Benefits of Increasing Nitric Oxide in the body. Dr. Ignarro

Dr. Louis Ignarro is a distinguished Professor of Pharmacology at the UCLA School of Medicine and has spent 30 years of his life researching how to improve heart health without prescription drugs and is the author of the book NO More Heart Disease...How Nitric Oxide Can Prevent Even Reverse Heart Disease and Strokes.

Watch as Dr. Louis Ignarro explains all of the benefits of increasing nitric oxide in the body.

In 1998 three American scientists were rewarded the Noble Prize in Medicine for their discovery that the body uses a gas molecule called nitric oxide (NO) to relax and widen blood vessels—a finding that is paying off in the treatment of heart disease.

How ironic that 100 years earlier, when Alfred Nobel, the creator of both dynamite and the Nobel Prize, was taken ill with heart disease...his doctor prescribed for him nitroglycerine, which he refused. But 100 years later, the nitroglycerine in his dynamite actually led to his Nobel Prize being awarded for the discovery that nitric oxide is the gas molecule released in the nitroglycerine that has the life-saving effect of increasing blood flow and preventing a heart attack.
