Feeling tired? Falling asleep in the afternoon? Losing your keys or interest in sex? Are you concerned about cardiovascular disease, hypertension, osteoporosis, high cholesterol, diabetes and its complications? Or want to limit the pain and swelling of arthritis, calm the inflammation of asthma and assist the immune system in fighting infection? If so, you may need a new revolutionary natural remedy, NEO40, to increase your level of nitric oxide (N0).
My initial reaction to this news was, “It’s too good to be true.” But three researchers received the prestigious Nobel Prize for this discovery. Louise J. Ignarro, one of the prize winners, says, “There may be no disease process where this miracle molecule does not have a protective role.”
Dr. Nathan S. Bryan at the University of Texas, a world authority on nitric oxide, adds that NO can have a huge effect on all these medical problems.
Bryan says that for 100 years researchers have known nitroglycerine eased coronary pain by increasing blood supply to the heart’s muscle. But it remained a mystery why these arteries expanded. Now we know it is due to the miracle molecule, nitric oxide, which, when produced, sends messages to every cell in the body in nanoseconds.
Nitric oxide first attained star status in the treatment of male impotence. Erectile dysfunction is cured by drugs that produce NO, sending increased amounts of blood to the penis.
Early in life we produce large amounts of NO in the endothelial lining (the innermost lining) of blood vessels. This keeps arteries expanded. But after age 40, production of nitric oxide decreases, arteries constrict, causing hypertension, and constant pressure injures the inner wall of coronary arteries. This damage results in a chemical and inflammatory reaction that kills one Australian every 12 minutes.
3.85 million Australians also have arthritis. Researchers at the University of Colorado say when NO increases circulation, nerve and joint inflammation decreases, which can result in dramatic relief to patients with osteoarthritis.
Another 1.7 million Australians have Type 2 diabetes due to obesity, and nearly 1 million others have borderline diabetes. High blood sugar gradually destroys the circulatory system, resulting in heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness, amputation of legs and doubles the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
It’s believed that decreased amounts of NO may play a major role in the development of Type 2 diabetes. Low levels of NO result in insulin resistance, making it difficult for insulin to enter cells to maintain a normal blood sugar level.
Researchers also report that nitric oxide levels are significantly lower in patients with depression. NO can also prevent respiratory problems by improving lung function. Dark, leafy greens such as spinach contain nitrate that turns into nitrite, producing NO. Apple juice, tea, dark chocolate, red wine and a brisk walk also produce NO.
Dr. Bryan reports that some people take L-arginine to produce NO. But NEO40, a supplement now available, is more effective in boosting NO because it contains L-citrulline, vitamin C, beet root and hawthorn.
Bryan says most people over 40 are low in NO and he recommends two tablets of NEO40 daily until the level of NO increases, then one tablet a day. An easy saliva test is included to show your level of NO.
