Beet powder (main picture)
Beets contain nitrates, which are converted into nitric acid in the body. Nitric acid works to widen (vasodilate) your blood vessels, increasing blood flow to your muscles as they work and helping them to work more efficiently.
Beet powder offers more concentrated nitrates than whole beets.
Blood pressure numbers have also been shown to be kept within a healthy range by the same nitrates that occur naturally in beets, and they also fight inflammation in the body.
Whisk beetroot powder into smoothies or yogurts, add it to brownies and other baked goods, and drink it — mixed with water — half an hour before hitting the gym.
