AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- As a result of breakthroughs in scientific research, Neogenis Labs has announced key recommendations for restoring a natural process involving Nitric Oxide -- representing a new pathway to optimize health. Thirty years after its discovery, key researchers received the Nobel Prize in 1998 for demonstrating Nitric Oxide's critical role in cardiovascular health. Today, a number of diseases are characterized by Nitric Oxide insufficiency. Restoring...

Research from the University of Exeter has revealed taking a dietary supplement to boost nitric oxide in the body can significantly boost stamina during high-intensity exercise. The study has important implications for athletes, as results suggest that taking the supplement can allow people to exercise up to 20% longer and could produce a 1-2% improvement in race times. This comes on the back of previous research from Exeter which showed that the high nitrate content of beetroot juice, which...
