Improved motor and cognitive performance with sodium nitrite supplementation is related to small metabolite signatures: a pilot trial in middle-aged and older adults


Figure 3. Endurance as measured by time to failure on a Balke treadmill task at baseline and following 10 weeks placebo (white) or sodium nitrite supplementation (gray – 80 mg/day; black – 160 mg/day). Sodium nitrite supplementation improved total duration subjects could sustain the treadmill test, especially at 80 mg/day supplementation (* p<0.05).
