Table 1 The effects of 18 days supplementation with low (0.35 mM), medium (0.7 mM) and high (1.4 mM) doses of dietary nitrate on food, water and nitrate intakes, and body weight in rats, data = mean ± SEM, n = 5–6 per group

From: Nitrate enhances skeletal muscle fatty acid oxidation via a nitric oxide-cGMP-PPAR-mediated mechanism
