Beetroot and your active gaming lifestyle
Long associated with increased stamina, beetroot has become a byword among athletes because of its effectivity as a dietary supplement in boosting performance during sports and training.
The secret is its high nitrate levels. Nitrates affect how our blood carries oxygen. When converted into nitric oxide, they become are vital in replenishing the body’s oxygen levels during strenuous physical activities. Nitric oxide causes the vasodilation of blood vessels, which increases blood flow and helps deliver more oxygen (as well as glucose and other nutrients) to the muscles, resulting in increased gaming performance and endurance.
A recent study showed that given as a single dose or over a few days, beetroot supplementation could improve overall performance during intermittent, high-intensity efforts with short rest periods. For people with active lifestyles and are constantly under stress, the nitrates in red beets may also help lower blood pressure and bring down the risk of heart disease and stroke.
But wait — there’s more! Not only are beetroots great for your body, they could possible do wonders for your brain. The same nitrates that increases the flow of oxygen to the muscles also improves blood flow to the brain, which may result in improved cognitive function and even potentially slow down the progress of dementia among the elderly.
In fact, beetroot juice has been cited by researchers for helping boost cognitive performance among e-sports players.
