Quotes Regarding Nitric Oxide:

Quotes Regarding the Conversion of L-Arginine to Nitric Oxide (NO) inside the body.

Dr. Louis Ignarro, Noble Laureate in Medicine (1998), author of the book "NO More Heart Disease"

"Though NO's structure is simple, nitric oxide is now regarded as the most significant molecule in the body, absolutely crucial to your well-being. I am convinced that nitric oxide can age-proof your cardiovascular system, keeping it much fitter than your chronological age would indicate."

"Repairing the damage wrought by cardiovascular disease without risky and often ineffective surgery had long been considered impossible. I was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for making that thinking obsolete. Now we know we can verse cardiovascular impairment natuarally—with the body’s internally manufactured "wonder drug", nitric oxide (NO).

"Your body has four essential bodily processes: vascular tone, coagulation, inflammation and oxidation. NO therapy can make a life-saving difference to your health by enhancing the positive and eradicating the negative in each of them."

Dr. John Cooke, Director of Vascular Medicine at Stanford University, Author of the book, "The Cardiovascular Cure".

"This book will introduce you to the magic that is inside your blood vessels. It comes in the shape of a molecule, one of the simplest molecules found in nature. This molecule is nitric oxide, or NO, a substance so powerful that it can actually protect you from heart attack and stroke. Best of all, your body can make it on its own. NO is your body's own built-in, natural protection against heart disease."

Dr. Robert Fried, Ph.D and Woodson Merrell, M.D. Co-authored "The Arginine Solution".

"In the field of medicine and health it is one of the revolutions of our time: The discovery that the amino acid arginine may be a 'magic bullet' for the cardiovascular system. Now, as the evidence mounts, including research that won the Nobel Prize in Medicine, more and more scientists and doctors see the extraordinary health benefits of increasing arginine Intake. A virtual arterial cleanser, arginine helps eliminate blockage and maintain blood flow."

Dr. Jonathan S. Stamler, Professor of Medicine at Duke University Medical Center.

"It does everything, everywhere. You cannot name a major cellular response or physiological effect in which [nitric oxide) is not implicated today. It's involved in complex behavioral changes in the brain, airway relaxation, beating of the heart, dilation of blood vessels, regulation of intestinal movement, function of blood cells, the immune system, even how fingers and arms move."

The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1998 was awarded jointly to Robert F. Furchgott, Louis J. Ignarro and Ferid Murad "for their discoveries concerning nitric oxide as a signalling molecule in the cardiovascular system".
