About SuperBeets

Everyone wants to naturally maximize their health, but with so many different foods out there, it can be difficult focusing on the ones that will pack the most punch.

To help make the process easier, SuperBeets is a superfood beetroot powder containing high levels of dietary nitrates that, when taken on a regular basis, claim to boost nitric oxide levels, support heart health and healthy blood pressure, promote improved energy, and maintain stamina.

Each batch of SuperBeets is made using a patented low heat drying process that preserves nutritional integrity, so it promises to deliver “exponentially more” nitric oxide power than other conventional beet products.

All you need to do is add one heaping scoop of SuperBeets to 4-6oz of cold water (or to your favorite smoothie or protein shake) up to 2 times per day, and the finely granulated crystals will immediately go to work dilating blood vessels and regulating blood flow to all the organs in your body. With each serving, you’ll get the equivalent of 3 whole non-GMO beets, or 1 half-liter bottle of beet juice—without side effects!

Who knew beets were so power-packed? But what’s all this talk about nitric oxide? When it comes down to it, can SuperBeets really provide all of these great benefits? We’ll break it down in this review.

What Is Beetroot? How Does It Relate to Nitrates?

Beets have been consumed by humans for millennia, although it wasn’t until Roman times that the round, red root portion (i.e. the root) was eaten on a regular basis. Before then, only the leafy greens that sprout above the ground were used.

Despite this, beetroot contains some of the highest sugar content in the vegetable kingdom, along with essential vitamins and minerals such as fiber, vitamin C and B6, magnesium, phosphorus, and more. However, beets also contain a lot of carbohydrates, so eating too many may result in weight gain.

Beets also contain natural chemicals known as nitrates, which are transformed inside the body into nitric oxide (NO), a gas that can help widen blood vessels, improve circulation, and more. As such, nitrates in pill form are often prescribed by doctors for patients experiencing chest pain (angina) related to heart disease.

Now, what about SuperBeets’ claims? Nitrates have reams of clinical evidence showing that they can improve circulation, but can this powdered supplement do the same? Will it also boost energy and promote exercise endurance?

First, let’s take a look at what SuperBeets contains.

What Ingredients Are Found In SuperBeets?

Taking a look at SuperBeets’ nutrition label, there doesn’t seem to be anything unnatural or added after the fact:

  • Calories 15
  • Total Fat 0g
  • Sodium 65mg
  • Potassium 160mg
  • Carbohydrates 4g
  • Sugars 3g
  • Protein 1g
  • Magnesium 10mg
  • Vitamin C 50mg

Seems pretty standard, right? Will these ingredients actually deliver on their promises?

Is There Any Clinical Evidence Supporting SuperBeets’ Claims?

Unfortunately, the company doesn’t provide any clinical evidence on their website to support their claims. On Dr. Nathan Bryan’s page (more about him shortly) under their Leadership section, we found several studies that showed the health benefits of nitrates and nitrites (much of which we covered above), although nothing specifically related to SuperBeets.

Elsewhere online, WebMD claims that there is insufficient clinical evidence showing that eating beets can reliably provide any benefits, although they do mention:

“Early research suggests that taking a specific product (Neo40-Daily by Neogenis Labs) containing beet root and hawthorn berry twice a day for 30 days might reduce a type of fat found in the blood called triglycerides in people who are at risk for heart disease.”

Remember this point, because we’ll come back around to it shortly.

We also came across mixed results for improved exercise performance related to beetroot juice in general (not specifically for SuperBeets, though).

Outside of this, we found numerous websites promoting the vitamin and nutrient content of beetroot, but nothing substantiating the physical effects of the nitrates it contains. Despite this general lack of evidence, will beets in general—or SuperBeets specifically—cause any side effects?

Potential SuperBeets Side Effects

Regularly eating beets or taking a supplement like SuperBeets doesn’t appear to cause many unwanted side effects, although WebMD notes that eating too much can lead to low calcium levels and kidney damage. Due to their strong color, beets can also temporarily turn urine and stool a reddish color.

As we mentioned above, beets are high in carbohydrates and sugars, so they might not be your first choice if you’re on a weight loss program.

Note: According to at least one section of the SuperBeets website, you shouldn’t take more than two 5g scoops in a 24-hour period, while elsewhere they claim you shouldn’t take more than four scoops.

Efficacy and side effects aside, how much will you pay for SuperBeets?

What Are Customers Saying About SuperBeets in Their Reviews?

Interestingly, we found very little online customer feedback for SuperBeets at the time of our research.

Supplement-Geek.com provided a fairly in-depth analysis of the company’s claims and found that, while there is limited clinical evidence showing that consuming beets can increase your body’s nitric oxide levels, a lot of questions remain. For example:

  • Exactly how does this work?
  • Where’s the clinical evidence supporting the company’s claims?
  • If SuperBeets does work, how long does it elevate NO levels?
  • Does SuperBeets work any better or worse than the competition (more about this next)? What about juicing your own beets?

From a company perspective, SuperBeets is manufactured by Neogenis Labs (the company will soon change their name to Human Power of N), based out of Austin, TX. The company had an A+ Better Business Bureau rating based on 3 closed complaints (as of 6/8/16), although no details were available.

Who Is Nathan S. Bryan, PhD & John L. Ivy, PhD?

Neogenis Labs/Human Power of N was founded by two individuals, Nathan S. Bryan, PhD and John L. Ivy, PhD.

Dr. Bryan is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Baylor College of Medicine, formerly an Assistant Professor of Molecular Medicine within the Brown Foundation Institute of Molecular Medicine. He also works with the Texas Therapeutics Institute to “carry out translational research and drug discoveries related to cancer, cardiovascular disease and stem cells.”

Dr. Ivy received his PhD in Exercise Physiology from the University of Maryland, and has “served on the faculty at the University of Texas for 31 years and as Chair of the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education for 13 years.” He’s the author of 170+ scientific papers and numerous book chapters.

The Bottom Line About SuperBeets

Yes, beets contain high levels of nitrates, as do other foods like arugula and iceberg lettuce, spinach, celery, and more. Whatever foods you get them from, though, there simply isn’t enough clinical evidence to say with any certainty that food-based nitrates can improve exercise performance, boost energy, or maintain stamina—including SuperBeets.

Another concern is that we’re not told what levels of nitrates you’ll find in each serving of SuperBeets, although each one contains about one-third of your daily recommended intake of added sugar. As we mentioned above, combined with the high carbohydrate level found in beets, this means that SuperBeets might not be a diet-friendly supplement.

Speaking of which, there are dozens upon dozens of powdered beet supplements available online and at health food stores near you. Granted, not all of these will feature the same patented technology found in SuperBeets, but if you’re in the market for one of these powders, keep in mind that it’s not your only option. Much of the competition is less expensive, too.

Taking this together, should you spend your money on SuperBeets? Between the general lack of clinical evidence, missing customer feedback, and higher price, this is something only you can answer. Whatever you decide though, just be sure to speak with your doctor first.

    A great product

    I am 78 years old and have been taking Superbeets for 3 months. It gives me energy and the taste is not bad. You mix it in about 4 oz of cold water and drink it right down. I think it has sort of a fruity taste.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Dried Up

    The beet powder did give me an energy boost but the beet powder dried up and became hard as a rock and unusable. Perhaps because I didn't use it daily and it dried up.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
