SuperBeets Review: Does It Really Work?

Written By : Rohit Dwivedi, M.D.   ✓ Fact Checked

SuperBeets is a nutrient dietary supplement from beetroot powder that promote Nitric Oxide production, support healthy circulation, healthy blood pressure levels, improve natural energy and stamina.

(Last Updated on March 4, 2022)

We seem to have been bombarded over recent years with advice about “Superfoods”, juicing, and their benefits to our health.

One of the many things that we can find on the list of “Superfoods” is beets.

Beetroot has a high sugar content and is a good source of fiber. It also contains folates, nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants.

Some of the health benefits of eating beetroot appear to be the lowering of blood pressure and a boost to energy.

  • One study suggests that consuming beetroot juice may lower blood pressure. This could be due to the presence of nitrates.
  • Another study suggests beetroot juice may improve exercise performance.

These are some of the claims made by Superbeets, as well as providing a healthy circulation.

So why would I want to use a powdered beetroot to make a juice, rather than the real thing?

And with so many supplemental products on the market, why Superbeets? Read this review.

What Is HumanN Superbeets?

superbeets supplement

Superbeets is one of a range of products from HumanN, previously known as Neogenesis. A relatively young company founded in 2009.

The company was founded by Joel Kocher, a marketing executive and Dr.Nathan Bryan, who holds a Biochemistry Degree from the University of Austin, Texas.

There are also a number of consultants on what they call their Science Advisory Board. They claim to have  “unparalleled level of expertise and experience in the area of nutrition, functional foods, supplements, and in Nitric Oxide research”.

Their products appear to concentrate on the production of Nitric Oxide in the body. More about Nitric Oxide in a while.

This Product  is a concentrate of beet crystals in two flavours, black cherry or original claiming to be “highly concentrated and scientifically formulated to provide optimum levels of essential Nitric Oxide”.

They are freeze dried using a process patented by the company and are non-GMO. It’s  packaging claims it is a circulation superfood.

One teaspoon of the powder, the recommended daily intake, claims to provide the nitric oxide equivalent of three whole beets. It says it can help with:

  • Nitric oxide production.
  • Healthy circulation.
  • Healthy blood pressure levels.
  • Improved energy and stamina.

SuperBeets Ingredients

ingredients

  • Non-GMO beetroot powder
  • Fermented non-GMO beetroot powder
  • Natural apple flavor
  • Malic acid
  • Magnesium ascorbate
  • Stevia leaf extract

Looking at the list of ingredients there don’t appear to be any additives. But how do these ingredients live up to SuperBeets claims?

How SuperBeets Work?

how it works

This supplement concentrates highly on the production of nitric oxide and how it benefits our health. They don’t however tell us how much nitric acid is provided from the recommended daily intake.

Nitric oxide is a gas that can help widen blood vessels and improve circulation. Consequently, nitrates in pill form, may be prescribed to treat angina and coronary heart disease. Improved circulation can lead to lower blood pressure.

I searched and found many scientifically proven studies of the beneficial effects of nitrates and nitric oxide, but I could not find any clinically proven evidence on the HumanN website to backup their claims.

There are a few scientific studies covering beetroot juice supplements and performance in athletes, and one stating that:

Beetroot supplementation is a new and exciting area of research that to date has been shown to induce favourable effects in several facets of health and disease.

SuperBeets Side Effects

superbeets real users reviews

There are some side effects associated with beets and their supplements:

  • Can cause low calcium levels and kidney damage.
  • Not known whether it is safe to consume when pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • May exacerbate kidney disease.
  • As it claims to lower blood pressure, if this is something you suffer from it may not be advisable to take Superbeets.

As with anything, if you are unsure check with your doctor before using it.

SuperBeets Reviews & Complaints

I found numerous customer reviews for SuperBeets. At the time of writing this of 446 reviews on Amazon.com.

  • 259 were positive
  • 187 negative

Most of the customer complaints seem to revolve around the taste, even from those that the rate the product highly on all other fronts. It appears that it’s a bit like marmite, you either love it or hate it!

Debra Quick and her husband tried the product and, she writes:

This product tastes horrible. Could not tell any difference in energy level. My husband tried it as well with same results. No more energy and a bad taste that stayed with us ALL Day. Would not recommend this to anyone.

Also, as Debra has stated, a lot of the negative comments reflect around the fact that the product did not deliver what was promised. No increased energy levels seeming to be the main one.

On the other hand, there are those customers that love SuperBeets.

Dread Pirate Roberts also writes:

Super Beets makes a dramatic difference in how my wife and I feel throughout the day. We can really tell when we forget to take it, in the morning. We’re both fine with the taste, and it dissolves completely.

The question of being able to dissolve the product as directed has cropped up quite a few times, some people say the powder forms clumps.

Other observations made from these reviews are that delivery timescales are met. Some people have seen a reduction  in their blood pressure, albeit a few of these have stated they have made other changes to diet and exercise.

