As we age, the level of nitric oxide in our body drops. When the level decreases, so to does the benefit of having enough of this amazing molecule. It’s the body’s main vasodilator – meaning it dilates the blood vessels to allow blood to flow – so there are considerable health implications to not having enough in our system.
These simple, saliva-examining test strips are different to the exhaled nitric oxide test, also known as eNO or exhaled nitric oxide, whereby those suspected of having asthma (who naturally have more eNo or exhaled nitric oxide) can exhale into a mouthpiece connected to a machine to find out.
These test strips are the only one of their kind to conveniently use saliva to check the level of nitric oxide in the body, making sure our body has enough to reap the benefits of efficient blood flow.
Before test strips were developed, getting test results about nitric oxide levels was very difficult – it’s not the sort of thing that you could ask your GP to check.
There are machines that are only a nitric oxide test for asthma. These cumbersome and expensive machines could of course help to diagnose asthma, but are not really suitable or accessible for those wishing to get test results for nitric oxide levels in the body. These machines only measure eNO (exhaled nitric oxide) levels.
The test strips actually measure the nitric oxide metabolised in your saliva. This is of course different to eNo or exhaled Nitric Oxide and far more accessible and fit for purpose.
These remarkable Test Strips were developed by the leading nitric oxide expert - Dr. Nathan Brown. Working alongside Nobel Prize-winning scientists to develop the strips, Dr. Nathan Brown also developed the natural stimulator of nitric oxide, the Neo40 Daily supplement.
The test strips show the level of nitric oxide in the body and therefore highlight possible health problems arising from a deficiency. Ultimately they can highlight the potential need for nitric oxide supplements.
If the test strips indicate a deficiency, then Neo40 daily is one such nitric oxide supplement that’s the herbal route to naturally increase nitric oxide production.
The Nitric Oxide Saliva test Strips are easy to use – you simply add some of your saliva to the strip and look at the colour. You then compare the colour chart with your saliva sample and it will indicate one of four segments. These test results will show your nitric oxide levels and whether you need to get you nitric oxide levels up.
Nitric Oxide Diagnostics Test Strips – 25 nitric oxide tests
Introducing the first and only saliva test that measures your body’s ability to produce Nitric Oxide. Nitric Oxide (NO) is a critical molecule naturally produced in your body that helps maintain optimal circulation.
The best time to test is first thing in the morning, before eating or drinking as diluting the saliva renders the test inaccurate.
Antiseptic mouthwash and antibiotics can also impact the accuracy of the test.
Wash your hands and gather saliva on fingertip
Place saliva on test pad
Compare results to the color chart.
Do not put the strip in your mouth
Use one of the test strips to find your starting NO level. Test at regular intervals (daily or weekly). Your goal is to maintain a normal test reading over time. If you are restoring your NO levels with a supplement or through diet, this test can be a useful tool for monitoring your progress.
Nitric Oxide Diagnostics
Store at room temperate. Protect from heat, direct sunlight and moisture. Nitric Oxide test strips should be used within 6 months of first opening the sealed container. Replace cap quickly after removing a test strip. Keep out of reach of children.
