A Dr ignarro won then Nobel Prize recently for his work with NO, as it prevents heart attacks, strokes and generally improves your health a lot. Viagra is also a NO vasodiolationor
. You can read the benefit on the links supplied.
I tried L-Argenine, Citrulline Malate and Green Tea Extract and Cardio. I can see that flood flow has increased a lot because my ***** is much larger when flacid and erect now. Generally in males, the ***** is a good way to determine health and if blood flow is working correctly or not.
NO works by expanding the blood vessels around the body. The longer term benefits are more energy and cleaning out plague from artery walls. I also notice that if I take my tonic before I workout, I can usually sustain 30% more cardio exercise.
In his words :
Nitric oxide cant be taken in supplement form because it is a gas. However, patients can take other
supplements that increase production of nitric oxide in the blood vessels. These supplements, all
available at health-food stores, have few if any side effects
L-arginine, an amino acid found in meats, grains and fish, passes through the intestine into the
blood. From the blood, it enters endothelial cells, where it is used to make nitric oxide. A Mayo
Clinic study found that people taking L-arginine showed significant improvement in endothelial
function and blood flow compared with those taking placebos. It is hard to get sufficient Larginine
from food, so supplements are recommended.
Dose: 2,000 to 3,000 milligrams (mg) taken twice daily for a total of 4,000 to 6,000 mg.
L-citrulline. Supplemental arginine doesnt enter cells readily unless it is combined with Lcitrulline,
another amino acid. Melons and cucumbers are rich sources of L-citrulline, but they
dont provide high enough levels to significantly increase nitric oxide levels.
Dose: 400 to 600 mg daily.
Daily multivitamin that includes vitamin E. Vitamin E helps reduce the assault of cell-damaging
free radicals on the endothelial lining and may promote higher levels of nitric oxide. The amount
of vitamin E that is in most multi-vitamin/mineral supplements is about 50 international units
(IU), an effective dose.
Warning: Dont take the high-dose vitamin E supplements. Recent studies suggest that people
who take daily doses of 400 IU or higher may be more susceptible to heart disease and other
Vitamin C. Like vitamin E, vitamin C will reduce oxidation in the blood vessels and may cause an
increase in nitric oxide. People who consume high levels in vitamin C experience a reduction in
arterial plaque, which is associated with higher levels of nitric oxide. You can get your vitamin C
from food, but I recommend supplements because they are so convenient an easy to take.
Dose: 500 mg daily.
Diet and Exercise
In addition to take supplements, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle by watching what you eat
and being active. Try to
Do aerobic exercise for at least 20 minutes three days a week. This simulates endothelial cells
to continuously produce nitric oxide, even on days that you dont exercise.
Minimize intake of saturated fat. Saturated fat, found in such animal products as red meat,
poultry, butter, and whole milk, contributes to the accumulation of arterial plaque and impairs
nitric oxide production.
Better: Olive oil, fish and flaxseed. The fats found in these foods help protect the endothelium
by elevating levels of beneficial HDL cholesterol and lowering the harmful LDL form.
Eat More Fiber. The dietary fiber in grains, fruits and vegetables lowers blood pressure and LDL
cholesterol and raises HDL, thereby protecting endothelial cells.
Bonus: Many of the foods that contain fiber also are rich in antioxidants, which inhibit the cell
damage that lowers nitric oxide. Eat at least 25 grams (g) of fiber daily and drink at least eight
8-ounce glasses of water each day to make sure that the fiber moves through your system
