I read recently that beet juice is good for better blood pressure. Beets are rich in nitrates which help to relax blood vessels and improve blood flow. Some say that beet juice will lower systolic blood pressure in just a matter of few hours! Plus it is really delicious…Jump to Recipe

Beet juice, beet juice, beet juice! Am I just aging myself here?
Instead of summoning a freaky little dude, beet juice summons health in your body, reducing blood pressure, building red blood cells, fighting cancer, dissolving stones in the kidneys, liver and bladder, and lowering cholesterol. As a bonus, it tastes surprisingly good, especially when mixed with a little apple, carrot and ginger juices.
How to Make Beet Juice for Better Blood pressure
When I feel the need to replenish and restore, either do to over-indulgence or over-exertion, I turn to juicing. Green juice made from kale is my juice of choice, but sometimes it’s good to mix it up a bit too. Today, in an attempt to rid my fridge of pounds of produce before my next produce box arrived, I decided to make beet juice. Here’s what you’ll need if you want to make it too:
- 3 large beets scrubbed, root end removed, and quartered
- 2 large apples halved
- 5 large carrots scrubbed
- a large 1-inch hunk of ginger
Beets are kind of ugly, brownish red orbs, with long root ends that resemble a rat’s tale. But inside, they are the most gorgeous shade of magenta. Something that intensely colorful has got to be good for us, right?

Beet, Carrot, Apple & Ginger Juice
- Pass the beets, apples, carrots and ginger through a juice extractor according to manufacturers directions.
- Remove the pulp from the pulp receptacle and pass it through the juicer again (you’d be surprised how much more juice can be extracted from it).
- Serve immediately.
