Did you know that beets improve athletic performance? 🏃🏿♀️🏋🏼♂️ 🏊🏾♀️ Drinking beet juice 1 to 3 hours before an athletic event can provide a 1 to 3 percent boost in performance–enough to give you a serious competitive edge. That’s because beets raise nitric oxide levels, which increase blood flow, improve lung function, and strengthen muscle contraction.
So if ya’ll wanna up your athletic/ workout game, beet it up! 💪🏽
