About the SiS Performance Nitrate Shot
Performance Nitrate Shot delivers 500mg nitrates in a 60ml shot, sourced from Rhubarb Juice Concentrate and Amaranthus Leaf Extract. These unique sources of nitrates provide a superior taste profile and deliver a higher nitrate dose compared to anything else on the market. Performance Nitrate Shot can contribute to nitrate loading in the 1-2 days leading into an endurance event, taking 1000mg nitrates on these days.
- • 500mg Nitrates
- • Nitrates sourced from Rhubarb Juice Concentrate and Amaranthus Leaf Extract
- • Contributes to nitrate loading
- • Reduced oxygen cost of exercise
- • Improved exercise efficiency
- • Informed Sport tested
Drink 1-2 Performance Nitrate Shots per day as part of a nitrate loading protocol in the 1-3 days prior to an event, consuming 1g total nitrates per day on these days.
Performance Nitrate Shots can also be used as a pre-event shot, taken 2-3 hours before the start time.
Shake before use. Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight and out of reach of children. Food Supplements should not be used as a substitute for a balanced diet.
The determinants of performance in endurance sports can be categorised as:
- Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max¬)
- Lactate threshold (the point at which blood lactate increases above baseline levels)
- Efficiency or economy (the oxygen required to produce a given running speed or cycling power output)
In populations with similar performance characteristics (VO2 max and lactate threshold), efficiency is a better predictor of performance. Essentially, those who can expand less energy and use less oxygen at higher workloads are likely to perform better.
Supplementing with sport nutrition products rich in nitrates can have a direct impact on efficiency and as a result improve performance.
