Boost Your Cardiovascular System
Physical endurance, whether it’s for a soccer game, long hike, triathlon or any other lengthy physical activity, relies heavily on the nutrients your body is receiving beforehand. Having the capacity to hike, bike, or run a little longer is largely based on how well your cardiovascular system is expending oxygen and circulating blood flow throughout your body. An individual who is having a hard time breathing or losing color while exercising is putting a lot of stress on their cardiovascular system. A strong cardiovascular system is more capable of transporting oxygen, circulating blood, and expending energy more efficiently; helping to support endurance and performance.
In order to maintain a strong cardiovascular system capable of boosting endurance and performance, your body requires the nutrients necessary to facilitate the pathways that are put to work during physical activity.
Cyclists were able to improve their times after consuming 500 mL of beetroot juice 2.5 hours before the exercise.1
Less energy was required by those who had consumed beets before exercise than those who had not consumed beets.2
Individuals who consume beet juice 2 to 3 hours before their physical activity may improve cardiovascular function and improve endurance.*
