2 cups of Raw Beet juice works wonders for lowering blood pressure within an half hour to an hour. However, it's kinda hard to drink it everyday. It stays in your systems for 24 hours. However, I take Mukta Vati and occassionaly drink beet juice in between. Mukta Vati will definately keep your blood pressure down. I know because I take mukta vati. I tell you, this stuff works. I came off three medications!! You have to stick with it. Just be sure to crush it in your mouth with a glass of water to make sure it goes into your system. It takes about two weeks to work! and its all natural. You can find it on the internet. If anyone have any questions about it, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It's real!
