Nitric Oxide & Heart Health
Through several decades of research, clinical trials and tests scientists and medical practitioners have gathered an enormous body of evidence which shows that the core problem of “heart disease” does not lie in the heart itself but stems from the lack of blood flow to the heart. Similarly, a stroke, also called a brain attack, is not caused by problems of the brain but derives from an insufficient blood flow to the brain and loss of brain tissue due to that poor flow.
The most important determinant of sufficient blood flow is the endothelium (the single layer of cells lining the interior wall of the blood vessels) and biochemistry taking place in it.
In particular, the ability of endothelium to produce nitric oxide, the compound that relaxes the arteries, keeps them flexible and promotes blood flow. Nitric oxide’s biggest claim to fame is its connection to Viagra, the popular drug used for erectile dysfunction ( the drug was originally designed for treatment of cardiovascular diseases but fail to stimulate nitric oxide production across the whole body).

How does Nitric Oxide work?
What is L-arginine?
Two Main Sources of NO
In mammals including humans, nitric oxide is an important cellular signaling molecule involved in many physiological and pathological processes. As recent studies on Nitric Oxide show, there several routes of N-O generation in the body. One of effective ways is metabolism of L-argenine (a type of amino acid found in fat and protein rich food) with further its conversion into N-O. (For example, have a look at “22 Reasons you should try L-arginine”).
Another route is metabolizing nitrite in the body. Nitrite (found in vegetables) is a stable physiological reservoir of N-O. In the body specific enzymes reduces nitrite (NO2−) to N-O through the oxidation of Synthase (NOS) which generates N-O. The current research proves that the nitrate–nitrite–nitric oxide pathway represents an important alternative source of N-O to the classical l-arginine–NO-synthase pathway for therapeutic needs.
