What is Nitric Oxide?
A signaling molecule produced by the endothelial cell linings along 100,000 miles of blood vessels and capillaries in the body.
Certain wavelengths of light help the body to release more of nitric oxide. Red and infra-red light waves, passing directly through the skin, induces the the body to release more of this critical molecule. Along with blue light, these are wavelengths of light you receive with light therapy from Essential Chiropractic & Wellness.
The Nobel Prize of medicine was awarded in 1998 for understanding how it works.
What do Scientists Know About Nitric Oxide?
Nitric Oxide floats around the body at speeds almost too fast to measure. It appears to travel just below the speed of light.
NO is a free radical creator and identifier determining which bad cells are to be destroyed. It is involved in the process to oxidize the bad fats and toxins in the body. Without NO, we would have a toxic dump in our body.
NO facilitates the changing and maturity of thought into action. Deficiency is at the root of many disease conditions including arthritis and cancer.
Studies Have Shown that Nitric Oxide:
- Keeps blood vessels open, elastic and functioning properly
- Kills bacteria
- Stimulates your brain
- Defends against tumor cells
- Increases oxygen levels throughout the body
- Increases blood flow and nutrient delivery
- Decreases pain
- Decreases numbness
- Increases Lymphatic activity
