Optimal NO levels will thus protect you from all the potentially fatal secondary diseases (heart disease, stroke, etc.) that have been associated with chronic hypertension (Haynes. 1993; Stamler. 1994).
Some scientists even go so far as to speculate that the natural increase in NO production that occurs with acute and chronic training (Jungersten. 1997) may be partly responsible for the well-known exercise-induced improvements of blood glucose management. The impaired NO production in diabetics, on the other hand, is part of the vicious cycle that makes it so difficult for diabetics to normalize their glucose levels and lose weight.
Nitric oxide is also heavily involved in the differentiation and regeneration of cells of our nervous system; and even though “the precise functions of NO in developing and regenerating neurons remain unclear” (Bredt. 1994), scientists know for sure that reduced nitric oxide levels as they occur with aging, diabetes and several other common ailments promote the progression of cognitive decline.
Men are yet not the only ones whose sexual function critically depends on the presence of sufficient levels of nitric oxide and its influence on the previously discussed production of serotonin and dopamine, as well as its direct impact on the production of fertility hormones via the NO-induced release of the luteinizing hormone releasing hormone aka “LHRH” (Mani. 1994).
Figure 3: The reformulated nitric oxide patch feeds into both pathways, the arginine
NO pathway (classic) and the nitrate NO pathway to maximally boost your NO levels.
By feeding directly and without first-pass in the liver into the “arginine > nitric oxide”- and the “nitrate > nitric oxide”-pathways, the reformulated “Nitric Oxide Booster” Patch induces significantly more pronounced increases in NO production than any of the first generation arginine-only products you may have tried.

(B) mean power output after 6 days on either nitrate or placebo supplement (Cermak. 2012).
The corresponding increases in nitric oxide production are profound enough to trigger increases in performance not just in sedentary and moderately trained individuals (cf. Besco. 2012), but also in highly trained individuals whose NO production is naturally elevated (Jungersten. 1997; Cermak. 2012 | cf. Figure 4).
