And then look at what you get with nitrate of which there is a lot:  a bunch of nitric acid and salt!  Niether of those is going to make you feel too good.

Anyway, all of this makes me wonder if it really does have that much nitrate!

Sodium nitrate is a well-known compound that is (was) used in gunpowder and fireworks.  It is probably the reason why arugula is called "Rocket" after all :)  The MSDS is always entertaining for any product because it has all the warnings associated with said compound.  The MSDS for water even lists a lethal dose for rats.

Here is a review of some of the sodium nitrate studies...

For what it is worth, I find that a heavy nitrate supplementation within 1 hour of exercise is damaging to performance.  I tried a large amount of fresh squeezed carrot/beet juice before a soccer game last year (probably containing 500-1000mg nitrates) and had an awful lack of breath and energy.  I just discovered that it was probably a result of the nitrate/nitrite negatively impacting my hemoglobin.

*Cured my intermittent ED which started at ~35 years old by adding in nitrate-containing foods DAILY (arugula, beets, romaine, spinach) and drinking occasional POM juice. Interestingly, I have seen no changes in cholesterol/LDL/HDL or any other typical blood parameters.

I bought this and have taken about 5 of the capsultes and the good news is that I got no stomach ache.  The bad news:  it never raised my NO levels a bit as far as I can tell.  I have taken two separate readings and I am DELETED with the Berkeley strips both times.  Seems to do nothing.

I'm not surprised at all.  I figured out that the paper is off by one decimal place.  So the actual amount is 25.1mg per capsule.  It would take 10-20 capsules before you could probably get any reading at all.  Keep in mind there won't be any interaction from chewing so perhaps the NO levels would be lower than with food of the same amount.  I'd like to try 20 capsules (since it is just food after all) but I'm sure my stomach would not allow it.
