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.
