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.
