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?
