Hi – I wanted to respond to your Beet question on Twitter but didn’t want to self promote 🙂 Its the dietary nitrates naturally found in Beets that serve as the benefit by converting to Nitric Oxide when you drink. Beets in general are super healthy with many other health benefits. The key to stamina and endurance benefits though is high nitrate beets. Studies show that you need to drink 500ml-1L of beet juice to receive the benefit. Check out our Beet It Shot – new to Canada. We’ve concentrated the benefit of 500ml-1L of beet juice into a 70ml shot. Its convenient and guarantees the dietary nitrate level.
Wanted to comment and introduce myself as well. Hope to connect again soon.
Thanks for the info! This is very interesting indeed. Over the last few years I’ve become a big fan of roasted beets (as a side dish, in a salad). As a cyclist, I train hard, but have less motivation and discipline on the nutrition side. I just picked an enormous amount of beets from the garden and was worried the sugars would negate health benefits, in such large quantity. Which is why I asked the question. I had no idea about the performance benefit as well.
Thanks again for saying hello!
Fine, I’ll come get you, but you’d better make it worth my while. Some roasted beets just might do the trick.
