Abstract

The cardio-protective effects of beetroot, such as blood pressure reduction have been attributed to its high nitrate content. Following ingestion, dietary nitrate is reduced to nitrite by oral bacteria, and further to the vasodilator nitric oxide (NO) endogenously. This study investigated the effects of enriching bread with nitrate-rich beetroot on postprandial peripheral microvascular function and blood pressure (BP).
