Dietary nitrate is known to lower blood pressure. Beetroot is a rich source of nitrate and could therefore be an important dietary component in the management of hypertension and cardiovascular disease, however consumption is relatively low. We evaluated the effects of beetroot enriched bread ingestion on acute microvascular reactivity, arterial stiffness and blood pressure response in healthy men.
