Do you want to exercise more? Well, start consuming more beet-root. It helps you exercise 16% more than normal. Why?
The University of Exeter led-study has for the first time shown how the nitrate contained in beetroot juice leads to a reduction in oxygen uptake, making exercise less tiring. The study reveals that drinking beetroot juice reduces oxygen uptake to an extent that cannot be achieved by any other known means, including training.
So, forget the protein-shakes.. go for a beet-root juice before your exercise.
