200% More Nitric Oxide with a Combination of Garlic and Vitamin C

Today I’ll share with you a trick that’ll significantly decrease your blood pressure, and literally skyrockets your nitric oxide production.

The info that I’m about to present has actually been studied with humans, and what’s even better is that both of the ‘items’ used with this trick (garlic and vitamin C) are also known for their ability to decrease cortisol levels and to increase testosterone levels.

So by doing this little inexpensive trick, you’re doing multiple great things for your body simultaneously.

Here’s what I’m talking about:

A Combination of Vitamin C and Garlic

garlic with vitamin c to decrease high blood pressure levels naturallyIt’s a well researched fact that vitamin C is good for your arteries, and it’s also seen in multiple studies that garlic drops blood pressure levels quite nicely in human studies.

But what nobody seems to know, is that both of them in combination will skyrocket your nitric oxide production, and decrease blood pressure much more efficiently than any drug for such purpose. Needless to say that this trick is also 100% natural and side effect free.

The researchers in Pharmaceutical Research Institute at Albany College of Pharmacy found this out in their human study.

This is what they did:

Adam Mousa and his team of researchers had a group of men and women with high blood pressure.

They admistered 2 grams of vitamin C (ester C in particular) and 4 garlic tablets (containing 6 mg of allicin and 13.2 mg of alliin) daily to their patients, and examined their blood pressure levels for the next 10 days.

Mousa and his crew also examined how the combination of vitamin C and garlic would impact endolithial nitric oxide output.

Here’s what they found out:

  • The endolethial nitric oxide output actually increased by a staggering 200%.
  • On average the systolic blood pressure dropped from 142 mm to 115 mm.
  • Diastolic Blood pressure decreased from 92 mm to 77 mm on average.

What the numbers above mean in human terms, is that after you take 2 grams of vitamin C along with a hefty dose of raw garlic, you will increase your overall blood flow in the body by a huge number, which means that not only will your whole body operate much more efficiently, your heart health will also improve drastically.

As a man you’re also gonna love this:

Your erection quality will most likely improve significantly, due to the fact that your blood pressure decreases, nitric oxide levels skyrocket, and also adding in the fact that both of those two will also boost your testosterone levels quite nicely.

So without a doubt this is one of those ‘men’s health bodyhacks’ that every guy should experiment with.


Instead of wasting your money on blood pressure drugs or ‘heart health’ supplements, try this inexpensive trick of garlic + vitamin C.

I’ll bet that you’re going to be surprised of the outcome. At least the science is on your side with this one.

There is actually this supplement which we recently formulated to contain both of these ingredients, it’s called RedWood by Truth Nutraceuticals (affiliate link).

    Unbelievable info…great to know

    • Ali Kuoppala on 24/05/2014 at 13:18

      Yeah sometimes even the cheapest natural tricks can beat medication 😀

      • Bobby on 03/07/2016 at 18:37

        Hi Ali
        Thanks for your great site.
        I’ve heard its better to take Vit C on an empty stomach because it can greatly increase iron stores in the body. So maybe this combo is best on an empty stomach (without any food).
        If iron stores get too high… very bad for the body.

  2. Pedro Mendes de Araújo on 02/06/2014 at 02:28

    One of my goals is to take no medications when I get older, so this is all very good to know. 😉

    • Ali Kuoppala on 07/06/2014 at 20:49

      I have the same goal. I think I’ll make it 😉

  3. Raefwulf on 16/06/2014 at 01:19

    This site just has way too much information. Amazing, can’t believe I didn’t find it sooner. Thanks so much for taking the time to do all of this.

    • Ali Kuoppala on 02/07/2014 at 22:42

      No problem mate, I did process all of this in my head for quite some time before getting the idea of opening a website.

      Looking back, it was a good idea 🙂

  4. Carl on 14/11/2014 at 14:21

    Hey Ali, I just read in another blog that eating garlic everyday more than 3cloves) could make erections weak too. Is that true?

    • Ali Kuoppala on 31/12/2014 at 15:34

      Do you have a link for that? I have never seen any research about that, or had any negative experiences with garlic. It’s a testosterone booster and a powerful vasodilator, so it does sound weird that it would affect erections negatively.

  5. JohnMaiden15 on 16/11/2014 at 15:39

    Is powdered garlic OK? And if not, how to eat raw garlic and keep your friends?

    • Ali Kuoppala on 31/12/2014 at 15:30

      I think that most of the garlic supplements have some kind of powdered garlic inside the capsules, and that should work. Raw garlic is of course superior to any supplements, but at least in the study cited in the article above, supplements worked fine.

  6. simon shaw on 18/11/2014 at 23:53

    What’s the best time of day to take this combo?

    • Ali Kuoppala on 31/12/2014 at 15:33

      Before workouts would be great for the pump. And before sex would also be good for the blood flow (but the foul smell of garlic might be a problem though) :D. Other than that. I think anytime of the day should work just fine.

  7. Ali Kuoppala on 31/12/2014 at 15:32

    Yeah, the smell can be quite hard. Try chewing the clove, then drink lemon juice and some olive oil right after. And preferably do this right before you take a shower.

