The iPhone app mentions that the amino acid Arginine and it's role in the production of nitric oxide (NO) is somehow important to Type B.  I don't understand how.  Is Arginine and NO beneficial to Type B or is the opposite true?

NO is receiving a lot of attention in bodybuilding and fitness circles.  It apparently dilates blood vessels to allow greater blood flow and increase muscle volume. It even benefits men with erectile dysfunction for the same reason.  To increase one's NO, one consumes more Arginine.

I have avoided unnecessary Arginine since learning that it increases the frequency and severity of cold sores.  Arginine is abundant in some of my avoid foods such as corn but is also in some beneficial foods like walnuts.

Nitric Oxide, known to influence many of our most basic health processes, including the speed and ease at which we learn. In our bodies Nitric Oxide functions as a “signaling molecule,” influencing learning, blood pressure, heart/arteries, immunity and the nervous system.

Nitric Oxide is also known to enhance the flow of blood to the muscles, bringing with it much needed nutrients, oxygen and hormones. Nitricycle blends synergistic botanicals with the amino acid L-Arginine, a natural potentiator for Nitric Oxide, known to sustain levels of Nitric Oxide in plasma, prolonging its enhancing effect on muscles and nerves, thus making the nutrient popular for performance nutrition. Although most anyone can benefit from healthy modulation of nitric oxide metabolism, there is some evidence blood types B and AB may be more at risk for health problems associated with imbalances in nitric oxide metabolism.

I can see where the confusion comes from.  It looks like we type B's and AB's may need more nitric oxide, although the last sentence is vague as to which direction we need to go in, if we had not read the earlier paragraph.  Especially since there is much written by others about the imbalances created by too much nitric oxide in the system (not efficiently clearing it).

btw...since I rebegun the intake of L'arginine, I do feel much better... a good aid also for muscle/mental relaxations, especially for intp/j's   

2-3'000 mg's daily   a good aid for a 12 to ... hours job daily....

My husband, type O, was prescribed arginine to lower his BP.  He was told not to take it with in three hours before or after any protien.  Do you all think that's necessary?  It does hinder him taking it.  Of course I can't get that man to do much that good for him.  He doesn't take his arginine because he is to busy eating his avoids, ugh.

btw.. I'm nearly convinced that higher bp is merely due to too much of loooong lasting
mental/psychological issues....observe how peeps get older.... and you're going to receive the response...

Your reasoning appears correct.  I re-read the app's discussion of NO and it appears to emphasize NO's role in healthy neurotransmitter function.  Since Type B's are similar to Type A's in that we have higher-than-average Cortisol responses to stress, NO's contribution to endorphins regulation is an important countermeasure.

Type B's, unfortunately, eliminate NO more rapidly than other blood types.  The imbalance mentioned must be one of too little NO.

It would be great if the good doctor would elaborate on this subject.

First, the title should read nitric oxide, as nitrous oxide is the anesthetic "laughing gas"...

I didn't want to paste the whole article, but essentially, L-arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide(NO), so as long as your body is processing the amino acid into NO, eating more foods rich in that amino acid will increase your supply of NO.

Food sources of L-arginine

L-arginine is found in high content in protein rich foods such as peanuts, walnuts, brazilnuts, cocunut, animal products (milk and milk products, pork, beef, chicken, turkey), seafoods, cereals (oats and wheat), and chocolate. Legumes such as soybean and chickpea are also rich natural sources of L-arginine.

[b][/b]OK then... milk, beef, oats, legumes- I think he's getting enough NO in his diet. I can cross this worry off my list.

I always took the statement to mean we needed more NO.

According to something I read on medicalnewstoday.com, the sun can provide us with free nitric oxide. It seems that our skins contain both nitrite (NO2) and nitrate (NO3). The action of sunlight can convert nitrate into nitric oxide and nitrite. I don't know if a study has been done on seasonal variation of blood pressure, but if this is correct, blood pressure must be lower in the summer.
