Dr Ivy has been doing groundbreaking research in this area of study for the last 10-15 years and is considered an invaluable expert in this field.

This episode dives deep into understanding the limitations of our own body’s ability to produce nitric oxide and how research has shown how vital nitric oxide is to the health of our systems.
