Nitric Oxide: A Key To Cardiovascular Health & Athletic Performance

A Nitric Oxide Deficiency can affect you in so many ways. Nitric oxide is a gas that is produced in every tissue and organ of your body, from your muscles to your brain. This chemical tells arteries to relax which allows more oxygen into tissues by increasing blood flow. Because it opens arteries, it also lowers blood pressure. Nitric oxide is used to modulate pain and excite nerves in the brain. Sexual function can suffer due to Nitric Oxide Deficiency in both men and women. Most men experiencing erectile disfunction have probably heard of Nitric oxide in correlation with achieving an erection. Nitric oxide is the sole chemical that creates an erection. Medications like Viagra and Cialis help Nitric Oxide Deficiency by working on an enzyme that forces more Nitric oxide to be produced in the penis thus achieving a more powerful erection.

The Nitric oxide molecule is one nitrogen atom bound to one oxygen atom. The chemical formula is N-O. Research on Nitric oxide in the human body first began in the 1970s, and in 1992 the journal Science proclaimed it โ€œThe Molecule of the Year.โ€ By 1998, three pharmacologists were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. They discovered that Nitric oxide is a major signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system. Nitric oxide was the first gas ever to be identified as a signaling molecule. The Nitric oxide molecule carries messages at the microscopic cellular level. Although Nitric oxide is abundant in the body, it is unstable and short-lived. Thus, it must be renewed continuously. A large and growing body of research points to Nitric oxideโ€™s broad impact on health on all bodily systems.

Symptoms of Nitric Oxide Deficiency can be difficult to discern. Most people feel fatigue, burned out, or tired by 2-3pm. These people are usually hard workers, and they have pushed themselves to exhaustion by utilizing all of their Nitric oxide stores. Many people may not even realize they are experiencing the effects of Nitric oxide deficiency because it has dwindled slowly over time, and they think this is how they โ€œusually feel.โ€ Some people think they are getting older and that they do not have energy like they used to. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it is time to check your Nitric oxide levels:

โ€ข Fatigue or low energy levels
โ€ข Decreased workout potential
โ€ข Less energy at the gym
โ€ข Less stamina / endurance
โ€ข Erectile dysfunction or Decreased libido
โ€ข Poor Memory or Concentration
โ€ข Irritability, Depression, or Anxiety
โ€ข Insomnia or Difficulty sleeping
โ€ข High blood pressure
โ€ข Decreased heart function
โ€ข Asthma or poor lung function
โ€ข Thin bones

If you have a Nitric Oxide Deficiency, there are multiple ways to increase your Nitric oxide levels:

โ€ข Take a Nitric oxide supplement (MORE THAN BEETS)
โ€ข Exercise (Cardio or Fat Burning Exercise)
โ€ข Lose weight
โ€ข Increase dietary nitrates and nitrites
โ€“ Eat beets and dark green leafy vegetables
โ€“ Avoid stomach acid reducers
โ€“ Decrease use of mouthwash

The test includes gathering saliva in your mouth, collecting the saliva (on your finger, a wooden tongue depressor, or clean spoon), and placing it on the test strip.

It takes about 10 seconds for the results. The testing strip will indicate whether you are deficient, low, or normal. Note that the most accurate sample is to be done in the morning before drinking, eating, or brushing your teeth. If you choose to test yourself at home, you can purchase nitric oxide test strips on Amazon.

The test strips are also useful for monitoring your levels over time. After 1 month of supplementation, it is important to be re-tested in order to ensure that your levels are back up to normal. Each person will require different amounts of dietary nitrates, supplements, and exercise. You should be sure to monitor your levels at least monthly, especially if symptoms return or any of the signs mentioned above begin to occur (high blood pressure, poor heart function, erectile dysfunction, etc).
