From Nitrate to Nitric Oxide
The salivary glands and oral bacteria play an essential role in the conversion process from nitrate (NO3-) and nitrite (NO2-) to nitric oxide (NO) in the human body. NO is, at present, recognized asExpand

Total body irradiation-induced colon damage is prevented by nitrate-mediated suppression of oxidative stress and homeostasis of the gut microbiome.
Inorganic dietary nitrate plays vital roles in biological functions via the exogenous NO3-/NO2-/NO pathway under hypoxia and ischemia. We previously verified the antioxidative effects of inorganicExpand
[Nitrate: a pioneer from the mouth to the systemic health and diseases].
Dietary nitrate which mainly comes from green leafy vegetables, is absorbed into blood circulation by the intestinal mucosa. Parotid gland is an important organ for transporting nitrate. Nitrate inExpand
