living on another planet for the last few years, you’ll no doubt have heard that beetroot juice has been creating quite the stir in sports nutrition circles. By enhancing blood flow in muscles, beetroot juice consumption can reduce the amount of 
oxygen needed by muscles to sustain a given output—Extending endurance.

Nutritional Highlights

Beets – Beetroot contains the essential nutrients potassium, magnesium and iron as well as vitamins A, B6 and C, and folic acid. Beetroot is a great source of soluble fibre which may help digestion, reduce high blood cholesterol and help prevent heart disease.

Ginger – Ginger is among the healthiest and zestiest spices on the planet. A natural anti-inflammatory, it may reduce nausea, help with digestion, fight cancer and boost the immune system. For athletes, ginger can open up your airways, assist in weight-loss, improve circulation and strengthen your immune system.

Coconut Milk – Loaded with natural pH feeding electrolytes, immunity and energy enhancing lauric acid and  fat burning MCTs.

Banana– Bananas are high in heart rate and blood pressure stabilizing potassium. Rich in antioxidants, which can provide protection from free radicals (not the tubular kind of radical.)

Strawberries – Strawberries contain 129% of the daily value of infection-fighting vitamin C and are a great source of potassium and magnesium—essential minerals that are lost through sweat.

Cranberries – Cranberries are packed with free radical fighting antioxidants and anti-inflammatory vitamin C, vitamin E and magnesium.
