Nitric oxide side effects!

When it comes to nitric oxide side effects...

There's good news, and there's bad news!

The bad news first...

Extremely high levels of NO in the blood stream can cause hypotension, or extremely low blood pressure, which can lead to death in just a matter of minutes.

NO can also cause damage to the brain.

Now, the good news...

Only under very unusual circumstances would this occur.

For example,

  • In septicaemia (blood poisoning), bacteria circulate in large numbers in the blood, and, in response, high levels of NO are produced. This leads to a severe fall in blood pressure and septic shock, and ultimately death unless treatment is sought immediately.
  • After a stroke, the nerve cells that have been deprived of oxygen fail to control their intracellular calcium. This triggers the body to produce massive amounts of NO which destroys the surrounding neurons in the brain, which can lead to death.

On the other hand...

The average guy just looking to boost nitric oxide levels in order to improve erection quality and strength, has very little to worry about.

Dangerously high levels of NO would never occur by simply using nitric oxide supplements.

But the benefits of optimal nitric oxide levels include,

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Reduced platelet aggregation (blood clotting)
  • Reduced risk of heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.
