At Blonyx we are committed to helping you achieve your athletic ambition. That's why we are so excited to launch Beet-It Sport. It’s a new product for Blonyx but since it was released in the UK, it’s been the subject of over 300 research studies, which has resulted in it being adopted by teams in the NHL, NFL, NBA, MLS and English premier league, as well as by a number of olympic athletes.
Here are five main benefits of beet juice:
- Nitric Oxide (NO) Boost - improves endurances and peak performance
- Enhanced Exercise Efficiency - delays the onset of fatigue by boosting ATP production
- Increased Endurance - thanks to improved oxygen delivery to the muscle
- Improved High-Intensity Performance - beet juice improves blood flow
- Reduced Oxygen Cost - nitrates reduce the oxygen cost of exercise by 5%
Nitric Oxide (NO) BoostBeets are packed with dietary nitrates that your body converts into nitric oxide. Nitric oxide plays a crucial role in vasodilation, the widening and relaxation of blood vessels, which leads to improved blood flow and oxygen delivery to your muscles. The result? Enhanced endurance and peak exercise performance. (Lansley et al., 2011; Hoon et al., 2013)
Enhanced Exercise EfficiencyThe nitrates found in beet juice have been proven to supercharge your energy production during physical activity. By boosting ATP production efficiency—the primary energy source for your muscles—beet juice consumption delays the onset of fatigue and elevates your overall exercise performance. Prepare to go the extra mile and conquer new challenges! (Bailey et al., 2009; Wylie et al., 2013)
Increased EnduranceEndurance athletes, including runners and cyclists, have experienced performance benefits from beet juice supplementation. The improved oxygen delivery to working muscles contributes to delayed fatigue and improved time to exhaustion, especially during prolonged endurance activities. (Cermak et al., 2012)
Improved High-Intensity PerformanceBeet juice has also demonstrated its potential to enhance high-intensity exercise performance. The improved blood flow and oxygen supply to muscles support intense muscle contractions, enabling athletes to perform better during activities such as sprints or interval training. Additionally, beet juice aids in post-exercise recovery by facilitating the removal of metabolic byproducts. Stay in the game, recover faster, and come back stronger. (Christensen et al., 2013)
Reduced Oxygen Cost
Research suggests that beet juice supplementation can reduce the oxygen cost of exercise. Athletes may require less oxygen to sustain performance at a given intensity, which can be particularly advantageous during activities demanding high oxygen consumption. This reduction in oxygen cost can potentially enhance endurance and allow athletes to perform at higher intensities for longer durations. Get ready to redefine your limits. (Ferguson et al., 2013)
To optimize the use of beet juice for performance enhancement, consulting with a sports nutritionist or healthcare professional is recommended. They can provide personalized guidance tailored to your specific needs and goals.
