Beets have been gaining popularity lately due to their superfood properties. We saw a big buzz coming from athletes who drink beet juice as a pre-race fuel. Nitrates contained in beets would help use oxygen more efficiently and nourish muscles throughout the physical effort. While it works for many endurance athletes, it might not make much difference for your 10-km race next month or your occasional long walks on the weekends.
Still, it is fascinating to see how much more beets can offer other than its vivid reddish pink color and sweet palate-pleasing flavor. Its high antioxidant content will make you as healthy as a horse.
