Nitric Oxide

Nitric Oxide

Nitric oxide (NO) is produced by many cells in the body; however, its production by particularly important in the regulation of  blood flow. Because of its importance in vascular function, abnormal production of NO, as occurs in different disease states, can adversely affect blood flow and other vascular functions.

For most of us, the issue of low Nitric Oxide theat concerns us most has to  do with its vasodialating effect in the peripheral vascular affecting blood flow, especially to the sex organs. Low NO is often implicated in erectile dysfunction and high blood pressure

In the field of medical research, N-O is being researched for its many benefits, including helping with:

  • Maintain healthy blood pressure
  • Support normal triglyceride levels
  • Enhance healthy circulation
  • Promote artery health
  • Support cardiovascular and heart health
  • Improve exercise endurance and performance
  • Support sexual performance via improved circulation

Researchers continue to explore N-O’s many roles in health. While in the preliminary stages, researchers are currently investigating the potential role of nitric oxide in bone health, cognitive function, pregnancy, and more.
