How Nitric Oxide Supports Whole-Body Health
In the late 1990s, Nobel-Prize-award-winning research revealed that Nitric Oxide (NO) acts as a critical signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system. This research was only the beginning of a waterfall of research on the importance of nitrates and Nitric Oxide on total-body health.
From the tops of our heads to the tips of our toes, blood flow is the key to oxygen and nutrient delivery throughout the body. That’s why restoring and maintaining adequate Nitric Oxide (NO) levels in the body is critical.
Without healthy blood flow, our systems and tissues suffer and lose function — putting the body at risk for a myriad of health problems.
Nitric Oxide Decreases Naturally as We Age
Nitric Oxide (NO) production rapidly declines after age 40, and continues to decline. However, dietary nitrates found in foods like beets and leafy greens, and in supplements like Berkeley Life, can help optimize NO production as we age.

Berkeley Life is being recommended by top healthcare providers across the country. Our products and innovation are driven by industry experts who offer unique perspectives on NO and its applications in specific areas of patient care, including heart health, hormone balance, cognitive health, sexual function, and more.
Peer-reviewed research shows that dietary nitrates are a superior method of Nitric Oxide (NO) supplementation over arginine, citrulline, or nitrite. Given a healthy oral microbiome, nitrates can be converted into nitrite to support NO levels at all ages.
Dietary nitrates come from nitrate rich vegetables and beetroot – or in Berkeley Life’s easy dietary nitrate supplement. Dietary nitrates are converted to nitrite in our saliva, then used as needed by the body to create Nitric Oxide.
Products that supplement Nitric Oxide production through arginine and citrulline are supplementing through the Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS) pathway. Unfortunately, the NOS enzyme responsible for conversion is subject to uncoupling and can be easily rendered ineffective when subjected to stress, medications, poor diet, lack of exercise, and more. This breakdown in the NOS enzyme contributes to the loss of Nitric Oxide that we experience as we age.
Berkeley Life delivers dietary nitrates to support Nitric Oxide function. Dietary nitrates are a proven and reliable way to provide Nitric Oxide support independent of the NOS enzyme’s functionality.
A Foundation of Total Health
Berkeley Life Supplements feature a clinically effective, two capsule daily dose of quality dietary nitrates that are proven to support Nitric Oxide (NO) production to increase NO levels. Our products are backed by peer-reviewed clinical research – and we work with industry-leading clinicians who guide us in all areas of product development.
