The research

In 1998, three American researchers, Prof. Robert Furchgott, Prof. Louis J. Ignarro and Prof. Ferid Murad were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for their discover on the endothelium, the single-cell inner layer of blood vessels in contact with blood. They demonstrate that the endothelium, according to the variations of the cardiac rhythm, produces a gaseous molecule vital for the equilibrium of our body, the Nitric Oxide (NO).

A major factor of efficiency in the diffusion of blood flow in our body, NO acts as a vasodilator of the vessels and contributes to the optimization of microcirculation and cellular exchanges. Furthermore, vascular NO plays a very important role in controlling blood quality in regulating inflammation and oxidative stress. Today being able to stimulate and to train in a very targeted way the endothelial reactivity of our vessels, without any effort for the body, offers new treatment perspectives in the field of Health, Sport and Well-being.

Some specialists consider the endothelium as ‘our own internal pharmaceutical factory’ capable of preserving our body’s functions.
