Beets & Berries: Nutritional Superstars

Some foods have your back. Nutrient-dense and filled with beneficial compounds, they can do you a world of good. Beets and berries both fit that description. Learn what these superfoods have to offer!



Beets Fuel Your Workout


Beets have become a favored food for athletes over the past decade. Why? The short answer is that they improve sports performance. The interesting part is how.


Beets contain nitrates. No, not the food additive found in hot dogs; that’s nitrites. Nitrates are plant compounds your body can convert to nitric oxide. That’s desirable because nitric oxide relaxes your blood vessels and improves blood flow. And more blood flow means more oxygen and nutrients get delivered to all the cells in your body. 


This increased blood flow translates to real performance benefits. Clinical research shows beets can reduce exercise-induced fatigue, which is great news for people who engage in anaerobic exercise, such as weightlifting, or muscular endurance events, such as cycling, sprinting, and CrossFit. Beets can also improve exercise performance during prolonged endurance exercise, such as long-distance running. Finally, beets shorten recovery time, reducing soreness after working muscles out hard.




Berries Defend You from Free Radicals


Berries consistently appear on lists of the world’s healthiest foods. These little gems are heart-healthy, good for brain health, and linked to longevity.,,, One reason berries are so good for you is that they contain powerful antioxidants such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and resveratrol. Why does that matter?


The cells of your body are under constant attack from free radicals. These harmful compounds are produced by normal metabolic processes of the body and from exposure to pollution and other toxins. Antioxidants protect you from this assault. 


Dark chocolate, green tea, wine, nuts, many spices, and most fruits and vegetables are high in antioxidants, but berries stand out as cell defenders. Berries like blueberries, strawberries, black currants, raspberries, and açai berries are among the most antioxidant-rich foods you can eat.
