What makes the best nitric oxide supplements?

Ever wonder, what makes the best nitric oxide supplements? Well then, your in luck, because we have a few answers for you. Clean ingredients, and proper formulating. But first, let's start with some of the basics about nitric oxide. 

What is nitric oxide?” Many people are just beginning to learn about the importance of nitric oxide, although it was discovered over twenty years ago.*

Nitric oxide is not an ingredient, but an “activation” in our body. It is often referred to as a key “Messenger Molecule” that supports healthy blood flow and circulation. Healthy blood flow is also important for overall vitality, skin health, and nutrient absorption.

Additional benefits of N-O: Wound healing, Anti-Aging, Increased Energy Production, Enhanced Memory, Oxygen Flow,  and Increased Blood Flow to Organs.

Taking center stage in over 160,000 studies and claiming the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1998, nitric oxide  (N-O) is a chemical compound consisting of one nitrogen (N) atom and one oxygen (O) atom. Nitric oxide serves as a secondary neurotransmitter between the brain and nerve cells within the body. Nitric oxide also doubles as a vasodilator (widening of the artery walls) in the circulatory system.

How do I obtain nitric oxide?

Good news: The body produces nitric oxide naturally.

Bad news: Nitric oxide production declines as we age.

There are two ways the body generates nitric oxide. The easiest and best way to increase nitric oxide production is through a healthy nitrate-rich plant-based eating plan. Foods entering the GI tract are naturally converted into nitric oxide during the digestion process.

The second way is an enzyme known as nitric oxide synthase (NOS). Nitric oxide synthase- synthesizes N-O, by combining oxygen with the amino acid L-arginine, which is our preparatory formulation that does better than anyone else in the world.

Why is nitric oxide so critical for our body?

Without it, we can’t live. In fact, the loss of nitric oxide has been linked to cardiovascular health and has been called the greatest discovery in cardiovascular medicine.

N-O signals our blood vessels to relax, helping to dilate the arteries and increase circulation. It is essential to our very existence. And while it’s abundant in our body’s systems, it’s unstable and depletes, requiring it to be replenished

Nitric Oxide and the Body

Our cardiovascular system relies on nitric oxide. So, no matter your age or stage of life, N-O is critical to your health. This is poignant when you consider a sizable percentage of American adults have unhealthy blood pressure.

This essential molecule signals our blood vessels to relax and expand, creating greater efficiency in the body, greater nutrient delivery, greater oxygenation and so on to every system, organ, and tissue in the body. It also supports healthy blood pressure. The point is that N-O is truly linked to everything we do and every breath we take.

If we dive even deeper, we’ll see that nitric oxide is tied closely to endothelial function. The endothelium is the tissue that forms a single layer of cells lining our blood vessels and heart.

Growing evidence suggests that promoting optimal endothelial function is associated with increased cardiovascular health. N-O helps keep the endothelium healthy; a healthy endothelium helps produce more N-O. Maintaining the proper functioning of this cycle is important for those who want to achieve their personal best at any age.

What happens when N-O levels drop?

Age: We already know our bodies change as we age. This is true for nitric oxide levels in the body, as well. By the time we reach 40, studies have shown that we only produce about half or less of the nitric oxide we did at age 20. And it continues to decline as we age.

There’s also a difference when it comes to gender: by 40, men produce about 50% of the N-O they did in their teens and twenties.

And women only produce about 35% of what they did in their twenties at age 50.

Yet, our ability to produce and generate N-O within the body is a key element of a healthy body. Which means having an effective strategy to maintain optimal levels is critical because it affects how every cell in our body communicates with each other.

Diet: A diet rich in green, leafy vegetables is known to be cardio healthy. For decades nutritionists and scientists thought these effects were from the antioxidants found in those foods. Now we know that it’s due to the dietary nitrates found in green, leafy vegetables and beets. Nitrates are metabolized into nitric oxide in the human body by oral nitrate-reducing bacteria. If we don’t consume enough high nitrate vegetables, then we become N-O deficient, and our N-O levels begin to fall.

Exercise: Physical exercise is the most potent stimulator of Nitric Oxide production and is considered one of the top strategies for supporting overall cardiovascular health. However, when we don’t exercise, we lose that important signal that tells our body to make more N-O. As a result, the enzyme that makes N-O in response to exercise becomes dysfunctional.

This usually leads to N-O insufficiency. Just as in the aging process, the problem is the inability to utilize L-arginine to make Nitric Oxide. The good news, however, is that once we begin to exercise, we may regain the functionality of that enzyme and begin to stimulate more N-O production.

You ask a lot of your body: Replenish N-O every day.

Unfortunately, in today’s world of refined foods these options may not be enough, especially for those over 40. That’s where functional and nutritional supplementation come in to play. Professional athletes and body builders have known about the “secret” of L-citrulline and L-arginine benefits for decades because they knew how important these compounds are to boost the immune system, in particular for heart, and blood vessel health leading to improved work outs and endurance.

Supplementation can help!

There are plenty of choices available from sports supplement companies along with a variety of  nutraceutical brands. It is good to have options, because one size doesn’t necessarily fit all. Each of us have unique preferences. We suggest reading the ingredients in the dietary supplement formulation and conducting your own research.

Many brands focus on just a few key ingredients. Be careful of unnecessary synthetic ingredients, binders, or fillers. Additives or preservatives. There is more than one way to produce nitric oxide, so it makes sense that there are different variations with dietary supplements.

Since we at Ultimate Beauty Health focus on natural, indigenous sourced, non-GMOs, and gluten free ingredients, our proprietary formulation includes but is not limited to including L-citrulline and L-Arginine.

Rejuvenation 40+ is our new 2022 version of a nitric oxide boosting dietary supplement along with our first professional nutricosmetic we named Nitric Oxide Rejuvenation.

The difference between our nitric oxide formulations and others on the market is simple, in addition to taking a nutritional approach, we include antioxidants, and vitamins to further support healthy skin, hair, and nails while helping the body’s ability in the N-O replenishment process.

Ultimate (Beauty) Recovery is our collagen supplement with natural folate as 5-MTHF and supports the collagen synthesis process for skin, wound healing, connective tissue and with an abundance of B12, eye health support. At the end of the day, the choice is yours.

The discovery of nitric oxide is what Ultimate Beauty, and TruBeauty Science is built on. We aspire to bring knowledge and understanding of the importance of Nitric Oxide support into the world.
