There’s an old aphorism attributed to baseball great Yogi Berra: “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”
The New York Yankees legend said it while giving directions to his old friend, Joe Garagiola. He certainly was not talking about nutrition to improve nitric oxide production.
But thanks to the development of two innovative supplement formulations, Berra’s statement could easily apply there too.
Since 1998, when Robert Furchgott, Louis Ignarro, and Ferid Murad won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of nitric oxide’s role as a cardiovascular signaling molecule, researchers and clinicians alike have recognized the importance of nitric oxide (NO) in maintaining human health.
Though most people associate it with the vasculature, NO is also made by the gut epithelium, and by cells within the immune system.
