Nitric oxide is a compound that is released during exercise and after injury. It has many beneficial properties for horses, making products and supplements that aid in nitric oxide production a great component to incorporate within their regular diet. Assisi Animal Health explores three benefits of nitric oxide for healing in equines:

1. Regulate blood flow. Nitric oxide causes the blood vessels to dilate, which decreases blood pressure and helps to prevent heart disease. This is an effective technique in preventing exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage among racehorses.

2. Improves training recovery. Cell repair, stress relief, and improved blood flow are all direct results of nitric oxide production. All of these aspects are imperative for recovering from a tough training session for horses that race or compete in dressage.

3. Tendon and ligament repair. The production of nitric oxide promotes healing in both soft and hard tissues. For horses especially, the damage that occurs to their tendons and ligaments from consistent running and jumping can be remedied with extra production of this compound.

While nitric oxide naturally occurs in the body from exercise, the most beneficial way to stimulate healing is to encourage higher production, since it promotes cell communication and self-healing. However, too much can also be harmful, which is why targeted pulsed electromagnetic therapy products such as the Assisi Loop® are adept at producing the right amount of nitric oxide for your horse's benefit.
