I have no idea why h2o2 might be causing high BP.
But I have read that there might be some connection between h2o2 injestion and Nitric Oxide production within the body.
When NO levels are low, BP will rise. Hence some protein and anti-oxidants can help ppl getting high BP as well.
BTW, my heart rate has stabilised just by increasing the protein. I prefer whey protein.http://www.diabetesselfmanagement.com/articles/Diabetes_Definitions/Nitric_Ox...
Here is what I know about NO so far:
- Now NO is used by the body in dense tissue like muscles and brain and NO may be depleted by these critters and their bacteria. Certainly I stumbled onto at least some of this by adding Arginine which is traditionally used to increase the NO and ATP synthesis: http://aor.ca/int/related_research/arginine.php
- We also know that adding NO (gas) can make parasites more active. Lots of lit out there where tapeworms have been quite and woken up by adding NO. Guess once NO is depleted and they have chewed up most B vits they just hang out.
- We also know that at least one of the species of mycoplasma, a known co-infection in Lyme, steals sterol from the blood stream. This makes the red blood cells larger and bloated; they in turn steal sterol (or other cholesterol) from the vessels. This always, let me repeat this; ALWAYS gives low blood pressure for years if not decades only once the vessels begin to collapse does it turn into high blood pressure. I wouldn’t be surprised that a good dose of H2O2 puts an end to this theft and turns up the BP immediately.
But my NO research is still quite fresh, so take all this with a grain of sea salt…
NO is one of the few gaseous signaling molecules known. It is a key biological messenger, playing a role in a variety of biological processes. Nitric oxide, known as the 'endothelium-derived relaxing factor', or 'EDRF', is biosynthesised from arginine and oxygen by various nitric oxide synthase (NOS) enzymes and by reduction of inorganic nitrate. The endothelium (inner lining) of blood vessels use nitric oxide to signal the surrounding smooth muscle to relax, thus dilating the artery and increasing blood flow. The production of nitric oxide is elevated in populations living at high-altitudes, which helps these people avoid hypoxia. Effects include blood vessel dilatation, neurotransmission, modulation of the hair cycle, and penile erections. Nitroglycerin and amyl nitrite serve as vasodilators because they are converted to nitric oxide in the body. Sildenafil, popularly known by the trade name Viagra, stimulates erections primarily by enhancing signalling through the nitric oxide pathway in the penis.
Nitric oxide is also generated by macrophages and neutrophils as part of the human immune response. Nitric oxide is toxic to bacteria and other human pathogens. In response, however, many bacterial pathogens have evolved mechanisms for nitric oxide resistance.
Nitric oxide can contribute to reperfusion injury when excessive amount produced during reperfusion (following a period of ischemia) reacts with superoxide to produce the damaging free radical peroxynitrite. In contrast, inhaled nitric oxide has been shown to help survival and recovery from paraquat poisoning, which produces lung tissue damaging superoxide and hinders NOS metabolism.
In plants, nitric oxide can be produced by any of four routes: (i) nitric oxide synthase (as in animals), (ii) by plasma membrane-bound nitrate reductase, (iii) by mitochondrial electron transport chain, or (iv) by non-enzymatic reactions. It is a signaling molecule, acts mainly against oxidative stress and also plays a role in plant pathogen interactions. Treating cut flowers and other plants with nitric oxide has been shown to lengthen the time before wilting.
A biologically important reaction of nitric oxide is S-nitrosylation, the conversion of thiol groups, including cysteine residues in proteins, to form S-nitrosothiols (RSNOs). S-Nitrosylation is a mechanism for dynamic, post-translational regulation of most or all major classes of protein.
Everyone requires nitric oxide to carry out key physiological processes within the body. From a bodybuilder's perspective, nitric oxide supplementation may prove useful in increasing growth due to increases in blood flow to certain areas of the body. Signs of deficiency, on the other hand, include physical weakness and extreme fatigue. Most "nitric oxide" supplements contain the amino acid Arginine-alpha-keto-glutarate.>>
Perhaps in the presence of H2O2 or O3, the nascent oxygen reacts with NO in the body and converts it into NO2. We need NO for lowered BP and normal heart beat. So inhaling of H2O2 maybe harmful. More research needs to be done.... alternatively, we must supplement with plenty of amino acids to counteract the side effects...
WOW, the learning never ends.
