With all this hype about beetroot, why are people talking about SuperBeets? We cut through the hype and focused on the ingredients, side effects, and clinical research. Furthermore, we tackled hundreds of customer experiences and comments over the last few weeks. Then, we summarized and refined it all give you the info you need.

SuperBeets Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Leptigen.

What is SuperBeets?

First off, SuperBeets is a nitric oxide booster. It contains non-GMO beetroot powder, natural apple flavor, malic acid, and stevia. [1] Put one scoop in water and drink once per day. The makers say to look for improved energy and a change in blood pressure. Let’s see.

Humann (previously known as Neogenis Labs), the people behind SuperBeets, has been around since 2011. The official website sells the product, as well as some third-party retailers. We like that it contains natural ingredients and we found favorable customer comments, but read on…

Price – “Breaking the Bank?”

Our first concern with SuperBeets ingredients is the high price. “You pay for quality and effectiveness,” said our Research Editor. “But if a company charges you more than expected (or it’s worth), is the product really a value?”

“They’re charging $150 for beet juice, that’s too much” said a customer. [2]

“Seems a bit pricey, considering it only lasts for less than two weeks,” stated another.

On the other hand, there are some dieters that didn’t have concerns with the cost of SuperBeets.

“If I’m getting 3 beets in every shot of Superbeet juice then I can’t match that with fresh beets for the price,” commented a user.

SuperBeets Side Effects – “But, It’s Just Beets?”

Customer complaints about SuperBeets side effects were a bit concerning; we have to say. “I tried them for over a week as directed, and immediately my sleep became restless,” said a dieter. [3]

“The regularity I had enjoyed was interrupted. I just couldn’t go to the bathroom,” said a user.

“I tried to drink it, but my stomach began to cramp up, so I had to stop,” reported another. [4]

While side effects were mentioned by some users, we found others did have the same experiences. [5]

“Been taking Superbeets for 3 months. It gives me energy, without the side effects and the taste is not bad,” commented a customer.

We’ve done the research and found that if something is concerning to customers, like side effects, the chances of long-term success are limited. If SuperBeets does cause adverse reactions, this could kill the deal.

The Science – “Any Evidence of Weight-Loss?”

There is quite a bit of clinical research supporting beet juice and extract intake in humans. (This is not to say there’s the same amount on Superbeets) Benefits may include fighting cancer [6] improved muscle contraction, improved endurance, lower blood pressure and improved brain health. However, not a single study we located mentioned anything about weight-loss, appetite or metabolism. Here at DietSpotlight, we want to see solid science backing a supplement. If there’s none, we tend to raise the red flag. [7]

The Bottom Line – Does SuperBeets Work?

Are you heading out for a tub of SuperBeets? Well, we like that we found some favorable customer comments and that it uses natural ingredients, but we’re skeptical about it because there’s just no research to support a connection to weight-loss. We’re also hesitant because of reports of side effects and the high price. [8]

If you’re looking for an energy boost or weight-loss support, we suggest a formula with clinically-tested ingredients, dieters sharing real results and a price that customers can afford.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. The formula contains clinically-tested ingredients shown to help accelerate metabolism, curb hunger and improve fat loss. We had no trouble finding reviews and testimonials from people who’ve tried it (and they’re pretty amazing.)

Plus, the company behind Leptigen is offering customers a Special Trial Offer, an important sign of confidence in their supplement.

SuperBeets User Tips:

Over the years, we’ve noticed SuperBeets users are more than willing to offer advice to other consumers. Out of the thousands of comments and reviews available, these are some of the most useful tips we found.

 

“You mix it in about 4 oz of cold water and drink it right down. I think it has sort of a fruity taste.” Michelle

 

“The beet powder did give me an energy boost but the beet powder dried up and became hard as a rock and unusable. Perhaps because I didn’t use it daily and it dried up.” Devon

 

“Drinking it by itself it tastes awful. I found if I mix it with eight ounces of cold water, fruit fusion, creatine, and Metamucil it’s not as bad.” Kam

 

“I add it to my magic bullet drink– kale, spinach, banana, and blue berries” Joseph

SuperBeets Scientific Abstracts:

Stevia Leaf Extract

The effects of preloads containing stevia on food intake, postprandial glucose, and insulin levels, and satiety we tested on healthy and obese participants from the age of 18 to 50 years old. In these separate food tests, they received preloads consisting of stevia (290 kcal), sucrose (493 kcal), or aspartame (290 kcal) before lunch and dinner. Hunger and satisfaction levels were reported before and after meals, every hour. Subjects had provided blood samples directly before and twenty minutes following the lunch preload. Notwithstanding the caloric difference (290 vs. 493 kcals) in preloads, the individuals didn’t compensate by consuming more at lunch and dinner when given stevia as opposed to sucrose in preloads. (MD in food consumption throughout the day between stevia and sucrose = 301 kcal, p < .01; aspartame = 330 kcal, p < .01). Stevia preloads greatly reduced postprandial glucose levels as opposed to the sucrose preloads (p<.01), as well as postprandial insulin levels versus the aspartame and sucrose preloads (p < .05). [1]

