We designed Redwood to be a supplement with ingredients that we can stand behind.
We know you’re probably too busy to dive into a literature review for every supplement you’re thinking about taking, which is why we’ve done it for you. But if you want to do your homework you can find all the studies that back our ingredients here.
Keep reading to find out why Redwood is one of the top supplements out there for improving your circulatory health, increasing nitric oxide, boosting blood flow and why it can make a great addition to your supplement stack.
Why Should You Take Redwood?:
Let’s be honest. There are a lot of overhyped supplements on the market that promise to help you live forever, even if you don’t have great lifestyle habits.
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
If you plan to take Redwood without eating healthy food or getting off the couch, you might as well save your money.
In reality, supplements are meant to support your already healthy lifestyle and aren’t meant as a replacement for proper nutrition, sleep, or exercise. They're the icing on the top of the cake for a healthy lifestyle.
Redwood improves your blood flow and circulation by increasing your body’s natural production of a gas called nitric oxide.
Nitric oxide is what’s known as a vasodilator, which means it helps your blood vessels relax or open up, allowing more blood to flow through.

Production of Nitric Oxide:
Never heard of nitric oxide? Then you might want to familiarize yourself with this powerful chemical that can have huge benefits for your overall health.
Your blood vessels naturally produce and release nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is what’s known as a vasodilator. When nitric oxide flows through your blood vessels, it relaxes them so that they can easily expand.
Nitric oxide in the body is basically like Epsom salt in a bubble bath. Imagine sliding into the tub and feeling every muscle in your body relax. That’s basically what nitric oxide does to your blood vessels.
Due to the high stress nature of our modern lifestyles many people live in a "vasoconstricted" state, meaning that their blood vessels are stuck in a narrowed state. This results in poor blood flow and circulation throughout their entire body.
How Does Redwood Work?:
Redwood is a nitric oxide booster.
Redwood works by providing your body with the ingredients it needs to produce nitric oxide. This fills up your body's"nitric oxide gas tank" allowing more nitric oxide to be produced and vasodilation to occur.
Because Redwood only includes ingredients that support your body’s natural nitric oxide levels, it doesn’t cause side effects like many blood pressure medications.
Even if you’re young and fit, there are advantages to improving your nitric oxide production.
One study found that when soccer players took a combination of L-arginine and L-citrulline (two proven nitric oxide boosters), they improved their power output measured by cycling after just seven days!
