Question for Peak - nitric oxide level test strips
« on: February 19, 2012, 10:41:19 pm »
i've never considered nitric oxide levels, so i've been curious in reading up on it here. I read somewhere Peak that you've gotten value out of the strips to test levels. Is that true?

how many would you suggest i get if i want to test, and do you test a couple of times over a week/two week period to get a "baseline" understanding of what your true levels are?

they are a bit expensive per strip, so i'd love any guidance. Thanks.

I like the Neogenis test strips and feel that they're reasonably priced.  I can't remember how many are in a tube, but it's quite a few. 

I used them to get a feel whether a supplement was having the desired effect, were my NO levels correlating with how I felt, if exercise/certain foods/meals were changing things.  In other words, I was just unscientifically having fun with them.

If you use them, imo you'll get a good feeling for how well you are doing in general.  They are kind of like litmus paper, except that there are more ranges or regions on the strips.  In fact, they've divided them up into four ranges.  I was in the "depleted" or bottom range on time and just felt terrible in general then.  So you can learn some interesting things from it.

Here's the interview I had with Dr. Bryan on the subject and I think it will answer your q's:

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

Thanks Peak - ok, i didn't realize you got multiple strips per order.

Did your levels vary significantly? when you were "depleted," what was the scenario?

thanks - won't bother you with any other Qs...

You can call Neogenis and ask how many strips you get or it probably says on the order page.  I just don't remember exactly.

Well, I  mentioned this elsewhere:  I have always felt that low nitric oxide affects the brain, mood, energy and so on.  And it's no wonder, it's now considered neurotransmitter; it's involved in immunity and, of course, it affects blood flow and arterial inflammation through the body. 

So, if you try them, let us know if you agree with my assessment...
