Numerous university studies have suggested that dietary nitrate supplementation (particularly via beetroot juice) may benefit athletes both at sea level and altitude. Sport climbers may notice the ability to push through a tough sequence and still have enough stamina to finish the pitch. Alpinists could see sustained improvement at high altitude, having more endurance for hanging on ice tools during technical ice climbing. Basically, nitrate supplementing equal better overall performance, no matter your chosen climbing discipline.
