Fiber Type-Specific Effects of Dietary Nitrate
Exerc. Sport Sci. Rev., Vol. 44, No. 2, pp. 53-60, 2016.
Dietary nitrate supplementation increases circulating nitrite
concentration, and the subsequent reduction of nitrite to nitric oxide is promoted in hypoxic environments. Given that PO2 is lower in Type II compared with Type I muscle, this article examines the hypothesis that the ergogenicity of nitrate supplementation is linked to specific effects on vascular, metabolic, and contractile function in Type II muscle.
