Vander Kraats The Nitric Factor
The Nitric Factor offers a range of active ingredients to support natural nitric oxide synthesis to promote healthy circulation and blood pressure. Vander Kraats Nitric Factor may be taken daily to support peripheral circulation and overall cardiovascular health, or before exercise to promote muscle fullness and vascularity.
- Boosts Nitric Oxide.
- Enhances "Muscle Pumps".
- Blood Pressure Management.
- Supports Healthy Circulation.
- Erectile Dysfunction Support.
Vander Kraats The Nitric Factor provides key nutrients to support natural nitric oxide synthesis. Nitric oxide (NO) is a natural gas produced in the body that helps to regulate activity of the smooth muscles that surround the blood vessels. Therefore, these muscles control blood vessel dilation and contraction. And of course, when our blood vessels are dilated, given that we have the same amount of fluid inside, the pressure within that vessel decreases. Hence, NO supportive supplements are useful for reducing blood pressure and supporting peripheral circulation.
For this reason also, weights lifters of gym enthusiasts may take a NO boosting supplement before exercise in order to enhance the sensation of muscle fullness, which may also be called a "good pump". Vander Kraats The Nitric Factor contains Arginine AKG, which is essentially the amino acid arginine bound to alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG). AKG is actually a constituent of the krebs cycle—or citric acid cycle—and may therefore assist with natural ATP production.
Arginine is the basic building block for NO, acted upon by the enzyme nitric oxide synthase, which makes the conversion from arginine to NO. Citrulline is another amino acid that has the ability to increase blood arginine levels and nitric oxide, most likely better than arginine itself, and is included in this formulation as well1.
Another intersting nutrient found in Vander Kraats The Nitric Factor is glycine propionyl-L-carnitine (GPLC). This specialised nutrient has been shown to elevate blood nitric oxide levels2. In addition, R-alpha lipoic acid has been added, which is the natural isomer produced by the human body. Vander Kraats The Nitric Factor is a unique formulation, designed to assist with a range of health maladies that are all linked back to the body's very own natural gas—Nitric Oxide.
