I have taken this opportunity to indroduce to you a Genius who has saved the lives of many many individuals througout the world because of his discovery and research of Nitric Oxide.
Many researches by current scientistics and doctors are primarilty based on Dr. Ignarros work.
Enjoy this bio- and stay tuned for heart health solutions Herbalife supplies which are formulated by this revolutionary Doctor!
Louis J. Ignarro (born May, 1941) is an American pharmacologist. He was corecipient of the 1998 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Robert F. Furchgott and Ferid Murad for demonstrating the signalling properties nitric oxide.
Louis Ignarro receives award from D. Wink at National Cancer Institute - NIH
He is currently professor of pharmacology at the UCLA School of Medicines 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. Ignarro has also previously worked as a staff scientist, research department, for the pharmaceutical division of CIBA-GEIGY Corporation in New York.
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 Univerity, 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. He is a member of the scientific committee of Nicox, a French pharmaceutical company, a member of the Board of Directors of Antibe Therapeutics, a Canadian drug discovery company, a member of the Board of Directors of Operation USA, a non profit organization, and a member of the Nutritional Advisory Board for Herbalife, our nutrition and weight-loss company.
What is Nitric Oxide and WHY GENIUS?
Nitric Oxide, NO, not to be confused with nitrous oxide, N2O (a gas used in anesthesia), is colorless, odorless gas that is an important signaling molecule in the body of mammals, including humans, but is toxic at high doses. It is important in the chemical industry and is also a toxic air pollutant produced by cigarette smoke, automobile engines, and power plants. In 1994, the respected journal Science declared nitric oxide as its "molecule of the year" for the exciting discoveries surrounding its physiological signalling roles. Dr. Ignarro has been prominent in advocating alternative medical uses including the treatment of heart disease, shock, cancer, impotence, and pulmonary hypertension. NO is now known to play a key role in many biological functions including inflammation, blood flow regulation, cell growth, smooth muscle relaxation, and preserving memory. Each year, thousands of research papers are written about the molecule. Appropriate levels of NO production are important in protecting organs from damage.
