    Both of these articles are about how inhibition of nNOS and eNOS and potential overstimulation of iNOS could be mechanisms underlying specific symptoms of ME/CFS.

    Just how hypothetical is this overproduction of iNOS, I wonder? My NOS2 snps, I am told, are downregulations. I suspect that would be one reason my EBV antibodies are in the stratosphere (22 years after having infectious mono).

    I can't be the only person here with a high viral load, either.

    A very interesting read, nonetheless. I'm starting to understand nitric oxide a little better. Thank you, Andrew!

    Vert interesting stuff! My question is, has anyone tried nitric oxide supplements and what were the results?

    I don't think people supplement nitric oxide itself but use things that increase nitric oxide in the body, which are e.g. nitroglycerine and isosorbide dinitrate. Some people have reported their experiences with these - try a search using the top-right box.
