Red Beet Root Extract- 45mg
As a source of nitrate, ingesting beet root provides a natural means of increasing nitric oxide (NO) availability in the blood stream, which improves blood pressure and improves the function of the endothelium (or lining) of blood vessels. Increased blood flow into the penis increases erectile firmness.
Beet root is an exceptionally rich source of anti-oxidant compounds which protect cellular components from oxidative injury. They suppress radical formation and directly scavenge reactive oxygen and nitrogen species. This protects against oxidative damage to DNA, lipid and protein structures. The antioxidant capacity of beet root juice is higher than almost all fruit and vegetable juices.
Beet root, a natural NO donor, has been explored as a nutritional approach to preserve or restore endothelial function. Because NO mediates many of the endothelium’s functions, a depletion of NO availability that occurs with aging has been singled out as the principal cause of endothelial dysfunction. Replacing NO slows and in some cases reverses the aging process of blood vessels.
