I spoke to Dr. Louis Ignarro on the Broken Braid Podcast to talk about how important nitric oxide is to our overall health, and how it impacts our cardiovascular health, brain health, immune system, and nervous system. We also discussed the problem with not having adequate levels of nitric oxide in the body, and how to naturally boost your production of it and so much more.
Dr. Ignarro is a medical research scientist who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his breakthrough discovery of Nitric Oxide (NO), and how it positively impacts health and longevity. His groundbreaking research on nitric oxide paved the way for—among other innovations—Viagra. Nitric oxide is currently being utilized all over by hospitals and universities as possible treatment for COVID-19. He is an award-winning Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Molecular & Medical Pharmacology at the University of California, Los Angeles, and has his PhD in Pharmacology with over 35 years of experience teaching.
Dr. Ignarro is a widely sought-after international speaker on nitric oxide, cardiovascular health, and the importance of nitric oxide to a healthy lifestyle. Based on his scientific work, Dr. Ignarro started a biotech company that focuses on the development of nutritional supplements designed to boost the body’s production of nitric oxide.
