Superbeets is marketed as a superfood, a supplement claimed to boost circulation, and subsequently improve energy levels and stamina. It is a highly concentrated formulation of beets, rich in dietary nutrients and nitrites. Superbeets utilizes a patented drying process, in order to retain the integrity of the nitrites and nutrients in the beet.
The nitrites are converted by your body into nitric oxide, which has a plethora of health benefits, including supporting healthy blood pressure levels, increased energy levels, as well as improving circulation. Superbeets is available in two flavors, black cherry and apple. After starting the supplement months ago, and with successful results and restored energy levels, I decided to provide a review for Superbeets to provide some background, key pros and cons to consider prior to purchase, as well as any potential side effects involved.
- That it is a great source of nitrates that are converted into nitric oxide by your body
- That it will help maintain health blood pressure levels
- That it improves overall circulation
- That it increases your stamina and energy levels
- That it contains both electrolytes and antioxidants
How does this SuperFood Work?
A single teaspoon of SuperBeets Superfood is the equivalent of three whole beets in nitrous oxide content, which support the aforementioned health benefits, including increased circulation, energy, and stamina. Multiple studies claim that Superbeets can even support better physical performance, and subsequently even further benefits with continual use.

How do you use SuperBeets?
Superbeets has a high degree of ease-of-use, and all you have to do is mix a single scoop of the powder with approximately 4 ounces of water, and then shake or stir until the powder is completely liquefied. It’s ready to drink immediately after it liquifies. It’s important to denote that the taste is a bit sour, and is one that takes some getting used to. For best results, you should drink Superbeets in the afternoon for a boost of energy. WARNING: as a word of caution, do not use more than two scoops of Superbeets within a 24 hour period. Do not drink if you are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant, or nursing.
Potential Side Effects
Every supplement and OTC product has the potential to cause side effects. Superbeets taken as a supplement can potentially cause gas, nausea, upset stomach, bloating, and cramping. It’s also important to be aware that Beeturia (red colored urine) are a common side effect when using the supplement. This means that your urine will turn red, and you may also find that your stool turn red, but it is nothing to be alarmed by, and can be solely attributed to the color of beets themselves.
My Thoughts on SuperBeets
I have been taking Superbeets continually for approximately 3 months now, and I do make it a point to take it right after my lunch, this way I take it every day at the same time and it does provide a nice boost in energy levels. I experienced Beeturia as a side effect, so again, take caution that urine will turn red, and to reiterate, this is no cause for concern or alarm.
If I didn’t have any background or warning I likely would have called my doctor immediately, and been quite anxious to say the least. I’ve noticed a vast improvement in energy levels since I started using Superbeets. Effects were certainly not immediate, but I felt better over time with continual daily use. As for any other potential side effects, I did not experience any upset stomach, nausea, bloating, or cramping. Although, the taste really requires improvement, you may enjoy it if you like beets with a twist of apple or black cherry, but if you dislike the taste you can rest easy, as at only 4 ounces, it can be taken quickly in shot-form.
Ultimately, I would recommend this supplement to anyone seeking a boost of energy during lagging afternoon hours, but you will have to be consistent on taking it in order to get the full benefits of this SuperBeets Powder. If you’re in search of a great supplement that is not going to let you down in terms of benefits with continual use, then go with the Superbeets!
