Hard-to-find beet juice helps lower blood pressure

(IndyStar.com) — We are fascinated by the British research indicating that a glass of beet juice can lower blood pressure for several hours (Hypertension, March 2008). In a later study, the same team found that this effect is more pronounced in men, especially those with higher blood pressure to begin with (Hypertension, August 2010).

It is not easy to find beet juice in the average supermarket. One reader found Biotta brand beet juice in 16-ounce bottles at a health-food cooperative market.

The reader drinks a glass several times a week and warned that it can make your urine and stool red.
