Nitrates (NO3) are rapidly converted into nitrites (NO2) within the body (by bacteria in the mouth and gut) and are naturally found in vegetables.
The blood pressure and athletic performance benefits are likely mediated through the metabolic conversion of dietary nitrate (NO3) to biologically active nitrite (NO2) and then to nitric oxide.
A nitrate naturally occurs in fruits, vegetables and grains, and this natural occurrence prevents the formation of nitrosamines, the harmful part of this equation.
Vegetables are actually the biggest dietary source of nitrates... by far. The amount you get from processed meat is small compared to vegetables.
Foods that are naturally rich in nitrates can provide a variety of health benefits, but some nitrate is converted to nitrite in your body, which can form nitrosamines and cause negative effects
Here is a list of top foods high in nitrates to boost nitric oxide:
#3 Swiss Chard
#5 Chinese Cabbage
#13 Bok Choy
Thank you. This was our video with top foods rich in nitrates to improve nitric oxide levels..

When you eat the whole food remember that nature and the human body knows how to breakdown and siphon off the benefits and absorbed into the body. Taking beet powder/or man made nitrates might be dangerous for consumption is not taken as a whole food. The human body is a genius machine that we still know so little about as to breakdown and absorption so to be safe by eating whole foods one never has to be worried about what this so called biologist promotes here. Doubt he a biologist at all.
Wow your dumb nitrates can't turn into nitrites not how science works you cant deoxidize a single oxygen molecule, and btw bacteria turn nitrite into nitrate, stop fooling people for views, like wtf the only way to turn vegetable and fruit to nitrate is by putting in aerobic water, and wait 3 weeks for all of it to be turned into ammonia, later it will turn into nitrite,then multiple weeks later it turns into nitrate you can't turn nitrate into nitrite, ever it's absolutely impossible it breaks laws of biology, (Darwin's 4th law and freddericks 3rd law)
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
