Absence Of An Effect Of High Nitrate Intake From Beetroot Juice On Blood Pressure In Treated Hypertensive Individuals: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Notes for this study:
||Plasma nitrate was raised from 36.2 micromol/L with low-nitrate beetroot juice to 123.4 micromol/L with high-nitrate beetroot juice
|Number of Subjects
||Obese, Overweight, Average
Randomized, double-blind crossover trial of 70mL high-nitrate beetroot juice twice a day for a week versus a low-nitrate beetroot control in people on 1-3 medications for hypertension. Although blood, salivary, and urinary nitrates and nitrites increased with high-nitrate beetroot treatment, there was no effect on blood pressure over the course of a week.
