Beet Up

New to the beets craze? There’s a reason it has taken the fitness world by storm as the new ‘super food’ and now you can see what all the fuss is about.

Packed full of nitrates, beets have been shown to reduce the amount of oxygen needed during exercise, meaning you can work out longer and harder.

Beet Up lets you get to the good stuff quicker, housing around the same amount of nitrate (590mg) in one dose as a 600ml bottle of beetroot juice. Plus, as it’s a powder, it’s light and easy to add to your drink on the go.

More Information

While beets have a long list of benefits to the body including potassium, vitamin C, fibre and several powerful antioxidants, it’s the secret ingredient of their high nitrate level that makes it an extremely popular choice for athletes.

So what exactly are nitrates and why are they so beneficial? Research has shown that they improve muscle oxygenation, giving you a higher tolerance during long-term endurance exercise.

A recent study found a 15% to 25% improvement in time-to-exhaustion in cycling and treadmill running from athletes who had used beets as a nitrate source.  It was also found to improve repeated sprint performance along with reaction time.

Athletes aside, beets have a string of benefits for the everyday person. These include:

  • Heart health and lowering blood pressure
  • Improved blood flow and oxygenation to parts of the brain that are lacking, assisting in dementia.
  • Rich in the antioxidant Alpha-Lipoic Acid which has been shown to lower glucose levels and increase insulin sensitivity.
  • A rich source of Choline which helps reduce chronic inflammation, sleep and muscle movement.

Directions For Use

Mix two scoops of Beet Up into 250ml of water and consume 2.5-3 hours before exercise. Research has shown that it takes approximately 3 hours for blood nitrate levels to peak following ingestion in the form of beetroot. Beet Up can be taken both as a one-off before exercise to boost performance as well as continuously over 6-7 days. Most individuals report best effects with 3-4 days of continued use.
