Beets are a great food for athletes due to the anti-inflammatory properties of betaine. Beteain is known to help fight inflammation, protect internal organ, improve vascular risk factors, prevent chronic disease and improve performance. Beets may also help to improve stamina during both low and high-intensity exercise, another reason to include them in your diet if you’re highly active.
