In this episode of the LYF Performance Podcast, Pete interviews Modex founder Dave McHenry about how Modex works as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, & nitric oxide boosting formulation, and the decades of research that Modex was born from, and the exciting plans to further research this powerful, natural, compound for health and performance benefits.

I’ve been using Modex for 12months and have been feeling the fitness benefits during and post exercise, improving performance and recovery. The stress accumulates less, it’s like leapfrogging to a time when you are fitter and healthier.

Dave Mchenry has a Bachelor in Food Science, and has a personal story as to why he launched Modex, and it is clear he is passionate about it.

We chat about his story and all these benefits and many more in the great interview.

Nitric Oxide (NO) is the body’s main Vasodilator. 

Vasodilation is the physiological process in which the 

diameter of blood vessels is widened to increase 

blood flow. Nitric Oxide improves the flow of blood 

and the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles.

This is of particular importance for energy production 

and hastening post exercise recovery


  1. Powerful anti-oxidant & anti inflammatory

Main active constituent is Procyanidins. This is a phenolic compound (part of a group of flavanoids) They are known and researched to be some of the most powerful natural antioxidants and anti inflammatories. 

  1. Helps generate Hyaluronic Acid

Naturally produced by your body. Mainly found in our joints, Its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and ensure they are are working smoothly. 

  1. Aids Production of Endothelial Nitric Oxide

Pycnogenol® stimulates the enzyme “endothelial nitric oxide synthase” (eNOS) for enhanced generation of NO from the precursor molecule L-arginine. As you exercise, your muscle cells consume more and more energy, leading to a decrease in nutrients and an increase in molecules such as carbon dioxide.This can lead to vasodilation, as the muscles you’re exercising require more nutrients and oxygen. When your body can no longer produce enough Nitric Oxide to keep this process going, this is where Pycnogenol is beneficial.
