I never felt any burning even with 3 tabs with meals. I tapered it down, thinking I was ‘cured’.
got a quick question, I read your post about finding out acid level in stomach wether low or too much. I have been suffering gastritis for past 5 years and been put on several acid reducer medication by my GI Doc. but with no luck. my question to you is can i have low stomach acid and can low acid cause gastritis. in my case I don’t have H.Pylori bacteria, I had done my upper Endoscopy year ago and doc.
Wylie et al. (2013) investigated the influence of ~250mg, ~520mg and ~1,050mg of ingested nitrate in beetroot juice (Beet It Organic Shots) and also the ‘dose-response’ relationship between acute nitrate ingestion and exercise performance. An amount of ~250mg of nitrate did not significantly improve exercise performance in the study by Wylie et al. (2013). In contrast, ~520mg and ~1,050mg nitrate doses both resulted in improved exercise performance, but ~1,050mg was no more effective than ~520mg of nitrate. These results indicate that there may be a ‘threshold’ amount of nitrate required to be ingested for exercise performance benefits to be obtained.
Thanks for any help and direction on this. Hi Courteny – It could still be. Go ahead and perform the baking soda test for 3 mornings in a row to get a better judgement. You can also perform the HCL challenge test, as this is more accurate. It does sound like you’re suffering from low stomach acid, so we’d suggest continuing to test it out.
It is all related on how alkalizing is the drink you are having. I used squized lemons today together my beets juice for the first time and I had redish urine for the first time.
Something like 20% longer worktime at sea level and 45% longer at altitude. Beet It Sport shots are certainly an acquired taste.
Just experienced this. My urine were pinkish/redish after drinking beetroots juice. I came and look for answers and handed up here. After reading this I am pretty sure is because I squeezed 1 full lemon inside the beet juice making the acid in the stomac less effective.
I started having digestive issues shortly after age 25 and I’m now 31. Never realized that low stomach acid was one of the culprits, but after testing myself and finding my dosage at four 650mg capsules, I’m feeling much much better after meals.
Think you’re eating properly? Put your body to the beet test
Fermented vegetables – such as kimchi, sauerkraut, and pickles – can naturally improve your stomach acid levels. Fermented vegetables and foods have probiotic effects that can improve digestion, fight harmful bacteria and reduce inflammation from low stomach acid. A balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables can also increase your stomach acid levels.
