Arginine Nitric Oxide Gas Molecule


What is Nitric Oxide and why is it so valued by health professionals?

Arginine Nitric Oxide is actually the Nitric Oxide Gas Molecule converted in the body from Arginine.  This process called Arginine Derived Nitric Oxide (ADNO).  We will take a closer look at what is special about this molecule.

Nitric Oxide. The Miracle Molecule

In biochemistry it is called Nitrogen Mono-Oxide - the chemical formula is NO.   Indeed, it has a huge body of science and years of trials and research behind, yet we will try to keep it simple and understood and start with the discovery of the Nitric Oxide gas molecule. 

The group of scientists which had discovered it won the Nobel Prize in medicine in October 1998.  Nitric Oxide then, was labelled as the “Miracle Molecule” and no wonder why.  It has numerous health benefits. First of all It is a powerful vasodilator, which simply means, it works on arteries to keep them open and help to maintain their texture walls smooth, so blood can flow in a normal way.

The Arginine Nitric Oxide Cardiovascular Solution

The health benefits of L-arginine supplementation are well researched.  It is proved to be an alternative to drug's treatment and improve many areas of health. 

Arginine derived Nitric Oxide miracle effect is well described in the book “The Arginine Solution” which records an extensive body of research.  According to that research Nitric Oxide is essential to relaxing blood vessels, and so helps with healthy blood pressure and circulation.

Nitric oxide helps the blood vessels maintain their flexibility so that the blood flow is unrestricted.  It assists open coronary arteries through which the heart is supplied with blood, so preventing angina pain.  It is a powerful blood thinner and helps prevent blood platelets from sticking together into the clots that can cause strokes and heart attacks.

Other researches show that Nitric Oxide is a potent antioxidant.  It scavenges free radicals and helps to lower serum cholesterol.  Its' other important anti-oxidative function is to guard LDL cholesterol from free radical damage that turns it (the cholesterol) into an aggressive artery blocker.

It also works as an antioxidant that reduces the possibility of immune cells sticking to artery walls. This helps to reduce inflammation, which most health professionals agree is a major cause of the plaque build up that contributes to atherosclerosis.

Other Fine Works of Nitric Oxide

We do not intend to deprive you from the pleasure of making your own research on Arginine’s Nitric Oxide, therefore we mention the following healing benefits very briefly.

  • NO helps to control the lungs airway which helps pancreatic secretion of insulin, so reducing the risk of diabetes.
  • It acts as a messenger molecule, by helping nerve cells in the body and brain to communicate with each other, so enhancing the blood flow to the brain to encode long term memory.
  • Arginine is used by the immune system cells, especially the ones that kill marauding bacteria and cancer cells, to produce Nitric Oxide. This helps their work.
  • Arginine’s Nitric Oxide even stimulates the body to release the human growth hormone, which helps with decreasing fat, strengthening the bones and longevity

Arginine's Nitric Oxide main function is to increase blood flow, which increases Oxygen and therefore increases healing within the body...

The amount of studies, trials and benefits' reports on Arginine derived Nitric Oxide is huge, it is found in books, thousands of articles and other sources of information.  Meanwhile you may find interesting this brief special report on arginine.  We recommend you to go through it if you wish to gain better understanding of Arginine and Nitric Oxide fine works in your body.
