Dr Mercola Products UK - Fermented Beets with Red Spinach - 60 Capsules.
In the world of performance – physical or mental – your nitric oxide function matters. Nitric oxide, or NO, is a gas that plays an important role in supporting normal circulatory functions within the cells that line your arteries and protecting your cells’ powerhouses, or mitochondria.* The NO your body produces helps widen the diameter of your blood vessels to allow a greater volume of blood to flow through, providing oxygen and nutrients to your brain and other organs. Healthy blood flow is essential for energy production and optimal performance throughout your entire body, including your muscles.

In recent years, whole food sources of nitrates, or the building blocks for NO production within your body, have been identified. While many athletes have turned to beet juice to promote healthy NO function for their performance, another nitric oxide-boosting whole food source has been discovered that offers more than 50 times the amount of nitrates as beet juice – red spinach!

Using Whole Foods to Support Healthy Blood Flow in Your Body and Mind”
Many people seek to avoid sodium nitrate — but what about the naturally occurring nitrates in vegetables? Might they hold the key to more energy, greater endurance and athletic performance, and improved blood flow to your brain and body?

Today, more and more people outside of the bodybuilding world are seeking ways to boost their daily performance by increasing their nitric oxide levels. They realise that high performance can often open the door to better health, increased happiness, and even greater prosperity.

So who can benefit most from higher levels of nitric oxide? Everyone from busy parents to weekend warriors to manual labour workers to office executives! If any of these things are on your "wish list," then you too may potentially benefit:

  • Have more energy for what you need to do and want to do
  • Get started with an exercise regimen and stick with it
  • Take your workout to a higher intensity level
  • Feel less winded and wiped out after exercising
  • Improve your health and well-being

So how can you get started boosting your nitric oxide levels? First, let’s take a look at where nitric oxide comes from and how it works in your body.

The Skinny on Nitrates – Why You May Not Have to Avoid These ‘Good Guys’
For many people, the word “nitrates” conjures up images of bacon, hot dogs, ham and other less-than-healthy cured meats. But did you know that certain vegetables like beets, spinach, and radishes also contain nitrates? 
Before you swear off ever eating these prized vegetables again, let me assure you – the nitrates in each are not the same.
Cured meats contain added nitrites, and because they can convert into potentially dangerous nitrosamines, especially if heated, I definitely recommend that you avoid eating them as much as possible. On the other hand, foods like beets and spinach contain naturally occurring nitrates. When consumed, the bacteria in your mouth convert these nitrates to nitrites, but because these vegetables are also rich in antioxidants, they don’t present a hazard to your health. Instead, these naturally occurring nitrates may offer potential health benefits. And all because of their conversion to that remarkable substance known as nitric oxide.*

Blood Flow: Crucial for Performance, Brain and Cellular Health, and a Healthy, Normal Blood Pressure
The nitrates in vegetables boost the production of nitric oxide, or NO, in the cells that line your arteries. These cells, your endothelial cells, line the entire interior surface of your circulatory system – from your heart to your distant capillaries. NO is a soluble gas that’s continually produced from the amino acid, L-arginine, inside your cells. This gas plays an important role in supporting normal endothelial function and protecting your cells’ powerhouses, or mitochondria.* Acting as a potent vasodilator, nitric oxide helps widen the diameter of your blood vessels to allow a greater volume of blood to flow through. And, as I’m sure you realize, healthy blood flow is what helps your body function at its best. Your blood carries oxygen and nutrients to your brain and other organs. It nourishes and oxygenizes your immune system and muscles, and helps keep your heart beating. It also carries away wastes and carbon dioxide. Healthy blood flow is essential for energy production and optimal performance throughout your entire body, including your brain and muscles.

6 Ways to Support Your Healthy Blood Flow
Certain conditions can cause your blood flow or circulation to become less-than-optimal, including:

  • Inadequate sun exposure is likely your largest risk factor for insufficient NO production. When sunlight touches your skin, nitric oxide is released into your bloodstream, which is vital for both skin health and mitochondrial health.
  • Stress can constrict your arteries, thicken your blood, and damage blood vessel linings
  • Excessive sitting slows blood circulation to your organs and tissues
  • Lack of exercise can cause blood in your pelvis and legs to pool and become stagnant
  • Smoking harms your blood cells and damages the structure and function of your heart and blood vessels

Since your daily performance matters – whether you’re an athlete or just want to function at your best, it makes good sense to do all you can to optimize your blood flow. You can support a healthy blood flow in your body and brain multiple ways:

  • Get regular sensible sun exposure on large areas of bare skin.
  • Don’t sit for extended periods – give yourself frequent standing breaks
  • Find ways to move more during your day along with regular exercise
  • Practice meditation, yoga, and deep breathing to calm your mind and relax tense muscles
  • Supplement with vitamins C and E, ginger and garlic (especially fermented forms), and L-arginine*
  • Increase your consumption of whole food sources of nitrates, like red beets and spinach

When you take simple measures like these, you’re likely to discover you have new-found energy and a clearer, more focused mind.* And you may even find the strength and motivation to get started on that exercise program you’ve been considering – or taking your current regimen to a higher level of intensity.* Most importantly, you’ll feel confident knowing you’re helping to nourish your heart, brain, and muscles with the oxygen and nutrients they may need.*

