One cup (80g) of sliced beets has about 1.88 mmol of nitrate. So to get your daily nitrates requirement, you would have to consume over two cups of sliced beets. The athletes in the studies I referenced consumed the equivalent of twice that amount of beets, or FOUR cups, ninety minutes before exercise.

  1. I am not a fan of beets but always wished I liked them more- your beet juice shot with ginger is such a smart idea- the ginger will overpower the beet flavor! Thank you!
