WHY BEETS ARE A BIG DEAL
In case you don't recognize that crazy-looking plant in the picture above, it's a Beet!
Beets have made a big splash in the endurance world in the last few years because of the nitrates found in them.
Nitrates have been shown to enhance athletic performance and increase cardiovascular health.
They do this by lowering the oxygen demand of the body during exercise, allowing for better performance.
The nitrates in beets are converted by the body into nitric oxide, a gas that plays many roles such as dilation of blood vessels, muscle contraction, and transmission of nerve signals.
Once nitric oxide has flooded your muscles, muscle contractions become more efficient, energy levels improve, and blood flow to the muscles increases allowing for more power, endurance, and stamina.
Clinical trials have shown that drinking 500 milligrams (about 2 cups) of beet juice two to three hours before exercise increases performance as much as 3%, a massive jump when considering that it stems from a simple dietary intervention.
NOT JUST FOR ATHLETES
In heart failure patients, nitric oxide levels are especially low causing weakness and fatigue.
Beet juice increases nitric oxide levels in the body allowing the body to deliver oxygenated blood to the skeletal muscles.
This translates into an improved quality of life and ability for heart failure patients to better perform routine day-to-day activities.
Whether you're a world-class athlete or just someone looking to improve your cardiovascular health beets are proven to give you a lot of bang for your buck.
THE BEST BEET-POWERED SUPPLEMENT
Rocket Red, our pre-workout/race superfoods drink has 6 grams of non-GMO beetroot juice packed with 2-3 times more betanin than other beetroot juice powders.
1 serving provides the same benefit as drinking 25 oz of fresh beet juice!
It's a perfect pre-race/work drink but many people also use it as a daily nitric oxide booster to improve cardiovascular health.
That's why, for best results, we recommend using Rocket Red daily, in addition to using it as a pre-race supplement.
Beets are just one of many powerful ingredients in Rocket Red designed to boost your performance and overall health & longevity.
