Pure High Nitrate Beet Powder is made with real beetroot, and provides high amounts of naturally occurring nitrates which scientific studies* have shown may assist with improving power and endurance in endurance athletes. Beetroot has high amounts of naturally occurring inorganic Nitrates.
Pure High Nitrate Beet Powder is made with real beetroot, and provides high amounts of naturally occurring nitrates which scientific studies* have shown may assist with improving power and endurance in endurance athletes. Beetroot has high amounts of naturally occurring inorganic Nitrates. Nitrates have a vasodilating effect in the body, decreasing blood pressure whilst also reducing the amount of oxygen needed during exercise which may enhance athletic performance. Dietary nitrate supplementation may also improve exercise performance by increasing blood flow to the exercising muscles and improving the match between blood flow and oxygen uptake. Each 40gram serving of Pure Beet Powder provides 500mg of Nitrate.
Pure Beet Powder is suitable for both men and women however shouldn’t be used by anyone using blood pressure medication or other vasodilators.
* A 2011 study found that men who pre-race consumed 500ml of beetroot juice (40g Pure Beet Powder equivalent) improved simulated 4 km and 16.1 km cycling time-trial performance by 2.8 per cent (11 seconds) and 2.7 per cent (45 seconds), respectively, as compared to when they completed the rides after drinking a placebo.
• Excellent taste.
• When taken in the days prior to an event it may assist with overall performance.
• Easy to consume just mix with water, juice or smoothies.
HOW TO USE BEETROOT POWDER
Simply mix 40grams or 3 Tbsp Pure Beet Powder with 250ml 500ml plain water. Consume 3 4 hours prior to an event (to allow the nitrates to be processed in your body) and/or consume for 2 5 days prior to your planned event.
Beetroot juice appears to lower the oxygen cost of exercise by reducing the total ATP cost of muscle force production the muscles use less ATP to produce the same amount of work. Beetroot juice also decreases the breakdown of phosphocreatine (the limited reserve of high-energy phosphate that resynthesizes ATP), thus lessening muscle metabolic disruption. These changes may be due to an increased efficiency of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation or increased efficiency of calcium transport by the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca-ATPases.
