Nitric Oxide: A Supercharging Powerhouse
A Nobel Prize Winning Molecule
Nitric Oxide is a simple, yet powerful molecule responsible for an array of health promoting benefits, such as increased oxygenation and vasodilation (opening of the bloods vessels) and reducing inflammation. It also supports immunity, gastrointestinal health, skin health and more. As a result, it is a highly researched molecule which led to it winning Molecule of The Year in 1992 and The Nobel Prize for Medicine or Physiology in 1998.
Nitrate Rich Foods Are Phenomenal!
Nitrates that are naturally occurring in plant foods such as beets, celery and spinach are responsible for increased health benefits because they are converted to Nitric Oxide within the body. Nitric Oxide synthesis is also based on the successful conversion of inorganic nitrates in the form of sodium and potassium nitrate. In fact, breast milk is also rich in nitrate. Plant based nitrates are naturally and intelligently accompanied by powerful antioxidants such as vitamin C. This is why AOR's Nitric Oxide boosting NOx products are so beneficial, seeing they are inspired by beets and other nitrate rich plant foods! Our process utilizes the direct conversion pathway of inorganic nitrates into Nitric Oxide within the body which is complemented by our proprietary blend of antioxidants to ensure healthful benefit.
The Ultimate Supercharger
Once Nitric Oxide is utilized correctly, safely and efficiently, its possibilities are endless to say the least. Seeing it is such a diverse molecule, with a multitude of actions, it is also a powerful "supercharger" because it is able to enhance the action of a substance with which it shares similar effects and improve its bioavailability. This is why we developed the NOx combined products, which are highly effective at a smaller dose.
Debunking the Bad Rap
Unfortunately, nitrates have suffered a bad reputation and are a hot bed of controversy. Nitrates have been linked to the health problems associated with cured meats, increased risk of cancer, blue baby syndrome and environmental problems and water contamination associated with fertilizers.
Fortunately, the evidence tells us that dietary nitrates are safe and necessary for health and vitality. AOR is the first nutraceutical company to carefully examine all available research, to challenge the myths about the danger of nitrates, and to bring to light the truth about their importance for good health.
Preserved Meats: One of the main issues surrounding nitrates is the potential formation of N-Nitrosamines, which are associated with the consumption of "cured" meats, i.e. preserved with nitrites, not nitrates. N-Nitrosamines have indeed been linked to health risks, but very specific conditions need to be present in order for them to form and become dangerous. Nitrite, not nitrate, must be present along with short-chain saturated fats combined with secondary amines found in animal proteins, high cooking temperatures of 130?C or more, and the burning and charring methods used in smoking or curing meats. All of these factors must be present in order to form N-Nitrosamines, and it is this lethal combination that creates the true link to cancer.
Blue Baby Syndrome: Blue baby syndrome was thought to be caused by high nitrate in the water supply. However, the actual cause of the problem was later found to be the presence of bacteria in the water, not the nitrate.
Fertilizers: Too much of a good thing is often not good. It is true that excessive amounts of nitrate in water run-off from fertilizers can cause environmental disturbances. Excessive amounts of anything naturally present will alter the ecosystem and cause problems, but this must not cause us to think that dietary nitrates naturally found in foods are dangerous!
Now you have a clearer picture of the true benefits of nitrates and the unfounded fears created by their unsubstantiated claims. Take control of your health and reap the benefits of this previously controversial nutrient. Try one of our NOx based products today, and be amazed with the results!
has the remarkable ability to enhance the action of a substance with which it shares similar effects. Both ashwagandha and Nitric Oxide found in RejuveNOx
promote relaxation, thus creating a supercharged ashwagandha. Ashwagandha is one of the most revered and widely used plants in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Also known as Indian ginseng, it is considered a rejuvenative tonic or adaptogen. RejuveNOx not only promotes the best of both worlds by delivering the combined benefits of both ashwagandha and Nitric Oxide, it is more effective at a smaller dose.
is a natural adaptogen that helps the body to cope with stressful situations. It improves stress tolerance and helps to restore and maintain the bodys energy levels during stress, thereby reducing fatigue and exhaustion. Ashwagandha has also been shown to increase and maintain Nitric Oxide levels in the body. The body naturally produces more Nitric Oxide when it is relaxed, so increasing it can help to create a more relaxed state throughout the body. By relaxing the blood vessels and improving circulation, Nitric Oxide increases blood flow to the brain, lowers blood pressure and improves oxygen delivery to the whole body. Increased Nitric Oxide and relaxed blood vessels tell the body that its in a state of relaxation, which encourages repair and rejuvenation.
Nitric Oxide can also help to reduce the damaging effects of excess cortisol and other stress hormones.
Ashwagandha helps boost vigour and vitality and has been shown to reverse several parameters related to aging. Nitric Oxide production begins to decline after age 40 but the body still responds to it when supplied through the diet.
RejuveNOx creates the opportunity for the body to simulate a relaxed condition while improving performance, making RejuveNOx both an energizing and rejuvenating formula. It is ideal for those who feel old and tired or for those needing an extra boost to help balance a busy or stressful lifestyle.
