Does the beet juice increase iron in the blood, or is it an independent mechanism to increase oxygen? Reply D34tho says: September 30, 2015 at 12:52 pm "after few weeks of beeting themselves up" lol Reply SandyzSerious says: September 30, 2015 at 1:06 pm Excellent! ! Reply SulforaphaneMeUp says: September 30, 2015 at 1:17 pm I now add beets to my morning shake. I buy the ones from Costco. They come cooked and peeled in packages of 4. It probably isn't the best way to do it but it sure makes it easy. Reply zxc says: September 30, 2015 at 1:59 pm "A little extra color in the pee" was what's keeping me away from eating beets but thanks to the Dr. Greger I'm planning to pee in pink from now on. 🙆😁😆 Reply TheAtheistPaladin says: September 30, 2015 at 2:02 pm I am going to add beat juice to my green smoothies. Lets see how that works out. Reply tdreamgmail says: September 30, 2015 at 2:18 pm How much beet juice are talking about per day? Raw beets juice or cooked beet juice? Because my local store has the cooked beet ones almost all season round, but the raw beets are only in season. Reply Joseph1NJ says: September 30, 2015 at 2:34 pm So was the benefit only temporary, as in directly after ingestion of the NO increasing beets, or was it cumulative? In other words, what was the half life, or duration of the increased blood flow post beats? And how much? Do you need to have some daily? Reply Joseph1NJ says: September 30, 2015 at 2:40 pm Imagine the supp. companies seeing this info; it would spike sales of NO booster pills. Reply Karsten Von Fjellheim says: September 30, 2015 at 3:13 pm Have you not heard of "beet-dick"? That "it's like viagra". Reply Michael Janavel says: September 30, 2015 at 3:23 pm I have anemia. This should help. Reply mathyou says: September 30, 2015 at 5:36 pm Loved all the puns, and you can't beet that closer. Reply SuperAtheist says: September 30, 2015 at 6:07 pm Are beets special or could one eat arugula instead?... Reply burnsport1 says: September 30, 2015 at 7:34 pm Getting my master's in nutrition and find Dr. Greger's channel invaluable Reply Corvux IX says: September 30, 2015 at 8:55 pm But beets contain too much oxalates, and may give you kidney stones 🙁 Reply burnsport1 says: October 1, 2015 at 12:36 am Dr. Greger – have you considered doing a video on grain/legume lectins and whether or not they contribute to intestinal permeability? I'm guessing and hoping that they don't Reply ParadisePromises says: October 1, 2015 at 3:23 am One question please!I don't like the taste of beets or beet juice.Can I add them to a smoothie and still get the same effectiveness? Reply musaire says: October 1, 2015 at 3:46 am +Papaya LoverHow come it is not possible to reply to your comment directly. :O Anyway, there is 3 oxygen (O) atoms in NO3 (nitrate). I'd be happy with just that O there. You want that oxygen to summon extra iron for you as well?

Reply Jennie McCluskey says: October 1, 2015 at 12:38 pm I think you forgot to mention about leafy greens & arugula…..because not everyone likes beets! http://nutritionfacts.org/video/vegetables-rate-by-nitrate/ Reply Sharon Shores says: October 1, 2015 at 12:41 pm Nitrate rich or GMO rich? Look up the fact that 95% of beets are genetically modified! Reply I am the great Deadpoolio says: October 1, 2015 at 12:50 pm the puns are strong with this one!

You're so very punny, Dr. Greger!! 😂 Reply Edith Spencer says: October 2, 2015 at 6:41 pm After making beet juice, you can add the pulp into recipes to make crackers and (vegan) chocolate cake. Or just eat the whole beets- just cut them up, and toss with a little oil, some salt and pepper and some herbs if you have it. Roast, covered in foil, for about 40 minutes at 350F. Now you have super tasty beets that you can eat hot or cold. Reply HighCarb Schwabe says: October 2, 2015 at 6:56 pm Dr. Greger says that arugula is even higher in nitrates. Excellent, I just bought 8 150g packs of arugula for 29c/pack! I'll try a smoothie with three packs of arugula followed by a 10k race tomorrow 🙂 Reply Josh Howson says: October 4, 2015 at 11:20 pm Too many punns. lol Reply IResonateWithU says: October 5, 2015 at 12:10 am Dr Greger needs a tv show. Seriously. Reply 777Iwish says: October 5, 2015 at 7:40 am great read, Dr. Greger, May we all make use of these findings.

Reply Reinventing My Life says: October 8, 2015 at 8:05 pm you can't make billions on beets……………….vunerable people who are sick don't want to eat healthy and sick people generate $$ Reply theholeymes1 says: October 10, 2015 at 6:28 am Can you drink raw beet juice or you have to wait 30 min before you drink it? Reply Bane says: October 10, 2015 at 6:52 pm Do you reap all the benefits with boiled beet also ?? Reply Sandy Toomer says: October 12, 2015 at 11:11 am Are Golden Beets as powerful as the Red Beets? Reply theneedledrop says: October 16, 2015 at 3:11 pm You're BEETING these puns to death, Doc! Reply Alan Heath says: October 19, 2015 at 8:07 pm The reason why beet juice manufacturers are not allowed to say that it is vegetable viagra or something similar is because in the EU there is a law against making medical claims without proof. Conveniently for the lobbyists, what constitutes proof is not clearly defined. Reply VeganGains'SlightlyLessRetardedTwin says: December 14, 2015 at 4:12 am Why are nitrates and nitrites attacked when they are founded in cured, processed meats like bacon, but they're hailed as beneficial when found in plants? Reply Greg Letter says: May 23, 2016 at 2:48 am I'm assuming that the beet juice is from raw beets, is that right ? Reply Hüseyin YİĞİT says: May 26, 2016 at 1:05 pm Thats why doctor's doesn't like Nutritionists.

Reply kaship98 says: July 24, 2016 at 12:38 am I don't get it…what's the nitrate in bacon, then? Reply Don says: July 30, 2016 at 4:37 am I find that green leafy raw cruciferous vegetables are bitter and taste awful. Reply Peppermint says: August 9, 2016 at 7:10 pm Yes but a pressure change of only 5mmHg does it really matter when high pressure is around 150mmHg? That's a 3% change. Reply Sam W. Bruton says: May 3, 2017 at 9:36 pm Certain vegetables might actually clean the blood of waste & toxins which free up space for oxygen to fill in via the lungs.

But HOW MUCH beetroot juice were they taking? Did they throw one beet and a bottle of water in a blender and whip it up? Reply SNAP Vegan says: July 9, 2017 at 7:04 am Beets cooked or raw prior to juicing?

Reply Yur Jhr says: October 2, 2019 at 1:07 pm You know Mrs. Gregor is getting that D. Reply METO U says: October 8, 2019 at 2:35 am and exactly where do you think that pharmaceutical companies get the nitrates for their medicines…it doesn't come out of thin air and they don't make it from scratch…nitrates and nitrites are food preservatives that are used on cured meats to extend shelf life and to make them reddish to give a more natural appearance…they are essentially a nitrogen atom that is surrounded by different numbers of oxygen atoms in some way…this protects the food from oxidation…which is why food goes bad…but batteries are possible because of oxidation…they use a process called redox reaction…reduction/ oxidation…simply put its when 1 thing gains electrons/ energy and the other side loses some…its also how your body divides cells…literally the same exact thing…u are a battery…nitrates/nitrites make blood pressure lower because it itself will be metabolized into nitrogen and oxygen…which makes them a good 2nd hand source for oxygen to supplement the oxygen that you breathe…which puts much less stress on your body to function normally Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
