Episode #103: Beetroot Juice - New Sports Supplement Discovery Or Another Fallacy?
Show Notes

In this episode, I deep dive into the latest sports supplement that has been trending in popularity - beetroot juice/beetroot extract. There has been a lot of hype about beetroot juice in recent times with many proposing it as the next great supplement in the sports performance space. 

Athletes are always looking at the next thing to take their performance to the next level. That is why supplements are so popular as they are marketed as performance enhancers.

However, many supplements are simply not as good as they seem OR they simply do not work and are B.S. Then there is a small group of supplements that truly help or have promise.

That is why I wanted to chat about beet juice as it’s the latest supplement that has been touted as beneficial for the athlete. So is this true or untrue? Is beet juice underrated or overrated?

In today’s podcast, I will cover:

  • What is beetroot juice? (and why is it suggested as the next hot supplement)
  • The science behind beet juice and performance (what is the justification?) 
  • Should you consider taking beet juice as an athlete?
  • Beet juice dosing explained 

Listen to the full episode to learn the truth and get a deeper understanding of beetroot juice/extract.

Hope you enjoy!
