Beets contain a high concentration of nitrates, which have a blood pressure-lowering effect. This may lead to a reduced risk of heart attacks, heart failure, and stroke. Beets contain nitrates, which may help increase blood flow to the brain, improve cognitive function, and possibly reduce the risk of dementia. Beets are a good source of fiber, which is beneficial for digestive health, as well as reducing the risk of a number of chronic health conditions. Try this sweet while attempting to stay heart healthy!
