Beetroot juice can increase stamina: study

Updated on : Saturday, August 8, 2009

LONDON: Drinking beetroot juice can increase stamina, allowing keep-fit enthusiasts and athletes to exercise for longer”, according to a research carried out by British researchers.

It stated that a daily glass of the vegetable juice helped men to work out for 16% longer than when they had a regular fruit drink.

The effects are being credited to the nitrates in the juice, which, according to scientists, help the body to use less oxygen. This means that people feel less tired when they are exercising.
