Frequently Asked Questions
What if your urine and other waste look pinkish after using BeetElite - is this normal?
Yes, this is perfectly normal. This occurrence is known as beeturia, the passage of pink or red urine after the ingestion of beetroot The observed color is due to the presence of a beet pigment, betacyanin, in the urine. Beeturia typically occurs in 10-14% of the population.
How does BeetElite improve athletic performance?
Beetroot is a source of antioxidants and dietary nitrates found in the soil and concentrated in beetroot. The body converts these dietary nitrates to Nitric Oxide (N-O), helping to support circulation, and thus, the volume and speed of nutrient delivery to the muscles. All which improve energy efficiency for performance and recovery.
Who is BeetElite for?
BeetElite is designed to be a pre-workout shot to support exercise and athletic performance. It is for anyone who does any kind of physical activity, from Olympic and professional athletes to hobbyists to people looking to keep active. Of course, it is also for anyone who just wants to enjoy the nutritional benefits of beets.
How is BeetElite different than regular beet juice?
BeetElite tastes better, acts faster and has more N-O potential than any other beetroot products that they have tested.
- Slightly sweetened with stevia, BeetElite has a mildly sweet and clean-tasting flavor. It is available in two delicious flavors: Black Cherry and Original.
- When mixed with four ounces of water, one 10g packet of BeetElite delivers the same Nitric Oxide power as one liter, or two 16.9 oz bottles, of the leading beet juice—or six whole beets!
- BeetElite helps the body convert to Nitric Oxide three times faster than beetroot juice. BeetElite can be consumed 30 minutes prior to exercise, as opposed to other beet products which take 90 minutes or longer to start working.
Do they use non-GMO beets?
Yes. The exceptional quality and effectiveness of BeetElite starts with the perfect beetroots—specially sourced non-GMO beetroots with the highest dietary nitrate content as confirmed through High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and ozone-based chemiluminescence testing.
When is the best time to take BeetElite?
BeetElite can be consumed as soon as 30 minutes prior to exercise. BeetElite maintains effective levels for up to six-eight hours, so unless you are working out two times a day, or longer than six hours, one serving should be enough. For events longer than six hours, you can take a second shot of BeetElite, after four hours. BeetElite is best if consumed within 15 minutes of mixing. Do not exceed more than two shots of BeetElite within 24 hours.
If someone is working to build strength, endurance and muscle. Can BeetElite help them?
Yes. Beneficial effects are seen for both strength and endurance athletes. Regular intake of dietary nitrates has long-term benefits, such as increased muscle mitochondrial density. Studies have shown increased mitochondrial density can be achieved within one week of adding dietary nitrates.
Is BeetElite safe to use?
Absolutely! BeetElite is a food, made up of simple ingredients —non-GMO beets, natural black cherry flavor, malic acid (which is derived from fruit), magnesium ascorbate, malic acid, and a small amount of stevia leaf extract. Further, their manufacturer is GMP-certified, ensuring the highest quality. Professional, collegiate, and Olympic athletes across the globe use BeetElite.
Is BeetElite paleo diet compliant?
Since BeetElite is sourced from 100% non-GMO beets, it is indeed compliant with a paleo diet. There are no added sugars, hormones, stimulants, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors. In fact, the paleo diet guidelines for athletes often suggest you consume vegetables, such as beets, to sustain energy levels during workouts.
Can you mix BeetElite with other beverages?
For best results, do not mix BeetElite with anything other than water, and drink it immediately.
Does BeetElite replace other fuel and hydration products?
They suggest you continue with your usual fueling and hydration strategies. As you incorporate BeetElite into your nutrition plan, you may be able to adjust other elements based on your personal sports nutrition goals, and your body’s response to increased Nitric Oxide levels. One 10-count box of BeetElite is designed to provide a two-week’s supply, when using BeetElite as a pre-workout shot for five days out of the week.
Doesn’t the dehydration process deplete the nutrients in beets?
Not with BeetElite! While the procedures that are usually used in most drying processes deplete the nutrients and nitrate content, their manufacturer has a low-heat drying process so the nutrient integrity, including dietary nitrates, of the perfect beetroot is maintained.
Does a loading period make BeetElite more effective?
BeetElite is designed to be effective in one single shot just 30 minutes before exercise. Some athletes prefer to take BeetElite for three days leading up to an event (priming stage), however, it is not necessary for effectiveness.
Is it normal to have some clumping in the BeetElite powder?
Yes. BeetElite is very sensitive to moisture and heat, and can begin to clump when exposed to heat or sunlight for too long. After using, close the container tightly and store in a cool, dry area. Note that clumping does not diminish the effectiveness of the product, and will dissolve when properly mixed with water. For ease of mixing, use a utensil to stir or break up the powder prior to scooping.
You ask a lot of your body: Replenish N-O every day
Much like with your overall health, diet and exercise play a large role in stimulating the natural production of N-O. Including more N-O stimulating foods, or foods that are high in dietary nitrates like spinach and beetroot, is a good start. Regular exercise, which also helps to promote N-O production, is a smart addition as well.
