Fresh Beets & Garlic for High Blood Pressure

If you have high blood pressure, try juicing fresh raw beets and eating raw garlic. A softball size beet root will make about 6—7 oz of juice. Combine that with an apple and 1/2 lemon for taste. Drink twice a day! Beets have a lot of nitrite/nitrate in them and from a study done, it was found fresh beet juice reduced blood pressure on average of 10 mm Hg.
