    Sodium bicarbonate helps with muscle endurance. I havenít tried the beet juice but Iíve seen the infomercials.

    Beetjuice is high in nitrate which has been shown to help endurance athletes (cyclists) by lowering the oxygen cost of exercise.
    Doubtful it will aid in weightlifting which relies on immediate energy systems but it sure tastes good!

    Beet juice is also HIGHLY effective at reducing BP. Some research shows it works as good if not better than prescription drugs. But it takes a high quality beet juice powder to do so. Like Oldschool said the high nitrate levels are what does it

    I won't debate nor argue with any claims of beet juice being healthy for you, but I will tell you that I tried that powdered beet juice product that Dana Lash advocates on TV, and I found it to be the worst tasting crud I have ever tried. It actually tasted so bad to me that it made me nausious for hours! And as far as their claims for having energy 20 minutes after you drink it....LOL...I fell asleep 30 min after I drank it. Nasty stuff. I ended up getting a refund. JMO

    Beet Juice

    My favorite juice when I buy one is beet/orange/ginger. Beets are also fairly high in carbs, probably why it may help with energy while lifting.
