Nitric Oxide Gives You the Blues

Nitric oxide gives you the blues, or, more correctly, blue light creates nitric oxide.

According to Philips Light & Health (“Blue LED therapy,” 2004-2015) …

“When blue LED light illuminates the skin, a variety of natural processes are stimulated. One of these effects is the non-enzymatic production of the important signal molecule nitric oxide (NO) in the skin. Strikingly, the irradiation with blue LED light does not only lead to the production of NO in the outer skin layers, but NO has also been shown to be present in physiologically significant amounts in deeper regions of the skin (dermis).”


According to Christoph Suschek & Christian Opländer (2010) …

30 minutes of irradiation with blue LED light (453 nanometers) increases nitric oxide …

7.3 to 11.0-fold from zero to 1.5 millimeters

7.9 to 11.6-fold from 1.5 to 3.0 millimeters

9.4 to 15.6-fold from 3.0 to 4.5. millimeters

This is nothing to brag about.


Ray Peat (KMUD Radio, Dec. 19, 2014) said …

“Nitric oxide is a very powerful poison of oxidative metabolism.”

Estrogen + Nitric Oxide = Breast Cancer.


Ray Peat (“Aging Eyes, Infant Eyes, and Excitable Tissues,” 2006-2016) wrote …

“Cytochrome oxidase is one of the enzymes damaged by stress and by blue light, and activated or restored by red light, thyroid, and progesterone. It’s a copper enzyme, so it’s likely to be damaged by excess iron.”


Ambulances use blue light to slow breathing and blood flow, a capital idea for emergencies but not suited for everyday life.

Blue light helps septicemia, but won’t do a doggone thing for Yellow Fat Disease.

Yes, red light opposes waxy liver as well as other damage caused by fish oil and cod liver oil.

A waxy liver is a source of toxic nitric oxide. Scads of it.

The sole disadvantage of using red light is that your neighbors will think you’re operating a house of ill repute.


Are beets high in nitrates easily converted into nitric oxide in the body?

Yes, No, Maybe.

Yes. Beets grown with synthetic fertilizers are high in toxic nitrates.

No. Organic beets are low in nitrates.

Maybe. Beets grown with synthetic fertilizer can be cooked and dextrinized to neutralize these naughty nitrates.

SuperBeets? You must be joking!

L-arginine? Walk big circles around it.

    Nonorganic nitrate-accumulating food crops include alfalfa, amaranth leaves, barley, beets, carrots, celery, collards, corn, eggplant, lamb’s quarters, lettuce, oats, radishes,sorghum, spinach, turnip greens, wheat, etc.

    They gobble up nitrate and don’t know how to stop.–e-books.php

    Do you wear nylon and polyester? Do you wear them just not next to the skin? Do they off-gas, or contain VOC’s? Was SNG into his natural fibres?

      Swami Nitty-Gritty advised wearing natural cotton but wasn’t uptight about it.

      He DEFINITELY advised therapists to wear cotton to avoid “catching” diseases by contact or even by being in the same room.

      I’ve had it happen to me. It took me several months to marshal the courage to do sessions again.
