    Default Does nicotine reduce oxygen flow in the blood?

    I know cigarette SMOKE does but I was wondering if nicotine did also. Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks.

    I am not a doctor, Jim, but I believe carbon monoxide is the component of cigarette smoke responsible for causing poor circulation. CO (carbon Monoxide) is a byproduct of combustion, so it is not present in vapor. On a more empirical and personal note, I have been vaping heavily for almost a year, and my circulation is better than it ever was as a smoker. In fact, living in Utah, I find that warm fingers and toes is one of the best positive effects of switching from analogs.

    Thanks des. That's EXACTLY what I thought. I'm going to start a muscle building workout regiment and circulation is extremely important in recovery. I was hoping my PV wouldn't effect that.

    LIke Mark said, circulation will improve with Ecigs over regular analogs.

    But nicotine is a mild vaso-constrictor- just like caffeine/coffee/pepsi are They are all stimulants. I think pretty much ALL stimulants constrict your arteries now that I think about it. That's why they raise your blood pressure a lil.

    But our nicotine juice is comparable to coffee so don't fret about it. It's a minor vaso-constrictor and is as safe as caffeine.

    Lori,
    Nicotine is not a minor constrictor- it is a major constrictor of arteries, depending on the amount you ingest

    Nicotine Surprise | Popular Science

    Results indicate that in dogs with normal coronary curculation, a single infusion of nicotine increases both capillary blood flow and terminal vascular capacity; repeated nicotine administration, however, has no significant effect on either.EFFECT OF NICOTINE ON CAPILLARY FLOW AND TERMINAL VASCULAR CAPACITY OF THE HEART IN NORMAL DOGS AND IN ANIMALS WITH RESTRICTED CORONARY CIRCULATION — JPET
