What is Nitric Oxide?

Nitric oxide, or “NO”, is a naturally occurring gas formed in the body that performs a number of important chemical signaling functions responsible for overall health. NO is enzymatically produced from arginine by many cells throughout the body and thus NO-based therapeutics have many potential applications in medicine.

Naturally Occurring Antiviral and Immunomodulatory Effects1

Nitric Oxide Safety
Nitric oxide is produced naturally by the body and is a substance that’s vital to our daily lives. Because we make nitric oxide in our bodies, we can more easily tolerate the application of appropriate concentrations of nitric oxide-based therapies.
