BEETS/BEETROOT

The value behind beets and beetroot juice lies in their ability to increase the body’s production of nitric oxide (NO), a gas which causes blood vessels to dilate to accommodate greater blood flow.

Improved blood flow leads to greater oxygen and nutrient delivery to muscles and other surrounding tissues. This improvement likely aids in improved athletic performance and recovery—which is essential for mass building.

A study published in the “Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics” found that eating two medium-sized beets an hour and 15 minutes prior to exercise improved performance, reduced the perceived level of exertion, and decreased the amount of oxygen subjects’ bodies needed to complete a workout.
