What are the benefits of eating beets?

Beetroot has been in the attention of researchers for some time due to its intake of micronutrients, reaching to be found among the wonder foods only that, unlike others, beets are a common vegetable and affordable.

One of the problems that most people end up facing as they get older is high blood pressure. Because of our high-fat meals, which are deposited on the arteries, they become stiffer. And as we live longer with high blood pressure, it will not be able to fall below a certain value. To prevent this, try red beets, which will be able to lower blood pressure in a few hours.

A meta-analysis of 16 specialized studies brings to the attention of the general public the benefits of beet juice on blood pressure. Administered to study participants, a decrease in blood pressure was noted nitrates of beets. Once they reach the body they are transformed into nitric oxide, which is a natural vasodilator.

Subsequent studies have come to confirm.

Moreover, cardiovascular risk factors are diminished by the same betaines. That means a healthier heart for longer.

Every time you hear about a plant that will treat any type of cancer, it is good to be suspicious and to document yourself further. But the beet has an ace up its sleeve: betaines. Numerous studies have been performed on these phytonutrients and have been shown to slow the growth of tumors of the colon, stomach, lung, breast and prostate.

How it does this could be related to the inhibition of pro-inflammatory enzymes in the tumor. We must point out, however, that these studies were performed by injecting betaine into the tumor, so it is not possible to say whether the ingestion of beets has the same effects..

Another group of researchers, this time from the Wake Forest University research center, linked beet juice to dementia in the elderly due to better oxygenation of the brain.

Beetroot is one of the vegetables with a rich intake of fiber which regulates digestion, preventing constipation. In addition, the fibers keep the feeling of satiety longer.

Beet juice improved the sports performance of participants by almost 3% in a study of cyclists. Although the study of nitrates and their effect on athletic performance is in its infancy, many athletes admit to consuming it.

Re: Greek salad

ioana, I have an idea, maybe you can use roasted peppers instead of raw ones and so you add a certain baking flavor to this healthy summer salad. I'll try it these days too, but I don't know if I'll add oregano, I'm not used to its aroma.

Ioana 8 years ago - June 30, 2009 14:45

Re: Greek salad

I even had baked peppers when I made it, I made an eggplant salad with baked peppers and feta, but I didn't think to put it in a Greek salad. That's a good idea, thank you
instead of oregano, try with a little parsley and chopped basil (fresh) to give color and aroma to the dressing.

Re: Greek salad

I used to prepare Greek salad very often but occasionally I only put dried basil, tonight I prepared it with oregano, it's something else, more fragrant, more refreshing.

Ioana 8 years ago - 9 July 2009 11:29

Re: Greek salad

Although basil is more fragrant than fresh oregano, when it dries it loses its aroma, while oregano is more fragrant when dry.

Re: Greek salad

Welcome back, Ioana! Looks like we were on vacation all of a sudden (I was going to say together).
Greek salad has been my favorite for about 20 years! That's when I first tasted it at my cousin's, who had just returned from a trip to Greece, and I was forever enchanted by her. Sometimes I "improve" it with an ingredient, like this, for the love of art. By the way, Diana H., you can try dill if you don't like oregano. it's something.
