Amazing Foods to Promote Nitric Oxide Generation in the Body

Nitric Oxide (NO), often hailed as the “miracle molecule,” plays a crucial role in our body’s overall health by acting as a natural vasodilator. This means it helps widen blood vessels, improving blood flow, and supporting circulation – an essential aspect, especially when combined with therapies like Photobiomodulation (PBM).

Enhancing NO levels can maximize the benefits of light therapy sessions, among other health advantages. Here’s a look at 13 amazing foods known for their NO-boosting capabilities:

1. Beets and Beet Greens

Rich in nitrates, beets enhance vasodilation, potentially lowering blood pressure. With beet products like juices and chips readily available, incorporating them into your diet has never been easier.

2. Dark Chocolate – Raw Cacao

Raw cacao increases NO levels, aiding in blood pressure management and reducing inflammation. Opt for dark chocolate with high cacao content and minimal sugar.

3. Citrus Fruits

Oranges, lemons, and grapefruits are packed with vitamin C, a critical component in increasing nitric oxide synthase activity, which helps boost NO production.

4. Walnuts

High in L-arginine, walnuts and other nuts, when soaked and chewed well, can significantly enhance NO levels in the body.

5. Arugula

Known as the highest source of nitrates, arugula is perfect for salads or green drinks, directly boosting your NO levels.

6. Spinach

This nutrient-rich leafy green is another excellent source of nitrates, easily added to various dishes to support NO production.

7. Swiss Chard

Beyond its nitrate content, Swiss chard provides essential vitamins A and C, contributing to overall vascular health.

8. Celery

Depending on growing conditions, celery can offer up to 250 mg of nitrates per 100 grams, making it a powerful NO booster.

9. Watermelon

High in L-citrulline, watermelon supports the conversion to L-arginine and NO, though moderation is advised due to its sugar content.

10. Pomegranate

With its ability to boost NO and provide anti-inflammatory benefits, pomegranate is a superfruit for promoting vascular health.

11. Capsaicin – Hot Chili Peppers

The heat in chili peppers isn’t just for flavor – capsaicin also enhances NO levels, improving circulation.

12. Onions and Garlic

Both are sources of citrulline, an amino acid that plays a role in NO production, enhancing vascular health.

13. Parsley

Rich in vitamins and nitrates, parsley is another excellent addition to meals for those looking to boost their NO levels.

Incorporating these foods into your diet can support your body’s nitric oxide production, enhancing not just circulation but offering a range of health benefits that complement therapies like PBM. Always aim for organic produce to avoid pesticides and ensure the highest nutrient content, especially for those heavily sprayed. By paying attention to these dietary choices, you can support your body’s health and optimize the effects of treatments like Photobiomodulation.

I’ve been using NeurocarePro for years, and their quality is always consistent. They have helped my practice with support. I highly recommend using NeurocarePro products and accessing their team of professionals for assistance with implementation and protocol needs.”

Dr. Richard Busch, DC, Clinic Owner

“UNBELIEVABLE Results!!! I purchased the 2-port controller with the lumbar pad from my doctor in hopes for improving the appearance of a 30yr old keloid scar on my stomach (it was raised & discolored) I am over the moon thrilled with the results. It has not only smoothed out to my skin surface but has completely returned to my original skin tone. I have actually had surgery to revise this incision with zero results, so as you can imagine Neurocare Pro therapy has provided me with a small miracle. Cannot thank you enough.“

Kim G., Patient
