Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is the Moonlight Beverage Company® and what products do they make?

2. What is an Enhanced Beverage?

3. What is Nitric Oxide and what are its benefits?
Nitric Oxide is a naturally occurring molecule produced by your body. Nitric Oxide expands blood vessels, improves blood flow, increases endurance and stamina, and helps remove lactic acid from your blood stream. Three naturally occurring amino acids are key to the production of Nitric Oxide – Arginine, Citrulline and Taurine. Nitric Oxide was first identified as a key component of cardiovascular functions and processes in 1998 by Nobel Prize-winning chemists and pharmacologists Dr. Robert F. Furchgott, Dr. Louis Ignarro and Dr. Ferid Murad. For more information, see Nitric Oxide on Wikipedia.
4. Why is blood flow essential for good health?
Blood flow is essential to good health because it helps your body deliver oxygen and other nutrients to your muscles and organs. Blood flow also plays an important role in ridding your body of lactic acid, which is a major cause of muscle soreness.
5. Is Love Life® Sparkling Romance Enhanced Beverage® formulated specifically for adult men and women?
Yes, Love Life® is specifically formulated for adults, especially adults over 40 years of age. Love Life delivers 8 grams of amino acids (including Arginine, Citrulline and Taurine) that help foster Nitric Oxide production in your blood stream. As people age Nitric Oxide production decreases. Enhancing Nitric Oxide production is important throughout life for improved blood flow.
6. Is Nitric Oxide the same as nitrous oxide?
Pretty funny you should ask, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is frequently used by dentists on patients while having a procedure performed. So no, they are not the same. Nitric Oxide does not produce the effects associated with nitrous oxide.
7. Can Wingman Smart Energy™ Enhanced Beverage improve blood flow for both women and men?

Wingman Smart Energy delivers 8 grams of amino acids (including Arginine, Citrulline and Taurine) that help foster Nitric Oxide production in your blood stream. Nitric Oxide expands blood vessels and improves blood flow, which leads to increased endurance and stamina, and it also helps remove lactic acid from your blood stream.

11. Do Moonlight beverages contain artificial sweeteners?
The beverages do not contain artificial sweeteners because the Schroeders are not a big fan of artificial sweeteners and believe in natural sweeteners such as stevia, monk fruit and cane sugar. Plus when working out the human body does need an energy source.