    • Batman3.0 on 08/01/2016 at 19:32

      I would prefer smelling like garlic than taking blood pressure medication that could (and probably will) cause some serious side effects including Low T and ED.
      Smell like garlic vs. Feel like crap, look like crap, no strength, and the bonus prize you won’t be able to get it up!
      I would rather smell like garlic.

  8. Ali Kuoppala on 31/12/2014 at 15:35

    It’s in the article. I personally just chew 1-2 raw garlic cloves and take 3-6 grams of vitamin C.

    • Patriarchy Pete on 18/05/2016 at 19:22

      2 grams is the oft-recommended daily dosage; any more than that and you’ll be shitting liquid.

  9. Chinweze Unamka on 12/02/2015 at 20:46

    Try eating Garlic with garden eggs (aubergines), they keep you odour free. Someone told me i tried it and it works. Give me a feedback.

  10. Indranil Das on 25/02/2015 at 07:54

    Hi , I think anyone who wanted to take Garlic without ODOR, can just take Homeopathic Allium sativum Mother Tinture …. From INDRANIL

  11. Steel_Body on 08/09/2015 at 10:42

    will try – good idea

  12. Batman3.0 on 08/01/2016 at 19:19

    I read (google them) that there are studies showing lowered blood pressure and harder erections with things as ginger, cayenne or other spicy peppers, and hibiscus. It did not matter if they were consumed in their natural state as food or drink, powder, tea, or capsules; they all work. I read that some natural medicine practitioners have gotten great results by consuming the above with garlic or large doses of vitamin c like in this article.
    So I’m sure 2,000 mgs of vitamin c, 4 garlic tablets, and some cayenne capsules followed up by a cup of ginger and hibiscus tea could provide some very interesting results.
    Every culture I can think of in Asia, Africa, Mediterranean, and Latin America that traditionally consumes high amounts of food with vitamin c, garlic/onions, and spices has little use for the little blue pill or blood pressure medication. As soon as they move to the west or start becoming more industrialized and eating crap their blood pressure, kidney failure, strokes, ED, obesity rates, etc. goes through the roof. Coincidence?

  13. Kevin on 28/01/2016 at 20:02

    Would fragata garlic cloves be good ? They are Easy to eat 🙂


  14. Bevan Awai on 26/02/2016 at 14:51

    What should be the dosage of garlic using the supplement you linked to?

  15. […] Vitamin C + Garlic Extract (Research), Pycnogenol (Pine Bark Extract), Horse Chestnut […]

  16. […] the fact that garlic can give you a foul breath, it’s also capable of increasing your nitric oxide levels by ~200% when taken in combination with vitamin C. Making it a stupidly cheap pre-workout […]

  17. Vicente on 28/02/2017 at 13:46

    Can I roast the garlic and still get the results?

    • Adrian Lopez on 27/03/2017 at 10:47

      No, allicin is lost over 60 °C.

  18. Marie Demientieff on 23/03/2017 at 02:44

    I’m not a man. It so used of seeing the ad, ” if it lasts more than 4 hours go see a doc”….Do a man have this side affect with the natural stuff??

  19. David Renn on 31/03/2017 at 00:06

    I fry my garlic in butter, 3 cloves with mushrooms on low heat and add three eggs and have with half of avocado..
    is this heat to high for the garlic ?
    plus I take odorless garlic oil standardized to 2.1 Allicin

    two capsules.
    I smoke; so take 1800mg of NAC and between 6 and 8 grams of vitamin c.
    i recently started taking Na rala 200mg morning and another about 5 in the after noon.
    greatly improved my energy.

    and I am trying the B3 timed release.

    I do take other vitamins a combo E,A,C,D and zinc picolinate, B vitamins, boron 3mg, vit K2 and various amino acids also magnesium but not all the time. same with the NAC i tend to know go on what feel as to what working.
    i got to say since starting garlic and garlic oil things have improved very quickly and at 55 my libido has shot up along with firm up it like magic.
    I am know taking two showers a day.
    plus I have osteoarthritis do Qi gong and Tai ChI ball exercise for back and if you met me you would not belive I have multiple dsic degeneration. in my Lumbar.

    two years ago the spinal surgeon said i would more than likely need spinal surgery in ten years.

    Frightened me in to investigating Qi gong and Zhang Zhuang.
    I don’t have steroid injections any more and I don’t need pain killers.
    great balance and can stand on either leg. for several minute
    I Love these type of sites.
    as there always handy tips!
    I’ve always avoided garlic, cos of the smell now I love the stuff.
    I’m taking a bit of a risk I stop my amlodipine and I am monitoring each day with my own machine to see if the garlic will keep my blood pressure down.
    I am or was 2 stone over weight ,lost 5 pounds in 7 days gone sugar free and at this present time after a week of sugar crashing or adjusting I feel like a new man.

    real big thumbs up for Garlic, I noticed the difference with in days along with 2x200mg of Na rala. this does boost your energy but do not take at night you will have trouble sleeping

    the other thing that was messing with my energy levels was i was drinking really sweet tea and coffee loads of it and not eating during the day with a double portion evening meal.
    the best thing I find know is an omelette with garlic of course, mushrooms and avocado.
    the oils and nutrients in avocado increase the absorption rate and efficiency of the nutrients in other foods by 200% and it contains oleic acid which is what thought is the effective ingredient in olive leaf extract and olive oil and olives of course.
    a real power house.
    so please keep on adding your comments and advice
    sorted He He
