A thermogenic is a broad term for any supplement that the manufacturer claims will cause thermogenesis , resulting in increased body temperature, increased metabolic rate, and consequently an increased rate in the burning of body fat and weight loss. Until 2004 almost every product found in this supplement category comprised the " ECA stack ": ephedrine , caffeine and aspirin . However, on February 6, 2004 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned the sale of ephedra and its alkaloid , ephedrine, for use in weight loss formulas. Several manufacturers replaced the ephedra component of the "ECA" stack with bitter orange or citrus aurantium (containing synephrine ) instead of the ephedrine.
Studies have found that the use of Nitric Oxide for the elderly may help to reduce blood pressure, increase blood flow, and decrease symptoms of degenerative neurological disorders/diseases.

It is extremely important that careful attention is given to the possible negative interactions Nitric Oxide can cause in a person of your age. While asking your doctor may seem bothersome, it is highly recommended that you do as your doctor has a better understanding of your medical history and can safely advise you.
