Natural blood vessel dilators, commonly referred to as vasodilators, include magnesium and niacin, according to the National Institutes of Health and Nutrition411. Both magnesium and niacin are available in supplement forms such as pills, powders and casules.
Magnesium has a broad range of medical effects. Magnesium is necessary for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation and glycolysis. Magnesium is also a factor in a multitude of enzyme processes that are responsible for protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation, explains the National Institutes of Health.
Niacin, another important nutrient, is very effective in decreasing the liver’s secretion of triglyceride-containing proteins, reports Nutrition411. Niacin can also reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
