Kyäni Nitro Xtreme is a proprietary blend of noni concentrate that increases the body's natural production of Nitric Oxide (NO).  In addition, Nitro Xtreme™ contains CoQ10, Magnesium, Zinc, Chromium, and Niacin. Most important qualities  of Nitric Oxide is the ability to dilate the blood vessels, thus maintaining healthy circulation and heart health. It is a “signaling molecule” that supports healthy inflammatory response. Supports motility and micro-circulation, promoting blood flow and nutrient delivery throughout the body.

Nitric oxide is a molecule that’s produced naturally by your body, and it’s important for many aspects of your health.

Its most important function is vasodilation, meaning it relaxes the inner muscles of the blood vessels, causing them to widen and increase circulation.

Nitric oxide production is essential for overall health because it allows blood, nutrients and oxygen to travel to every part of your body effectively and efficiently.

In fact, a limited capacity to produce nitric oxide is associated with heart disease, diabetes and erectile dysfunction. Nitric oxide is an unstable molecule that degrades quickly in the bloodstream, so it must be constantly replenished. One way to increase its stability and limit its breakdown is by consuming antioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules that neutralize free radicals, which contribute to the short life of nitric oxide.

Nutrex Hawaii, Pure Hawaiian Spirulina has long been revered for its ability to strengthen the immune system. Because it actively promotes cell regeneration, it helps wounds heal quicker, and makes recovery from illnesses occur faster. Spirulina fortifies one's immune system, leaving the person less likely to experience colds, flus, and other contractible illnesses. This blue-green algae is very rich in vitamin A, and this vitamin is exceptionally important for healthy eyes. Spirulina is one of the leading sources of Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory agents in nature. Promotes healthy bacteria in the digestive system, and helps to improve the absorption of dietary nutrients. Has a very high concentration of chlorophyll, one of nature's most powerful detoxifying agents. It has been shown to be effective at helping remove toxins from the blood, and it binds to heavy metals and radioactive isotopes.  Is very high in bio-available iron, a good source of vitamins B-1(thiamine), B-2 (riboflavin), B-3(nicotinamide), B-6 (pyridoxine), B-9 (folic acid), B-12 (cobalamin), vitamin E, and vitamin K1 and K2 , also a source of potassium, chromium, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, and zinc.

Wild yam root 

Wild yam is a plant. It contains a chemical called diosgenin. This chemical can be made in the laboratory into various steroids, such as estrogen and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). The root and the bulb of the plant are used as a source of diosgenin, which is prepared as an “extract,” a liquid that contains concentrated diosgenin.

Tribulus Terrestris (fruit)

One of the main active ingredients in tribulus is a compound known as protodioscin, which increases the secretion of luteinizing hormone (LH). LH is a gonadotropic hormone which controls the function of the ovaries in females and testes in males. There may be a small effect in postmenopausal women with low libido, however, the difference wasn't statistically significant.

Chasteberry

Small brown berry about the size of a peppercorn, that comes from a tree by the name of Vitex agnus-castus. Chasteberry is believed to work by suppressing the release of prolactin from the pituitary gland. Herbalists believe chasteberry is a natural source of progesterone. It helps normalize the ratio of progesterone to estrogen. subsequently provides relief from the monthly symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome including bloating, cramps, acne, breast tenderness, and mood swings. The hormone balancing qualities of chasteberry make it ideal for counteracting hot flashes and other symptoms. It can also be combined with other herbs such as black cohosh or dong quai for maximum effect.

Maca root

IT is an adaptogen, which means it supports your whole endocrine system to produce the right amounts of hormones you need. Maca can help your body "adapt" to stressful life situations that might otherwise deplete your body's hormone production and cause symptoms. Maca in perimenopausal and menopausal women has been linked to an increase in hormones, including progesterone and luteinizing hormone (which stimulates ovary function). The maca also stimulated estradiol and suppressed the production of chemicals like the stress hormone, cortisol. Maca is a tuber, which means that under the ground, the plant stores its rich nutrients in a bulb shaped like a radish or turnip. It is rich in vitamins C and A as well as B2, B6 and Niacin. The hardy root is also packed with minerals, including iron, zinc, iodine, calcium, copper, magnesium and potassium. Maca is also rich in beneficial plant sterols that are biochemically related to hormones such as estrogen, testosterone and progesterone. And it contains healthy fatty acids, which are beneficial for the heart and appear to help stabilize blood glucose levels and reduce inflammation. Maca is a cruciferous vegetable, so it contains glucosinolates. In nature, glucosinolates are stored in cells of plants and act as natural pesticides to protect the plant. When you chew and digest them they change into health-boosting chemicals, which protect against cancer. They also contain sulfurs, which are found in foods like garlic and onions and form bonds that help your enzymes do their job in the body. In particular, sulfurs help your body produce a master antioxidant called glutathione. This boosts the function of your liver and helps your liver detoxify.

Epimedium 

Also known as barrenwort, bishop's hat, fairy wings, horny goat weed, or yin yang huo, is a genus of flowering plants in the family Berberidaceae. The majority of the species are endemic to China, with smaller numbers elsewhere in Asia, and a few in the Mediterranean region. Epimedium also has testosterone-like effects which increase libido in both women and men. It stimulates the production of sperms, increases sexual desire as well as stimulates the sensory nerves. In a 2013 study, epimedium was found to directly help the body synthesize estrogen, which could be particularly helpful in instances where there is an abnormal lack of the hormone. This includes female health symptoms related to menopause, infertility, or other reproductive problems.

Ashwagandha root 

Botanically known as Withania somnifera root. It is a member of the Solanaceae (nightshade) family. Ashwagandha root is also commonly called Indian ginseng, winter cherry and somnifera root. Typically used to help increase testosterone and maintain a healthy balance of hormones. Not only that, but it’s still used as an adaptogen to treat mental conditions (stress, anxiety, depression). Chronic stress increases cortisol levels, leading to lower levels of T3 and T4. Ashwagandha appears to stimulate your endocrine system, boosting thyroid hormone levels by reducing cortisol This data suggests that ashwagandha extract may be helpful in improving insulin sensitivity and reducing inflammatory markers in humans.

Milky Oat Head (leaf/stem)

Milky green oats refer to the creamy oat tops, picked fresh at the height of the season. Milky oats can also be used regularly with good results for stress and energy. They build sustained long-term energy by supporting endocrine and nervous system with an impressive nutrient content;  like B-complex, potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc. Research shows milky oats increase sexual energy and performance for men and women. Milky oats can reduce PMS symptoms, like insomnia and cramps. Some women report they ease menopausal problems like vaginal dryness or mild anxiety.
