Why Beet Boost?
It takes about 4 medium beets and 40 tart cherries to make one concentrated serving of BeetBoost®. The nitrates in beets convert to nitric oxide, which increases energy, mental clarity and stamina. Tart cherry anthocyanins work in synergy with beets to maximize muscle performance during and after exercise. BeetBoost is two powerful, all-natural superfoods in one portable single serving packet.
Let us count the ways …
- Improved endurance and cardiovascular health: concentrated all-natural beets increase nitrate levels which are converted to “N-O” (Nitric Oxide), which relaxes blood vessels, improving cardiovascular function and performance. N-O also helps to improve oxygen consumption in muscles and delay muscular fatigue and improve endurance.
- Improved mental clarity: nitric oxide increases vasodilation increasing blood flow to your brain and improving mental clarity. N-O also facilitates sleep by allowing you to achieve REM sleep more often due to increased elasticity of blood vessels.
- Improved recovery: tart cherries found in BeetBoost contain phytonutrients called anthocyanins, which are antioxidants which help mange muscle and joint health.
Mother Nature did all the work.
We just made it a little better …

How BEET BOOST Works
From increased energy to a sharper mind, how can a single serving of BeetBoost give you so many feel-good benefits?
Nature did it.
The super hero for maintaining heart health and high performance
How Beets Work
Beets are high in a compound called nitrates. When you eat beets, these nitrates turn into life-enhancing nitric oxide. As you may know, nitric oxide dilates (widens) blood vessels and affect how efficiently your cells use
oxygen. In turn, more oxygen and nutrient-rich blood flows freely throughout your brain and body.
A double-blind crossover study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, showed that the high nitrate content of beets “acutely improves running performance.” Runners given beets went an average of three percent faster than the control group given a placebo. Proving the endurance building power of beets, these runners had the biggest speed gains during the last 1.1 miles of the race!
Beet Health Benefits
Maximizing blood flow is important because your 37+ trillion cells get cleaned and fed through the nutrients and oxygen delivered by your blood. When blood flows freely, many people feel more alert and focused.
More oxygen-rich blood also helps muscles – including the heart muscle – work more efficiently too.
When muscles work more efficiently, they don’t burn as much oxygen,
resulting in more power with less effort. People report higher endurance levels and faster recovery after exercise.
Essentially, beets help you perform at higher levels without getting tired as easily.
The beets used in BeetBoost are grown in high-nitrate soil so you get as much naturally-occurring nitrates per beet as possible.

How Tart Cherries Work
All cherries contain a good dose of antioxidants and other vitamins. But tart cherries pack more of the powerful type of antioxidants and nutrients shown to help cells protect against damage, repair from damage, and regenerate new healthy cells as needed.
Tart cherries are especially effective because they contain a wide range of a particular type of antioxidant called anthocyanins (pronounced an-tho-sigh-uh-nins). That’s what gives high-antioxidant fruit their blue, purple, and red colors.
A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial tested tart cherry juice on a group of patients suffering from osteoarthritis. One group drank the juice for 3 weeks, the other group drank a placebo. The tart cherry juice drinkers showed a significant decrease in pain and swelling. And their C-reactive protein (the chemical marker for inflammation), decreased significantly.
Tart Cherry Health Benefits
No matter how careful we are, we damage our bodies just by living a typical modern life. For example, chemicals in household products, breathing polluted air, processed foods, medication, and stress constantly create more inflammation and free radical damage (what antioxidants protect against).
Even exercising can create damage, because it’s easy to strain muscles, which triggers excess inflammation. That shows up as burning, stiffness, or pain.
The anthocyanins found in tart cherries aid in keeping cells healthier and stronger so they don’t get damaged in the first place. When damage does occur, the anthocyanins go to work helping cells repair.
You end up feeling healthier and reducing pain because you’re producing less inflammation and less free radical damage. This is extremely important because inflammation and free radical damage (also known as oxidative stress) are linked to every known disease from arthritis to Alzheimer’s.
In a nutshell, tart cherries can help you feel better now. And help you maintain good health well into the future.
The tart cherries in BeetBoost is a special blend of varieties to give you the widest spectrum of anthocyanins for maximum benefits.

