Here’s another great Texas company that believes in healthy living! Harness the power of beets to improve your athletic performance! BeetElite concentrated beet crystals help you achieve peak performance in your training regimen and in competition. Each packet delivers the nitric oxide boosting goodness of six organic beet roots or one liter of organic beet juice, in the most convenient form possible - a shot. Use it 30 minutes before a workout or competition, and you’ll feel the difference! BeetElite NeoShot® is a pre-workout “shot” that helps your body make more nitric oxide, which during exercise helps your body extend endurance, helps your body improve intensity levels, dilates blood vessels to help deliver more oxygen and nutrients and increases efficiency of oxygen utilization.
