Beet those pesky lapses in memory:
Do you ever find yourself sitting through half the late movie-you know, what’s-it-called, starring what’s-his-face—before remembering you’ve already seen it? Have you forgotten where you left your coffee mug (next to your keys, wherever they are) again?
Maybe you need a shot of beet juice. New research indicates that the nitrates in beet juice (which convert to nitrites and nitric oxide in the body) open up oxygen-rich blood vessels.
