Can nitric oxide promote normal blood pressure?
Emerging research suggests that maintaining appropriate nitric oxide levels in the body helps promote normal blood pressure..
When should I ask my doctor about Nitric Oxide?
As with any nutritional supplement, check with your pharmacist or physician when adding to your regimen. However, many practitioners are just now about nitric oxide benefits and about products like Neo40® daily® designed to help restore levels.
There are medical studies and other resources that offer the current studies, theories and facts about nitric oxide on our website. We include those, and follow new research studies closely because we want to provide the best information for consumers and medical professionals. If your health care provider isn’t familiar with the latest studies about N-O, you may want to share those links with them.
What foods can I eat to increase my Nitric Oxide production?
Many foods are rich in nitric oxide, such as spinach, nuts, artichokes, beets and certain green teas. Lifestyle modifications including exercise, deep breathing and healthy diet are the best ways to enhance nitric oxide production. However, one of the known facts about nitric oxide is that it gets harder to consume enough of these nitrate-rich foods in order to compensate for the declining nitric oxide production levels of your body as you age..
Why have I never heard of Nitric Oxide before?
As molecules go, the discovery of nitric oxide occurred fairly recently. First identified as a signaling molecule in 1988, nitric oxide, commonly referred to as N-O, is a gas that consists of just one nitrogen atom and one oxygen atom.
But despite its small size, it is one of the most important signaling molecules in the human body. In 1992 nitric oxide was proclaimed the "Molecule of the Year" by the American scientific community.
Why are people talking about nitric oxide now?
Scientists studying this molecule have found that nitric oxide helps maintain normal blood pressure, heart function and is a main regulator of brain and digestive function. But until recently, most of this information was only shared within the scientific community. Now with major media outlets picking up the story, and sharing some of the over 100,000 published research papers, the public interest in growing. Initially, most people who had heard of nitric oxide know it from bodybuilding, workout or erectile dysfunction supplements. Now as new applications increase, so does public awareness.
Are more studies on nitric oxide being done?
Yes. Once the method for applying the 1988 Nobel Prize discovery of nitric oxide’s role to health concerns, the studies increased rapidly. In addition to the over 120,00 published studies, countless more studies are now being conducted. Even the government has joined in, with over 200 federal and state-funded nitric oxide clinical trials currently underway. Every day, the known facts about nitric oxide benefits increase, as its impact on different aspects of health is probed.
Why is your product so expensive?
Actually, in terms of what Neo40® daily does immediately, and over time, to support circulatory and hearth health, it is an exceptional value.
But to answer your question:
- 12 years of research, patents
- Continuing clinical trials on Neo 40 for substantiation of its claims
- Blister packaging for extreme freshness (very expensive)
- Quick dissolving tab for optimal delivery
- Continuous quality control
- Carefully sourced ingredients.
Neo40® daily is also held to an unusually and consistently high standard. The majority of related supplements on the market are expensive also, but without any of the research behind then. It only makes sense to select the one with the science behind it.
What is the difference between Neo40 Daily and SuperBeets?
The Neo40 is our most potent NO delivery system that overcomes all the body's deficiencies and inefficiencies for producing nitric oxide. It is our patented 2-phase technology that delivers NO immediately as the lozenge is dissolving during the first phase but also contains all the components to restore endogenous NO production in the second phase that occurs hours later.
SuperBeets also uses our patented technology but relies on each person’s body to convert to NO by providing the substrates for bacterial conversion. SuperBeets product starts working within 35 minutes and as long as the enterosalivary circuit is functional in the folks who are taking it, it is very effective at restoring NO. It is meant to be used as a daily nutritional support to provide the body with the vegetable substrates so the body can maintain NO production. The lozenge contains the entire system for generating NO without relying on individual patients' systems.
IS NEO40® DAILY SAFE TO TAKE WITH...?
Does Neo40® have any side effects or interactions with medication?
Currently, there are no known contra-indications with any medications, nor are there any known side effects. If you have any medical questions, or concerns, please contact your health care practitioner.
Can I take Neo40® daily with my prescription drugs?
Ask your doctor or pharmacist. It is always important to seek medical advice before adding supplements to your regimen, especially if you are currently taking prescription drugs. However, many medical professionals are just now learning the benefits of nitric oxide and becoming aware of products that help restore levels. There are resources on the Neogenis® Labs website dedicated to informing the medical community about the latest research.
Do I still need to take my prescription drugs if I am taking Neo40® daily?
Always consult your physician or pharmacist before discontinuing or reducing any prescription drugs.
What if I'm taking cholesterol medication, like Crestor? Can adding Neo40® daily help?
As with any nutritional supplement check with your physician or pharmacist when adding to your regimen. Neo40® daily is made of botanicals and other ingredients that help your body produce nitric oxide. Only your health care provider can review the nitric oxide effects and determine what is best for you.
Can I take Neo40® daily with other supplements?
The best answer we can give is “It depends.” Because different people react differently to medications and supplements, only your health care provider can let you know what will work safely for you.
Do I still need my other vitamins?
Most likely, as Neo40® daily isn’t a multivitamin. But this should be discussed with your healthcare practitioner before making that choice.
