Beets are becoming popular in the sports nutrition world because they are a natural source of dietary nitrates (not to be confused with the preservative, nitrite). Dietary nitrates have been shown to boost athletic performance by converting to nitric oxide in the body. This nitric oxide is able to improve the body’s ability to deliver oxygen to working muscles, which allows you to work at a higher intensity for a longer period of time before fatiguing. Basically, current research suggests beets can help you go faster for longer with more efficiency.
Beet’Ums are unique because the way they process the beets allows for maximum nutrient retention and results in an extremely potent form of nitric oxide. They also contain nutrients that may help with absorption of nitric oxide, resulting in a greater effect. Consuming beet-based nutrients in the form of a chew naturally extends their time in the mouth, which can increase the nitric oxide capacity of beets by as much as 10 times! Made with only pure and natural ingredients, these are a performance enhancing real food product you won’t regret trying!

We recommend taking one chew per day 30-60 minutes prior to exercise. The longer you use this product the greater effect it will have, so beginning supplementation with nitric oxide several weeks before competition will allow you to get the best results. Keep in mind these chews are low in carbohydrates, so are not recommended as an energy source DURING training or competition. Pro tip: combine these with a powdered form of Beetroot juice, such as BeetElite, to maximize the training benefits of nitric oxide supplementation.