Douglas Oran Watts states:

Great product, had to quit taking my blood pressure medication.

Another issue seems to be with the amount of product in the container, several people have written that the container is half empty, so maybe size matters and a smaller container would suffice. This even comes from people that are happy with the product overall.

Jackwoolen posted:

Am happy with the results I’m getting with this product, especially since I have been plagued with poor circulation and anemia for years. Only drawback is the price. Very expensive and very little product in the container.

Jack has raised the subject of price, and quite a few people have commented that it is expensive, however there are those that are happy to pay the cost for the results they get.

SuperBeets: Packages, Prices & Where To Buy

You can buy SuperBeets direct from HumanN.

You have the option of a one time purchase priced as follows for either original or black cherry flavour.

  • 1 box (30 servings): $39.95 + $8.95 for shipping & handling.
  • 2 boxes + 1 FREE (90 servings): $79.90 (free shpping & handling) | TOTAL SAVINGS: 33%
  • 4 boxes + 2 FREE (180 servings): $149.90 (free shpping & handling) | TOTAL SAVINGS: 37%

Also available as a one time purchase are individual 5g sachets of Black Cherry flavor for $14.95. No Shipping & Handling fees are shown, however they will apply a $2 discount at the checkout if you buy the sachets with another product.

HumanN also give you the option to subscribe monthly, free of any additional charge for either subscription or shipping. If you sign up it costs:

  • $34.95 for 1 canister every 30 days.
  • $69.90 for 3 canisters every 90 days.

Interestingly HumanN also offer a product called BeetElite. Same ingredients as Superbeets but in a 200g canister for $39.95.

They market this as an ‘Endurance Superfood”, and advise 2 scoops a day, as opposed to 1 scoop a day of SuperBeet. By my calculations, if these products are the same and just being marketed differently the BeetElite as a single canister is cheaper, if you only use a scoop a day.

See below how the official site looks like.

There were a few comments surrounding returning an empty canister in good condition among the customer reviews that I looked at.

  1. I suffered with bad circulation in my feet..had every test known to man,was desperate for relief,the pain was horrible ,I decided to try super beets after only 3 weeks my feet are 90% better, i have more energy and feel great,I would highly recommend Super Beets..it just tastes like beets,I love it

  2. My father and I drink Super beets every morning and we notice that we have more energy and a better immune system. I would recommend Super beets because it is a healthy and delicious drink and you can notice it working.

    1. Product nearly killed me. No warnings about possible side effects. Plus HumanN is being sued for using false adverts, false patent info, and more shady things I found out after I bought and used the product. Run away from this product.

  3. Just ordered on eBay 4 canisters, paid $32 each including tax& shipping. I will be glad to update in a few weeks.
    My situation: healthy male not on any medications, 47, self employed restauranteur employing 35+-, stress is unavoidable. Only medical issue is diabetes runs in family, blood pressure is close to high so my doctor is monitoring. I try my best to avoid sugar in the last two years.. update to follow

  4. I’m prone to gout and have heard that beet powder can cause a gout attack. Anyone know more about this. I’m trying to control my gout with diet as I’m not a fan of the medication, so I’m afraid of anything that can cause an attack.

  5. I have two question. Dose Super Beets contain Vitamin K? How does it affect your kidney? Thanks, for your time reading and reply yo my qestions, Shirley

  6. Just reading the Pro’s & Con’s I would not waste my money. There is more Con’s than Pro’s! There’s not many review’s.

  7. I bought this for my 89 year old father . He has heart failure , thus poor circulation. I figure it can’t hurt, plus he is anemic too. I figure in a few weeks maybe his blood will be healthier and it might give him more energy. I take the superbeets too and notice when I jog on the treadmill and hour after consuming it, I have more endurance on the treadmill. could be from drinking it the day before and sleeping on it. Who knows. We like the cherry flavor. I drink the other flavor because my father only like the cherry’s sweet taste.

  8. No noticeable effects here, after finishing off a bag of the force factor chews. I think that there is a lot of hype surrounding them. Also, nitrates are a known cancer causer. Consumers need to be careful with this product.

  9. I HAD high blood pressure, circulation issues and chronic pain. I was on 2 blood pressure meds Linsinopril 150mg 1/day and Losartan 50mg 1/day. My resting BP always fell into an average range on 160/90 to 170/110. I did not exercise much at all as my chest and head would pound to the point and I could see my pulsebeat in my eyes. Seriously! It felt as if chest or head would explode, I would get pounding, blinding headaches. The side effects of the BP meds is what drove me to find a natural solution. I ordered super beets, began drinking each morning. Sixteen days after, I went for pain injections and my BP was below normal at 118/68. I was instructed to drop one of the BP meds. Over the next 3 months I’ve been to the Dr few times and my BP continued dropping. MY Dr removed the 2nd BP med. To date, I do not take ANY meds for high blood pressure!! Once I was taken off my meds, my energy soared!! It was phenomenal!!! I won’t be without superbeets!!
