Nitric Oxide

Nitric Oxide

Nitric Oxide is mainly found in the hypothalamus which is the controller of enzyme excretion, and controls the release of oxytocin and vasopressin. In the adrenal gland, NOS is highly concentrated in a web of neurons that stimlate adrenal cells to make adrenaline. Nitric Oxide is prominent in fibers and terminals in the posterior pituitary gland but its function has not yet been established. It is also found in the intestine, cerebral cortex, and the endothelial layer of the blood vessels. Nitric Oxide participates in the release of Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) from the hypothalamus. Oxytocin stimulates the release of luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) by releasing nitric oxide. The sleep hormone melatonin reduces Nitric Oxide activity in the hypothalamus of rats. For this reason melatonin might be able to be used to reduce the intenstiy of kundalini activity it might also offer some free radical protection as well.


Nitric Oxide has many roles in the cardiovascular system as it is a blood vessel dilator, it thins the blood, reduces platelet stickness, is involved in blood coagulation and wound healing and is associated with the hearts function. The endothelium inner lining of blood vessels uses nitric oxide to signal the surrounding smooth muscle to relax, thus dilating the artery and increasing blood flow. Nitric Oxide And its associated release of vasopressin is obviously a major factor in the phenomena of heart expansions during an awakening. It has been shown that hemoglobin is a major transport vehicle for Nitric Oxide in blood.
