced risk high blood cholesterol inducing heart disease through elevated levels of antioxidants and hepo- protection.
