The Critical Importance of Nitric Oxide and How to Get More of It: Dr. Nathan Bryan

Dr. Nathan Bryan is an international leader in molecular medicine and nitric oxide biochemistry. Dr. Bryan was the first to describe nitrite and nitrate as indispensable nutrients required for optimal cardiovascular health. He was the first to demonstrate and discover an endocrine function of nitric oxide via the formation of S-nitrosoglutathione and inorganic nitrite.

Dr. Bryan joins us on the SuperAge podcast to explain this complex topic. He shares the role nitric oxide plays in inflammation and blood flow, the connection between nitric oxide and our oral microbiome, how to test our nitric oxide levels, what the importance of daily sunlight is, red light therapy, the connection to Raynaud’s, and more. 

“Every single chronic disease, whether it’s heart disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, liver disease, or lung disease, the common denominator in all of them is decreased blood flow, increased inflammation, and nitric oxide is what controls and regulates both of those things. It decreases inflammation and increases blood flow.” 

“People who use mouthwash have higher blood pressure than those who don’t and it puts them at an increased risk for heart attack and stroke.” 

“If you’re using mouthwash, you have to stop. Mouthwash is bad news. There is clear evidence that it increases blood pressure. In fact, if you use mouthwash and exercise, you lose the cardioprotective benefits of exercise.” 

“Exercise stimulates nitric oxide production and that’s why exercise is medicine.”

“Since 1946 – 2018 there’s a 78% decline in all nutrients in plants grown and vegetables grown in the US.”

“The foods we eat today, every single American is deficient in one or more nutrients.” 

“Taking apple cider ginger before every meal is probably the best therapeutic strategy you can do.” 

“Most Americans with chronic disease are overmedicated. They’re on 6, 8, 10, sometimes 12 different medications and there’s never a discussion of how the physician is going to get you off of those meds. With that many drugs, your body cannot heal itself, your body can’t perform.”
