Aging is a key risk factor associated with the onset of cardiovascular disease. Notably, vascular aging and cardiovascular disease are both associated with endothelial dysfunction, or a marked decrease in production and bioavailability the vasodilator of nitric oxide (NO). As a result of decreased nitric oxide availability, aging vessels often exhibit… CONTINUE READING
