Beetroot is full of nitrates which are natural chemicals found in soil, air, and water.

Nitric oxide aids in the process of regulating other bodily functions, from digestion to blood flow to memory and vision. But as we get older, our bodies produce less nitric oxide due to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or emotional stress, increasing our risk of cardiovascular disease and in some cases, Alzheimer’s.
