What is Nitric Oxide?
What is nitric oxide? Laughing gas you get at the dentist office? Rocket fuel for an engine? In fact, nitric oxide is one of the most critical molecules used in our body’s cellular activities. Primarily responsible for how our cells communicate with one another by transmitting signals throughout the body, nitric oxide supports and protects different areas of our body in many ways. Over the last two decades, over 60,000 scientific studies have been performed, including the discovery of nitric oxide’s signaling function, which received the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1998.
Nitric oxide has proven to help memory and behavior, support the immune system’s fight against bacteria and tumors, assist with blood pressure regulation, inflammation reduction, sleep quality, endurance and strength, gastric motility, and both men and women’s sexual health. So, how do we increase our production of nitric oxide, a molecule our body so desperately needs?
Since When Is Red Wine Good For You?
Health professionals concur that red wine is proven to have numerous general benefits, while specifically supporting heart health. Red wine is high in antioxidants, known as polyphenols, used in your body to protect your body’s cells and tissues and the lining of blood vessels in your heart. Unlike white wine, these polyphenols originate from the colored skin of grapes, allowing a higher level of support for the normal functioning of cardiovascular system and other body systems.
Resveratrol is the key ingredient in red wine that helps maintain blood vessel integrity, aids in supporting cholesterol levels already in a healthy range, and assists with normal blood flow. While these facts hold true for moderate consumption of red wine, drinking alcohol does add extra calories, can interfere with medications, and may impair judgment.
