The Science Behind AltRed

Published clinical research proves that AltRed Works

The Active Ingredient: Betalains "Unleashed"

AltRed is powered by a single active ingredient, a phytonutrient called betalain that comes from beets. Betalain gives beets their bright red color and is has the ability to reduce inflammation induced by exercise. AltRed is produced through a patented process, which isolates and concentrates betalain in beets, “unleashing” its ability to improve athletic performance.

Clinically Proven Performance


Researchers at UC Davis conducted a double-blind, crossover study on distance runners and showed that the runners performed an average of 42 seconds better (3% faster) in a 5k time trial when they used AltRed!



Another double-blind, crossover study at UC Davis conducted on triathletes, showed that they performed an average of 45 seconds better (again 3% faster) in a 5K “recovery” time trial performed twenty-four (24) hours after completing a 10K time trial when they used AltRed! (they also completed the initial 10K time trial 54 second better with AltRed!)

How AltRed Impacts Endurance and Recovery

More Watts*

Cyclists produced an average of 7.63 more watts (a 3.5% increase) during a 30-minute functional threshold power test when they used AltRed!

More Distance*

Cyclists rode an average of 2.5% farther during a 30-minute biking trial when they used AltRed!

Increased Efficiency*

Cyclists achieved an average of a 5.4% increase in cycling efficiency when they used AltRed!  In other words, more watts at the same metabolic rate, or the same watts at a reduced metabolic rate (meaning less physiological strain)!

Reduced Markers of Muscle Damage*

Triathletes experienced an average a 9% reduction in a key muscle damage indicator known as creatine kinase when they used AltRed! Less muscle damage means a quicker, stronger recovery!

Stronger Recovery*

Runners experience 14% lower blood lactate levels after a 5k time trial. Reducing lactic acid allows athletes to perform longer at a higher capacity and recover quicker.
