Does AltRed contain nitrates?
AltRed does not contain dietary nitrates. They are removed during our betalains extraction process.
Wait... what? The unleashed betalains in AltRed help your body create its own type of nitric oxide called nitrosylated hemoglobin or NOHb (Also written as HbNO). NOHb lasts 10,000 times longer in your body. This allows you to sustain an activity for longer. You aren't going to feel a rush or tingle. Most people don’t actually notice a difference until they reach their limit and are able to keep going. Others recognize how they feel fresher and less sore during recovery.
