Nutrition and Erectile Dysfunction

Before we get into Nutrition we need to get to know Nitric Oxide a little bit better. We came across it as one of the ingredients for your Dick’s erection: ‘your body’s nervous system causes the inner lining of your Dick’s blood vessels (known as the endothelium) to release Nitric Oxide, a gas molecule that makes another molecule, cCMP cause the surrounding internal tissue to relax.’

Nitric Oxide

By all means look it up in Wikipedia as it has a big role to play in the fields of neuroscience, physiology and immunology. For our purposes we are only interested in its work on erections Cialis pills Australia. Some basic relevant facts:

– Nitric Oxide is a relatively unstable gas molecule (an electrically neutral group of two or more atoms) made up of an atom of Oxygen and an atom of Nitrogen, with the chemical formula NO.

– Nitric oxide is highly reactive with other molecules and the bond that makes NO can be easily broken. So, despite the desirability for the erection process NO can also be part of the baddie free radicals reactions that can be harmful to blood vessel health.

– NO itself has a lifetime of a few seconds, diffuses freely across membranes and this makes it ideal to travel between adjacent cells.

– NO is produced in the body by an enzyme called nitric oxide synthase which converts the amino
acid L-arginine to nitric oxide and L-citrulline.

You may also recognise NO as the awful gas produced by car exhausts and any internal combustion engine. Now, before you go out and buy a couple dozen cylinders of NO gas or, breathe exhaust fumes, keep in mind that chronic expression of NO is also associated with various cancers and inflammatory conditions due to its reactivity. So, why not let your beautifully designed body do the work with a little help from what you eat and experience. Yes, Lifestyle & Nutrition again!
