Abstract: The use of ergogenic substances in the practice of endurance sports is a very common practice. Beet-derived food supplements are considered an ergogenic aid in this type of sports activity, due to their high nitrate content. Nitrates are metabolized into nitric oxide, which acts on the nucleotide guanosine monophosphate and improves sports performance by increasing vasodilation and favoring muscle contraction. The objective of this bibliographic review is to review the scientific evidence regarding the ergogenic effect of food supplements derived from beetroot on performance in endurance sports, in addition to specify which physiological parameters show greater improvements specifically and through which dose applied these improvements are observed. A key search was performed in the electronic databases PubMed, Google Scholar, Scielo, and CINAHL of clinical trials published between 2012 and 2022, from which 7 articles were finally selected. The results obtained did not allow the extraction of evidence with sufficient statistical power to draw specific conclusions. The only possible connection being the improvement of results in resistance strength efforts when beet juice was consumed in a single dose between two and three hours before the effort. Future studies are needed to confirm this possible connection.
