Benefits Of Beetroot Powder
Thing is, you’d have to eat a lot of beets (like somewhere between two and eight) to produce enough nitric oxide to reap real blood flow benefits. That’s where beetroot powder, which is made from dehydrated beets and thus contains higher levels of nitrates, comes in. (Concentrated beetroot juice also offers the same advantage.) Here are five health and fitness perks of the ruby red powder.
1. Strengthens Your Heart Health
When it comes to heart health, beets’ biggest benefit is improved blood pressure. “Dietary nitrates from beets dilate blood vessels, allowing for increased blood flow and therefore putting less stress on the heart to pump oxygen and nutrients throughout the body,” says Kelly Jones M.S., R.D., C.S.S.D., nutrition consultant to professional athletes, sports organizations, and fitness clubs.
Keep in mind, though, that eating beets once or twice won’t permanently lower blood pressure; you’ve got to consume beets’ nitrates regularly—and incorporating beetroot powder into your routine is an easy way to do so.
2. Increases Exercise Endurance
While they help keep your heart from working too hard, beets’ nitrates can also help your muscles work harder.
One 2017 study published in the journal Nutrients, for example, found that beet supplementation may improve time-to-exhaustion during exercise. Translation: It may help you work out for longer.
According to Asche, this benefit may stem from nitric oxide’s ability to increase blood flow, which then increases the amount of oxygen delivered to your muscles. Since oxygen is a crucial component in powering forms of ‘aerobic’ or ‘cardiovascular’ exercise—like long runs or bike rides—more oxygen means better performance.
3. Power Through High-Intensity Workouts
Not only do beets’ nitrates help enhance cardio exercise, but they also boost higher-intensity training—like sprints or heavy lifting—that rely on chemicals other than oxygen. Case in point: One 2018 Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition study found that beetroot reduced fatigue during high-intensity exercise.
Though research has yet to uncover exactly how beets have this effect, Jones suggests it may relate to beets’ ability to reduce the breakdown of creatine phosphate—a crucial chemical for this type of exercise—during training.
4. Reduces Recovery Time
Along with supporting exercise, the nitric oxide produced by beets’ nitrates can also help speed up recovery. Not only does boosted blood flow mean increased oxygen transport during exercise, but also increased transport of oxygen and other nutrients muscles need to recover after exercise. As a result, your hard-worked tissues get the materials they need to repair.
Research backs this up: One study published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology, for example, found that supplementing with beets after intense exercise modulated soreness in active guys.
5. Boosts Brain Health
Outside of the gym, beetroot powder may also provide cognitive health benefits, especially for older adults.
According to one 2011 study published in the journal Nitric Oxide, nitrates may help improve delivery of blood to areas of the brain associated with executive function. (This includes memory, focus, and emotion regulation.)
The theory is that by dilating blood vessels and improving blood flow, nitric oxide also improves oxygen and nutrient delivery to the brain, says Jones.
This effect may also benefits the brains of younger populations, but research has more investigating to do.

Pterostilbene CapsulesAdd to cart
Pterostilbene is a methylated stilbene molecule with structural similarity to resveratrol, the only difference being two methoxy groups on the pterostilbene molecule that replace hydroxy groups on the resveratrol molecule. While most of the actions of the two are comparable, pterostilbene appears to be much more well absorbed following oral ingestion and may be a more potent antioxidant and anticancer molecule.
Finasteride Topical Solution Roll-OnAdd to cart
DMSO is used topically to decrease pain and speed the healing of wounds, burns, and muscle and skeletal injuries. DMSO is also used topically to treat painful conditions such as headache, inflammation, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and severe facial pain called tic douloureux. It is used topically for eye conditions including cataracts, glaucoma, and problems with the retina; for foot conditions including bunions, calluses, and fungus on toenails; and for skin conditions including keloid scars and scleroderma. It is sometimes used topically to treat skin and tissue damage caused by chemotherapy when it leaks from the IV that is used to deliver it. DMSO is used either alone or in combination with a drug called idoxuridine to treat pain associated with shingles..
