1. Your athletic performance will improve
OK, so, while you may not be scaling buildings, picking up cars or flying your body over major cities, if you consume beetroot on the daily, research has found that you will have improved athletic performance.
In fact, a study was published in “Nutrients — Open Access Journal of Human Nutrition” where researchers sought to find the effects of beetroot juice supplementation in the cardio endurance in athletes. In the study, beetroot juice was used as a daily supplement, and the results found that chronic supplementation with beetroot juice may improve cardio performance at the anaerobic threshold and VO2max intensities.
It was further noted that the juice should be taken within 90 min before athletic effort to ensure that the juice works at its peak level which happens within 2–3 h after ingestion.
