A Boston University School of Medicine study suggests short bursts of nitrites can be beneficial in protecting the heart from stress. The study, researchers said, demonstrated for the first time that short elevations in circulating levels of nitrites are sufficient to have a lasting impact on the heart by modulating its oxidation status and its protein machinery. Nitrite is an oxidation product of the short-lived cell signaling molecule nitric oxide and, until recently, was thought to be...
