Herbal Blend Boosts Nitric Oxide Availability In At-Risk Cardiovascular Patients

April 1, 2011: 11:38 AM EST
Scientists in the U.S. who tested a proprietary herbal blend in a clinical trial with 30 older adults with cardiovascular risk factors found that it improves nitric oxide metabolism and enhances the effectiveness of an enzyme associated with a healthier cardiovascular system. The special blend of beetroot and hawthorn berry, developed at the University of Texas and licensed by Neogenis Laboratories, is called Neo40. It works by improving the bioavailability of nitric oxide, an effective vasodilator that reduces blood pressure and eases strain on the heart. According to the researchers, the herbal blend “shows promise in restoring nitric oxide homeostasis in human subjects at risk for cardiovascular disease for use as a dietary supplement.”
