Studies have consistently shown that using nitrate-rich vegetable concentrates or shots, such as AMPED™ NOx, can improve cardiovascular fitness and exercise performance. Now a group of scientists from the Netherlands suggests that there’s an obvious [...]
In collaboration with Isagenix scientists, Arizona State University researchers have found that AMPED NOx increases nitric oxide bioavailability in healthy men. The researchers presented their findings during a poster session at the American Society for Nutrition’s annual meeting at Experimental Biology in Chicago on April 25, 2017.
Your muscles use a fair amount of oxygen. But they’re no match for your brain. That’s why newer studies on vegetable nitrates for blood flow support are looking beyond athletic performance and evaluating brain health benefits.
In 2009, Michigan State researchers published a curious finding in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition – that people who had a diet high in leafy green vegetables consumed up to 5+ times (550 percent) more dietary nitrates than the average daily intake (1). Prior to the study, there was controversy over the role of nitrates in the diet and whether or not they were good for health.
Any athlete or person wanting to maximize their workouts knows the feeling of all-out exertion. Lifting weights until muscle failure, sprinting all-out for 100 meters, and simply going until you can’t go anymore are ways to increase exercise performance.
