A shot of concentrated beetroot juice with 400mg of dietary nitrates per serving. Providing maximum nitrate intake in the smallest volume of liquid, it is preferred by elite athletes as a quick and easy-to-take supplement. Derived from 6-8 beets, it is completely natural, the ampoule of beetroot is combined with lemon juice which reduces its taste making it more palatable.
Over the past decade, researchers at over 300 universities around the world have independently tested Beet It Sport products and published over 200 peer-reviewed research papers. In 2018, the International Olympic Committee reviewed a large body of research and concluded that dietary nitrate supplementation has been associated with up to: 1. 25% increase in exercise time to exhaustion (delayed fatigue) 2. 5% improvement in sprint performance 3. 3% increase in exercise time trial performance. Beetroot (beta vulgaris) or beetroot juice is an excellent source of antioxidants and other micronutrients.
It contains potassium, betaine, sodium, magnesium, vitamin C and nitrates, while it has 29kcal/100g. The high content of beetroot in nitrates (>250mg/100g. of fresh food) is what makes it an ergogenic aid. The action of beetroot is based on the conversion of nitrate ions into nitric acid, a known vasodilator that increases blood flow throughout the body. In this way the muscles are more quickly supplied with oxygen, glucose and other nutrients to perform better.
