Studies have linked the consumption of beets to increased athletic performance, heart health and healthy blood pressure due to their high nitrate content.
This is because dietary nitrates are an activator of Nitric Oxide (N-O) in the body. This signaling molecule, N-O, is becoming increasingly recognized by both the medical and fitness communities for its numerous and significant roles in the body.
Among the primary benefits of N-O for athletes:
- Exercise Endurance
- Energy Efficiency
- Oxygen Efficiency
- Fuel Delivery to Working Muscles
On top of that, beets are also a great source of Antioxidants and Electrolytes.
Products we recommend to promote heart health and a healthy blood pressure are: BeetElite & Neo40