The trouble with energy drinks.
How you feel on energy drinks can be summarized in 3 words: spike, crash, addiction. In that order. Even if you avoid caffeine, supposedly “healthy” energy drinks can be bad for you. Here are a few reasons why…
Energy drinks can hijack your brain
Most energy drinks contain a huge amount of refined sugars. This gives you a short-term energy kick, but you’ll soon crash. Desperate for the kick again, your body craves more sugar. You oblige, then you soon crash again. And the cycle continues.
We call this quick boost and crash “candy conditioning.”
It’s a tough cycle to escape because sugar and artificial sweeteners affect the brain in a similar way to narcotics. Sugars cause the brain to create opioids, the same chemical stimulated by cocaine.
Opioids trick your body into feeling more energized than it is. So you’re faked into believing the sugar’s making you feel better. But opioids are strongly addictive. That’s why people who rely on sugary energy drinks or other sugar-packed snacks often end up with unhealthy diets, lower energy levels, and reduced physical ability. Even disciplined athletes fall victim to this.
If you think you’ll just go for natural sweeteners, think again…
Don’t be fooled by “healthy” sweeteners
Some energy drinks avoid listing sugar by using “healthy” alterative sweeteners like Stevia and agave nectar. But research shows these alternative sweeteners may be problematic.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published concerns that Stevia may have “effects on the reproductive, cardiovascular, and renal systems.”
A lot of people like agave for its super sweet taste. Agave is a plant, and because it’s so sweet tasting, you can use less. So it’s a win-win, right? Not so fast.
Agave is so highly refined during processing, it ends up containing more fructose than the high-fructose corn syrup used in junk food. And fructose has been shown to provide significantly less endurance than other types of sugars. Making this the least ideal for athletes or anyone wanting sustained energy.
Flavors as natural as plastic
Many energy drinks list natural flavors in their ingredients. Although the name sounds healthy, the regulations qualifying this label are vague and non-binding. The FDA defines natural flavors as “any substance extracted, distilled, or otherwise derived from plant or animal matter.” Yes, animal matter.
In many cases, the original ingredient’s so processed, what ends up in your food is a long way from what would normally be considered natural.
Even more concerning, the FDA can’t keep up with how fast labs churn out new flavorings and additives. “We simply do not have the information to vouch for the safety of many of these chemicals,” said Michael Taylor, the deputy commissioner for food at the FDA.
As if that’s not scary enough, think of what the label’s not telling you…
Hidden stimulants and other chemicals
Trying to avoid caffeine? Or questionable herbs? Then you may want to stay away from energy drinks that list proprietary blends.
Nationally recognized nutrition consultant and author Karen Ansel warns, “Buyer beware. Almost every energy drink has its own ‘energy blend’ of proprietary ingredients. And keep in mind that manufactures aren’t required to tell you how much of each ingredient their product contains.”
BEET BOOST is pure raw energy
Because BeetBoost is so pure and the fiber’s filtered out, the nutrients quickly go to work raising energy levels, supporting muscles, and much more.
By removing the fiber, it’s easier on your digestive system too. So during long games and races, refueling with BeetBoost ensures the energy goes straight where you need it most.

What's in BeetBoost®?
BeetBoost contains two super food ingredients: beet + tart cherry. It takes approximately 6 medium beets and 35 tart cherries to make one serving.
I’m not sure I like beets. What does BeetBoost® taste like?
BeetBoost tastes like what’s in it: beets and tart cherries. It’s slightly sweet from the beets and a little tart from the cherries. It’s the taste of real.
How do I use it?
Stir BeetBoost with 4 to 6 ounces of water or blend in a smoothie. Consume 30-60 minutes before exercise for the nitrates to begin their best work. However, you may begin to feel refreshed, focus and energized in just five minutes. Two servings a day is ideal, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You can use BeetBoost like any good ingredient. Our friends send photos of BeetBoost in yogurt, cereal, muffins, pancakes, homemade energy bars, iced tea, even a beet martini! Take with you on trips or places of high altitude. It’s essential nutrition even when you’re not exercising.
Can I mix BeetBoost® with citrus?
Yes! You can mix BeetBoost with lemon, orange or any citrus juice.
How is BeetBoost® made?
We first crush and then strain the fiber from the juices of fresh beets and tart cherries. Each juice is dried separately using patented low-temperature dehydration methods. After drying, the powder is filtered, like flour through a sifter, into a superfine powder. This makes BeetBoost smooth and grit-free. The ingredients are combined in exacting amounts to reach our targeted nutrient goals. All steps involve strict FDA regulatory compliance and approval for sale.
Is BeetBoost® a smoothie?
No. BeetBoost is pure concentrated beet juice and tart cherry extract. Unlike a smoothie, we remove the fiber for faster absorption. A true beet shot. You can add BeetBoost to your smoothies or stir with water. It’s superfine, grit-free and tasty.
What is potassium and why is there so much in BeetBoost?
Potassium is a naturally occurring mineral found in beets. Potassium works with sodium to balance the fluids and electrolyte levels in your body. For athletes or intense workouts, that’s really important. Because steady fluid levels help regulate your heart, muscles and joints. Potassium has also been associated with supporting strong bones and a healthy kidney. BeetBoost contains a whopping 180mg of naturally occurring potassium per serving.
Why does BeetBoost turn my pee red?
Beets are high in a pigment called betanin. It’s a great antioxidant, but if you can’t break it down, it can color your urine or feces red. It’s totally harmless and don’t worry, you’re still absorbing the other nutrients from the beets. Depending on how much water you drink and how often you have bowel movements, the red should go away within 24 hours.
BEET BOOST Tip
BeetBoost is not just for athletes. Try it if you’re looking to improve mental clarity and reduce fatigue first thing in the morning or to perk-up your afternoons at work—naturally—without crashing.
