My husband swears by beet juice. He drinks three 8oz glasses a day. His doctor put him on blood pressure meds about a year ago and within six months, he lost 40 pounds and was taken off his medication.
He didn't do anything else besides watch his portion sizes of his meals. The claims are that a glass of it can temporarily reduce blood pressure for 24 hours, so he drinks it daily.
This is anecdotal evidence at best and only because my husband was completely against taking any medication. He also was able to get off his cholesterol meds. He stopped drinking it for a while and his blood pressure started reading high again, so he got back into drinking it daily.
