    Sports Research

    Why is Beet It Sport the #1 natural nitrate supplement used by research?

    Beet It Sport shots guarantee 400mg of natural nitrate from concentrated beetroot juice – the amount required for sports performance improvement. This is why our Beet It Sport shots have become the go-to-standard among elite athletes and researchers.

    Our Beet It Sport shots have been independently used for research in over 200 nutritional, medical and sports science institutes and universities in over 30 countries worldwide (UK, US, Australia, Canada, China, Africa, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, The Netherlands and many more).

    Leading research into dietary nitrate supplementation for sports performance is undertaken at The University of Exeter under Professor Andy Jones (@AndyBeetroot).

    Placebo Beetroot Shots –  the true placebo

    We are incredibly proud to have developed nitrate-depleted placebo versions of SPORT shots in conjunction with The University of Exeter. Why remove the active ingredient? – well, researchers need to test Beet It Sport against a true placebo to ensure the beneficial effects are indeed caused by the active ingredient nitrate.

    Nitrate-depleted shots also enable a double-blind trial to be conducted, which means neither the participant or research know which participants are receiving the nitrate-rich Beet It Sport shot and which are not. Ultimately, this leads to more robust research as researchers can attribute the positive effects to the active ingredient, nitrate.

    We are happy to provide our Placebo Beet It Sport shots to teams and institutions worldwide for research. For more information please email us directly.

    Below are a list of papers that have been published on the subject of the benefits of natural nitrate supplementation.
