The US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health published an article “Regulation of mitochondrial biogenesis”.  Biogenesis means the growth of Mitochondria, something we all want if we’re trying to make muscle gains and burn fat.

The article stated that “NO has been shown to be involved in mitochondrial biogenesis.” In laymen terms Nitric Oxide helps in the growth of mitochondria which means more energy for workouts (ATP) and in turn more muscle gain and fat burn.
