Beetroot Juice

Anyone taking beetroot juice and are you seeing any real benefit?

    I regularly have cartons of beetroot juice. Tastes like it’s doing good but haven’t noticed any benefits. Pink pee and possible change of stool colour to be expected.

    Last season I tried one of the concentrated bottles before the races, power numbers were the same as in training, so no effect.

    The claim is a 2% improvement, which is hard to measure anyway.

    Think you’re meant to take them prior to any event too…but yeah, not noticed much difference a few years back when I tried. If you’re a serious racer then you might benefit?
