BeetElite is a beet root extract product from the Human-n brand that has become widely popular among endurance athletes over the past few years. Dietary nitrates and nitrites are the active ingredients in the supplemental drink mix. Although there is research cited on the company's website, it is limited to one study that conducted a HIIT test on stationary bikes. To further test the company's claims on improved endurance and began proving its effectiveness with running, we created a treadmill test. Our testing is intended to supplement other testing that has been done and provide a basis for future tests to build from. This supplement can be tested over a huge array of different activities and in different populations.