Using Whole Food Sources of Nitric Oxide to Support Exercise Performance
The recent discovery of the "nitrate-to-nitrite-to-nitric oxide (NO) pathway" has placed whole food sources of nitrates center stage for athletes and non-athletes alike. Researchers have found that nitrate-rich foods are associated with improved NO function and beneficial vascular effects. Consuming those foods can potentially help support:

  • Enhanced oxygen and nutrient delivery to active muscles, which may improve tolerance to physical exercise*
  • Increased plasma nitrate levels which may boost nitric oxide levels during exercise*
  • Improved muscle contractile efficiency*
  • Reduced amounts of oxygen needed to perform exercise
  • Optimal blood flow and oxygen to your muscles, brain, heart and other organs*
  • Healthy normal blood pressure levels*

All this suggests that you may find working out doesn’t take the same toll on your energy level as it used to. You may even be more excited to challenge yourself to exceed your workout goals! And that’s just your workout… Imagine how the rest of your life might improve if you felt more energetic? Because I’m so passionate about living life to its fullest, I’ve developed a shortcut to help you optimize your nitric oxide level.*

The Competitive Athlete’s Secret to Gaining an Edge
Endurance athletes swear by beets and beet juice. They believe it helps them work out longer, run further, and pedal harder before becoming fatigued. As we’ve already seen, beets and beetroot juice contain high levels of nitrates that convert to nitric oxide in your body. And that ultimately promotes blood flow and lowers the amount of oxygen that your muscles require for exercise.* These factors help enable athletes to move more efficiently and with greater power.

Recent research suggests that beetroot juice may provide even greater potential benefits during high intensity or fatiguing exercises. Researchers have found that his type of exercise favors the conversion of nitrite to nitric oxide in the muscle! They’ve also discovered that the consumption of beetroot juice before working out promotes the pliability of arterial walls.* This could be a significant benefit for you as you age and your blood vessels begin to lose some of their natural flexibility.*

Fermented Beets With Red Spinach – My ‘Go-to’ Nitric Oxide Supplement to Support Performance
I am always looking for ways to improve my workout endurance and results. And if they happen to support other aspects of my health, all the better! That’s why I decided to formulate a supplement that would capture the goodness of beets for promoting healthy nitric oxide function and optimal blood flow.* But while I was researching the subject, I came across two important points:

  1. By fermenting the beets, I could potentially increase their beneficial effects.
  2. There’s another nitric oxide-boosting whole food source that offers more than five times the amount of nitrate as regular beet powder and more than 50 times that in beetroot juice!

You can imagine how excited I was when I learned these two facts. Now I knew my formula – Fermented Beets with Red Spinach – could offer even more potential benefits. And it might even run circles around other currently available beet formulas for supporting performance!

How Fermentation Takes an Already Phenomenal Food to the Next Level
The process of fermenting foods dates back thousands of years. Humans discovered that this ancient practice could make foods more digestible and more flavorful. Now we know fermentation can change the nutritional makeup of foods, too:

  • Helps pre-digest ingredients
  • Increases levels of certain nutrients
  • Improves mineral bio-accessibility
  • Increases bioavailability of antioxidants
  • Eliminates undesirable anti-nutrients
  • Creates unique metabolites
  • Increases alkalizing effect on the body’s pH

The fermented whole food beet powder that comprises half of my Fermented Beets with Red Spinach formula is made using a precise, controlled process that interrupts the fermentation at its optimal point. Here’s what I especially appreciate about the fermentation process with beets… As you know, beets are very high in simple sugars: 36 percent to be exact. When they undergo fermentation that number very quickly plummets to zero percent! Fermentation effectively removes the simple carbs in beets, as their glucose content converts to alcohol, which then quickly evaporates. This is in stark contrast to some other non-fermented beet powders that may contain high levels of sugars, a potential concern for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.*

More Than 50 Times the Amount of Nitrate in Beet Juice? Start Your Engines…
Recently it was discovered that a special extract made from the leaves of red spinach (Amaranthus dubius), or as it’s commonly known – amaranth – could supply a standardized amount of nitrate – 9,000 mg of nitrate per 100 grams. This is amazing news for anyone seriously interested in promoting healthy nitric oxide function, as this standardization has not been achieved before now. The amount of nitrate in this red spinach extract is more than 50 times the amount found in beet juice and five times that in beetroot powder!
While, in my eyes, this doesn’t diminish the value of the fermented beet powder in my formula, the addition of red spinach extract simply creates one of the most powerful, complementary nitric oxide formulas ever!

The red spinach extract in my Fermented Beets with Red Spinach:

  • Is not genetically modified or bioengineered
  • Contains no oxalate – a potential concern when consuming large quantities of spinach, beet greens, and Swiss chard
  • Provides potassium
  • Contains no sugar
  • Contains no gluten

Red spinach or amaranthus extract isn’t new. It’s been traditionally used in Indian medicine and cooking. What is relatively new is the discovery of its enormous potential for supporting healthy nitric oxide function and blood flow.*
