Muscle damage sustained during an intense workout induces short-term oxidative stress, which can persist for several days until the redox balance is restored. Consumption of beetroot juice may serve useful owing to its efficacy as a potent antioxidant.

 

  • BEETROOT POWDER BOOSTS STAMINA: Beetroot powder is beneficial to fitness freaks and athletes aiming to improve sports performances. Owing to its high concentrations of nitrate, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, beetroot powder has an impact on oxygen delivery to skeletal muscles, muscle efficiency, tolerance, and endurance, thus making a positive impact on sports performance.

 

  • HELPS REDUCE RECOVERY TIME: Regular consumption of beetroot serves as a dietary nitrate supplementation to support high-intensity exercise. Not only does beetroot increase oxygen transport during exercise, but also boosts the supply of oxygen and other nutrients your hard-worked muscles need to recover after exercise.

 

  • MAY PROMOTE SKIN & HAIR HEALTH: Beetroot ranks among the ten most potent vegetables with respect to the antioxidant property. Beetroot powder owing to its nutrient-dense property, ability to boost oxygen levels in the body, helps moisturize the skin, reduces fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles. Massaging beetroot powder on the scalp helps reduce dandruff, prevents thinning of hair, and promotes hair health.

 

  • MAY HELP BOOST COGNITIVE FUNCTION: One of the major triggers for the decline in the normal functioning of cognitive function is mediated by the diminished capacity of the body to generate NO.

HOW DOES BEETROOT PRODUCE NITRIC OXIDE?

The production of nitric oxide (NO) by beetroots depends on the entero-salivary circulation of nitrate without involving NOS (nitric oxide synthase) activity. Once in the body, the nitrate (NO3) in beets is reduced to nitrite (NO2) by anaerobic bacteria in the oral cavity by the action of the nitrate reductase enzyme. Nitrite is then converted to nitric oxide (NO) by stomach acid. Our saliva plays a big role in the conversion of nitrate to nitrite, so it is advised for you to avoid brushing your teeth or chewing gum, or using mouthwash around supplementation with beetroot powder (to avoid interference with the conversion process).


DOES BEETROOT POWDER BOOST STAMINA?

Yes. Beetroot powder owing to its rich concentration of nitrates, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity has an impact on muscle efficiency and stamina. Nitrates in beetroot powder get converted into nitric oxide which helps lower blood pressure by relaxing your blood vessels and as a result, increases stamina by promoting better circulation of oxygen and blood throughout the body. Beetroot powder is particularly beneficial to athletes, fitness freaks, those aiming to improve athletic performance, people with hypertension and people leading busy lifestyles.

DOES BEETROOT POWDER HELP REDUCE EXERCISE RECOVERY TIME?

Yes. The improved nutrient and oxygen uptake after exercise, along with the rich antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of beets play a role in reducing muscle soreness after intense training. The boosted blood flow to the muscles facilitates mitochondrial aerobic energy generation. When the hard-worked muscles receive the required nutrients they need to repair, it helps in faster muscle recovery from post-workout.

 

 IS USING BEETROOT POWDER A MORE CONVENIENT OPTION THAN BEETS?

Yes, using beetroot powder is a much more convenient and versatile option to use than whole beets. 1tsp beetroot powder equals one whole beet.

DOES BEETROOT POWDER HELP IMPROVE MUSCULAR ENDURANCE? 

Yes, during aerobic exercise like cycling, running, swimming, cardio workouts, your muscles require substantial oxygen to function properly. The better oxygen availability to working muscles will allow you to push yourself harder without fatiguing. Dietary nitrate supplementation is great at producing ergogenic effects due to the improvement of mitochondrial oxygen efficiency through a reduction in oxygen cost of exercise. Vasodilation causes oxygen and nutrients to swiftly reach the muscles, thus contributing to enhanced endurance. 

 

DOES BEETROOT POWDER BOOST CIRCULATION?

Yes, nitrates are the key components in beetroots that contribute to improving nitric oxide levels. The vasodilation effect promoted by nitric oxide in beets has an effect on blood vessel dilation. By dilating blood vessels, beets contribute to improving your blood pressure, placing less strain on your heart to pump blood to power a strenuous workout. The vasodilation effect help deliver more oxygen, nutrients, and clear waste products from your hard-working muscles, allowing you to work out longer and harder.

DOES BEETROOT POWDER DELAY TIME TO EXHAUSTION OR FATIGUE?

Consuming beetroot powder can increase time to exhaustion by improving cardiovascular performance and contributing to maximum oxygen uptake by muscles. Nitric oxide’s ability to increase blood flow increases the amount of oxygen and nutrients delivered to muscles. Since oxygen is the powering factor of aerobic exercise, better oxygen delivery to your muscles means better muscle performance and delayed exhaustion.

 

IS BEETROOT POWDER SUITABLE FOR NON-ATHLETES? 

Definitely yes, one need not be a professional athlete to take advantage of the ergogenic benefits of beetroot powder. Beetroot powder is sustainable, versatile, convenient, and an inexpensive source of nutrients.

Muscle damage sustained during intense exercise induces short-term oxidative stress which can last for several days, consumption of beetroot juice/powder owes beneficial in restoring the redox balance. Its anti-inflammatory activity has an impact on oxygen delivery to skeletal muscles, the nitrates appear to reduce the VO2 max without affecting exercise performance. Consumption of beetroot powder/juice helps improve your muscle power output, helps you run faster and longer with less perceived exertion. 

 

DOES BEETROOT POWDER INTERACT WITH MEDICATION?

There is limited evidence in regards to the adverse effects and tolerance issues of beetroot juice. The available research studies suggest that the beneficial properties of beetroot can be profoundly affected by medications imposing undesirable interaction with metabolism. Beeturia or excretion of pink urine following beetroot consumption may occur due to the presence of unmetabolized betalain pigments in the urine. Studies are required to be conducted on beetroot interaction with creatine, caffeine, beta alanine and to evaluate its long-term efficacy and safety.
