Improve Gut Health

The health of our gastrointestinal system is important for longevity and well-being. Gut health is dependent upon a delicate biome and mucosal balance. Nitric Oxide plays a critical role in keeping this system adequately regulated and balanced.

Maintaining Gut Balance with Nitric Oxide

Nitric oxide plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy gut by promoting the nitrate to nitrite to nitric oxide pathway. Dysbiosis, or disruption of the intestinal microbial ecosystem, can have a significant impact on physical and mental health due to the gut-brain connection. A nitrate-rich diet can help prevent dysbiosis, promote gastrointestinal health, and maintain homeostasis by supporting the gut-brain axis. Additionally, nitrates and their metabolites are linked to healthy oral, gut, and intestinal microbiota, and may also modulate inflammatory and immune pathways.

Gut-brain connection

Nitric Oxide helps to scavenge oxidative stress and support the microbiome in the mouth and in the gut

Immunity and defense

The mucosal layer in our gut provides protection and defense against pathogens. Nitric Oxide helps regulate mucus secretion, strengthening this critical barrier.

Optimal gut function

Nitric Oxide helps support tight junction proteins in the gut, which optimizes gut function and may help leaky gut symptoms

Microbiome Support

The oral microbiome can affect the gut microbiome, and changes in oral flora can lead to an imbalance in gut flora and increase gut vulnerability. There is a significant overlap in bacteria between the oral cavity and large intestine, and our eating and swallowing habits constantly seed the intestinal tract. Nitrates have been found to increase beneficial bacteria and decrease harmful bacteria in the mouth, which can help prevent or reduce bacterial dysbiosis and promote oral and gut health.

Once-a-day Gut Support

Two capsules of Berkeley Life’s Nitric Oxide Foundation once a day provides an effective dose of dietary nitrate for sustained Nitric Oxide support throughout the day. Nitric Oxide test strips validate product efficacy after 90 minutes.
