Nitric Oxide - Supplement

Nitric Oxide is a must for almost any individual involved in just about any sport, age or fitness level.   Next to BCAAs (see previous blog postings), they are staple of my health journey.

It is such an incredible supplement that in 1988 three researchers were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their discovery of endogenous Nitric Oxide, its existence in the body and its effect on the cardiovascular system.

Nitric Oxide (NO) is a gas that is produced by every cell and organ in the body.   It plays a primary role in so many critical functions including the regulation of blood pressure, learning and memory formation, and our immune system.  Some benefits from taking an NO supplement include increased blood circulation, enhanced endurance, enhanced immune system, increased alertness and focus, reduced inflammation and increased muscle mass.

From athletes to expeditions to Mt Everest to critically ill patients, NO supplementation is useful to open up the blood vessels and capillaries to increase blood flow and deliver oxygen and critical nutrients throughout your body at the time it needs them most.

Stay tuned………
