Beets have great health benefits: increase stamina, improve blood flow, rich in nitrates and lower blood pressure.
Research is showing that beet juice improves stamina during intense exercise.
And I am a believer in the truth of this. I was lucky to get to go to Disneyworld for vacation this year. Love that place. But the walking is WAY more activity than I do on a regular basis; we usually walk between 6 and 10 miles per day. I wanted to enjoy the parks and be wide awake to get to the must have rides and not slow down anyone else while it was early and cool. My solution, beet juice to wake me up and give me the stamina I needed.
So we headed out the door early in the morning and I grabbed my bottle of water with added Purium’s Beet powder. That was the perfect way to start my day. Got me going and kept me going well into the day. And so easy just add the powder to a bottle of water.
It can also be a great way to start your regular work day. Instead of starting out with a cup of coffee start with a bottle of water full of beets. Delicious and a great wake me up.
