I wonder if there is a difference between beet powder and beet root capsules? The beet powder I have is to be mixed with water. Oh, and then I wonder about canned beets. Which is better or more effective for high blood pressure.

Make some homemade beet juice. That will be the healthiest. Good quality juicer + organic beets from grocery store = organic beet root juice.

Whole, fresh beets, and if that isn't convenient whatever you can find that is closes to a whole beet. I would just eat the beets, they are cheap, easy to prepare, or, Costco sells them already cooked and peeled in a bag.

How about cooking them? Do you think I would get the same benefits from them?

That sounds good. Although I don't mind cooking them. Would that be better, do you think, than drinking the powdered beets? Also, how long do you think I can keep the cooked beets from Costco? I'm only one person. I like cooked beets. I hear the greens are good, too.

Beets in its purest form is always going to contain the most nutrients. Any processing diminishes what is available. Cooked beets are better for you than no beets. And powdered beets are probably better than no beets as well, but how were they processed? That matters too.

Costco is really good about putting expiration dates on stuff. A beet and green salad is even better.

WebMD gives a thumbs up to the beet juice, so I stand corrected: https://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/f...beetroot-juice.

Cooking may damper the effects, so I would go with raw beet salads if feasible. You may want to check out Dr. Gregger's book How Not To Die. IIRC, he mentions a study of eating 4 brazil nuts a day for blood pressure, he said the study was small, and need further studies, but you are supposed to eat nuts daily, so if you have HBP, it can't hurt.

I hope to go to Costco tomorrow. More and more studies link nutrition to health. Then today in the news they were saying how studies have found that people who miss breakfast regularly are prone to heart disease. But they were showing things like sausage, meat patties, pancakes, to eat, all the bad things. :-) Finally one of the commentators said that he doesn't know about all that gooey stuff for breakfast. The other one said she doesn't eat breakfast at all. I try to eat fruit to start my day. I suppose I should go back to oatmeal,too, but I'm afraid the bagel gets in the way. At least I try with whole wheat bagel. :-)

I don't think that nutrition has ever been NOT linked to health. But better late than never.
