DESCRIPTION: If nitrates can boost athletic performance and protect against heart disease, which vegetables have the most: beans, bulb vegetables (like garlic and onions), fruiting vegetables (like eggplant and squash), greens (such as arugula), mushrooms, root vegetables (such as carrots and beets), or stem vegetables (such as celery and rhubarb)? Have a question about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/videos/vegetables-rate-by-nitrate/ and I’ll try to answer it! The reference to protection from heart disease is explained in yesterday’s video (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/hearts-shouldnt-skip-a-beet/) and beet-boosting athletics in Doping With Beet Juice (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/doping-with-beet-juice/) and continuing with Priming the Proton Pump (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/priming-the-proton-pump/) and subsequent videos in this 3-week video series. Another way that greens, The Healthiest Veggies (http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/greens/), may protect heart health is explained in Boosting Heart Nerve Control (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/boosting-heart-nerve-control/). There are also hundreds of other videos on more than a thousand subjects (http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/) if you can’t wait until tomorrow for your NutritionFacts.org video-of-the-day fix.
