Better Cognitive Performance
It is a well-known fact that many ageing people may be affected by decline of their cognitive abilities. The good news is that we can control our mental activity, and the quality and diversity of our diets can make a great contribution to management of our mental health. Dietary nitrates are considered by many researches as strong agents that improve our cognitive performance. They dilate our blood vessels, thus accelerating our blood flows that pump more oxygen into our brains.
Scientific research revealed that human frontal lobe, that takes charge of our memory and decision making, is affected most. Many scientists promise to prove us soon that beetroot can reduce our risks to develop dementia. What is already proved is that systematic eating of beets may improve our reaction time.
