Better than beets: AltRed is a 25% betalain extract made from red beets. By comparison, the typical beetroot supplement contains 1% or less betalains (betanins and betaxanthins). Our proprietary extraction technology increases the bioavailability of betalains by 1,000% which cannot be matched by consuming fresh beets, beet juices, or beetroot powders. AltRed is the only beetroot extract supplement to contain no sugar. AltRed contains no sugar, caffeine, or other added stimulants. We use non-GMO red beets sourced from U.S. farms.
Backed by science: AltRed Betalains have been studied at leading U.S. university sports performance labs and clinically proven to improve oxygen delivery to working muscles while raising your lactic acid threshold. It also helps you recover faster and get back to training by reducing exercise-induced muscle damage.
Safe and transparent: Every lot is third-party tested for substances prohibited in sport and to ensure all claims and ingredient levels listed on the label are accurate. AltRed is certified by both Informed Sport and NSF Certified for Sport.

We have conducted three gold-standard clinical studies that prove positive effects for endurance athletes taking AltRed. Gold standard studies are double-blind, crossover, placebo-controlled, and randomized. Additional studies are in the works and will be added as they are published.
Highlights from studies:
- 3.5% more watts
- 3% faster times
- 15% reduction in perceived exertion
- 2.5% more distance
- 5.4% increased exercise efficiency
- 9% reduction in exercise-induced muscle damage
- 14% less lactate acid production
Betalain-Rich Concentrate Supplementation Improves Exercise Performance and Recovery in Competitive Triathletes
Another study at University of California, Davis conducted on triathletes showed that they performed an average of 3% faster in a 5K recovery time trial performed 24 hours after completing a 10K time trial when they used AltRed. The triathletes also experienced an average 9% reduction in a key muscle damage indicator known as creatine kinase. Read full study
Effect of 1-Week Betalain-Rich Beetroot Concentrate Supplementation on Cycling Performance and Select Physiological Parameters
Researchers at Auburn University conducted a study on cyclists that showed they produced an average watt increase of 3.5% during a 30-minute functional threshold power test when they used AltRed. Cyclists also increased cycling efficiency by an average of 5.4%. Read full study
Betalain-Rich Concentrate Supplementation Improves Exercise Performance in Competitive Runners
Researchers at University of California, Davis conducted a study on distance runners and showed that the runners performed an average of 3% faster in a 5K time trial when they used AltRed. The runners also saw an average 14% reduction in lactate acid levels and 15% reduction in perceived exertion. Read full study
