A recent study by the University of Exeter in England has come up with a new claim for the health benefits of beetroot. Formerly a rather boring vegetable, beetroot does not immediately spring to mind when discussing health and nutrition, but in the last two years, nutritional researchers have discovered that the humble beetroot is up there with the other super foods that are so good for us.
The researchers at Exeter have found that drinking beetroot juice can help fitness enthusiasts work out for up to 16% longer than those who stick to fruit juices or glucose drinks. The presence of nitrate in beetroot juice leads to a reduction in oxygen uptake, therefore making exercise less tiring.
Beetroot juice has been attributed with helping to lower blood pressure and a daily glass of beetroot juice can aid hypertension and many cardiovascular diseases, but this is the first time that it has been linked with boosting energy levels. The blood pressure link was found in a study by the London School of Medicine and the Peninsular School.
But if recollections of childhood encounters with acidic pickled beet are clouding your judgement, it may be time for a rethink on the subject. There is now a better way to add beetroot nutrients to your daily diet and get all the benefits: natural supplements.

are so popular. These beet root pills leverage all the power of the beet root, a superfood, for you to experience a new level of total body wellness.
And don’t be alarmed if you notice that your urine has turned bright pink. This is the effect of the betacyanin it contains, which gives the beetroot it’s distinctive colour. It has anti-cancer properties, particularly cancers of the stomach and colon, so don’t let this unfortunate side effect put you off. It is quite harmless.
