In 2005 some most revolutionary data came across his desk: The 1998 Nobel Prize Winning research on Nitric Oxide (NO) nutrition! As a result he sold his practice and began “shouting from the rooftops” the benefits of nitric oxide. He began teaching Pulse Wave Analysis: a non-invasive vascular screening that indicates arterial constriction, congestion, stiffness and blockage and how over time specific nitric oxide nutrients can cause a reversal. Since 2012, he has served as the Chief Medical Advisor for several GMP Supplement Manufacturers assisting clients in creating safe and effective supplement formulas.

Nitric Oxide: Your Body’s Best Medicine
Nitric Oxide (NO) is the most studied molecule in history. Its research won the Nobel Prize in Medicine. NO has been dubbed “the miracle molecule” due to its ubiquitous and far reaching effects. It is even being called the “Cardiovascular Cure”. Unfortunately, as we age, our nitric oxide levels tend to wane. As our NO wanes we see an increase in many health conditions; most notably high blood pressure and various forms of heart disease including heart attacks. Come listen as Jay Wilkins, ND, of Bionox discusses what nitric oxide is, why it is so important, and how we can harness this medicine within.
