Proprietary Nitrate Blend: A potent source of dietary nitrate is broken down in the body to form nitric oxide. Two of our capsules has the dietary nitrate equivalent of 7oz of beetroot.
Nitric oxide has been clinically proven to support healthy blood pressure levels. The inside of the blood vessel is made up of smooth muscle. This is exactly where nitric oxide is also present. It triggers a biochemical reaction which prevents the constriction of these muscles. This causes the blood vessels to expand or open up. As a result of vasodilation, your heart does not have to exert itself too much to pump the blood with greater force.
Female Sexual Arousal Disorder affects up to 70% of women, while the prevalence of moderate erectile dysfunction in the United States appears to be about 30%–50% in men aged 40–70 years old. A com-mon thread between male and female sexual function is how much both are impacted by insufficient circulation. Along with circulation, for females, nitric oxide acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain affecting the release of oxytocin and luteinizing hormone-releasing hormones, which are central in the modu-lation of sexual behavior.
Diminished blood flow to the brain may contribute to cognitive impairment. Adequate blood flow provides fuel and nutrients that may decrease the risk of age-related cognitive decline. Maintaining adequate nitric oxide levels in the aging brain protects many brain functions, including learning and memory.
Adequate blood flow throughout the body allows for increased resistance to infections and provides the capability to localize offending agents. With good circulation and blood flow to every tissue in the body, the immune system can mobilize a strong defense against pathogens.
Products containing L-Arginine are commonly recommended for improving nitric oxide in Patients when it has been shown that these supplements are not effective in substantially increasing NO production.
Supplementing with ARG will not increase eNOS function and may even be harmful by increasing oxidative stress and forming more free radicals. Unlike CIT supplementation, ARG may go down multiple metabolic pathways thus decreasing NO production.
In aging individuals with cardiovascular disease, diabetes or other chronic conditions, NOS frequently becomes uncoupled or dysfunctional. Uncoupled NOS increases superoxide formation and oxidative stress. This can then increase inflammation and is detrimental to tissue.
After the age of 40 and certainly beyond, it has been estimated that NOS functionality reduces by 50%. Using nitrates as an alternate way of producing NO is essential for optimal health and well-being as it is not dependent on NOS to be effective.
Take two capsules once a day with water after food. Do not exceed the recommended daily intake unless under the direction of your physician. Use Berkeley Test Nitric Oxide test strips to monitor your levels.
I can't find the 2 free test strips! They are located inside the flap within the box. Sometimes they slip down.
