Can’t Beet This!
You’ve probably read about it by now; beets are hot! While I may not go so far as to say they’re the new kale (solely because of my love of the leafy green), they’re something worth looking into, to say the least.
Beets, rich in Nitrates (NO3), provide a concentrated source of dietary nitrate, which becomes Nitric Oxide in the body, acting as a vasodilator.
Health benefits include:
- a boost in stamina, helping you exercise longer
- improved blood flow and lower blood pressure
- greater power output and less fatigue.
So what’s it to you?
You can see improvements in training and performance, creating a scenario whereby you increase muscle strength, muscle growth and muscle endurance.
And while whipping up a smoothie of your own (check out my recipe), is the easiest way you to, there’s also another thing worth trying:
AMRAP’s newest product, NoB, offers a good replacement when you’re traveling and didn’t happen to pack your juicer in your overnight bag!
I first tried it about a month ago, solely because I feel their bars have always been one of the few out there which claim to be Paleo, that really are.
With a clean ingredient panel, I needed no further convincing:
INGREDIENTS: Non-GMO Beet Juice Concentrate, Electrolyte Blend (Potassium Citrate, Sea Salt, Magnesium Oxide), Stevia, Natural Flavor.
It tasted great, mixed easily and proved to be a nice fill-in product for when I’m away from my kitchen and beloved Vitamin.
