Beet Shot contains concentrated beetroot juice with the addition of citrulline. It contains a high content of nitrates.
Citrulline is an organic chemical compound from the group of amino acids, a derivative of ornithine. Its main advantage is supporting the process of arginine synthesis in the human body. In practice, this means that the amount of citrulline ingested will increase the amount of arginine in our body. This action directly translates into the amount of nitric oxide, which is synthesized under the influence of arginine, will affect the expansion of blood vessels and better blood supply to the working muscle.
Additionally, citrulline has an anti-catabolic effect, which translates into support in the protection of muscle tissue against its breakdown. If you want to maximize the effects of products such as BCAA or HMB, which are used to protect muscle tissue, citrulline may turn out to be a good ally.
The effect of citrulline can also be felt by people practicing endurance sports. Using it in the amount of about 6g a day effectively supports muscle endurance and improves the effective functioning of muscle tissue during training. The action can be related to the amount of nitric oxide produced and improves the transport of hydrogen ions, which deacidifies the body. An additional activity is faster alkalization and transport of ammonia, which makes the so-called “Soreness”, or delayed muscle pain that occurs after intense anaerobic exercise, appears at reduced intensity.
In order to meet the expectations of athletes and people working on the body shape, the properties of compounds contained in beets began to be examined. The presence of nitrates and betaines speaks for the use of beetroot extracts in dietary supplements.
It is also worth mentioning that nitrates have been successfully used for quite a long time in erection problems or in ischemic heart disease. The appropriate activity of the NOS synthase enzyme acting as a catalytic enzyme, as well as the presence of arginine, citrulline and oxygen have a very good effect on the work of our heart. At the same time, they are useful to the muscles. Not only because of the properties we mentioned earlier. It is also worth adding that along with the phenomenon of the muscle pump and the expansion of blood vessels, the energy store is also increased. Moreover, the more intense and exhausting the training, the more intensive the processes inside our body.
