Active Edge is a natural remedy and sport performance brand.  We sell a range of premium, natural, plant-based juices proven to give you an edge, when taken as part of your training and nutrition regime, whatever your sport.

Our customers include everyday people enjoying regular exercise and fitness activity, serious elite athletes and professional, world class sport players and teams.

Two of our premium, natural juice range include BeetActive, made from 100% concentrated beetroot juice and CherryActive, made from 100% concentrated Montmorency cherry juice.

These two products are backed by research to give you a significant boost to your training and competition.

BeetActive – take pre-training to boost your sports endurance.

BeetActive is a 100% natural, concentrated beetroot juice and contains no added unnecessary chemical additives, sugars or preservatives.

Drinking beetroot juice 1-2 hours before training or competition has been shown to significantly improve endurance performance. 

This means you can compete or train at higher intensities for longer.

A few extra reps before reaching fatigue, running faster for longer, significant improvements in rowing, cycling or SkiErg challenges!

This is because beetroots are a rich source of dietary nitrates.  These convert to nitric oxide in the body, which improve blood flow to the working

muscles.  Nitric oxide also improve the efficiency of the power generators (mitochondria) in your cells.

CherryActive – take post-training to speed your recovery and reduce soreness.

CherryActive is a 100% natural, concentrated Montmorency cherry juice and contains no added unnecessary chemical additives, sugars or preservatives.

Drinking Montmorency cherry juice after training or competition has been shown to speed recovery and reduce muscle soreness.  Faster recovery

can enable you to train more frequently, leading to increased performance levels.  Reduced soreness leads to better form in training and better motivation.

Montmorency cherries have also been shown to improve sleep quality, another benefit for those with heavy training regimes.

Montmorency cherries are a variety of cherry that are rich in natural compounds, antioxidants and anthocyanins. 

Free radicals are the “exhaust fumes” produced during hard training and sport, which fatigue muscles and slow recovery.  Antioxidants mop up these free radicals,

helping the muscles repair quickly and recover their strength.  Anthocyanins are natural anti-inflammatory compounds, which reduce inflammation and soreness in muscles and joints after exercise.