A recent study published by Nutrition Today explains stevia’s use in foods and beverages, assisting with energy reduction. Stevia is a natural sweetener which is helping to increase choices for reduced sugar and energy food and drinks. Stevia exhibits great results and is a promising tool for reducing energy intakes, which could cause the reduction and the prevention of obesity. [2]

Non-GMO Beetroot Powder

Beetroot contains high quantities of biologically active ingredients including inorganic nitrate and betalains. The amounts were determined using a variety of compounds (sugars, betalains, oxalic acid, phenolic acids, and minerals) in juice containing seven distinct beetroot varieties. Vast differences were discovered between the selections for some substances (like nitrate), as the others exhibited only minor variations (specific sugars and minerals). Altogether, the betalain content was found to be between 0.8 and 1.3 g/L fresh juice (approximately 60% betacyanins and 40% betaxanthins) which made up 70 to 100% of the phenolics content. Other phenolics were hydroxycinnamic acids, which made up 2.6% of the phenolics. Sugars were similar, with the average being 7.7%, consisting of 95% sucrose. Also, other commercial juices were tested for their nitrate content, as the metabolic product nitric oxide has been known to deliver cardiovascular benefits. A broad range of nitrate levels has been found, ranging from 0.01 to 2.4 g/L. This is necessary for the development and production of beetroot juice supplements with great success. [3]

SuperBeets Side Effects:

When you think of natural supplements you need to keep in mind that they are not always side effect-free. There is a possibility for an adverse reaction with any formula. While Superbeets issues are rather rare, some individuals may encounter a negative experience.

Stomach Ache

Symptoms are cramping, sharp, or dull pain in the stomach or abdomen area. Often accompanied with bloating, and sometimes gas, stomach aches can prove to be unpleasant. Severe pain in the abdomen area can be much more serious.

What causes stomach aches?

Stomach aches and abdominal pain have many sources. They can range anywhere from parasites, infections, and disease to poor eating habits, medications, and stress. Infections in the throat can send bacteria into the digestive tract, also causing pain. [1] Inflammation or irritation to any organ in the body can cause stomach aches.

Muscle Cramp

Muscle cramps (commonly called a charley horse) are the sudden and involuntary contractions of one or more muscles in the body – often the calf. Muscle cramps can affect any muscle under your voluntary control, from a small area of the body to a group. Pain can range from minimal to severe, sometimes lasting fifteen minutes or longer.

What causes a muscle cramp?

A compression of nerves in the spine could cause cramping, as well as calcium (hypocalcemia), potassium (hypokalemia), or magnesium (hypomagnesemia) deficiencies. Dehydration plays a common role, as well as poor blood circulation.

Diarrhea

Diarrhea is the frequent release of loose or liquid bowels. This condition can last up to three days or more, sometimes resulting in dehydration from loss of liquids.

What causes diarrhea?

Intestinal infections, parasites, and other bacteria are common causes of diarrhea. Consumption of food with certain parasites or contaminated drinking water can also play a part, as well as certain medications.  Diarrhea can occur when there is an increased amount of fluid being secreted into the intestine or a reduced absorption of fluid.

Vomiting

Vomiting is a result of a triggered emetic reflex which causes the contents of the stomach to forcefully exit through the mouth. There is a vast array of endogenous and exogenous factors that could trigger the emetic reflex. [2]

What causes vomiting?

Due to the wide variety of factors that can trigger the emetic reflex, it’s often difficult to pinpoint a direct cause. Migraines, stomach infections, alcohol consumption, and overeating can cause vomiting. In addition, a blow to the head could lead to an increase in pressure on the brain and brain stem. This can cause a variety of neurological symptoms including nausea and vomiting.

Superbeets side effects are quite rare, but there have been reports of vomiting, muscle cramps, diarrhea, among others. If you are under 18, have a pre-existing medical condition, pregnant or nursing, or currently taking medications, talking with a doctor is always a good idea when it comes to adding supplements to your daily routine.

 

 

Superbeets is a super food that is used to improve bodily functions. Side effects don’t always happen, unfortunately, we did find reports of a few during our research.

 

“Perhaps the worst part of it was having to run to the bathroom about 3 minutes after drinking my first shot. Not just once but again and again, about 12 times a day.” Jason

 

“I tried them for over a week as directed, and immediately my sleep became restless even though I took my dosage in the morning.” Tricia

 

“What it ‘does’ do, is give you a real bad stomach ache and an unpleasant trip to the toilet.” Justin

 

“Approx. 15 minutes after drinking one shot mixed with 6oz of water, stomach became upset and nauseous.” Charlie

 

“After a week, it was causing muscle cramps in my legs and I stopped using it.” Melvin

 

“Didn’t really notice any impact other than a slight headache.” Patrick

 

“It made me vomit. Literally, 30 min after drinking it, it all came back up.” Silah

 

“First day…diarrhea…2nd and third days, No energy increase while at the gym.” Mike

 

“Made me sick.” Julian

After years of research, we’ve found that side effects are an issue all too often. Our suggestion is to find a product with strong customer support and amazing reviews, like Leptigen.

