You Can't Beat Beet Juice: How It May Help Improve Athletic Performance!

Want improved athletic performance? Juice some beets and drink them down.

The results? Performance and power outcome were improved after drinking the beet juice, but not after the placebo. So maybe your grandmother was right: eating and drinking beets is good for your health and performance! Read more about this study here!
