Overview

Provides energy for optimal performance in strenuous exercise.

Assists in providing energy during times of strenuous exercise.

Endurance athletes are realising the scientific benefits of consuming dietary nitrates, which increases natural nitric oxide (NO) production by the body.[1,2]

Nitrates are obtainable in the diet via the consumption of certain vegetables such as beetroot, spinach, green leafy vegetables and turnips (although this can depend in various growing conditions such as fertilisers used, location, soil conditions, light, water and carbon dioxide concentrations).

OxyStorm® red spinach leaf extract features:[6]

standardisation to a minimum of 9% inorganic nitrates (180mg/serve)
one of the highest source of dietary nitrates
100% water-soluble
no oxalic acid or oxalate content
neutral pH
no sugar content.

Nitrates
Nitric oxide works in the body by relaxing and widening blood vessels, therefore involved in blood flow, and delivery of nutrients and oxygen, to organs and tissues.[7]

Nitrates also have a greater affinity for areas of the body that may be poorly oxygenated due to the nitrites (NO2-) converting into nitric oxide in de-oxygenated blood. This means the active metabolite of nitrates concentrates where it is most needed, thus involved in energy production in the mitochondria of the muscle cells during intense physical performance.[7]

After ingestion, nitrate is rapidly absorbed in the upper gastrointestinal tract and the bioavailability is 100%. Circulating nitrate is actively extracted by the salivary glands and recreated in saliva. In the mouth, nitrate is partly converted to nitrite by nitrate-reducing commensal bacteria. Swallowed nitrate can then enter the systemic circulation thereby creating enterosalivary circulation of these anions.

Nitrate can be further reduced in blood and tissues to form bioactive NO.[2-4]

  • Contains Oxystorm® red spinach extract standardised to a minimum of 9% inorganic nitrates (or 180mg per serve).
  • Two Nitrate Endurance Gels provides 360mg of nitrate, while you need 500mL of beetroot juice to get 326mg of nitrate.
  • Each 30mL gel packet delivers a concentrated carbohydrate blend of glucose and maltodextrin, in a form that is easily consumed and quickly digested.
  • May assist in supplementing the diet with an energy source for training.
  • Provides a large fuel boost, useful before and during sustained strenuous exercise.
  • Assists in supplementing the diet with an energy source beneficial for training.
  • Nitrate energy gel is easy to take and is designed to ensure a standardised amount of nitrate per sachet. After ingestion, nitrates are rapidly absorbed and the bio-availability is 100%.[2-5]
  • Can be used by performance athletes, body builders, sports people and people who exercise regularly.

Serving Suggestion

2-3 hours prior to exercise, take 1 gel (30mL).

3 days before an event, for loading, take 1 gel (30mL).
