Dr. Nathan Bryan on Nitrate Oxide for Health and Athletic Performance Daniel Weiss Nutrition

    • Health & Fitness

"Your body can not or will not get well or perform to its full potential until you restore production of nitric oxide."



Nitric Oxide is an important molecule that is naturally produced in our body. It has been linked to cardio-vascular health, sexual and mental health as well as popular as a sports supplement (beetroot extract).



However, modern lifestyle and natural factors influence its natural production in our bodies.



Topics Nathan Bryan covered:



Importance of NO for our health.

Importance of NO for sexual health (erectile dysfunction and arousal problems in women).

Importance of NO for performance - Is NO the secret of Ethiopian runners?

What to do to reduce the natural decline of nitric oxide.

How to boost the production of NO and possibly supplement it for improved health and sports performance.

How to understand the research behind sports supplements



You will also learn how to spot a NO supplement that actually works as 99% of supplement don't work.



Besides all of that, Nathan makes an excellent job in explaining how supplements need to be tested to make sure they work and why most of them don't work at all.



Top three vegetables with highest NO content:



Kal

Spinach

Arugula



Shownotes

Nathan's background in research and studies regarding Nitric Oxide (NO)



00:03:34 About the Nitric Oxide molecule. What it is and why it is important for cardiovascular health.

00:05:40 Things that influence our natural production of NO

00:07:35 The importance of NO for human health, history of NO.



Loss of enzymatic production causes loss of NO production.

Beetroot juice does not equal nitrate! (12:00)

300-400mg of NO is standardized dosage

Why most people cannot utilize NO, which is a major problem.



00:22:30 Technology that overcomes the limitations of nitrate supplements

00:27:00 Who benefits from NO?



Athletes

General population

Loss of NO predicts CVD by a decade!



00:31:00 First sign of NO deficiency is erectile dysfunction in men and women

00:36:00 Differences in content of nitrates in organic and traditionally grown vegetables

00:39:30 Why people on a Standard American Diet get only 1/3 of recommended dosage

00:40:41 Female Sexual dysfunctions - arousal disorder, inability to orgasm

therefore the structure of training is important and you need to get the most out of your session

00:43:13 Athletic performance enhancement with NO .



99% of the supplements are ineffective - i.e. a waste of your money!

Look for products that have a patent

Look for clinical trials on the product, not only on substance used in the product.

is the company or the scientist behind the product a published author? Have they published any research on the topic?



00:53:30 NO in relation to altitude training. Is NO the secret of Ethiopian runners?

01:00:00 Top three vegetables with highest NO content: kale, spinach and arugula
