Many athletes are looking to support the correct fuel and training regimens even further with dietary supplementation to enhance their performance.
Nitrates and beet juice supplements have taken the sports nutrition world by storm – and for good reason. Listen as Director of Science Communications David Despain, M.S., dives into some of the latest studies involving nitrates and explains how they work in the body to enhance performance and decision making.
