Beetroots are purple-red bulbs that can be eaten both boiled and raw. Because of their rich composition, they are very beneficial to health as they are a very good source of folic acid, magnesium, potassium, copper, iron, fiber and protein.
Many studies over the past decades have focused their interest and highlighted the benefit of drinking beetroot juice for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Although it has not been proven, there is a lot of evidence that taking on regular basis beetroot juice, it can help men both achieve a better erection and keep it longer during the sex.
Beetroot juice is rich in nitrates, which are further metabolized in nitric acid (NO). Nitric acid helps significantly in maintaining blood pressure, which helps in erection. People with hypertension can also benefit from beetroot juice. When there is high blood pressure, the body has difficulty sending blood to the genitals, resulting in a poor erection. Nitric acid and Cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), which is increased by nitrates, have the ability to cause vasodilatation, thereby facilitating the flow of blood to the penis.
Like all juices, it is ideally consumed daily and fresh. Because it may seem bitter, you can combine it with celery, ginger, apple or orange. Beetroot juice is safe, however, it is recommended that people with diabetes and hypertension or those who have a history of oxalic stones should first consult their physician.
