Dietary nitrate does not affect physical activity outcomes in health older adults in a randomized, crossover trial
Siervo, M.; Oggioni, C.; Jakovljevic, D.G.; Trenell, M.; Mathers, J.C.; Houghton, D.; Celis-Morales, C.; Ashor, A.W.; Ruddock, A.; Ranchordas, M.; Klonizakis, M.; Williams, E.A.;
Although dietary nitrate (NO3−) ingestion appears to enhance exercise capacity and performance in young individuals, inconclusive findings have been reported in older people. Therefore, we conducted a double-blind, crossover randomized clinical trial using beetroot juic... View more
