According to the British "Daily Mail", beetroot can increase energy and increase endurance. Beetroot is the main raw material used to make sugar. Because of its betaine content, the root bark and root meat are purple-red. Modern scientific research proves that sugar radish not only has rich nutritional value, but also has high medicinal value.

In addition, researchers have found that drinking a glass of beetroot juice daily for ordinary people can also lower blood pressure and promote heart health. Nitrate is the active ingredient in beet juice and leafy vegetables such as spinach, arugula, and celery. Previous research has found that dietary nitrate can improve muscle performance in competitive sports athletes. During exercise (especially aerobic exercise), nitrate can be converted into nitric oxide, which exerts various beneficial effects on blood pressure and cardiovascular health.

A new study published in Circulation showed that patients with heart failure improved their muscle strength after insisting on a diet rich in nitrate significantly, which is abundant in beetroot.

To investigate whether heart failure patients can benefit from beetroot juice as much as athletes, researchers Linda R. Peterson and colleagues at the University of Washington School of Medicine selected 9 patients, taking themselves as controls and receiving them at intervals of 1 to 2 weeks. Intervention with nitrate- and nitrate-free beet juice. It was found that two hours after drinking beetroot juice, patients who took nitrate-containing beet juice increased their knee strength by 13%, and benefited even more during maximum stride exercise. So it can prove that beetroot can increase energy and increase endurance.

Andrew R. Coggan of the University of Washington School of Medicine commented that the effect of beet juice on muscle strength in patients with heart failure is comparable to the effect of resistance training in 2 to 3 months. In view of the increasingly serious problem of population aging, and as the age increases, the muscle strength of the human body will gradually weaken, affecting daily life. Researchers want to further study the role of nitrate in the elderly.

Beetroot contains iodine, which has certain effects on preventing goiter and preventing atherosclerosis. Beetroot also contains a considerable amount of magnesium, which can regulate the hardening strength of softened blood vessels and prevent the formation of thrombus, which is important for the treatment of hypertension. Beetroot also contains a large amount of cellulose and pectin, which has been found to have anti-gastric ulcer functions.
