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?

How Much Does SuperBeets Cost?

SuperBeets is available in regular or new Black Cherry Flavors, and is priced as follows:

  • 1 Canister: $39.95
  • 3 Canisters: $79.90
  • 6 Canisters: $149.90

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.

    Didn't work for me

    I thought I would give it a try, but it really did nothing, and I couldn't get past the taste.

    Low and behold, I had a pending charge on my account for another canister. I called them and apparently when ordering one, I signed up for monthly refills. Be careful when you navigate the website and take notice of the fine print. I canceled the monthly renewal and tried to cancel the second refill. They said no because it had already shipped. I didn't get notice of shipment until the next day, despite being told it already shipped.

    It was a bad experience all around and I have to pay for return shipping to get a refund.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    My SuperBeets experience

    • Pennsylvania,
    • Feb 16, 2017

    Today is exactly 3 and 1/2 weeks since I started taking SuperBeets and 5 and 1/2 weeks since I started my healthy eating diet and one-hour-a-day exercise program. My blood pressure taken at my doctor's office was 150/90 a month ago, and I'm on blood pressure medication. I just had it taken three days ago, and it's now 124/82.

    What I can tell you about SuperBeets is that I feel it is helping me achieve better overall health as I can notice an increase in my endurance during exercising, and today I added 10 minutes to my normal one-hour workout and didn't feel any more fatigued than usual.

    I have lost a total of 17 lbs since 1/5/17 through diet and exercise, but I feel that SuperBeets has given my more energy to get me through my workout. I just purchased a 3-month supply and plan on sticking to my routine, as I am happy with my results.

    I'm a 53-year-old male, 5' 9" and weigh 150lbs. I lost my spare tire around my waist and look and feel much better. I don't feel that SuperBeets alone would have made much of a difference, but with exercise and eating right, it all comes together. I'm hoping that eventually I can get off of my prescription blood pressure medication and control my blood pressure naturally.

    I would recommend taking SuperBeets daily. I hope this review helps someone else improve their health!

    Great stuff

    I'm 76 years old and do a lot of bike riding and swimming. As I get older, the need for better cardio increases. I've used beet juicing to help in the past, but have gone to SuperBeets because it's easier to use. I've found that it helps give me the extra energy and cardio help I need to keep up with the kids (who are between the ages of 40-60) on long rides.

    I've been using this product for about a year and recommend it for those who need the extra boost. One needs to keep the moisture packet in the container, so it doesn't harden up.

    Doesn't work!

    • Greenwich, CT,
    • Feb 4, 2017

    My husband and I both tried SuperBeets, and we decided not to tell each other what we were feeling from the first week. We truly hoped for more energy. We are in our 50s.

    I can honestly say that neither one of us felt any different. We both have high blood pressure and it did nothing to change that; he's on meds and I'm not because mine is not as high as his. He also has hypothyroid. I have renal artery stenosis, so I was hoping for a nitrous oxide boost. The fatigue and exhaustion we felt before SuperBeets did not vanish. We were as exhausted as ever and got no relief. Additionally, I gained 3 lbs!

    It was a total waste of money, and I don't like being scammed or putting needless ingredients in my body. As a side note, I'm not sure if these freeze-dried supplements work in general. I have friends who tried powdered collagen that didn't work, and I bought the powdered bone broth. There was no change in how I felt. If I felt worse with any of these, I'd say perhaps it was a detox or Herx effect (which is a good thing), but I felt nothing.

    However, I use liquid bone broth and don't feel anything with that either. I also don't feel any different with fresh beets or pickled beets either, so perhaps it's just me.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Not worth the $

    Hi. I regularly juice beets or purchase beet juice from a store. I thought this would be a good product to use as when I don't juice.

    I'd say that the high sugar carb content from this powdered alone is really just not worth it. Of course, if you go from crappy eating to all of a sudden getting a boost of a super veggie in your body, anyone will feel better. Perhaps it's the placebo for spending the high amount of money?

    This product would be good for someone older, elderly, invalid, or simply someone that cannot step out to get juice or to juice. But then there are other alternative powders that are less expensive.

    Don't be fooled by the slick trick and sly marketing, this just isn't worth the price, and I'm a health and wellness educator and know a thing or two about supplements and health. Best to get a good high-grade, non-GMO juice powder that includes a wide range of things from spilling to whole fruits and veggies (including beets) in it for overall health.

    It's a balance thing, too many nitrates are going to deplete somewhere else. Stay balanced and healthy! Good luck.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Tastes and smells like beets, not "black cherry" as advertised

    I have taken it for about two weeks, and I don't experience the promised effect at all, let alone in the advertised "20 minutes - guaranteed".

    The worst thing is the smell and taste. It is sold as "black cherry" flavor, but that is bunk. It smells and tastes like beets, which I don't like and which is why I purchased SuperBeets as I won't eat beets, but have believed beets have nutritional value. I got three containers of it and will either send them back or see if someone I know wants them.

    I am a 66-year-old, very healthy non-drinker, non-smoker, 125-pound active woman who is already high energy, so perhaps I actually didn't have a need for this supposed energy-enhancer, but that is irrelevant as the taste gags me.
