Red Rush: Product Information
Red Rush contains concentrated beet juice that
generates a nitric oxide boost, providing improved
For performance, stamina, and recovery, the body needs an infusion of nitric oxide through whole-food, natural sources. Red Rush meets this need with a highly concentrated beet juice shot. Nitric oxide significantly impacts blood flow and oxygenation, two keys to improving athletic and physical performance.
Made with quality and integrity, Red Rush contains no added colors, flavors, or preservatives. This product has been tested for the absence of sport-prohibited substances identified by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
Beets reign supreme with natural nitrate
Therapeutic amounts of nitrate from beets range from 300
mg to 500 mg daily. Red Rush provides 500 mg of nitrate from high quality
beet juice in a single serving for maximum benefit.
About Nitric Oxide
Nitric oxide provides circulatory and respiratory benefits for
the body by relaxing smooth muscles and supporting blood flow
to the tissues. This has great impact as the circulation and oxygenation
of the blood permeates throughout the body system.
Oxygen is essential to sustained performance. As we exert
ourselves, we run out of oxygen, which leads to build up of lactic
acid in the muscle tissue, which further leads to fatigue. The
burn felt from a hard workout is the result of a lack of oxygen.
Fatigue and burn can be stemmed by supplying more oxygen
to the tissues.
The American Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism published
a study that tested a group of endurance cyclists and
found that nitric oxide helped them assimilate glucose at an
increased rate, especially during workouts of an extended
duration. These tests also pointed to the potential that when
introduced to the body, nitric oxide may help burn fat as fuel.
As one of the richest source of dietary nitrate, beet juice is
an integral component for increasing nitric oxide levels in the
body, making it an ideal whole food for enhancing circulation
naturally and safely through vasodilation, not increased heart rate.
The result is stronger performance. A study published in Medicine & Science
in Sports & Exercise found that cyclists who drank beet juice before 2.5-mile
and 10-mile time trials were almost 3 percent faster and produced more
power than when they rode without drinking beet juice.
A study by Queen Mary University discovered that volunteers who drank
one cup of beet juice experienced lower blood pressure within twenty-four
Nitric oxide is produced from nitrate, and the greatest source of nitrate is vegetables. Unlike the nitrates found in processed, preserved foods like hot dogs, natural nitrate from vegetables is not harmful and is essential to a number of integral reactions and functions in the body.
Nitrate conversion into nitric oxide takes a circuitous route in the body along the nitrate-nitrite-nitric oxide pathway. Nitrate is converted to nitrite by bacteria in the mouth. Nitrite, in turn, is converted to nitric oxide via several possible enzymatic and nonenzymatic routes.
Frequently Asked Questions about Red Rush
Who can benefit from beet juice?
Anyone from amateur to elite athletes, as well as sedentary people, can benefit
from beet juice. As we age, our bodies become less efficient at producing nitric
oxide. By the time you’re forty, studies show you’re only making about half or
less of what you made when you were twenty.
How do I know that I’m deficient in nitric oxide?
Nitric oxide test strips can determine your nitrate levels through a quick and easy saliva test.
Does Red Rush taste like beets?
No. Red Rush tastes like dark cherry juice with a hint of alkalizing lemon juice.
Is there an immediate energy boost after drinking Red Rush?
No. Red Rush is not a stimulant like caffeine. Red Rush improves performance
naturally over extended periods of time.
Can I drink more than one shot per day?
For extreme training and events, two shots can be consumed daily. No additional benefit can be gained by taking more.
Will Red Rush turn my urine pink?
Yes. This effect is called beeturia. Beeturia is the passing of red- or pink-colored urine caused by beet consumption.
I started taking Red Rush, and I feel worse. Why?
When you make a change in your diet, your body often goes through a cleansing
known as detoxification. This can manifest itself in fatigue, rashes, and
headaches. It is your body flushing out toxins.
