Notes for this study:
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.
