I have used nitric oxide (NO) supplements (primarily NO Explode by BSN) for several years now and seen many of the benefits that it has on my athletic performance. In 1998, the Nobel Prize was awarded for the discovery of nitric oxide and its effect on oxygen in human body and more importantly the cardiovascular system.
This Nitric Oxide molecule has several critical effects on the human body which is dilation of blood vessels, increased blood flow and optimization of oxygen delivery to the cells. After years of eating beets, I was excited to see that there was a 100% truly pure supplement that increased Nitric Oxide levels naturally. Nitric Oxide is a multifunctional signal transmitter that’s produced in the cells and outside the cell wall. This molecule is manufactured in skeletal muscle, heart muscle, blood vessel lining and other specific tissues.
Researchers have determined that Nitric Oxide production is linked to exercise and this production is increased with exercise. Naturally occurring nitrates and nitrites thru beets and green leafy vegetables gives the body the ability to increase this production of Nitric Oxide. This naturally occurring elevation that occurs through diet consumption will increase the Nitric Oxide production in the cells. Athletic performance benefits are improved blood flow to the muscle, access to increased glucose for ATP production and the removal of specific byproducts of exercise primarily Lactic Acid. Increased oxygen to the cell improves the efficiency of oxygen that is in the muscle cell giving the athlete a reduced oxygen cost of exercise.
The performance benefits of Nitric Oxide are in athletic recovery, strength and endurance that have been well proven through research. Humann BeetElite (crystals) and SuperBeets (chews) were designed to quickly be consumed and absorbed in the body with the power of 6 beets to increase Nitric Oxide production. BeetElite/SuperBeets is highly concentrated, clinically researched, scientifically formulated to provide optimum levels of essential Nitric Oxide. Humann Beet products are a simple, natural performance and health enhancing supplement with nothing artificial with all the effectiveness of consuming Beets without all the mess. Research has shown significant improvement in athletic performance with consumption of naturally occurring Nitric Oxide thru beets. The key general health benefits of consumption include supporting healthy blood pressure levels, promote improved energy and stamina, may support respiratory health through Nitric Oxide production, promote Nitric Oxide production, support healthy circulation and delivers antioxidant support with an excellent source of Vitamin C. I consume usually before every workout and I know that there is a significant difference on my athletic performance and overall health benefits. Thanks for reading, Dr. Joe
