ramakentesh Posted April 30, 2009 Report Share Posted April 30, 2009 Some of Dr Julian Stewart's studies suggest that a subset of patients may suffer from POTS as a result of elevated angiontensin II levels increasing oxidisive stress and reducing endothial/vascular nitric oxide levels. This basically means that they suffer from reduced blood flow and after exercise malaise that is quite similar to that seen in congestive heart failure.There are supplements that increase nitric oxide bioavailability but a simple one that may help is Vitamin C - which has a particular action against two suspected causes ofreduced bioavailability of nitric oxide; elevated angiotensin II or elevated C-reactive protein which is elevated in chronic inflammation. http://www.biomedexperts.com/Abstract.bme/...forearm_vesselsThis might be a relatively benign way of testing this hypothesis - although Id try it from mandarins or fruit rather than as a supplement to increase absorption.
