Red Rush: Product InformationRed Rush contains concentrated beet juice that generates a nitric oxide boost, providing improved physical endurance.
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 hours.
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.
