Convinced about Beetroot juice yet?

Convinced about Caffeine yet?


Actually if all this natural stuff makes us faster I think I’m going to take up a summer job eating fruit on a farm…ahem, sorry, I mean PICKING fruit on a farm for minimum wage. Once I’ve finished that I’ll sneak off to a neighbouring field to follow the tractors turning up all the root veg.

It might all even be vaguely healthy. Shock. Horror. They’ll be saying water stops dehydration next…nah. #isotonic
