What is Nitric Oxide?

Nitric Oxide is a vasodilator, meaning it increases blood flow throughout the body, which allows it to function more effectively.

Furthermore, Nitric Oxide is a compound naturally made within the body.  It’s the end result of a conversion process that takes dietary nitrates and turns them into a useful chemical in order to help regulate a number of functions, including: 

  • Performance –

     Nitric Oxide is beneficial to overall performance and endurance. It is essential for improving muscle mass and aiding in recovery, as well as alleviating various forms of pain and arthritis
  • Immune system –

     Nitric Oxide helps the immune system’s cells communicate effectively and react more efficiently in the presence of invaders and toxins, and is used by white blood cells to kill viruses, fungi, bacteria, and other pathogens.
  • Circulatory system –

     Nitric Oxide is effective for helping the body dilate and constrict blood vessels, which improves blood pressure, circulation, and overall cardiovascular health.
  • Healing –

     The body uses Nitric Oxide in large amounts in order to heal from stress, injury, or other ailments. It encourages bones and wounds to repair, aids in the healing of ulcers, and can even decrease post-surgery healing time.

How can supplements utilize Nitric Oxide pathways?

T.H.E. Equine Edge utilizes the innovative Nitric Oxide delivery system, which is based in part on Nobel Prize-winning research, N.P.S.  (Neurotransmitter Production Support) technology. 

We use N.P.S. technology as a delivery platform that enables absorption and utilization of amino acids. N.P.S. is designed to increase production of selected neurotransmitters, including the use of Nitric Oxide pathways. By consuming products using N.P.S. technology, the body is able to use relatively small quantities of nutrients to increase neurotransmitter synthesis through a synergistic effect.  This delivery method enables the natural ingredients in our products to be more efficient and effective as it is absorbed in the body.

All supplements produced by T.H.E. Equine Edge are designed to efficiently and safely promote Nitric Oxide production for up to 6 hours via Nitric Oxide precursors (arginine and other cofactors), flavonoids regulators, Nitric Oxide synthases enhancing elements, and network antioxidants (to minimize free radical-related oxidative stress). ​This makes our supplements highly effective and naturally safe for your horse to consume. 

Need more Nitric Oxide?

In addition to utilizing N.P.S. technology in all of our formulas, T.H.E. Equine Edge has created a NitrOxide® Supplement, which is a highly concentrated formula containing vitamins, amino acids, minerals and herbs to help your horse’s blood flow system. Therefore, NitrOxide® is the supplement we recommend for laminitic horses and horses with anhidrosis or any other blood flow issue. Nitric Oxide naturally occurs in the body, but our product, NitrOxide®, helps your horse’s body produce more with this extra needed boost. 

NitrOxide® Helps Your Horse Heal Faster

NitrOxide® can aid with injury recovery when paired with our NutraWOUND supplement. NitrOxide® helps increase blood flow while NutraWound helps connective tissue repair and support for rapid healing of wounds. Increased blood flow is important in the recovery process from certain health issues such as laminitis, a debilitating disease affecting the layers of tissue inside the hoof. Our NitrOxide® Supplement is designed to bring blood flow to the lower extremities to help with recovery and regain rotation in more severe cases. NitrOxide® can also help with Anhidrosis - the horse’s inability to sweat after working out or competing. Increased blood flow helps cool the horse down.
