Protective roles of inorganic nitrate in health and diseases

Sources of Nitrites in Organisms Nitrites in organisms can originate from both endogenous (internal) and exogenous (external) sources. Understanding these sources is crucial for comprehending the role of nitrites in human physiology and their potential health impacts. Endogenous Sources Exogenous Sources Physiological Relevance of Nitrites In summary, nitrites in organisms originate from both internal metabolic […]
