Nitric Oxide and Health!


Nitric oxide has been shown to be important in the following cellular activities:

  • Help memory and behavior by transmitting information between nerve cells in the brain
  • Assist the immune system at fighting off bacteria and defending against tumors
  • Regulate blood pressure by dilating arteries
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Increase your recognition of sense (i.e. smell)
  • Increase endurance and strengthAssist in gastric motility

There have been over 60,000 studies done on nitric oxide in the last 20 years and in 1998, The Nobel Prize for Medicine was given to three scientists that discovered the signaling role of nitric oxide.

Nitric oxide and heart disease

Nitric oxide has gotten the most attention due to its cardiovascular benefits. Alfred Nobel, the founder of the Nobel Prize, was prescribed nitroglycerin over 100 years ago by his doctor to help with his heart problems. He was skeptical, knowing nitroglycerin was used in dynamite, but this chemical helped with his heart condition. Little did he know nitroglycerin acts by releasing nitric oxide which relaxes narrowed blood vessels, increasing oxygen and blood flow.

The interior surface (endothelium) of your arteries produce nitric oxide. When plaque builds up in your arteries, called atherosclerosis, you reduce your capacity to produce nitric oxide, which is why physicians prescribe nitroglycerin for heart and stroke patients.

Niteworks is nitric oxide supplement and was inwented by the L Ignarro, man who got Nobel Prize for establishing (with his colegues) importance of nitric oxide ( Furchgott RF, Ignarro LJ, Murad F. Discover concerning nitric oxide as a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system. Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology 1998.)

  1. Yeah, nitric oxide is really great when it comes to blood circulation. More blood flow, more nutrients to the muscle; more protein synthesis which leads to bigger muscles, faster metabolism, more fat loss.
