This is part 1/3 from the chapter “vitamin N”  from my new book “Natures Detox.”   Theviagra publishers say that it will be ready for the paper copy by Thanksgiving!

The chemical compound nitrate (NO3-) has been given a bad rap for years because it is considered to be a molecule that is associated with contamination of water sources.    This contamination of nitrates in the drinking water can be a deadly situation for newborns babies as well.  In babies less than  6 months of age, nitrate binds firmly to the hemoglobin in the blood preventing it from binding to oxygen.  This condition called methemoglobinemia causes the baby to turn blue from hypoxia (Blue Baby Syndrome) and can incur brain damage or death if not treated.   It is the single most dangerous health condition caused by nitrate contaminated water.  This is why nitrates in water, food or veggies should not be given to infants less than six months old until their digestive system matures.   In adults their systemic enzymes are mature and quickly unbind nitrite when it binds to hemoglobin  resulting in no health issues.

Even though one source of nitrate is drinking water, the majority, about 80% of our day to day source,  is from VEGETABLES in our diet.   Nitrate is such an ESSENTIAL nutrient that our own bodies will naturally produce about 1 milligram for every kilogram of body weight-  so there  must be some reason why!  Vegetarians consume as much as 250 mg of nitrates daily which is considered an acceptable amount by the World Health Organization.  Since vegetables and vegetable based diets are universally studied to improve diseases of all types, how is it that a ” bad contaminant” like nitrate is found most plentiful in the very food and diet considered to be the healthiest of all?

Plants assimilate the nitrate from the soil and then they pass it onto us when we eat the plant.  The nitrate is then converted in our mouth into nitrite (NO2-)  by our own healthy bacteria.  We swallow the food and the nitrites are picked up by our blood circulation and transported to all our cells where it is converted into a very powerful molecule called nitric oxide (NO).   Nitric oxide is the molecule responsible for the powerful healing effects of nitrate.   In fact modern medicine has synthesized drugs to mimic these beneficial effects of nitric oxide.  Nitroglycerin is converted to nitric oxide in the heart to bring blood and oxygen when a heart attack threatens, Inomax (nitric oxide) gas is delivered to promote vasodilation in the lungs of premature babies, and Viagra promotes nitric oxide release in the penis to open circulation and sustain erections.   See what an important role nitric oxide plays in oxygenation and circulation?

stay tuned for part 2 and 3 coming later today and tomorrow
