Fat Overrides Effects of Vitamin C

...ds by converting the nitrosating species back into nitric oxide (NO). However, NO diffuses rapidly to lipids, where it reacts with oxygen to reform nitrosating species. The presence of lipids therefore overrides the protective effect of vitamin C against the formation of harmful compounds. Source-Eure...

Garlic Plus Vitamin C may Reduce Blood Pressure

...o be due to effects of garlic on the production of nitric oxide (NO) in endothelium cells (cells that line the walls of blood vessels). NO is a molecule used by the endothelium to signal surrounding muscle to relax, thereby dilating the blood vessels and increasing blood flow. Indeed, measurements of NO l...
