Below we take an in-depth look at Superbeets to see how this health drink can benefit the consumer, and whether it is worth the cost.
Superbeets is a nitric oxide supplement that can be mixed with water, or even added into recipes, some of which are provided on the official product website. Nitric oxide can improve endurance and reduce fatigue, as well as improve cardiovascular health, but it should not take the place of prescribed medications, and it can lower blood pressure significantly. Consult your doctor if you are unsure if it is a suitable supplement for you.
The main side effect of Superbeets is that it can lower blood pressure levels significantly, making it unsuitable for anyone who already has low blood pressure, or for anyone who is taking blood pressure medication. It can also cause some stomach discomfort. The full list of potential side effects and health restrictions of whom cannot take this supplement are detailed below in the Side Effects section.
The price of Superbeets varies hugely depending upon the size of each purchase. There are significant discounts available for purchasing in bulk or for ordering on an auto-ship programme, where consumers receive a new delivery either monthly, or every three months. We do not recommend auto-ship programmes, as they are easy to forget about, and can cost the consumer far more in the long run. A single canister of Superbeets, with no discounts, costs $39.95 plus delivery charges, and contains 30 servings, enough for a month of continuous use.
Overall, we have a mixed opinion about Superbeets. We like that this beetroot supplement comes in both apple flavour (labelled as ‘original’) and black cherry flavour, making it ideal for people who dislike the taste of beetroot. The convenience of only having to take a single teaspoon of the powder, mixed into water, is also undeniable – it is definitely more convenient than eating 500 grams of beetroot every single day!
The product does come with a 90-day satisfaction guarantee, which covers both opened and unopened canisters but it is unclear how this applies to the auto-ship programme.
Nitric oxide does play a role in combating fatigue; however, if you are feeling fatigued without any clear explanation, a visit to your doctor could be beneficial, as fatigue is often a symptom of nutritional deficits, or even an underlying health condition.
Overall, if you want to take a nitric oxide supplement, Superbeets does seem to be a good supplement, but it will not solve every problem and should not be used in the place of medical advice.
Superbeets is a Nitric Oxide supplement that is thought to help promote Nitric Oxide production, healthy circulation, healthy blood pressure levels, and improved energy and stamina. A single serving contains the same amount of Nitric Oxide found in three whole beetroots, according to the manufacturers.
Superbeets is manufactured by a company called HumanN (previously known as Neogenis Laboratories). The company focuses solely on Nitric Oxide related supplements and Dr. Nathan Bryan, the company’s Chief Science Officer and co-founder, “has committed his life’s work to the field of N-O research”. The ‘Why HumanN’ section of the website briefly refers to the Nobel Prize that was awarded to researchers who linked N-O with cardiovascular health; we feel that it is not made clear enough that Dr. Bryan was not a part of the research team that won the Nobel Prize.
How to Take Superbeets
Mix one teaspoon with four ounces of water and enjoy it as a quick, refreshing drink. Each canister contains a one-month supply, or thirty servings. Make sure to store the canister in a cool, dry place and use within 45 days of opening.
HumanN can be contacted using the information provided on their official website. We have also included their address and phone number below, in the Money Back Guarantee section.
- Can lower blood pressure – not suitable for anyone who already has low blood pressure
- Specific dosing of nitrate per serving not detailed
Superbeets comes in two flavours, original (with natural apple flavouring) and natural black cherry. According to the manufacturers, one of the biggest advantages to Superbeets is that you can get all the benefits of beetroots, without having to eat them regularly, or drinking beetroot juice, which makes it ideal for anyone who dislikes the taste of beetroot.
What Does Superbeets Claim To Do?
According to the official website:
One teaspoon, or the recommended serving, has the nitric oxide equivalent of three whole beets, helping promote:
- Nitric oxide production
- Healthy circulation
- Healthy blood pressure levels
- Increased energy and stamina
Does Superbeets Work?
A single serving of Superbeets apparently contains the same Nitrate content as three beetroots. However, this is a very vague quantity, and it is difficult to tell how much this is in reality, especially comparing it to the recommended Nitrate serving. Examine.com suggests that 500 grams of beetroot would provide enough nitrate for a daily serving for a 150 lb person. 500 grams appears to be about three average sized beetroots; therefore, in theory, a serving of Superbeets does provide enough Nitrates for a 150 lb person.
