    Scientist Explains The Powerful Role Of Nitric Oxide In Preventing Alzheimer’s Disease And How To Protect Our Brains With Nathan Bryan, PhD

    This episode is brought to you by Cozy Earth, Fatty15, and Birch Living.


    Cardiovascular disease still ranks as the leading cause of death for both men and women. Surprisingly, half of those affected show no symptoms before an event. Low levels of nitric oxide—a molecule that promotes vasodilation and smooth blood flow—could be primarily responsible. By recognizing the signs of deficiency, we can raise our levels and lower our risk.


    Today on The Dhru Purohit Show, Dhru sits down for round two with Dr. Nathan Bryan to discuss why nitric oxide is the holy grail of molecules for long-term health. Dr. Bryan shares the four hallmarks of disease, the consequences of antacid overuse, and the correlation between lower nitric oxide and the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Bryan also explains which lifestyle factors can hinder and boost nitric oxide production, how to test your levels, and symptoms that signal a deficiency.


    Dr. Nathan Bryan is a renowned biomedical researcher known for his groundbreaking work on nitric oxide (NO) biology. Dr. Bryan's research has significantly advanced our understanding of NO's critical roles in cardiovascular health, immune function, and neurobiology. Beyond academia, he advocates for public health, translating his research into practical solutions for improving human health.
