Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps out blood.

Dr. Coles LT, the lead scientist in the research team of the heart and diabetes program at the Baker IDI Heart & Diabetes Institute, Melbourne showed that consumption of beetroot juice on a low nitrate diet may lower blood pressure (BP)the major risk factor of cardiovascular events.
The results was based on a total of 50 women and 15 men participated in a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, crossover study.
Particpants were randomized to receive 500 g of beetroot and apple juice (BJ) or a placebo juice (PL).
Volunteers also had BP measured at baseline and at least hourly for 24-h following juice consumption using an ambulatory blood pressure monitor (ABPM).
Analysis in men only (n=13) after adjustment for baseline differences demonstrated a significant (P<0.05) reduction in SBP of 4 - 5 mmHg at 6-h after drinking BJ.
