MCTs are a type of healthy fat that contain 6-12 carbon atoms, which provide an instant source of energy as they are easily converted into ketones, an excellent mitochondrial fuel source. MCTs are leading the way as a preferred source of energy production in the body, when compared to glucose, since ketones produce far less reactive oxygen species (ROS) when they are metabolized.
Beetroots are known to contain high levels of inorganic nitrate (NO3−) and its intake has proved effective at increasing blood nitric oxide (NO) concentrations. Given the effects of NO in promoting vasodilation and blood flow with beneficial impacts on muscle contraction, several studies have detected an ergogenic effect of beetroot supplementation on exercise efforts with high oxidative energy metabolism demands.
MCT Beet-216 combines a fuel source, MCT, with a source of dietary nitrates, Beetroot extract, to provide a combination of energy & endurance to the consumer.
