NO3(-) supplementation via beetroot juice (BR) augments exercising skeletal muscle blood flow subsequent to its reduction to NO2(-) then NO. We tested the hypothesis that enhanced vascular control following BR would elevate the skeletal muscle O2 delivery/O2 utilization ratio (microvascular PO2, PmvO2) and raise the PmvO2 during the rest-contractions transition. Rats were administered BR (~0.8 mmol/kg/day, n=10) or water (control, n=10) for 5 days. PmvO2 was measured during 180 s of… CONTINUE READING
