From an athletic perspective, the role of nitric oxide is clear: it relaxes blood vessels, improving blood flow which increases the delivery of oxygen to muscles. This reduces blood pressure, which creates decreased demand on both your heart and skeletal muscles. Further, better blood flow supports your muscles contractibility and even increases your body's ability to transport metabolic by-products like lactic acid. In short, this means that you can go harder while maintaining "freshness" in your legs.
Unfortunately, most athletes have decreased nitric oxide levels. If you're over the age of 40, rarely eat enough green leafy vegetables, train more than 10 hours a week, use fluoride toothpaste, or use antacids, your NO levels are probably low.
That's where SwissRX™ Nitric Oxide comes into play. By boosting your body's own nitric oxide production, SwissRX™ Nitric Oxide helps you:
- Improve the delivery of oxygen as well as key macro and micronutrients to working muscles allowing you to train harder
- Feel fresher in training and racing. By boosting the function of mitochondria, nitric oxide supplementation can result in a lower perceived effort during exercise in addition to reduced muscle soreness and faster recovery
- Fight off illness and reduce the risk of damaging free radicals. Nitric oxide acts as a powerful antioxidant to neutralize free radicals, promote the formation of glutathione stores and support a healthy immune response in times of high stress
