Oxygenating Blood With Nitrate-Rich Vegetables

DESCRIPTION: Vegetables such as beets and arugula can improve athletic performance by improving oxygen delivery and utilization, but what about for those who really need it—such as those with emphysema, high blood pressure, and peripheral artery disease?
Nitrates are one of the reasons I recommend eating dark green leafy vegetables every day. Beets are another good option (not just drinking the juice—see my last video Whole Beets vs. Juice for Improving Athletic Performance http://nutritionfacts.org/video/whole-beets-vs-juice-for-improving-athletic-performance).
