Achieving Normal, Healthy Blood Pressure, Part 1
April 23, 2020
Dr. Matthew Budoff, Professor of Preventive Cardiology at UCLA, shares the results of a study evaluating the effects of a nitric oxide supplement (Berkeley Life) on hypertensive patients. After 12 weeks, use of the tablets reduced systolic blood pressure by an average of 12.5 points; diastolic blood pressure declined by 4.7 points. Can patients safely use nitric oxide supplements alongside their blood pressure medications? How many beets or how much arugula would you have to eat to replicate the effects of the concentrated ingredients in Berkeley Life supplements? Are there any side effects? Do nitric oxide levels decline with aging? In chronic disease states? Could there be additional benefits of nitric oxide supplementation for athletic performance? For alleviating erectile dysfunction? Do other supplements like arginine and citrulline have similar impacts on nitric oxide? Nitrites in preserved meats like bacon—why are they bad when dietary nitrates are good? What does the nitric oxide saliva test indicate? The link between nitric oxide and inflammation—are there implications for lung health in COVID-19? Click HERE for part 2.

Leyla Weighs In: Nitric Oxide for Better Cardiovascular Health
March 13, 2020
Pharmacist and certified clinical nutritionist Beth Shirley, Executive Director of the Berkeley Life Scientific Advisory Board, details the benefits of nitric oxide supplementation. Nitric oxide is a vital signaling molecule essential in cardiovascular health. It supports blood pressure, immunity, sexual health, physical performance, cognitive function, blood sugar levels and more. Unfortunately, as we age our levels start to diminish naturally. Learn how to find out if you have low nitric oxide levels, and how to restore them.

Nitric Oxide for Heart Health, Part 1
September 24, 2019
Beth Shirley, RPh CCN, Executive Director of the Berkeley Life Scientific Advisory Board, details the numerous health benefits of nitric oxide supplementation. Blood pressure, cognitive health, neuropathy, female and male sexual health are all impacted by nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a vital signaling molecule for our cardiovascular health. It helps to reduce blood pressure and increase oxygen in the blood. It acts as a messenger molecule, telling blood vessels to widen or dilate, and contract or relax. With enough nitric oxide blood vessels can relax and widen allowing blood to flow from and to the heart. We all make nitric oxide in our bodies but, as we age, it starts to diminish. This causes blood vessels to become less elastic which can reduce the flow of oxygenated blood to vital organs. The good news is that this reduction in NO can be reversed through diet, lifestyle or supplementation. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: Sleep Disordered Breathing, Part 1
September 5, 2019
Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) may be the overlooked missing link to many maladies including chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, headaches, obesity, anxiety, depression, TMJ, hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and even Alzheimer's. In children and adolescents, it may cause Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Dr. Michael Gelb, co-author of "Gasp," describes the range of symptoms airway disorders can provoke. Why are they so prevalent? Is it something about our modern lifestyles? Is SDB the same as sleep apnea? How is it diagnosed? Even if you don't snore, could you have airway problems? Who should suspect they might have SDB? Why do airway problems damage the heart and brain? How do they rev up pain pathways? What's their relationship to weight gain? What treatment options exist for patients with SDB? How are their lives transformed? Click HERE for part 2.
