Who doesn’t love a good pump when pushing themselves through a tough workout? Feeling the rush of blood that fills up your muscles is intensely gratifying, and our Nitric Oxide capsules are formulated to help achieve peak muscle pumps every time you hit the gym. This stimulant-free vasodilating formula contains clinical doses of hyperemic ingredients, including patented NO3- T arginine nitrate and betaine nitrate, Setria reduced L-glutathione, AstraGin, pine bark proanthocyanidins, and vitamin C. These ingredients go to work rapidly to bolster nitric oxide production and facilitate robust blood flow to skeletal muscle tissue during training, ultimately enhancing performance and recovery.
Note: This product may be stacked with our Pre-Workout Powders for synergistic effects.
NO3-T Arginine Nitrate and Betaine Nitrate
NO3-T provides amino acid-bonded nitrates that serve dual functions as nitrate donors and substrates for nitric oxide synthase. Ingested nitrates provide a complementary mechanism to form nitric oxide when the L-arginine → L-citrulline pathway is suppressed . Thus, a balance of arginine and nitrate ensures stable, lasting nitric oxide production.
Setria L-Glutathione (Reduced)
L-Glutathione is the body’s primary endogenous antioxidant. Hence, it has ubiquitous roles in human physiology by sequestering and eliminating oxidative molecules. Setria is a reduced form of L-glutathione that works to augment nitric oxide production and attenuate oxidative stress, thereby encouraging healthy blood flow and vascular function .
Pine Bark Extract
The bark of Pinus pinaster (French maritime pine) is a rich source of distinct proanthocyanidins, bioflavonoids, and organic acids with pronounced cardioprotective, phlebotonic, and antioxidant properties . Importantly, the proanthocyanidins in pine bark extract are metabolized to catechin, caffeic acid, cinnamic acid, ferulic acid, taxifolin, and a promising compound called δ-(3,4-dihydroxy-phenyl)-γ-valerolactone. These constituents are well-established as anti-hypertensive agents and have been effectively used in clinical applications .
As a crucial water-soluble antioxidant, vitamin C plays many important roles throughout the immune, nervous, and cardiovascular systems. Recent studies have also shown that the antioxidant and acid-forming properties of vitamin C promote the gastrointestinal absorption of nitrates and conversion of nitrite to nitric oxide, making it synergistic with NO3-T [5, 6].
This trademarked adaptogenic extract is comprised of Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus which are suggested to help the body absorb other bioactive nutrients by selectively enhancing gastrointestinal permeability and modulating gut microbiota [7, 8, 9].