Superbeets is a "superfood" that's supposed to boost nitric oxide levels. Claimed benefits, which we've read on other weight loss supplements reviews about Superbeets, include blood pressure support and increases in stamina and energy. Each serving is equivalent to three beets. It supplies 15 calories, 1g of protein and 4g of carbohydrates (3g of sugar). It doesn't look like any research has been completed on this product.

I tried super beets for a week and there was no boost in energy and it tastes off. Actually the product emergen-C is a much better product for energy. Im gonna test that money back guarantee.

What about sugar?? How much sugar in SuperBeets. I’m sure its a lot. Can diabetics have it?

Hi Elizabeth. As far as the amount of sugar in SuperBeets, the label states that it contains 3g of sugar per serving. Can diabetics take SuperBeets? This is best answered by your doctor.

If you like beets it probably tastes great. Beets taste like dirt to me, therefore this is difficult to get down.

Ive been drinking supper beets now for about 2 weeks. Almost immediately I felt a difference. I have more energy, breathe better and have been asked by others what I’m doing differently because I look better. SupperBeets has improved my life, thank you!

how are superbeets for type 2 diabetes?

Hi Margaret! Because of possible interactions, please make sure to consult with your physician before taking this product.

Your comparison list does not include BioTrust LeptiBurn. I would like to know how Leptigen compares to this product. They have specific weight loss goals associated with so many bottles of Leptiburn.

Hi Mark. We compared Leptiburn to Leptigen – you just have to head over to the Leptiburn review. Hope that helps.

My husband and i started taking Superbeets and immediately saw the change in our blood pressure. While taking it daily my husband didn’t have a problem with it but my head started hurting real bad almost like real bad migraines. My dr sad the Nitric Oxide was the cause. He didn’t say for me not to take it just not everyday. I have also experience the down effect instead of the energy. But my husband continue to take it everyday and love it.

My husband is on a low potassium diet due to kidney problems. He can not eat regular beets anymore. what is the contend of potassium in the Super Beet drink?

Hi Linda! For detailed product instructions and ingredients, please refer to the SuperBeets official website or our Ingredient tab for more information.

Beet VO2 Max is better. You get twice as much in a jar at half the price of ONE jar of Super beets.

Will superbeets help my diabetes.

Hi Joe. Why not take a copy of the SuperBeets ingredients to your doctor? That’s the safest way to get your answer.

This is just another product to take your money. It only works if you believe in your mind it works. Save your money and don’t throw it away on this.

A question please. I have diabetes. Will superbeets affect my diabetes? Please email me the answer.

Hi Gladys. The only person who can answer that question is your physician. You can take a copy of the ingredients to him/her to ensure there are no medical issues.

I am on my second container of Super Beets. By the way it’s only $35.00 for a months supply not the price mentioned in the article. I purchased the black cherry flavor and it tastes great. I take it for blood pressure, I had not heard about it’s use as a weight loss supplement. I like it and will continue to use it.

Nancy, where did you get it for $35?

I noticed stomache pains but does lower my blood pressure. Do I need to take an iron if I take beet juice powder

Hey Wendy. Whether or not you need to take an iron supplement is something you’ll have to talk to your doctor about.

Complete waste of time & money. Used the product for two months with absolutely no results.

After having a triple bypass I had to get on 2 different blood pressure meds just to keep everything within range. We didn’t want anything blowing out a stitch in 6 sets of stitches. I kept it within range but always a struggle. After using SuperBeets my blood pressure now averages 114/70. And it tastes just fine to boot. The first thing I do every single morning.

Don….did your doctor give you the ok to use this stuff ? …

Don’t believe the hype. It doesn’t taste good and it DOESN’T deliver the promises. Don’t buy it.

Love the product, but the sales people are truly relentless and continue to call to the point of harassing. When I want to buy it again I will but the sales people have completely turned me off on wanting to buy the product.

Job offers and marketing With Global Link

I’m 66 and have been having high blood pressure issues. My doctor doubled my blood pressure medication but my blood pressure was still running around 165/95. After taking Super Beets for a week, with my meds, my blood pressure has returned to a more normal range of 130/86. The active ingrediant is natural nitric oxide. For research on beet root juice, google articles and research on its use for controlling high blood pressure.

I like the stuff. I did have problems with the powder turning hard as a rock. It happen to both canisters. I call and complained and they didn’t want to replace them…I’m pretty sure it’s happened before and they now about it. It expires on 10/17.

I bought a different brand just to try beets in general. They package the powder in a sc ip lock package with 2 pieces of material that looks like paper that keeps it from absorbing humidity. The cost is kow & its not flavored. They recommend 1 tablespoon in a smoothie daily with fruit. Day 1 i had more energy. We will see.

I too had that problem at first. but if you will place the container in the fridge it will not do that…
By the way, I like the stuff……….

Make sure to keep that little “moisture absorber thingy” haha in the canister, cuz if u take THAT out, the powder does get hard. Also keep the lid on real tight. I use this product and i like it too smile
