Test your current Nitric Oxide level

This Patent Pending Nitric Oxide Indicator Strip is a simple way to understand your body's current ability to produce Nitric Oxide. We recommend you test on an empty stomach and that you test regularly.

Why Test?

The Patent Pending Nitric Oxide Indicator Strips help you monitor your body's Nitric Oxide status using your saliva. Test results are measured by comparing your test strip to four color-coded indicators. Take the test and stay informed about what your body's level of this critical molecule is in your system.

N-O Diagnostic - an Indispensable Tool

Unhealthful diets and lifestyles, along with ever-changing environmental factors, exert major influences on physiology and contribute to declining health trends. Case in point - the effect they exert on nitric oxide homeostasis.

It may be argued that one singular event, the inability to produce nitric oxide (N-O), is the decisive factor that increases the risk for chronic conditions, particularly those associated with aging. If this is true, as supported by the literature, then developing strategies for N-O detection and technologies designed to restore N-O bioavailability is absolutely essential for halting the advancement of cardiovascular, metabolic, immune and cognitive dysfunction.

Studies show that by the age of 40, most adults lose 50% of their N-O production. For years scientists and physicians had investigated L-arginine supplementation as a means to enhance N-O production. However, patients with endothelial dysfunction, by definition, are essentially unable to convert L-arginine to N-O; and therefore, this strategy has failed in clinical trials. As the science moves forward, what has clearly emerged is the understanding that:

  1. there are 2 complementary pathways for N-O production in the body and
  2. as the L-arginine pathway becomes dysfunctional with age, the nitrate to nitrite to nitric oxide pathway can be invigorated to compensate.

Diagnostic salivary indicator strips instant N-O evaluation

The recognition of the enterosalivary circulation of nitrate and its sequential reduction to nitrite and N-O, offers an approach to assess individual nitric oxide activity. It has been demonstrated that plasma nitrite reflects changes in N-O production through both endogenous pathways and, thus, provides an accurate measurement of people at risk for conditions related to low N-O such as cardiovascular events. Plasma nitrite levels progressively decrease with increasing cardiovascular risk load, indicating a loss of N-O production. Nitrite also represents an important storage form of N-O in blood and tissues that can be readily reduced to N-O via the nitrate-nitrite-nitric oxide pathway.

Most molecules present in plasma can also be detected in saliva. Several papers validate the correlation of blood nitrite levels with salivary nitrite levels. Because a saliva nitrite level can function as a surrogate biomarker for nitric oxide, an “instant-read” salivary nitrite indicator strip provides the information necessary to determine the need for therapeutic or dietary intervention, in conditions associated with N-O insufficiency.

Saliva is a diagnostic fluid that offers obvious advantages over blood collection. Saliva testing permits measurement of minute concentrations of biologically active substances such as nitrite and offers a non-invasive, affordable, accurate, easy-to-obtain, and safer approach for screening N-O bioavailability. The strips are particularly useful for performing continuous assessment over hours, days, weeks, and years.

The patent pending N-O indicator strips are easy to use. The colorimetric strips increase compliance with supplementation as well as encouraging N-O supportive diet and lifestyle changes.

N-O is involved in virtually every organ system within the body and a deficiency in N-O production or availability has been shown to be a hallmark of many chronic conditions. Without question, the use of the diagnostic indicator strips for N-O evaluation and monitoring is the best approach available for supporting the quest for optimum health.
