Many of the world’s healthiest substances are found in nature – so it’s no surprise that humanity has always tried to find the most efficient way of getting nature’s bounty. SuperBeets is a product line that continues this storied tradition, and here in our Ultimate Review of Superbeets, we’re going to dive in-depth into what it is, how it’s claimed to work, and how effective people have found it to be.

What Is SuperBeets?

SuperBeets is a nutritional supplement consisting primarily of fermented and unfermented beet juice powder, along with a few other ingredients (mostly fairly mild) for flavor and stability. The manufacturer recommends mixing 5g (about one rounded teaspoon) with 4-6 ounces of cold water, to be drunk immediately.This product is currently available in two flavors (Original and Black Cherry), and normally retails for $39.95 for a 30 serving (150g) container. The official website (humann.com) offers a discount for bulk purchases.

SuperBeets are also available in 10-count individual packages that usually retail for $14.95. This isn’t as cost-effective as buying them in bulk, although they are easier to use. Either way, SuperBeets are relatively expensive for a beet-based product, despite the narrowness of their focus (see below).

What Does SuperBeets Do?

The manufacturer claims that SuperBeets promote the production of Nitric Oxide (NO), support healthy circulation, support healthy blood pressure levels, and promote natural energy and stamina. Note that none of these are fixed claims – they “promote” and “support”, but do not directly cause these things.

HumanN also claims that you’ll get the Nitric Oxide equivalent of three beets in each serving, provided by tested, non-GMO crops.

It’s worth noting that SuperBeets does not claim to be the same as actually eating three beets and getting the full nutritional value of each of them. It is only about providing Nitric Oxide, and to understand its value as a product, we need to talk about what Nitric Oxide is.

The short version is that Nitric Oxide is one of the most important chemicals in the human body. In fact, the discovery of its importance in the cardiovascular system was enough to earn a Nobel Prize in 1998. As a signaling molecule, Nitric Oxide tells the body’s sells what to do and helps regulate the size of blood vessels and overall blood pressure.

It’s especially important for smooth muscle, which is found in the gastrointestinal tract and erectile tissue.

Nitric Oxide should not be confused with the similarly-named Nitrous Oxide (aka laughing gas, a popular anesthetic).

Maintaining a healthy level of Nitric Oxide is important for overall well-being, so a supplement capable of delivering it offers real value to people who don’t normally get enough in their diet.

What Are Beets Good For?

Beets are a sweet, healthy vegetable – in fact, they’re one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat. In their unprocessed form, beets help to lower blood pressure, boost stamina, fight inflammation, provide vitamins and minerals, detoxify the body, and in some studies, even provide anti-cancer benefits.

SuperBeets are a great addition to your weekly consumption of dietary supplements. Still, keep in mind they are high in sugar and thus high in carbs. So it is best to not eat on a daily basis.
The good news is you can feel free to eat as much and as often as you like of the leafy greens up the top of the beets.
As with all fruits and vegetables, eating whole fresh beet is better for you than any concentrated product like SuperBeets; it is just much less convenient.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Yes. Some people have mentioned conditions like upset stomach, nausea, bloating, gas, and cramping. These are relatively rare, so it’s hard to say that SuperBeets is the cause, but it’s worth mentioning.

The one side effect that occurs in a large group of people is beeturia. Basically meaning “beet pee”, this is when the coloring of the beets turns your urine or stools red. This is not dangerous, and while it may be a surprise the first time you see it, it’s not a reason to stop using this supplement.

Does It Work?

SuperBeets have been shown to help most people in their individual health needs. Still, there is a certain group of people that have not shown any health improvements while using SuperBeets. If you fall into that category, we suggest you not worry about and just move on with your personal quest for dietary supplements that work best for you.

Thus, instead of telling you about our own experience with SuperBeets, here are some reviews from around the web and what they tell us about this product. All of the numbers cited below are accurate as of 3/8/2018, the day we wrote this review.

Amazon reviewers place it at 3.5/5 with 495 reviews from customers, making it one of the broadest and most informative sources. 57% of the reviews on Amazon are positive, with customers citing things like definitely feeling a difference. The critical reviews note that the product doesn’t seem to work for everyone, and in one case, a buyer claimed to have gotten a half-full canister that weighed much less than it should have.

It’s worth mentioning that even some people offering positive reviews felt like there was too little product for the price.

DietSpotlight gives SuperBeets a rating of 3.7/5 with 202 votes from the community. While most people commenting on this site had positive things to say, some cited issues like the flavor being too sweet. Others noted that the product might have little or no effect on people who already have enough Nitric Oxide, essentially resulting in an expensive dud.

(Worth noting: This review site heavily promoted Burn HD, their own weight loss product, as an alternative – when weight loss isn’t what SuperBeets is for in the first place. For this reason, we recommend paying less attention to their article and more to the comments below.)

eBay sells this product directly, with an overall rating of 3.9/5 after 39 reviews. 68% were listed as willing to recommend the product, 65% thought it was a good value, and 75% felt the product was of good quality. The overall impression is that SuperBeets seem to work but are priced a bit higher than most people want to pay.

Healthy Me 123 rates this product 3.63/5 after 19 votes. Of particular note, this review observed that some people had difficulty getting to sleep. That’s a point in favor of the product’s claim that it provides more energy, because of course you’ll have trouble sleeping when you’re energetic. For that reason, they feel this product should be consumed in the morning.

This review also observed that many people complaining of gastrointestinal difficulties had poor diets, and often quit SuperBeets instead of waiting for their body to finish adjusting to the new nutrition. (SuperBeets claims to provide a chemical that affects the digestive system, and again, this indicates that the product is actually working.)

HighYa gives SuperBeets a rating of 3.5/5 after 28 customer reviews. Here, people are widely split, with the majority giving it either 5 stars or 1 star – there’s not a whole lot of in-between feelings. Positive statements include things like helping to hold blood pressure down and enjoying the flavor, while negative reviews cited a terrible taste and, in one case, a concern that too many nitrates would pull nutrients away from other parts of the body.

Review Summary

Reviews of SuperBeets are extremely consistent across multiple sites. Together, more than 750 buyers contributed to the scores and comments above, and the five sites above give an average score of 3.64/5.

The most important thing to take away from each review of Superbeets is that most people either gain a benefit or they don’t. Too many people have cited feeling better for us to believe the product is a fake, or that it’s just a placebo effect. At the same time, too many people have cited feeling no change for us to believe that’s an outlier. As such, we estimate that about 70% of buyers will see a benefit from using this product.

That’s honestly not as high as we’d like it to be, but as dietary supplements go, every indication is that SuperBeets work for most people. If you buy this product and it doesn’t seem to do anything, chances are you’re just part of the group that, for whatever reason, it doesn’t seem to affect very much. Don’t worry about it and move on.
