Nitric oxide has gained attention as one of the most important molecules produced in the human body. It was considered so important in 1998 a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to three U.S. scientists for their discovery of nitric oxide.
Nitric oxide is a gaseous signaling molecule that tells our blood vessels to relax and dilate to improve blood flow and circulation. It is also responsible for oxygen and nutrient delivery to every organ, tissue and cell in the body. It is a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and is also part of our immune response to kill off invading pathogens such as bacteria and viruses.
Loss of nitric oxide production is now considered the earliest event in the onset and progression of most, if not all, chronic age-related diseases, including cardiovascular disease, the number one killer of men and women worldwide. Loss of nitric oxide is associated with erectile dysfunction, loss of stem cell function, high blood pressure, diabetes, immune dysfunction and inflammation.
With over 185,000 scientific papers published on nitric oxide, the science reveals there is not a single human condition where nitric oxide would not be beneficial when given at the right dose at the right time to the right patient. The clinical evidence suggests that patient cannot and will not get better or perform optimally without restoration of nitric oxide.
