A clinical trial from the University of Exeter reported that we can eat our way to more energy with the venerable beet. (Journal of Applied Physiology, August 09.) The 8 young males in the study who consumed beet juice for 8 consecutive days prior to cycling on an exercise bike were able to cycle up to 16% longer than when they consumed the placebo.
The star performer seems to be the beet’s nitrate compound that scientists believe somehow lowers the oxygen cost of exercise. The investigators were “amazed” by the effects of beet juice on oxygen uptake because this effect has never been achieved by any other means.
