Beetroot contains a high content of nitrate which is beneficial for the body through its vasodilation effects. 

When nitrate enters our body it gets converted into nitric oxide where it opens up the blood vessels to allow more blood and oxygen to be delivered to the muscles. This is beneficial especially during endurance exercises as it reduces the energy cost of exercise.
