Dr Jay here and on this episode of NoxNews we are going to discuss the difference between arginine vs beetroot powder in terms of nitric oxide production. This actually came up by way of a text from a friend in Wyoming. She has had people asking her questions about commercials for super beet powders lately. She says they are wanting to know how is it that beets create nitric oxide and also the difference between beets and arginine. For starters, both beets and arginine as well as citrulline create nitric oxide. In fact spinach and other vegetables with nitrates also product nitric oxide. So how do they differ? What is the mechanism by which they work?
