Experimental: Beetroot crystals (nitrate)
Participants will receive a nitrate rich beetroot powder (10g/day) for 8 weeks.
Dietary Supplement: Super Beets
Nitrate rich beetroot powder (10g/day) for 8 weeks
Other Name: Beetroot crystals
Placebo Comparator: Placebo (beetroot powder, no nitrate)
Participants will receive a beetroot powder placebo (no nitrate) for 8 weeks.
Other: Super Beets Placebo
Nitrate deficient beetroot powder (10g/day) for 8 weeks
Other Name: Beetroot crystals no nitrate
- Change in exercise capacity [ Time Frame: Pre and post 8 weeks of dietary nitrate supplementation ]A 12-lead ECG, symptom limited cardiopulmonary exercise testing with gas exchange measurements will be performed on a cycle ergometer using a ramp protocol to determine peak aerobic capacity (VO2peak) and exercise efficiency.
- Change in skeletal muscle perfusion during exercise [ Time Frame: Pre and post 8 weeks of dietary nitrate supplementation ]Forearm blood flow will be determined using Doppler ultrasound during rhythmic forearm exercise
- Change in skeletal muscle mitochondrial function [ Time Frame: Pre and post 8 weeks of dietary nitrate supplementation ]Muscle biopsies will be obtained from the vastus lateralis using a Bergstrom needle with suction under local anesthesia, which will yield ~200-250mg of tissue. Mitochondrial function will be assessed as follows: Fiber bundles will be chemically permeabilized with saponin and mitochondrial respiration will be analyzed by in situ high-resolution respirometry at 37°.