Unfortunately, in today's world of refined foods these options may not be enough, especially for those over 40. That's where functional foods, like their SuperBeets, BeetElite and supplements, like their Neo40, come in. Neo40 is a patented Nitric Oxide delivery system that generates authentic N-O gas that helps stimulate the production of N-O from the enzyme in the blood vessels, similar to exercise. Superbeets is a dietary nitrate-based food that provides the body with optimal levels of dietary nitrate and nitrite that can help make up for a diet insufficient in dietary nitrate intake. Finally, BeetElite is their super concentrated pre-workout formula that helps deliver a quick boost in Nitric Oxide production.
Curious as to whether your current diet contains enough dietary nitrate to support healthy Nitric Oxide levels? Scientists at HumanN developed Nitric Oxide Diagnostics Indicator Strips, the first non-invasive salivary Nitric Oxide indicator strip to give you insight into your current dietary regimen and whether supplementation is needed.
How N-O Impacts the Body
The discovery of Nitric Oxide's effect on your cardiovascular systems was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1998. And before that, it was named the Molecule of the Year in 1992 by researchers. N-O has been given high praise with good reason. This miracle molecule is able to carry messages at the cellular level because of its gaseous state and in doing so, relaxes blood vessels in your bodies, promoting arterial dilation and increased blood flow. By helping regulate and fine-tune cardiac function, Nitric Oxide isn't just important, it's indispensable. It is intrinsically tied to your ability to function as you were intended.
It makes sense that as Nitric Oxide relaxes the body's blood vessels and dilates arteries, it would promote increased blood flow throughout your bodies. But how does it do so? The short answer is that Nitric Oxide and your endothelial system have a direct relationship.
More specifically, the inner lining of your blood vessels that come in contact with blood are called endothelium and endothelial cells help produce N-O. That N-O penetrates the muscles in our arteries, not only relaxing them, but also reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. And with that comes improved circulation and all the benefits associated, including the support of a healthy blood pressure, increased energy and more.
Healthy Blood Pressure Levels
They've already covered the N-O and endothelial relationship. If they take it a step further, it's easy to understand how Nitric Oxide levels are crucial to healthy blood pressure levels. When arteries are dilated and circulation is increased, it can help regulate blood pressure in your bodies.
With Nitric Oxide's ability to increase circulation and oxygenation of the blood comes the added benefits of improved natural energy and stamina. That's why so many professional athletes look to Nitric Oxide, whether through dietary nitrates in whole foods or through functional nutrition, like their BeetElite. Because when your blood carries more oxygen to your muscles, your body becomes more efficient, delivering key nutrients and carrying away toxins. And if your body is more efficient and circulation is improved, endurance improves as well.
However, whether you're an athlete or not doesn't matter. Most of you seek more energy and stamina throughout your day, whether you're exercising or simply staying alert and focused at work. And while that may mean reaching for caffeine or an energy drink, it doesn't have to. Because increasing your Nitric Oxide levels promotes the energy and stamina you're looking for. They developed SuperBeets and BeetElite for exactly those reasons.
Their research on Nitric Oxide first began with the discovery of its unique impact on cardiovascular health. Its immense importance as a biological signaling molecule resulted in the awarding of the Nobel Prize in 1998. Realizing that the discovery of Nitric Oxide had immense potential, it didn't take long for their interest in N-O to become their passion.
Dr. Nathan Bryan, their Chief Science Officer and co-founder, has committed his life's work to the field of N-O research. By partnering with leading N-O discovery programs, such as the University of Texas Health Science Center, Dr. Bryan has identified and continues to identify ways to replenish the body's N-O, and even help the body to promote optimal N-O function.
Ready to bring N-O to the masses, Dr. Bryan co-founded Neogenis Laboratories, now HumanN, in 2009. Consulting with the top N-O scientists, doctors, registered dietitians, and healthcare thought-leaders, there is no other company more committed, or qualified, to bringing the best N-O functional foods and supplements to every human across every phase of life.
They're the only company in the world that holds an exclusive license to use their patented N-O platform technology. They pioneered that technology with the help of the N-O Discovery Program at the University of Texas. As a UT Austin technology portfolio company, they uphold extremely high standards, including continuous testing of their products to verify that they contain the appropriate levels of nutrients to ensure their products are providing the maximum N-O potential. They're also dedicated to conducting human clinical trials to support the safety and efficacy of their products.
Your health determines what you are able to do and the extent to which you can do it. Fortunately, you are more conscious of this relationship than ever before. You know which foods are beneficial and support your health and which ones are bad and detrimental to your health…and you try to eat more and less of each, respectively. You push yourself to exercise harder and more frequently. Or you just move more and sit less every chance you get. But despite your greatest efforts, it's difficult (even for the most disciplined and health conscious of you) to give your bodies precisely what they need to function at optimal levels. This is especially true as you approach the age of 40 and beyond, when your body's natural Nitric Oxide levels begin and then continue to fall. What this means is that too often, you are not feeling or performing at the level you can or should be.
Through their Nitric Oxide-enhancing line of functional foods and supplements, HumanN exists to help every human reach their full potential. A lofty mission, they know. But they wouldn't have it any other way. That's because they provide a real chance to change lives. And when they're at their loftiest, they can alter the trajectory of the entire human race.
