Nitric Oxide in Health and Physical Performance: Considering the Molecule 2 Nitrooxy Ethyl 2 Amino 3 Methylbutanoate

Richard J. Bloomer

Abstract


Nitric oxide (NO) is an important signaling molecule that has received considerable attention in recent years for its beneficial impact on a variety of health related outcomes. The effects range from improving various aspects of circulatory health to aiding exercise performance. Although NO is produced naturally within the body, methods have been proposed to increase circulating NO within humans. Most notably, the performance of regular exercise, the use of pharmaceutical agents, and the use of nutritional ingredients has been studied. A newly developed molecule known as 2 nitrooxy ethyl 2 amino 3 methylbutanoate (VEEN™) is now being studied as a next generation NO agent. This paper discusses the importance of NO in human health, with a particular focus on methods to increase NO. Attention is given to VEEN™, highlighting the studies performed to date using this molecule.
