By now, every AIM Member is aware of the athletic benefits of beet juice. We all know that Red Rush provides a boost of much needed stamina to competitive athletes and helps them recover quickly from their grueling workouts. However, the athletic benefits are just the beginning. Did you know that there have been over sixteen studies that have shown that beet juice can lower blood pressure? The most recent one found that the blood pressure benefits of daily beet juice consumption lasted for two weeks after the subjects stopped drinking the juice.
Our veins can become damaged by a sedentary lifestyle, the aging process and by poor dietary choices. This damage disrupts the body’s ability to create nitric oxide. In fact, the inability to produce sufficient amounts of nitric oxide is the main feature of endothelial dysfunction. Red Rush provides the body with 500 mg of dietary nitrate, the building blocks of nitric oxide. To put that amount in perspective, the average American gets 60- 120 mg of dietary nitrate a day. Someone on the Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension Diet consumes 500-660 mg. One tiny shot of Red Rush provides you with your daily dose of therapeutic dietary nitrate. Red Rush may also provide these other benefits:
Lowers Blood Pressure
In a recent study, participants who drank beet juice saw an 8/4 mmHg reduction in blood pressure, a 20 percent improvement in blood vessel dilation and a 10 percent reduction in arterial stiffness.
Improves Cognitive Functioning
Improved cranial blood flow has been linked to enhanced cognitive functioning and quicker reaction times. Drinking beet juice to improve blood flow to the brain is also being researched as a way to mitigate the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s
Assists with Basic Mobility
One study found that beet juice consumption made walking twelve percent easier, and recently, scientists at Kansas State University have been giving beet juice to heart failure patients in order to help get them mobile again, a critical factor of their recoveries.
Nitric oxide facilitates sleep, and due to improved blood flow, it may assist the brain in achieving essential rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.
Warmer, Healthier Skin
Healthy circulation improves skin quality and keeps the extremities nice and warm.
When the circulatory system is working well, the body can repair itself faster by moving white blood cells, nutrients, medicine and platelets to the affected areas.
Nearly 90 percent of erectile dysfunction can be linked to poor circulation, and there is some evidence that a percentage of female sexual dysfunction is related to improper blood flow.
When the cabin pressure lowers, so does the oxygen in your blood. Beet juice has been shown to improve oxygen utilization, allowing people to get more use out of less oxygen.
Nitric oxide may help improve metabolic rates, and a surprising study found that dietary nitrate could help change white fat into the
easier-to-burn brown fat.
Having sufficient amounts of nitric oxide can really energize the body. Additionally, one of the biggest symptoms of poor circulation is fatigue. Red Rush can provide natural energy.
