Beetroot juice makes muscles more fuel-efficient

Beetroot is great at creating red blood cells and helps to maximise the oxygen carried to the cells. So during exercise it increases the efficiency of oxygen take up, which results in less fatique and higher endurance. The magnesium in beetroot is a muscle relaxer and helps to ease tension in the body, again enhancing the effect of exercise.

Maximising oxygen use to boost stamina

The high iron content in the juice make it very good for those who suffer from anemia or low heomoglobin. Furthermore beetroot juice is very good for the digestive track and the liver function, it essentially stimulates the nerves in the intestines. By doing so it increases the metabolic rate.

Betroot juice is that wonderful rich dark colour vegetable and a very active anti-oxidant. Anything that is high in anti-oxidants is also anti ageing, so naturally beetroot juice is very good for the skin.

Beetroot juice also has a very quick impact on lowering blood pressure, within 1 hour of consumption. Therefore should be consumed regularly by people with cardio vascular related problems such as heart attacks or stoke patients.

The Evidence

Researchers have found that beetroot juice doubles the amount of nitrate in blood which in turn reduces the rate at which muscles use their main source of energy. The increased nitrate oxide also affects a number of other body functions including blood flow, hormones levels and cell signalling. Research was carried out by theUniversityofExeter, school of sports and health sciences.
