Nitric oxide. When broken down it’s a simple molecule, but one that has great impact on heart and cardiovascular health. Produced in every cell in your body, nitric oxide production is directly related to elevated energy levels, work capacity, mood, libido, activity 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 Nitric Oxide Booster + Hemp 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’s 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.
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 ingested, they react with the body’s enzymes and convert to nitrites, which are then converted into nitric oxide. A super-charged superfood, beets also contain antioxidant properties and powerful amino acids called betaine that help improve muscle endurance and strength.
The relaxing properties of CORE’s organic CBD isolate maximize 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 help optimize the flow of nutrient and oxygen-rich blood throughout your body and to your organs.
The main reason popular studies show that wine can improve heart health is because of resveratrol. A micronutrient (polyphenol), resveratrol is found naturally in grapes, peanuts, and certain berries, like blueberries and raspberries. In CORE, resveratrol’s potent antioxidant properties support circulatory health and may help balance blood pressure.
One of the planet’s most abundant natural flavonoids, quercetin is found commonly in a variety of plants including grapefruit, leafy greens, beans, onions, black tea, pomegranate, and capers. 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.
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
Vitamin C helps to relax blood vessels leading to greater blood flow and healthier blood pressure. Vitamin C also contains antioxidant properties that help to block free radical molecules that are harmful to cells and cell structures. Because your body cannot produce or store Vitamin C, it’s essential to obtain it from clean foods, drinks, and supplements.
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.
