Pharmacologist, Nobel Laureate
Watch these 3 great movies from Dr Louis Ignarro PhD. on the HealthQuest Youtube channel
Dr Ignarro discusses the findings of his research into the cell signalling properties of Nitric Oxide
Nutrients required for the production of Nitric Oxide. Prolonging the life of Nitric Oxide in the body with the use of antioxidants. The many benefits of Nitric Oxide within the body. Increasing Nitric Oxide in the brain improves and restores memory and learning
The antioxidants in Green tea, garlic plus vitamin C, vitamin E, R Alpha Lipoic acid and Resveratrol protect and prolong the life of Nitric Oxide (NO). Folic acid also protects NO and keeps the level of homocysteine in the healthy range.Exercise is the most important way for stimulating the body’s production of NO. Exercise increases blood flow through the arteries which in turn directly stimulates the cells lining the arteries to produce more Nitric Oxide.

Dr. Louis J. Ignarro was co-recipient of the 1998 Nobel Prize in Medicine together with Dr. Robert F. Furchgott and Dr. Ferid Murad for demonstrating the biochemical formation, actions and signaling properties of nitric oxide.
He is currently professor of pharmacology at the UCLA School of Medicine’s department of molecular and medical pharmacology in Los Angeles, which he joined in 1985. Before relocating to California, he was a professor of pharmacology at Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans, for 12 years.
Dr. Ignarro has published numerous articles on his research. He received the Basic Research Prize of the American Heart Association in 1998, in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the advancement of cardiovascular science. That same year, he was inducted into the National Academy of Sciences and the following year, into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
He is the founder of the Nitric Oxide Society, and founder and editor-in-chief of Nitric Oxide Biology and Chemistry. Ignarro holds a B.S. in pharmacy, Columbia University, 1962, and a Ph.D. in pharmacology, University of Minnesota, School of Medicine, 1966. He also received a postdoctoral fellowship in chemical pharmacology from National Institutes of Health in 1968.
