In brief: Nitric oxide

Nitric oxide was thought to be an endothelial relaxation factor which is released from endothelial cells to smooth muscle cells and relaxes them to lower resistance and lower blood pressure.
There has been no randomized controlled study to test the benefit of supplements in reducing hypertension or cardiovascular disease.
