James White Drinks
Beet It concentrated organic beetroot shots – the natural way to boost Nitric Oxide (NO) in the blood stream. Research at William Harvey Research Institute and Exeter University using Beet It beetroot juice has demonstrated the dramatic impact beetroot juice can have on lowering blood pressure and improve stamina levels and enhance oxygen usage efficiency. These benefits arise directly from raised Nitric Oxide levels derived from the dietary nitrate found naturally in Beetroots. The 7cl concentrated stamina shots deliver a 4mMol of dietary nitrate, the equivalent of a 25cl Beetroot juice and are a quick, easy way to consume this optimum daily dose.
UK-based Mycology Reseach Laboratories (MRL) was founded in 1997 and markets mushroom nutrition products to health care professionals in the UK, US and Japan. MRL utilises proprietary production technology to cultivate the biomass of selected strains of mushrooms in California. The strains have been selected for their overall bioactivity and for their stability (purity). The cultivation process is in accordance with both the California Organic Food Act of 1990 and the EU organic standards. These mushroom nutrition products are not extracts, but instead contain both the mycelium and primordia (young fruitbody) of the mushroom cultivated into a biomass on an edible, sterile (autoclaved substrate). The cultivation process ensures that the biomass is free from contamination by other fungi or bacteria and that heavy metals (pesticides) are not present. Following cultivation, the biomass is dried, powdered and tableted to food grade Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards.
