BEETS ARE HEART HEALTHY
According to the latest issue of Hypertension: Journal of the American Heart Association, Dr. Amrita Ahluwalia and her research team from Queen Mary University of London found that, “Drinking a cup of nitrate-rich beetroot juice significantly lowered blood pressure (BP) in hypertensive individuals.” Beet juice is thought to accomplish this by dilating the arteries via a conversion of organic nitrites into nitric oxide (NO) — a powerful vasodilator that many are familiar with from its use in bodybuilding supplements.
Can’t find good beets in your neck of the woods? Never fear, Standard Process is here. A product that I particularly like for my patients (and myself when beets are not available) is AF BETAFOOD. DR. ROYAL LEE formulated AF Betafood back in 1951, which was itself based on a product (BETAFOOD) that was formulated 70 years ago (1943) —- during the peak of WWII. Why do I love the Whole Food Ideology behind Standard Process so much? It’s utter simplicity is a breath of fresh air in our hi-tech world. Man can never improve on something made by God (HERE).
