What About ED?
Since nitric oxide plays a role in erectile dysfunction (ED), some have wondered if mouthwashes may contribute to this disorder. To be clear, there is no evidence of this. Zero. No studies have looked at this condition. Untile those are conducted I classify articles linking ED to mouthwash use as clickbait. See the ED supplements review for more insights.
What About Heart Attacks?
Despite the research, there are no reports of heart attacks or strokes associated with mouthwash use. That said, to be safe, if you have heart or blood pressure issues, speak to your doctor and dentist for the best oral rinse for you.
