    Nitric Oxide (NO) and Healthy Blood Circulation for Addressing Sexual Dysfunction in Men & Women

    Blood Circulation Can Affect Sexual Function

    Can the answer to erectile dysfunction in men and female sexual dysfunction in women be “NO” or Nitric Oxide?

    Ground Breaking Discovery

    In 1998, the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine was awarded to 3 scientists for their discoveries concerning Nitric Oxide (NO) and its important role in the cardiovascular system.

    Nitric Oxide and Why We Need It

    Not to be confused with Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) that some dentists use, Nitric Oxide can open blood vessels and help bring nutrients to various parts of the body.

    Nitric Oxide dilates the blood vessels and increases healthy blood circulation to your skin, your brain, your heart, your muscles, joints, genitals, and more.

    Nitric Oxide can also play a very important role in healing and recovering from inflammation and chronic diseases.

    5 Weekly Habits That Can Help You Lose Weight

    The Thyroid Hormones

    The thyroid gland affects the function of just about every organ system in the body and is an essential component in the balance between female hormones and the adrenal gland. For the other hormones to work together, the thyroid hormones must first be balanced.

    The thyroid gland is controlled by the pituitary gland, which produces thyroid stimulating hormone, or TSH. TSH regulates two of the four thyroid hormones that are produced by the thyroid gland—triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). The other thyroid hormones, T1 and T2, are the results of iodination of tyrosine molecules, and do not require clinical correction. There is an inverse relationship between TSH and T3/T4; if the thyroid does not produce enough T4, the pituitary will secrete more TSH to stimulate T4 release. T4 is then converted to T3 by a deiodinase enzyme.

    It is common practice to prescribe only T4 to patients who may be suffering from hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid); however, a study from the
