Nitric Oxide Support for a Healthy Cardiovascular System.
A Nobel Prize was awarded in 1998 for the discovery that nitric oxide plays a significant role in the cardiovascular system. Nitric oxide is naturally made in our body but the fact is you produce less of it as you age. At its very core, nitric oxide is the ‘miracle molecule’ responsible for healthy circulation, where it widens blood vessels and micro-circulation allowing oxygen and nutrient delivery to all cells.
Berkeley Life professional helps support nitric oxide levels by supplementing your diet with dietary nitrates which are the bioequivalent to those found in leafy, green plants. This helps to maintain the cardiovascular system and overall health and vitality. Just two tablets a day will give you the same nitric oxide boost as consuming 5oz of spinach or 7oz of beets.
The recommendation of the Berkeley Life Scientific Advisory Board is to consider nitric oxide as a base supplement with all our levels declining over time. By improving cardiovascular health, you are not only ensuring improved circulation but also that other treatments included in your protocol will be able to circulate more effectively in the body.
The Berkeley Life supplements are best paired with the Berkeley Life Nitric Oxide Test Strips which help to validate their effectiveness in as little as 90 minutes after a single dose.
Berkeley Life Nitric Oxide Test Strips provide an indication of nitric oxide levels in an easy-to-use saliva test. The test takes 15 seconds to complete and will provide a reading somewhere on the color spectrum provided. The test is based on the Greiss Test which is a commonly used measure of nitritein a solution. Best practice is to test your nitric oxide levels before and after a dietary nitrate rich meal or supplement. A noticeable difference should be apparent on the test strip readings after 90 minutes.
If no change is apparent on the test strip 90 minutes after the dietary nitrate intake, it is worth considering:
- Did you abstain from consuming food or drink at least 15 mins before doing both tests?
Are you regularly using an antibacterial mouthwash or whitening toothpaste which can affect the oral microbiome and as a result nitric oxide production?
- Have you been taking a strong antibiotic which could also affect the oral microbiome?
- Are you experience issues with your gut microbiome?
The test strips are best combined with Berkeley Life Nitric Oxide Supplements which provide the dietary nitrates found in plants, as well as key vitamins, to help support nitric oxide levels, the cardiovascular system along with overall health and vitality.
