Sport Shots & Bars

No other brand delivers the natural nitrate you need to boost sports performance

As study after study has shown, beet-based supplements must contain a minimum of 400mg of dietary nitrate to deliver proven, consistent improvements in sport performance and high blood pressure management.

Beet It Sport Shots are the only 100% natural product that delivers 400mg of nitrates. Shot after Shot. Time after time. It’s why our shots have become the de facto standard among researchers, used in over 200 studies worldwide.

The power of beet concentrate.

Dietary nitrate occurs naturally in beets and vegetables. The only problem is that the amount of nitrate is wildly unpredictable, meaning you have to eat or drink unreasonably large amounts to get the recommended 400mg of nitrate. Beet It Shots are made from concentrated beet juice, which means we can control for the correct amount of nitrate by controlling the concentration. It’s the reason Beet It Shots are the easiest, tastiest, most convenient way to consume the 400mg of nitrate you need to achieve improvements in sports performance and cardiovascular health. The chart below gives you a sense of just how much of each vegetable you’d have to consume to meet the 400mg of nitrate found in every Beet It Sport Shot. (Keeping in mind, of course, that natural nitrate concentrations will fluctuate between the same quantity of each vegetable.)

How much of these nitrate-rich foods would you need to get the 400mg of nitrate found in each Beet It Sport Shot and Bar?
  • Cooked Beets = .9 lbs, or about 2.5 cups = 4 servings
  • Uncooked Beets = .66 lbs, or about 2 cups = 3 servings
  • Swiss Chard (Uncooked) = .55 lbs, or about 3 cups = 4 servings
  • Basil (Uncooked) = .5 lbs , or about 3 cups = 6 servings
  • Butterleaf Lettuce = .44 lbs, or 3 cups = 4 servings
  • Arugula = .22 lbs, or 3 cups = 3 servings

The NO3-NO2-NO Pathway: How dietary nitrate impacts our physiology

How nitrate impacts your cardiovascular system
— A quick primer —

1. Drink your shot

Over 90% of the ingested nitrate is absorbed into your bloodstream via the intestine

Nitrate (NO3) stays elevated in your bloodstream 6-8 hours

2. Bloodstream absorption

25% of the nitrate in your bloodstream is absorbed and concentrated by your salivary glands

75% of the nitrate (NO3) is excreted by your kidneys

3. Nitrate-rich saliva

Bacteria on the tongue converts nitrate to nitrite

It’s the only way our bodies convert nitrate (NO3) to nitrite (NO2)

4. Conversion to nitric oxide

Acid in the stomach converts nitrite to nitric oxide

Nitric oxide (NO) is a vasodilator that improves cardiovascular performance
Some of the nitrite bypasses the stomach, entering the bloodstream where it’s converted to NO

5. The Benefits of Beet It

Greater endurance

Enhanced strength

Improved sprint times

Improve blood flow

Lowered blood pressure

The discovery of nitric oxide as a vasodilator was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1998

How does the humble beet enhance cardio performance?

This delightful video explainer helps explain how consuming the dietary nitrate in Beet It Sport and Bars has such a profoundly positive impact on the cardio-vascular system — which translates into gains in terms of endurance, strength and lowered blood pressure. Highly recommended — from the very smart folks at ASAPScience.
