Nitric oxide. When broken down it’s a simple molecule, but one that has great impact on heart and cardiovascular health. Produced by every cell in your body, nitric oxide production is directly related to elevated energy levels, workout capacity, mood, libido, cognition performance, even life expectancy. It has this tremendous effect on heart and everyday health by relaxing the inner muscles of blood vessels throughout the body. This relaxation process allows blood vessels to widen and promotes their flexibility, resulting in greater blood flow and oxygen and nutrient distribution throughout the body.
While nitric oxide is said to be one of the most important discoveries in the history of cardiovascular medicine, maintaining optimal—even adequate—levels of this miracle molecule is a much more arduous task for your body as you age.
One of our primary objectives when developing CORE+ was to ensure it consisted of a blend of natural ingredients that work with the body to boost nitric oxide production organically. For us, CORE+ had to be rich in clean nutrients and compounds from plants, roots, and other natural resources that have been studied and positively confirmed to increase nitric oxide production.
Below, we breakdown a few of CORE+ primary ingredients that help to effectively boost nitric oxide production.
L-Arginine & L-Citrulline
L-Arginine and L-Citrulline are building block compounds for nitric oxide production. Sourced from common fruits, vegetables and legumes, both are essential amino acids. When ingested, L-Arginine is synthesized into nitric oxide, while L-Citrulline naturally converts into L-Arginine. In addition to transforming into nitric oxide, L-Arginine also sparks the production of beneficial growth hormones that stimulate natural energy and increases performance, stamina, and strength. Consuming L-Citrulline is known to boost greater arginine levels.
Fermented Beet Root Powder Juice
Two of the principal compounds the body needs to produce nitric oxide are nitrates and nitrites, and beets just so happen to be one of the most nitrate-rich vegetables on the planet. When nitrates are consumed, they react with the body’s enzymes which are then converted into nitric oxide. A super-charged superfood, beets also contain antioxidant properties and powerful amino acids called betalain that help improve muscle endurance and strength. It’s from betalain where beets, of all types, get their rich colors from.
For CORE+ we use a proprietary fermented beet root powder juice and do so for a couple of important reasons.
First, oral hygiene products, particularly mouthwash, kills good oral bacteria, rendering the nitric oxide-boosting benefits of supplements, fruits, and vegetables less effective. CORE+ is formulated with a specialty fermented beet root powder that contains pre-converted nitrates to nitrites. Consuming our exclusive beet root formulation means the moment CORE+ mingles with your mouth, nitric oxide begins to generate and circulate throughout the body.
Second, consuming the probiotics and enzymes that flourish in fermented beet root supports the immune system, digestive system, and gut microbiome which is known to aid cardiovascular health.
The relaxing properties of CORE+’s organically sourced CBD isolate maximizes nitric oxide production and greater blood flow. When CBD interacts with endocannabinoid receptors located throughout the cardiovascular system it stimulates internal balance helping to minimize cardiovascular and heart stress. These benefits create ideal conditions for nitric oxide production and helps optimize the flow of nutrient and oxygen-rich blood throughout your body and to your organs.
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
Vitamin C plays many valuable roles in elevating well-being. One role that often goes unnoticed is how Vitamin C accelerates the synthase of enzymes into nitric oxide. Vitamin C, when bound with glutathione, also facilitates a time-based release of nitric oxide so that nitric oxide production is balanced. Vitamin C also contains antioxidant properties that help to block free radical molecules that are harmful to cells and cell structures. Since the body cannot make its own Vitamin C, it’s essential to supplement this valuable nutrient from clean, reliable sources like the ascorbic acid component in CORE+.
One of the planet’s most abundant natural flavonoids, Quercetin is found commonly in a variety of plants including grapefruit, leafy greens, beans, onions, and pomegranate. Classified as a polyphenol or micronutrient, Quercetin aids cardiovascular health by inhibiting LDL oxidation and limiting arterial plaque build-up. High in antioxidant properties, Quercetin also helps protect the health of cells and cell membranes.
Niacin is an essential B3 vitamin found in many foods like nuts, green vegetables, and beans. A versatile vitamin, niacin strengthens cardiovascular function by supporting the management of cholesterol levels, helping to curb oxidative stress, and dilating blood vessels for greater blood flow.
Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant produced naturally within the body. Like nitric oxide, CoQ10 production declines with age. Routinely supplementing with a clean version of CoQ10 helps improve heart function and aids cellular growth and maintenance.
Astaxanthin, sourced from algae, provides natural pigments for its carriers. It’s the reason lobsters are red and salmon are pink. For humans, astaxanthin provides many health benefits. Astaxanthin is known to have greater antioxidant protection than beta-carotene and Vitamin C. Astaxanthin has been proven to improve blood flow, supports optimal arterial health, and helps the body to use healthy fatty acids more efficiently.
Vitamin D is well-known for its support of bone and immune system health, but it also plays an important part in sustaining heart and cardiovascular health. Studies have found that supplementing Vitamin D supports weight-based diets that improve heart function and helps minimize heart issues.
