Universal energy currency of the living world is mainly synthesized by the mitochondria of the cell , the power house, that occupy 20% of the cell volume which utilizes oxygen . The energy produced is exported to all parts of the body to provide energy for the cellular work. Economy of energy conversion is very crucial during vigorous exercises or else it may lead to oxygen debt. In a recent study (Subramanian et al.,2016)it was observed that Oxystorm can deliver high nitrate and enhance nitric oxide levels in the body (Graph 1). Our clinical studies have shown that Oxystorm® enhances the nitric oxide by converting nitrate to nitrite. Nitric oxide generated from Oxystorm® enhances VO2 and maximize the energy produced and thus reduces extreme fatigue and physical weakness during strenuous exercise or physical activity.
Nitric oxide has been identified as an important endothelium derived relaxing factor, which is released from the endothelium and results in vascular smooth muscle relaxation (Palmer et al., 1987). The authors have also reported that the increased level of nitric oxide is due to the high level of nitrite in saliva (Graph 2)
Fig1: Plasma concentrations of total nitrate and nitrite (NOx; a) and nitrite only (b) at baseline and 30- and 65- to 75-min following ingestion of a red spinach extract (RSE; filled circles) and placebo (PBO; open circles). Data are presented as mean absolute values in μM concentrations ± SD. When a significant time × condition interaction was observed, post hoc tests were performed using Student’s paired t tests. *,**Significantly different from baseline within condition (P ≤ 0.05 and 0.01, respectively). †,††Significantly different between condition at the same time point (P ≤ 0.05 and 0.01, respectively)
