In plain language, if your blood vessels have trouble expanding or contracting to handle changes in blood flow, you might need some nitric oxide in your blood stream from vegetable juices, vegetables, and fruit. And if you have thick blood that clots too easily, beet juice may have anti-clotting, called anti-platelet properties.
Beets are one vegetable among many such as lettuce, spinach, and most green, leafy vegetables high in nitrates. Dietary nitrates help to increase the amount of nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide (NO) helps blood vessels relax, lowering blood pressure. Nitric oxide (NO) has anti-inflammatory activity as well inhibits blood clot formation somewhat.

He requested that I stop taking LDN and vitamin D even though I don't get in the sun much to make vitamin D. He said he had read something on the internet about gthe dangers of vitamin d supplementation being dangerous if uou get tooo much. Was taking whole food grown selemium and chromium and he said those were toxic metals and that I needed to stop taking them. I'll admit I've tried my share of different supplements. I think some have been helpful and others haven't. I think I would do well to supplement with calcium, zinc, vit B complex, vitamin D, vitamin E, a good mineral complex and other things that may be helpful.
