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.

Debunking Myths about Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Part 1
September 17, 2019
One of the world’s most authoritative experts on Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), author of "The Digestive Health Solution," dispels myths about this poorly understood condition. In an article entitled “Does Irritable Bowel Syndrome Exist?” https://www.mdpi.com/2624-5647/1/3/27/htm Dr. Benjamin Brown challenges the notion that it’s one overarching disease; rather there are many subtypes, amenable to solutions other than routine antispasmodics, antidepressants, and fiber supplements that deliver relief to a mere 25% of sufferers. And it’s not just a psychological disorder. He discusses the role of diet, probiotics, and herbs. What about the low-FODMAP diet? Gluten-avoidance? Food allergies? Histamine intolerance? Pancreatic enzymes? Cognitive-behavioral therapy and stress reduction? Is there a relationship between IBS and fibromyalgia? Click HERE for part 2.
