What is Nitric Oxide?
Nitric Oxide is synthesized in the body from the amino acid L-Arginine. It has been shown to be essential for producing cervical fluids needed for getting pregnant.
Who is L-Arginine for?
Women who are experiencing dry cervical mucous around ovulation and/or overactive uterus. Cervical mucous is essential to carry the sperm to the egg. Nitric oxide is also helpful during implantation time by stimulating the endometrial fluids necessary for being “sticky” for the egg to implant. Nitric oxide also increases circulation to the reproductive system which increases libido and sexual stimulation.
What dosage is recommended?
Around 4000 mg a day is what some studies are suggesting. Most people make there own so supplementation may not be necessary unless experiencing dry cervical fluids.
What foods contain L-Arginine?
All nuts, meats, chocolate, dairy, fish.
There is a product made with L-Arginine specific for increasing cervical fluids. It is called FertileCm.
