More than six years after the first research was published, we now have a greater understanding of how and why beets boost performance. They contain large amounts of naturally-occurring dietary nitrates, which support the body’s ability to produce nitric oxide or NO.

Before NO2 explode and creatine supplements filled the shelves of supplement stores and online BodyBuilding Forums, great athletes throughout time relied on regular old foods that grew straight out of the ground. Much of the market boasts about mega nutrients and superfoods backed by mountains of research.

But is that right?

Do you have to rely on synthetic chemicals and Frankenfood concoctions to boost your performance?

Sadly, the most ordinary foods are often overlooked for their ability to pack a punch your performance.  Let’s take beets for example.
