Niacin Nitric Oxide
Are Niacin and Nitric oxide the same thing? I have an allergic reaction to Niacin, would I have the same reaction to Nitric oxide?
Different: Niacin is a vitamin and nitric oxide is a cellular signal molecule created in the body by an enzyme named nitric oxide synthase. There is no cross reactivity in terms of adverse reactions. ...Read more
A gas that can directly relax vascular smooth muscle. It is used in the critical care setting to treat pulmonary hypertension. This can be seen in premature neonates with bronchiopulmonary dysplasia or neonates with congenital heart disease. It may be used in adults with severe pulmonary ...Read more
Innate in our lungs: Nitric oxide is produced in the blood vessels of our lungs. It's valuable for appropriate vasodilation or dilating of the arteries when needed. Helps to prevent against pulmonary vascular disorders like pulmonary hypertension. Several disorders can disturb the NO activity in our bodies and this pathway has been a key drug therapeutic target.

Relaxes the uterus:
In rare cases where relaxing a woman's pregnant uterus would help "turn a baby around, " deliver a second twin, avoid a "tight squeeze" for the baby's head, or to help extract the placenta after a complex delivery, Nitric Oxide (in the form of nitroglycerin) is sometimes used by anesthesia providers.
In sever acute respiratory syndrome of pregnancy, no can selectively improve oxygen delivery. ...Read more
Probably none: I have seen conflicting studies. Many suggest that it is arginine which may be included as a supplement that releases a small amt of nitric oxide. Which may increase endurance. Seen other studies that say eating nitrates for breakfast may raise levels later in the day. ...Read more
Why do you ask?: If you are taking arginine, 'nitric oxide' or whatever as part of a bodybuilding scheme, you're likely to be disappointed. You do need to address you acne scientifically.

So their is possibility of bleeding problems if both are taken, especially if one also takes ndaids or coumadin (warfarin). Discuss the benefit-risk ration of these 2 with your fp or internist or hematologist. ...Read more
What are the ways to cure endothelial damage from high LDL, does Nitric Oxide supplementation help in the healing?
Taking 5 mg/day of isosorbide monotrite. Does its long term usage deplete or has affect on nitric oxide in arteries. Any tapering off needed.?
Problematic: Long acting nitrates exhibit tachyphylaxis which means that the more you take, the less they work. Moreover, there is a rebound issue when you stop them abruptly. That said, people who only take nitrates once a day will not be affected by either issue because the med wears off and they are effectively only receiving 8-12 hours of nitrate effect in any 24 hour period. ...Read more
Are there interactions with Lexapro (escitalopram) and a nitric oxide supplement such as nitrocut?: http://www.Nitrocut.Com/supplement-fact-sheet/
Can nitric oxide help build your muscles or should i use creatine. will they both support muscle growth if so witch one helps more and if i can take t?
Wow, this is wrong: Ok, let us start with creatine. There is creatine supplements which give a temporary boost and yet, Maria Sharapova was taking a pill to get rid of creatine as a performance enhancer. This tells you how ridiculous the nonscientific supplement field is. Nitric oxide is broken down. You cant get a supplment for it, except viagra (sildenafil) stops its breakdown. That opens up lungs and is useful in sprints. ...Read more
Are there any interactions possible with Lexapro (escitalopram) and a nitric oxide supplement such as nitrocut?: http://www.Nitrocut.Com/supplement-fact-sheet/
Many uses: Nitric oxide functions as a signaling molecule (neurotransmitter) telling your body to make blood vessels relax and widen. Bodybuilders and athletes may use Nitric Oxide for blood flow, oxygen delivery, glucose uptake, muscle velocity, power output, and muscle growth. There are side effects associated with this supplement. Do your homework. How about balanced eating with whey protein. ...Read more
Dilates arteries: Nitric oxide dilates arteries and improves the functioning of the lining of the blood vessels. It lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow to organs.

Foods with Arginine: 1. Eat more foods that contain the Amino Acid arginine. This includes arginine. These are foods such as beans, soy, almonds, walnuts, oats, and such cold-water fish as salmon, tuna, and mackerel. I looked this up on readers digest.Com. Interesting! ...Read more
No: It's the precursor molecule of Nitroglycerin which is used for people who are having, or at risk of having, a heart attack. It's a potent vessel dilator and improves circulation to tissues that are starved for blood and oxygen. Don't confuse it with nitrogen dioxide with is a nasty pollutant or with nitrous oxide (laughing gas, an anesthetic). ...Read more
Meds: Yes, I see no contraindicationsGet a more detailed answer ›
Forgive me...Might you mean "creatine" and Nitric Oxide supplements? These pre-workout compounds are used by some individuals to boost performance.
These substances work via different mechanisms and metabolic pathways and their effects may be additive. Whether or not your physiology can utilize them without untoward effect is a question for a sports physiologist or trainer. ...Read more
Not indicated: Nitric oxide is a gaseous free radical (also known as endothelium-derived growth factor) that acts as a vasodilator in the human body. Although it is involved biologically in vasodilatation leading to penile erection, its clinical use does not include a pill form, but is limited to its application as a gas in the treatment of pulmonary hypertension in the newborn. ...Read more
