What is Nitric Oxide, why are beets so good for runners and what's up with BeetElite? If you've ever wondered these things, read on!
BeetElite is a pre-workout shot that helps your body make more N-O, which promotes oxygen efficiency and endurance. I’m passionate about competing my absolute best using nature’s best means- naturally occurring foods that decrease recovery time and enhance the bodies ability to perform. This is where BeetElite comes in- it's an amazing way to harness the power of my favorite superfood (the beet) in a practical and easy to use way! The packets make getting a natural boost of nitric oxide before workouts and while traveling for competitions extremely feasible to incorporate into my routine. I also feel confident that I am getting the results I need from BeetElite, since Neogenis Labs uses a patented technique backed by research.

NITRIC OXIDE – SPORT BENEFITS
BeetElite is a Pre-Workout “Shot” that helps your body make more nitric oxide (N-O). During exercise, N-O:
- Helps the body Increase Circulation
- Promotes Energy & Oxygen Efficiency to improve physical performance
- Supports Improved Rate of Recovery due to Increased Blood Flow
- Helps the body support Heart Health
- Helps the body Extend Endurance & Improve Intensity levels during exercise
With the healthful benefits of beets such as Antioxidants & Electrolytes
“The Elite Molecule”
In 1998 the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded for the discovery of the critical role that Nitric Oxide plays within the cardiovascular system. This naturally occurring molecule helps the body dilate blood vessels, increase blood flow, and improve oxygen delivery. This provides enormous benefit to athletes as they pursue the ultimate goal of Elite Performance.
N-O is a multifunctional signal transmitter between and within cells. It is produced in cells of the blood vessel lining, the heart, skeletal muscle, and other tissues. Researchers have found that both aerobic and resistance exercises increase N-O production. In studies with healthy subjects, it has been observed that the rate of N-O synthesis is positively linked to exercise performance and that the best trained subjects have the highest potential for N-O production.
The body’s ability to produce N-O can be enhanced by increasing the intake of nitrates and nitrites. Elevated levels of nitrate and nitrite result in an increase in the generation of N-O, resulting in improved exercise performance. The exercise effects of N-O are derived from its ability to increase muscle blood flow and regulate several skeletal muscle functions such as force production, mitochondrial activity, and glucose uptake.
By helping the body improve muscle blood flow there is better delivery of fuel to support muscle contraction and removal of by-products of energy production such as lactic acid that can have an adverse effect on performance. During exercise, blood glucose is a major source of fuel for the muscle. N-O helps the body improve the delivery of glucose to the muscles through better blood flow but also increases glucose uptake by the muscle cell. Increased N-O significantly reduces oxygen cost of exercise. This improved oxygen efficiency occurs due to a more efficient ATP production by the muscle mitochondria. Mitochondria are small organelles found in muscle fibers, which generate, with the help of oxygen ATP, the only fuel source that can be directly used for muscle contraction. This means that more work can be accomplished with less oxygen and calories burned (more miles per calorie, i.e. more MPC).
The Science of Nitric Oxide is the science of performance. Neogenis® Sport is committed to groundbreaking scientific research for the sake of elite athletic performance.
Studies have linked the consumption of beets to increased athletic performance, improved heart health and reduced blood pressure due to their naturally high nitrate content.
Dietary nitrates are the natural activator of nitric oxide (N-O) in the body. This signaling molecule, N-O, has these primary benefits for athletes:
- •Extends Endurance
- •Improves Energy Efficiency
- •Faster Rate of Recovery
- •More Fuel to Working Muscles
- •Helps Control Core Body Temperature During Exercise by Improved Blood Flow
At Neogenis Sport, we use superior organic, non-GMO beets. Our beets are grown from carefully selected seed of the highest quality. They are grown in soil that has been carefully stewarded to provide a nutrient-rich growing environment. Our rigorous growing standards mean that we harvest beets with the highest concentration of dietary nitrates/nitrites. Our state-of-the-art growing and patented drying process is designed to retain the nutritional value of fresh organic beetroot.
