Nitro Supplements & High BP


#1
Are these supplements bad for people with high blood pressure..

I had read that beet juice helps reduce high blood pressure because of it's nitrogen content, but I read a bottle of some NO2 supplest and said it was not good for people with HBP?

Any ideas on the subject?
thanks as always,
Chris

Why are you thinking you need no2? just curious.

Well if NO products worked like they said they did then you would increase nitric oxide production and thus dialate your blood vessels. Without an increase of blood volume you should then go hypotensive and pass out. If they worked…

What I’m saying is the premise behind NO products is bunk and they are just a drain on the wallet, and no they probably won’t cause hypertension unless there are excessive stimulants in the product.
