Prevent and delay Alzheimer's disease
A study from Wake Forest University in the United States showed that nitrate in beetroot can help fight dementia. Nitric oxide produced by nitrate in the blood can increase blood flow to the brain, effectively improve the blood circulation of the brain, and help stimulate cognitive ability, thereby preventing the occurrence of dementia in the elderly. At the same time, the abundant folic acid in beetroot also plays a role in Alzheimer's disease.
A study published in the American Heart Association's "Hypertension" journal showed that beetroot is rich in nitrates, about 20 times more than normal vegetables. Nitrate can help increase the concentration of nitric oxide in the blood, which helps to relax smooth muscle, relax blood vessels, relieve hardening of the blood vessels, and promote blood circulation. Research suggests that drinking a cup of 250 ml of beetroot juice or eating one or two cooked beetroots a day can be the most effective natural way to lower blood pressure and reduce cardiovascular risk.

The British "BBC" news has reported that drinking 500 ml of beetroot juice a day can help the physical strength increase by as much as 16%, and help restore the body's immune system and reduce the chance of chronic inflammation.
