  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Sickle Cell Disease
  • Hemoglobin
Current Research
  • Complications from blood transfusions (such as infection, organ failure and death) are likely due to red blood cell breakdown during storage, suggesting that blood for transfusions may need to be stored differently.
  • Drinking beet juice (which contains nitrate that is converted to nitrite by oral bacteria) can increase blood flow to the brain in older adults – a finding that could hold great potential for combating the progression of dementia. Generally, dietary nitrate is being studied for application in many diseases.
