Nitric Acid Disorders

Nitric oxide (NO) is synthesized by nearly every type of cell in the human body, and it plays a major role in blood vessel health through its vasodilation properties. NO functions in increasing blood flow and lowering blood pressure. Defects in synthesis or functionality of NO promote salt retention, contributing to salt-sensitive hypertension.

Research has shown that the non-essential amino acid L-citrulline boosts bodily production of NO. L-Citrulline is converted in the kidneys to L-arginine and NO. Solace Nutrition has developed Cytolline, a medical food for the dietary management of nitric oxide production disorders (as well as MELAS syndrome and urea cycle disorders). Cytolline is a pure, soluble, L-Citrulline powder.
