Nitrates + Nitrites = Nitric Oxide

The reason beets enhance exercise performance is the first N:  nitrates.  Dietary nitrates are serially reduced to the second N, nitrites, to create the ultimate benefit, NO or nitric oxide.  Nitric oxide has three primary functions for athletes:

  • dilates blood vessels to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to muscles and cardiovascular system
  • increases efficiency of oxygen utilization for energy production
  • enhances the number of mitochondria to actually produce energy
