For over 200 years, after the discovery of Nitric Oxide (NO), it was largely thought of as an unwanted, atmospheric pollutant. However, the discovery of its effects on human biology were so profound that, scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize, for discovering its role in the cardiovascular system.
NO or Nitric Oxide, plays an important role in a variety of biological processes, and is a fundamental component in the fields of biochemistry, physiology, immunology and neuroscience.
Nowadays, an association has been found between NO levels and different diseases including cardiovascular disease, heart failure, hypertension, diabetes, thyroid disorders, metabolic syndrome and obesity. In addition, NO has a strong trace in neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington’s, Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s disease etc.
It has been suggested that an increase in NO production may enhance oxygen and nutrient delivery to active muscles, thus improving tolerance to physical exercise and recovery mechanisms.
This eBook will show you the effects of Nitric Oxide on the human body, and how you can increase the intake of NO through food and supplements.
