In brief: No
There are some "nitric oxide supplements" on the market used by weight lifters for muscle building.
Actually Nitric Oxide is a gas produced spontaneously by the body that is important in a number of biologic processes. There is no evidence that "supplements" alter this significantly. For those weight training, a healthy diet, adequate hydration and proper technique are the keys to strength gains.

In brief: Just Eat Good Foods
Why not eat healthy natural foods that also contain other helpful nutrients? This includes beans, soy, almonds, walnuts, oats, and such cold-water fish as salmon, tuna, and mackerel.
Cut your intake of saturated fat. Just one meal high in saturated fat can temporarily cut endothelial no production. From readers digest.Com.