There is clinical evidence that strongly suggests that Nitrates from Beetroot are used by the body for Nitric Oxide production, and there is significant evidence that nitric oxide plays numerous positive roles in the body, including combating fatigue and enhancing endurance.
In general, it does appear that Superbeets will work to increase Nitric Oxide levels in the body, which has numerous health benefits. For heavier consumers, a single serving may be insufficient, as the dosage is established using the consumer’s weight. Stick within the recommended daily serving unless your doctor instructs you to take a higher dose.

Does Superbeets Have Any Side Effects?
The potential side effects of Superbeets appear to be minimal, at least in healthy individuals. We found no mention of side effects developing in the customer reviews we found.
Because nitric oxide affects blood vessels, a decrease in blood pressure is a potential side effect. Symptoms associated with low blood pressure include headache, dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, vomiting and loss of balance. If you already have low blood pressure, consult your doctor before purchase.
Nitric Oxide supplements can also cause stomach discomfort, including nausea, stomach cramps and an increase in bowel movements. Again, we found no reports of these side effects in the customer reviews for Superbeets, but that does not necessarily mean that these side effects won’t occur at all.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. If you have an existing heart condition or abnormal blood pressure, please consult your healthcare professional before taking supplements to increase nitric oxide levels. Not suitable for anyone who has kidney or liver disease. Not suitable for anyone who has a bacterial infection. Not suitable for anyone who is taking blood-thinning medications, or anyone who has a bleeding disorder. Consult your doctor before purchase if you are unsure about the suitability of this or any other supplement for you.
Are There Any Customer Reviews For Superbeets?
There are numerous customer reviews for this product on the official Superbeets website. The majority of customer reviews are positive.
We noticed a change right away. No more sluggish days. We are much more alert and energetic. The taste isn’t too bad (black cherry) but we don’t like the smell.
I’ve not been satisfied with how this blends after your formula changed earlier this year (2016), just about the time you changed to HumanN. From what I can tell you added the fermented beet powder where the previous product version didn’t have it. Whatever changed, now I can’t fully dissolve the current blend and constantly get clumps of beet powder with each drink I make in plain water. I had just got the 3 pack because I really enjoyed how easy the previous version of product blended. Please tell me, has this clumping been realised by any other athletes who use Superbeets?
I have been drinking it every day, twice a day, since I purchased it and would definitely recommend it to anyone. I can totally feel the difference of taking it vs. not taking it.
After hearing Dana Loesch speak often of SUPER BEETS, I reached the decision to try it. Today, I enjoy a daily energy lift – ALL DAY LONG. Frankly, I was sceptical but was PROVEN wrong. I enjoy the taste and so easy to use with NO side effects; I truly recommend super bees to anyone who’s looking for a natural daily energiser that is healthy and delicious to drink.
On my second container and starting to feel the benefits!!! More energy!
I have been taking Super Beets for a short time, and it has made a big improvement to my health. I have been searching for a long time for a product that would actually deliver what it promises. There is no other product that has made such a great difference in my life. I would like to see my friends and family share the benefits of this amazing product. I especially like the black cherry flavour.
My husband and I have been taking Superbeets for a couple of months now. YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT EVERY DAY! We BOTH feel the difference. I have got my mother and stepmom to take Superbeets as well. More energy and just overall feeling better. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone.

Where Can I Buy Superbeets?
Superbeets can be purchased from Humann.com. There are numerous different purchasing options.
A single canister costs $39.95, plus delivery charges. There is also a buy 2, get one free option, which costs $79.90 for a total of 3 canisters. Finally, there is a buy 4 get 2 free option, which costs $149.90 for a total of 6 canisters. Delivery charges may apply.
There is also an auto-replenish scheme, which is just another term for an auto-ship programme. Customers can opt in to receive either a one-month supply at a time, or a three-month supply at a time. The one-month supply is a single canister, which is sent out every 30 days, and costs $34.95. The three-month supply consists of three canisters, which are sent out for delivery every 90 days, and costs $69.90, which is also charged every 90 days. Both auto-ship programmes have free delivery, and are significantly discounted compared to the one-time order options. However, in general we dislike auto-ship programmes. They can be easy to forget about, especially if choosing the three-month supply option, and, depending upon the individual company, they can be very difficult to cancel. HumanN, the company who manufacture Superbeets, state that their auto ship programme is “free to join and you can cancel at any time by contacting us at 1.855.636.4040”.
