Mantra chanting produces the all important Nitric Oxide

All Beej mantras end with Anuswaram MMMM , which produces Nitric oxide.  

Nitric oxide is a molecule that our body produces to help its 50 trillion cells communicate with each other by transmitting signals throughout the entire body.  People with diabetes usually have lower levels of Nitric oxide than patients without diabetes.

  • Treating cut flowers and other plants with Nitric oxide has been shown to lengthen the time before wilting.
  • The Opiate drug Morphine , the addictive pain killer, works by an increase in Nitric Oxide release.
  • Nitroglycerin and Amyl Nitrite tablets serve as vasodilators because they are converted to Nitric Oxide in the body, to ease angina pain ( heart pain ).

Nitric oxide is a gas that affects blood vessels

Nitric oxide is a gas that affects blood vessels.  It is a simple molecule, having two atoms – nitrogen and oxygen.  But it does an incredible array of things.  Our blood vessels make nitric oxide. It’s a potent and facile dilator. Nitric oxide or nitrogen monoxide, molecule has the chemical formula NO.  It is a free radical and is an important intermediate in the chemical industry.

When the human body reaches the age of 27 years, the secretion of nitric oxide is at its peak. As you get  older and the production of nitric oxide in the human body declines gradually, more from age 42 onwards. In mammals including humans, NO is an important cellular signaling molecule involved in many physiological and pathological processes. It is a powerful vasodilator with a short half-life of a few seconds in the blood.

Nitric oxide controls blood flow in our body.  It controls our vascular resistance , the blood pressure . When your body produces sufficient amounts of Nitric oxide, then your blood vessels are relaxed, and your blood pressure is low.

Conversely if you’re not making enough or Nitric Oxide production is inactivated,  then  your blood vessels become contracted and your blood pressure shoots up.  So this is an important feature of the blood vessels is its  ability to control its own diameter automatically.

The endothelium (inner lining) of blood vessels uses Nitric oxide to signal the surrounding smooth muscle to relax, thus resulting in vasodilation and increasing blood flow. Nitric oxide is highly reactive (having a lifetime of a few seconds), yet diffuses freely across membranes.

Nitric oxide is part of the body’s self-defense mechanism.  It can defend against bacteria.  It also defends against tumor cells.  Nitric Oxide in higher concentrations can actually halt the growth of cells or can halt bacterial growth, so it’s a defense against infection. Macrophages, certain cells of the immune system, produce Nitric oxide in order to kill invading bacteria.

It is a defense against tumor and cancer. It is a defense against hardening of the arteries too.

Normally, in a young person who does not have hardened arteries,  the blood vessels make sufficient amounts of Nitric oxide, and there is no need to take any medicine. When people get old and have heart problems due to hardened arteries and angina pain, you can give Nitric oxide –  (nitroglycerin in a pill kept under the tongue ).

Or you can improve the release of Nitric oxide from the blood vessels themselves and enhance the body’s ability to make Nitric oxide, or for the matter, protect Nitric oxide from being broken down.

Nitric oxide – is our self-defense system against athrosclerosis.  The endothelial lining of the blood vessel is like Teflon.  It keeps things from sticking to the vessel wall.  The reason it has this property of Teflon is because it releases nitric oxide, so it’s a non-sticky surface because it’s releasing nitric oxide, which not only relaxes the blood vessel but also prevents things from sticking to the vessel.

Nitric Oxide is of critical importance as a mediator of vasodilation in blood vessels.  The vasodilatory actions of Nitric oxide plays a key role in renal control of extracellular fluid homeostasis and is essential for the regulation of blood flow and blood pressure.

Nitroglycerin, Amyl nitrite, “poppers” (isobutyl nitrite or similar) and other nitrite derivatives are used in the treatment of heart disease and Angine pectoris.  The compounds get converted to Nitric oxide which in turn dilates the coronary artery (blood vessels around the heart), thereby increasing its blood supply.  These drugs, however, are predominantly venodilators, dilating peripheral veins and hence reducing venous return and preload to the heart.

This reduces the oxygen requirement of the myocardium and subsequently lessens the heart pain. By dilating (expanding) the veins, Nitric oxide drugs lower arterial pressure and left ventricular filling pressure.  This vasodilation does not decrease the volume of blood the heart pumps, but rather it decreases the force the heart muscle must exert to pump the same volume of blood.

The interior surface (endothelium) of your arteries produce nitric oxide. When plaque builds up in your arteries, called atherosclerosis, you reduce your capacity to produce Nitric oxide, which is why physicians prescribe nitroglycerin for heart and stroke patients.

Since life began, the Earth has been surrounding and protecting all living things with a natural frequency pulsation of 7.83 HZ— the ancient Indian Rishis called OM.   Alpha brain Frequency of 7.83 HZ on the EEG,  is also known popularly as Schumann’s Resonance .  These frequencies start at 7.8 Hz and progress by approximately 5.9 Hz. (7.8, 13.7, 19.6, 25.5, 31.4, 37.3, and 43.2 Hz.).  7.83 HZ or the ALPHA frequency  is the gateway that leads into deeper states of consciousness.

Most people are in an alpha state during the short time immediately before they fall asleep and when the conscious nervous system switches over to the subconscious. Alpha is also the home of the window frequency known as the Schumann Resonance, which is the resonant frequency of the earth’s electromagnetic field.

When we intentionally generate alpha waves and go into resonance with that earthy frequency, we naturally feel better, refreshed, in tune, in synch. It is, in fact, environmental synchronization. he first astronauts and cosmonauts, who, out in space, also were no longer exposed to the Schumann waves.


Now modern spacecrafts are said to contain a device which simulates the Schumann waves. By producing a 7.83 Hz pulse with a field generator (Schumann device), we can counter the effects of the irritating man-made fields. By replicating the Earth’s natural rhythm, we may be providing ourselves (at least in our immediate vicinity) with a more healthy environment.
