Video: Nutritional Solutions for Endothelial Health 
Optimizing Nitric Oxide Production Via Targeted Nutrition

Cardiovascular function should be strategically supported via targeted nutritional factors that
support nitric oxide (NO) synthesis, which is essential for healthy endothelial function and blood flow. Arginine, citrulline, cocoa polyphenols, folate, vitamin C, and magnesium help protect and maintain NO synthesis
In this endothelial health animation video, you will learn how each nutritional factor uniquely impacts the NO synthesis pathway. Biochemical and mechanistic insights are coupled with key endothelial function clinical measurement tools, to help you most effectively support and evaluate the endothelial health trajectory of each patient
