Shedding Light on Nitric Oxide

Due to the vasodilation effect of nitric oxide, it has drawn the attention of the world's top scientists seeking to learn more about this oxygen-boosting molecule.  Take a look at the following links to learn more about why nitric oxide has piqued the interest of researchers around the world.  

Watch this space for the results of their investigations.



 "The NO produced by our own cells can interact with molecules in invading cells such as bacteria, parasites and viruses to kill them or inhibit their replication or spread. NO has been show to increase the survival rate of mammalian cells infected with SARS-CoV (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome caused by coronavirus). Importantly, in a limited study in 2004, inhaled NO (INO) was demonstrated to be effective against the SARS-CoV in severely ill patients with pneumonia. The mechanism of action was thought to be pulmonary vasodilation and consequent improved oxygenation in the blood of the lungs, thereby killing the virus, which does not do well in a high oxygen environment. In addition, however, I would offer the opinion that the NO also interacts with the virus to kill it directly."

"Our results demonstrated that NO specifically inhibits the replication cycle of SARS CoV, most probably during the early steps of infection, suggesting that the production of NO by iNOS results in an antiviral effect."

 "Furthermore, nitric oxide has actually been shown to inhibit Coronavirus replication.

So in summary we know from epidemiology all the way down to cellular and molecular biology, that loss of nitric oxide is the problem and restoration of nitric oxide is the solution. It is that simple."