DOSAGE & WHAT TO EXPECT
Should I take one or two a day?
Every person's body chemistry is somewhat different, so we recommend that you start by taking Neo40® daily twice per day, monitoring your nitric oxide level frequently. Nitric Oxide Indicator Strips™ are the first and only saliva indicator strip that measures your body’s ability to produce nitric oxide. When you are able to maintain an "optimal" reading over a period of several days you may reduce your dose to one per day and continue monitoring to confirm you have restored your nitric oxide level.
My Neo40® daily fast-melt lozenges seem to be turning slightly brown. Is this normal?
Like many dietary supplements, Neo40® daily is EXTREMELY sensitive to heat and humidity. Make sure you store your Neo40® daily in a cool, dry environment. However, the change in color will not impact effectiveness of the product and you may continue to use it..
There has been some clumping with my container of SuperBeets powder. Is this normal?
Yes. Dried Beet juice powder is very sensitive to moisture and heat, so refrain from exposing the container to heat/sunlight for long periods of time. When finished using, close the container tightly and store in a cool, dry area or possibly even a refrigerator. Clumping of the powder does not diminish the efficacy of the product, as clumps will still dissolve when properly mixed with water. For ease of mixing, use a utensil to stir or break up the powder prior to scooping out.
How will I know it's working?
Use Nitric Oxide Indicator Strips™ to track your nitric oxide levels. You may also notice an increase in energy, better sleep patterns and enhanced mental acuity.
How long will it take to see results?
This varies by person. The length of time it takes to replenish your nitric oxide levels and sustain them can vary dramatically. It depends on a lot of factors, including your age, activity level, diet, other health issues and a host of other variables.
It makes me feel a little burp-y. Is that normal?
Yes, it can be for some. Nitric oxide is a gas. Neo40® daily is helping your body produce it, which can create excess gas initially. For those who do experience this effect it is usually mild. In fact, most people who experience any burping at all only experience one mild burp shortly after the lozenge has dissolved.
My tongue feels sensitive after the Neo40® daily dissolves. Is that OK?
Yes. This is not unusual, especially if you are taking Neo40® daily twice a day. We recommend that you move the lozenge across your tongue and around in your mouth as it dissolves. If you still experience some tenderness, you can chew the lozenge for faster absorption.
Will Neo40® daily keep me awake at night?
No, but since there are B Vitamins in Neo40® daily, which can improve energy levels in some people, it could make you more alert at bedtime. If you experience sleeplessness take it earlier in the evening. But if you're taking Neo40® daily twice/day, be sure your two doses are still 12 hours apart.
What is Neo40® daily made of?
Neo40® daily is a proprietary, patented combination of products and functional foods that have been scientifically shown to help the body produce nitric oxide. Each tablet contains Vitamins B12 and C, blended with our proprietary formula for boosting nitric oxide levels.
NITRIC OXIDE AND WORKOUTS
How can Neo40® daily help with my workouts?
Neo40® daily, although designed to restore nitric oxide production for overall circulation support, is very effective as a pre-workout product. In fact, our tests comparing to a leading L-arginine-based workout supplement showed that Neo40® daily facilitated significantly more nitric oxide output. Neo40® daily is designed to enhance nitric oxide production, creating a system for production when oxygen is limited as it is during workouts.
Additionally, we have preliminary data indicating that taking our product before sub-maximal exercise leads to less lactic acid production in the blood and therefore better recovery after workout.
NEOGENIS® NITRIC OXIDE INDICATOR STRIPS
What exactly is measured by the Nitric Oxide Indicator Strips™?
We know that once nitric oxide is produced by the endothelial cells or other cells in the body, it is oxidized to nitrite and nitrate. The Nitric Oxide Indicator Strips™ measure the amount of nitric oxide that is recirculated through the saliva. This measure represents the total systemic bioavailability of nitric oxide in your body at that time.
How often should I use them?
We recommend using every day when you first begin taking Neo40® daily. This will help you track your nitric oxide restoration process. You can also use before and after intense physical exercise or at a set time each day. Monitoring your nitric oxide levels before and after taking your nitric oxide supplements will allow you to see the change. But do wait at least 15-30 minutes after taking a Neo40® daily lozenge before use.
Can I stop taking it when my level stays "optimal"?
You can continue to reduce your dose as long as your level stays consistent. However, most adults over 40 are unable to maintain an "optimal" reading without supplementation. Further, as you age your ability to produce Nitric Oxide declines dramatically. Thus, it's likely that your level will not stay "optimal" as you get older.
My indicator strip continues to show “low”, is your product not working?
The following can adversely affect the accuracy of our strips:
- Taking antibiotics
- Using mouthwash
- Testing when your saliva is diluted
There are also some people that do not have the proper bacteria in their mouth or their stomach to enable an accurate reading. If you test your level after taking a lozenge (as soon as your saliva is clear) and you are still depleted, you are likely one of these people.
ORDERING AND MAILERS
When I make a purchase over the phone, through the website or send in an order from a mailer, am I automatically enrolled in an auto-ship program?
No, we do not automatically enroll any orders in auto-ship. You must specifically ask to be enrolled in our auto-ship programs.
I sent in an order via mail over a week ago, where is my product?
