A study has been published in the American Journal of Physiology- Heart and Circulatory Physiology which states the consequences of nitrate supplementation on sympathetic nerve movement. As per this new study the dietary nitrate may lessen over stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system that happen with heart disease. This dietary nitrate is a compound that widens blood vessels to reduce blood pressure.
The researchers of this study precisely studied beetroot juice, a source of dietary nitrate to investigate it’s utilization as a future targeted treatment choice for people with cardiovascular diseases.
Elevated heart rate, blood pressure and blood vessel constriction consist of creation of the sympathetic nervous system. This creation of the sympathetic nervous system is caused by raised sympathetic nerve movement.
The sympathetic verve movement also boosts with different forms of cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure and heart failure.
The researcher stated that “acute nitrate supplementation using beetroot juice can decrease muscle sympathetic outflow at rest and during exercise”.
