Beet Celery Ginger Apple Juice To Lower Blood Pressure


Beet juice and celery juice have been used for decades to lower hypertension the natural way. I myself am living proof of this.   Last year I was diagnosed with hypertension and was put on lisinopril. I dislike taking drugs and try to avoid them as much as I can, so I persuaded the doctor to let me try natural ways & diet therapy  to lower my blood pressure. I was given a month and during that time apart from cutting salty foods out of my diet I drank fresh celery juice almost every day and my blood pressure was fine.  Celery apple ginger juice is now a regular part of my routine. I sometimes add beets to it, but I avoid it for the most part since I am also borderline diabetic (strong family history). I am not suggesting that you throw away your pills … oh no!! But just try this therapy and then over time you may find the need to take pills for hypertension may become less or  like in my case be under good control the natural way. Since this juice combo is all natural, no harm really in drinking it  for general health.  The real hypertension lowering ingredients are beets & celery, but the apple adds sweetness to it and makes it refreshing and tasty.  Feel free to omit the apple or the beets  if you have diabetes. Just celery juice will work too! Even if you don’t have hypertension this juice is loaded with antioxidants and raw enzymes that will rejuvenate and recharge your system. It ‘s a blood purifying juice that cleanses the system. 



Science behind why this may work!

Beets are the ultimate blood purifier. They increases RBC (increases production of glutathione [detoxifying agent]) and lowers Blood pressure. They are more potent eaten raw or in fresh juice form. Celery contains high levels of potassium and active compounds called phthalides, which have been found to lower blood pressure and promote a healthy circulatory system.  Celery should be eaten raw or in juice form to get the maximum benefits. Celery has the highest level of pesticide according to the EPA list, so buying organic celery when you juice is better. If you can’t buy organic, use a good veggie wash which will remove most of the pesticide. You can try this homemade recipe for a fruit/ veggie wash! Put these two together and you have a potent juice that lowers blood pressure!

  1. Hey Sunithi,

    Really useful tips, as in India lot of people are dealing with high blood pressure issue. Thanks to God, nobody in my family has this issue. But certainly I’ll suggest this natural way to all effected people. Keep up the good work.

  2. My husband used to juice a lot, but he hasn’t done it in awhile. He takes lisinopril for his high blood pressure. I am going to show him this recipe and see what he thinks. Thanks!

    • That’s the same drug I was prescribed. Fortunately mine came under control with the juice and some lifestyle changes and I don’t take it anymore. Hope you can continue the juicing. Always good for so many things !! Thanks for reading !

  3. I’ve been intending to do more juicing. I’m definitely going to try this. I’ve also heard beet juice good for the brain…Do you peel the ginger before juicing?

    • Beets have high levels of Glutathione, a superior antioxidant which detoxifies …. prolly why it would be great for the brain. I just restarted juicing regularly & apart from losing wt, I feel very energetic and good. So I highly recommend it ! I just wash ginger well, but I don’t peel it ! Thanks for sharing the post 🙂 ! Appreciate it !

      • Eating balance diet is great recipe for controlling physical and mental diseases. So try to eat healthy foods always. Raw veggies and fresh fruits are great for health.

  4. ovvv, mmmm. beautiful 🙂

  5. I think this would be the best drink for the blood pressure patient would recommend your article with appropriate person. So they could take the benefit of your article for staying healthy.

  6. Sue, you never fail to entice your readers with your lovely, mouth-watering recipes. I come from a family that’s got high blood pressure as one of our problems, and we’re always popping maintenance meds to keep the elevated blood pressure at bay.Glad you used ginger instead of garlic, because I really hate it. Thank you!

  7. Celery lends a tangy, refreshing flavor to the drink, and I was really smitten with it because it’s got apple and ginger as some of its ingredients. These two cover the sweet and the slightly spicy flavor of the smoothie. I never thought beet is another essential ingredient that can make any fruit smoothie even more delicious and nutritious.

  8. At first looking this juice, I thought it’s guava juice, but it isn’t 😀
    But, I like the combination of beet and ginger, it really good for health…

  9. I’m more of a mango smoothie junkie but I’ll definitely try your recipe Sue. Ginger lends a spicy nip to the drink and I think it will be a refreshing and delicious alternative to carbonated drinks and sugar-packed juice cartons.

  10. Ginger? Sounds nasty. But I will surely try your recipe if it definitely lowers blood pressure. Does the heavenly concoction have something to say about lowering bad cholesterol?

  11. This is a topic that’s near to my heart… Thank you! Exactly where are your contact details though?

  12. Aw, this was a really good post. Taking the time and actual effort
    to produce a great article… but what can I say…
    I put things off a whole lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

  13. Very good write-up. I certainly appreciate this website.
    Stick with it!

  14. Great blog you’ve got here.. It’s hard to find excellent writing like yours
    nowadays. I really appreciate people like you!
    Take care!!

  15. Spot on with this write-up, I honestly believe this web site needs a great deal more attention.
    I’ll probably be back again to see more, thanks for the info!

  16. Superb post but I was wondering if you could write
    a litte more on this subject? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further.

  17. Where’s the fluid? I just put the ingredients in my blender (much better for you than a juicer, apparently) and not much happening! I’m adding a cup of fluid otherwise it won’t work!


    1 cup ‘Oatly’ added and all smoothyish. It’s makes about 2.5 tall straight glasses so if you want to drink it 3 times a day – fine. Otherwise, a glass and a half for a couple, once a day. Not actually smooth – lumpyish but tasty. If you have a sweet tooth though, you’ll probably want to add some honey or an equivalent.

    • A blender wont work for more solid veg like beets, you need to extract the juice first, depending on the veg you can some times get away with chopping them putting some of the softest pith in a blender while juicing the generous trimmings to provide more liquid or better us a higher powered smoothy maker like the nutri Pro 1000, which may reduce the need for juicing some of the veg…

  18. Soup is also good for lowering your blood pressure they say I am going to be trying but my diet consist of a vegetable diet because of my health problems but I do want to try this soon and the drinks blood pressures been good but it would be nice to get off of pill I was able to get off of my tricor but still on 1 cholester. I do hope this works for everyone blood pressure I will be trying it glad I found this site thanks god bless everyone!!!!

  20. Linda Matthews says:

    I made my drink today it’s really good, it’s spicy do I have to much ginger in it, and how often do I make it.

  21. What about juicing beets and ginger and a apple is that good for high blood pressure if i dont have no celery.


  1. […] Put celery, apple and beet in a juicer. Stir the resulting […]
