Why Beets Make You a Better Athlete

Drinking beet juice is a proven way to boost endurance, helping increase the size of blood vessels to bring more oxygen t your muscles. Beet juice also helps athletes react faster and make smarter decisions, even at the end of tough workouts when mental acuity flags. Athletes who take shots of beet juice daily are able to sprint more powerfully, and think more clearly and quickly. The high nitrate content of the juice helps supply more oxygen to the brain. The easiest way to get these effects is by drinking beet juice from concentrate (at smoothies bars or in bottled juices).
