- Is the molecule nitric oxide responsible for healing blood vessels?
- How does nitric oxide heal the blood vessels?
I watched a documentary about the healing effects of nitric oxide. In the video I saw a cardiologist show an X-ray picture of one of his damaged heart blood vessels, and then another X-ray picture showing the same heart blood vessel completely healed. He claimed it was due to a radical change in his diet of consuming lots of nitrogen rich vegetables which the body in turn converted to nitric oxide. Is this possible?
The original source was the youtube video Forks Over Knifes, however it was recently taken down. I have provide the following links which provide a little bit of information :
Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn was the one who made the statement about heart health and nitric oxide, also showing the xray pictures of one of his colleague cardiologists in the documentary.
