Beet It! All Natural Sports Drink

Beetroot juice—literally beets that are juiced—may give you an extra edge during workouts and races. A slew of new research finds that consuming the all-natural sports drink boosts athletic performance.

Beets are a rich source of nitrates, which the body converts to nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a potent vasodilator, which means it widens blood vessels. As a result, blood and muscle-powering oxygen can flood into your muscles, giving you a greater edge for your workout. Consuming nature’s sports drink resulted in a 38 percent greater blood flow to skeletal muscles during exercise, especially fast-twitch muscles that allow you to perform quick, explosive movements and that tend to fatigue more rapidly. In other words, beets help you push harder, longer.
