High nitrate content is the main key to beetroot’s efficacy in which nitrates are reduced to nitric oxide which then contributes to improving athletic performance by enhancing blood flow, gas exchange, and mitochondrial efficiency and biogenesis. Also, improving the oxidative exercise performance by 3-6%, and that this amount is up to 10x more than is sufficient to make a difference in a competitive setting. This oxidative exercise refers to the oxidative energy system which is the major energy system utilized for exercise bouts lasting longer than 1-2 minutes. In short, ALL endurance activities.
The authors of this review paper found over 700 studies after a keyword search. Nine applicable studies were found excluding the studies of high-intensity exercise and some form of nitrate supplementation. Seven out of 9 found positive results for high-intensity exercise performance, and the rest found improvements about 19-20%!
So, if you’re already supplementing with beetroot then you are on the right path in progressing towards your maximum potential! Boost your training and fly past your competition with Beetroot Pro®!
As this study tells us that you will also benefit from supplementing beetroot on your short runs, sprints, and even weight training sessions. In short, beets could enhance ALL modes of exercise!

Hi Suzette, In our case, Beetroot Pro is a powder extract without any beet sugar or fiber. We only offer what is unique about beets, the red-pigmented betalains. We have found granules and crystals also include fibers and sugars, which for some, can cause stomach issues.
