This Food Additives Status List, formerly called Appendix A of the Investigations Operations Manual (IOM), organizes additives found in many parts of 21 CFR into one alphabetized list. Additives included are those specified in the regulations promulgated under the FD&C Act, under Sections 401 (Food Standards), and 409 (Food Additives). The Food Additives Status List includes short notations on use limitations for each additive. For complete information on its use limitations, refer to the specific regulation for each substance. New regulations and revisions are published in current issues of the Federal Register as promulgated. Also refer to the Food Ingredient and Packaging inventories in the Foods section of the FDA web site to review several FDA databases of additive categories. For example, the EAFUS list (Everything Added to Food in the United States), is a helpful reference within the limitations described at the beginning of the database.
The exact dosing instructions for nitric oxide supplement is not known. However, most supplements contain an average dose of grams of L-arginine and L-citrulline. We suggest you follow a process known as tolerance mapping to understand just how much nitric acid is required for your body. The process is simple. All you have to do is start with a small dose in Week 1. During the first week, make sure you note down the benefits and side effects that you are feeling. Once your body has adjusted to the lowest dose possible, you can then increase the dosing until you start feeling beneficial effects. Gradually, your body starts adjusting to the supplement and you will hit your optimal dose. However, the temporary recommendations for the supplement that you can take 2000mg-6000mg per day for optimum effects. Please note that overdosing is possible as dose variations can happen due to physiological differences. In case you notice diarrhea, vomiting, weakness, and nausea, stop the supplement immediately and consult your personal physician. Please note that liquids are absorbed much faster than solids and dosages for liquids will be lower than that of solid preparations.
