Nitric Oxide or NO is a major factor in regulating blood flow. NO has multiple beneficial effects, including reducing arterial inflammation, lowering oxidative stress throughout the body, opening the arteries wider, inhibiting thickening of the arteries, decreasing atherosclerosis, lowering blood pressure, and reducing blood clotting and platelet stickiness. Research is now showing that activated muscles also stimulate nitric oxide production. This valuable molecule opens up a powerful pathway for improving the activity of blood vessels, regulating blood pressure and decreasing coronary heart disease.
