Nitric oxide prevents cardiovascular disease
NO has been a major area of research for about the past decade. NO has shown to be a vasodialator effective in lowering BP safely and effectively. But, like many other natural substances, in high levels NO is also dangerous, leading to increased inflammation. Many clinicians are using the amino acid arginine as a source of NO to lower blood pressure naturally. This stude uses NO in mice to protect against dangerous levels of induced cardiovascular risk factors.
