Return to Vibrant Health

Mar 22 2023 • 47 mins

Today we are saying YES to N.O.!

Dr. Nathan Bryan is the world's leading researcher on nitric oxide (N.O.), a gas often called the "magic molecule" because of its powerful role in your body. As you'll hear today, this gas is essential for proper cell signaling, relaxation and ability of the blood vessels to dilate and is implicated in the health of almost all body systems including your cardiovascular system (heart and blood vessels), brain, sexual function (men AND women), gut health, and more.

The problem is that our Western lifestyle constantly threatens the production and function of this magic molecule, which fades with age. You have so much power to increase it by diet, exercise, and general lifestyle factors. But we also discuss a couple nice supplements too.

Few quick hits about N.O. - things that reduce it (which is "bad") include:
- mouthwash
- antacids (you'll hear why being on a PPI like omeprazole may be detrimental)
- antibiotics

Tune in to hear about this wonderful, life sustaining molecule and say YES to N.O.!
