Many uses: Nitric oxide functions as a signaling molecule (neurotransmitter) telling your body to make blood vessels relax and widen. Bodybuilders and athletes may use Nitric Oxide for blood flow, oxygen delivery, glucose uptake, muscle velocity, power output, and muscle growth. There are side effects associated with this supplement. Do your homework. How about balanced eating with whey protein.
