Q&A with Leyla, Part 2: Heart Palpitations
October 9, 2019
I have a heterozygous PCSK9 mutation. Do you have any thoughts on the new PCSK9 inhibitors?; I get heart palpitations after I eat. My doctor told me to ignore it, but why does it happen after I eat?; My PSA went up to a 3.9 from 2.7 and I'm reluctant to have a biopsy. Are there any non-invasive tests that could give me a sense of how serious this is?; I have fungus infection in several toes and have tried everything for it. I've decided to take terbinafine but this can be hard on the liver. Are there any supplements to take to mitigate the dangers?; Do you agree with Beth Shirley from your recent podcast that arginine is not helpful for nitric oxide production? And what exactly is in Viagra that makes it so effective? Click HERE for part 1.

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.
