About Beet Boost
Beet Boost is a 100 percent clean, functional food. There are no synthetic ingredients or additives. It is a super concentrated powder made using two patented dehydration processes.
For peak athletic performance, post-workout recovery, and everyday energy, BeetBoost is a proven, unmatched combination that separates itself from other commercial beetroot juice products.
Two Superfoods in One Serving
Beet Boost’s beet and tart cherry blend serve as a double-edged sword for powering sports performance and recovery.
The inorganic nitrate from beetroot juice converts to nitric oxide, a molecule that improves cardiovascular health and exercise performance. The anthocyanins from tart cherry provide beneficial properties which are not usually found together in food—that are protective against signs and symptoms of exercise-induced muscle damage. About the science:
• Nitric oxide, a gas crucial to proper physiological functioning. Helps blood vessels relax to improve oxygen delivery to muscles. This enhances the efficiency of oxygen to muscles during strenuous exercise.
• Oxygen, vital for muscle power energy. Athletes are under constant energy demand, especially during submaximal exercise (~85% of max heart rate). Increased oxygen availability can enhance muscle efficiency.
• Mental clarity, more accurate decision-making. Increased blood flow to the brain helps shuttle in oxygen and nutrients for clearer thinking and faster response times during intense competitions.
• Reduce pain. Intense exercise can lead to muscle discomfort hours and days after exercise. Tart cherry helps ensure athletes are not out on the sidelines.
• Faster recovery. Tart cherry juice is a feasible and more healthful alternative to non-food-based pills and potions because it has demonstrated specific recovery benefits following strenuous exercise.

How Beet Boost Works
Beets contain naturally occurring nitrates. When you consume beets some of the nitrates mix with enzymes in your saliva, which converts nitrate to nitrite. The nitrite is then naturally converted to nitric oxide (“N-O”).
Your body already produces N-O in the endothelium layer that lines your arteries. This thin layer of cells responds to the needs of the tissues by regulating blood pressure at the local level. When the endothelium cells detect that the sheer force of blood moving through your body is too high they make nitric oxide and diffuse it into the smooth muscle layer and causes it to relax. This is called “vasodilation” where the arteries literally dilate and increase their diameter size.
Where there’s not enough N-O being produced blood flow is reduced and muscles get stiff. Adding BeetBoost to your diet helps you feel oxygenated and alive 100% naturally—without any artificial flavors or sweeteners.
About the Creator of Beet Boost
Richard Perry is the founder of NutriGardens, a Portland, Oregon based company he created to help others end the causes of various physical issues.
He is a Le Cordon Bleu trained chef of 30 years, recipe developer, and best-selling author of “The Good Home Cookbook: More Than 1000 Classic American Recipes,” named “One of the Year’s Best Cookbooks” by Food & Wine Magazine.
Rick went vegan–overnight–after challenging himself to make plant-based meals that were equally satisfying as those from the animal kingdom from which he was trained.
His company is vegan too. The company’s first product is Beet Boost—a concentrated beet and tart cherry blend that’s making headway in the sports, vegan and vegetarian, and natural health communities.
Richard lives in his native Portland, Oregon with his wife and kids.
Inspiration & Evolution of Beet Boost
Beet Boost was born from juicing fruits and vegetables as a means to recover after a serious bicycle accident. Among all the juices, Richard noticed beets stood out. He wanted to share this with others but the juice was too unstable, it required pasteurization and refrigeration and lost its nutrients quickly. With the help of a food scientist friend and Oregon State University, he learned about various methods of dehydrating fresh juices. That led him down a nearly three-year path testing and formulating.
In 2014, Richard met a dietitian with a professional sports team who was in search of a high-quality beet performance product. He had no idea athletes had interest in beet juice at the time. Richard added tart cherry extract which he was already testing at standardized levels of anthocyanins and sent out samples.
The dietitian loved it and Richard and his family began packaging nearly 500 servings a month in his kitchen for the one team alone. The success was posted on social media and that brought other interest. News began to spread, sales began to grow, and Richard decided it was time to go into full production.
Today the company serves Beet Boost not just to professional sports teams, colleges, and individual elite athletes but also to several health communities.
