What is nitric oxide, and does it help improve blood pressure, circulation, and overall health?
Q. Dear Terry, “What is nitric oxide, and does it help improve blood pressure, circulation, and overall health? Is there anything I can take to help improve circulation?” — Cindy L., Green Bay, WI
A. Dear Cindy, Nitric oxide (NO) is a compound that is naturally produced by the body using an amino acid called L-arginine. One of the many things that NO does is trigger the relaxation of the vessel in response to changes in blood flow.
Another excellent supplement for supporting healthy circulation is mesoglycan, another naturally occurring substance found in the body. Mesoglycan is an excellent source of glycosaminoglycans (also known as GAGs) - vital and necessary components that build the walls of our blood vessels and arteries. Mesoglycan works on the actual formation of blood vessel walls, helping them to be strong, yet flexible, plus it helps keep blood moving through our arteries and blood vessels. I recommend taking 50-100 mg of mesoglycan daily.
