Heart Health and Aging
Keeping our heart, veins and arteries healthy is crucial to aging well. In continuing to offer therapies to reduce the effects of aging we offer Cleveland Heart Labs Inflammatory testing which can determine potential disease process in the veins and arteries. We then follow up with treatment of Neo40 which increases our ability to produce Nitric Oxide which is an important element that we lose with aging.
Nitric oxide (N-O) is a gas composed of one molecule of nitrogen bonded to one molecule of oxygen. It serves as a critical signaling molecule in the cardiovascular and circulatory system. That means it affects absolutely every function in our bodies—it’s at the foundational core because without circulation, none of our body’s other systems can work as intended.
Our cardiovascular system relies on Nitric Oxide. So, no matter your age or stage of life, N-O is critical to your health. This is especially poignant when you consider that millions of Americans have blood pressure in the higher range of normal.
This essential molecule signals our blood vessels to relax and expand, creating greater efficiency in the body, greater nutrient delivery, greater oxygenation and so on to every system, organ and tissue in the body. It also supports healthy blood pressure. The point is that N-O is truly linked to everything we do and every breath we take
If we dive even deeper, we’ll see that Nitric Oxide is tied closely to endothelial function. The endothelium is the tissue that forms a single layer of cells lining our blood vessels and heart.
Growing evidence suggests that promoting optimal endothelial function is associated with increased cardiovascular health. N-O helps keep the endothelium healthy; a healthy endothelium helps produce more N-O. Maintaining the proper functioning of this cycle is important for those who want to achieve their personal best at any age.
Nitric Oxide signals our blood vessels to relax, helping to dilate the arteries and increase circulation. It is essential to our very existence. And while it’s abundant in our body’s systems, it’s unstable and depletes, requiring it to be replenished.
Dubbed the “miracle molecule,” the discovery of Nitric Oxide, the first gas to be identified as such, won the Nobel Prize in 1998. This discovery is what HumanN/Neo40 products are built on.
