Is Nitric Oxide the New Anti-Aging Ingredient?

Is Nitric Oxide the New Anti-Aging Ingredient?

December 26, 2019




Dr. Nathan Bryan, PhD with Pneuma Nitric Oxide, a pioneer behind scientifically proven nitric oxide-based technologies for use in skin care and cosmetics who has been involved in nitric oxide research for decades joins eHealth Radio and the Skin Care and Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Nathan Bryan discuss the following:

  1. You are a part of a company called Pneuma Nitric Oxide, LLC, tell us about the company and what your contribution is?
  2. Can you share some of your research findings and accomplishments?
  3. What are the benefits and why is Nitric Oxide so important?
  4. Is nitric oxide the new ingredient that will effectively combat aging?
  5. You are the first to introduce Nitric Oxide into the beauty arena, what makes Pneuma Nitric Oxide Serum so unique and how is it used?

Tip: Pneuma Nitric Oxide does not replace any product in a skin care regime, it adds a new tool to our armamentarium of caring for our patients.

As a pioneering figure in the field of nitric oxide research, Dr. Nathan Bryan Ph.D., has teamed up with Pneuma Corp. LLC to create a category of revolutionary beauty products known as Nitriceuticals. Dr. Bryan’s research has led to the development of Nitric Oxide based skincare and wellness products that promote beauty and anti-aging on the molecular level. He holds more than a dozen issued U.S. and international patents for his breakthrough techniques in human physiology and disease management.

Dr. Nathan Bryan, Ph.D. earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from the University of Texas at Austin. He went on to receive his doctoral degree from the Louisiana State University School of Medicine. Devoted to research, Dr. Bryan pursued his post-doctoral training as a Kirschstein Fellow at Boston University School of Medicine and held a faculty position at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. He was the first to describe nitrite and nitrate as indispensable nutrients required for optimal cardiovascular health and has since made many seminal discoveries. He is an international leader in molecular medicine and nitric oxide biochemistry.

According to Dr. Bryan, “Nitric oxide is considered one of the most important molecules produced in the human body. I feel I have an obligation and a responsibility to educate the masses on the importance of nitric oxide so they can reap the benefits of nitric oxide product technology. I’m passionate about bringing validated science of nitric oxide to the beauty world because it will truly transform the beauty industry and the people who use it.

As a highly sought-after doctor, researcher, and speaker, Dr. Nathan Bryan Ph.D. has written numerous research papers and books. He travels the globe to educate and create awareness regarding the essential nature of nitric oxide production in the body and what happens when one becomes deficient as we age. One of those books, Functional Nitric Oxide Nutrition, was designed to help the everyday person understand this “miracle molecule” and how it affects everything from cardiovascular health and the immune system to the aging process of the skin.

We know that advanced aging is due to poor circulation to the skin and decreased oxygen and nutrient delivery. This causes loss of hydration, oxidative stress which leads to fine lines and wrinkles, poor complexion and inflammation. By using nitric oxide-based skin care products, we open up the circulation and allow oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to the cells of our skin. This improves cellular function, enhances cellular regeneration and improves the look and function of our skin. If you give the body what it needs, it heals itself. Nitric oxide is what’s been missing in the beauty world. I’m excited to bring this product technology to the masses,” says Dr. Bryan.

 Dr. Nathan Bryan's research led him to this question: how can we harness the miraculous benefits of Nitric Oxide for use in skin care? Thus, the relationship between Dr. Nathan Bryan Ph.D. and Pneuma Corp. LLC was born.

Utilizing Dr. Bryan's pioneering research, Pneuma Corp LLC has focused on connecting both beauty and wellness with nitric oxide-based technology that promotes beauty and anti-aging on the molecular level. With vigor and drive, Dr. Nathan Bryan Ph.D. continues to pioneer the way for the science and the beauty world to merge, delivering practical insight and power-packed beauty products that are sure to change lives for decades to come.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Herm Cukier & Dr. Mandy Francis discuss the following:

  1. Tell me about This Is Pain and what you hope to achieve launching this campaign?
  2. What exactly is chronic pain and what don't people understand about the disease?
  3. What do you believe would better the lives of chronic pain patients/what do you see you patients experience?

BioDelivery Sciences International, Inc. (Nasdaq: BDSI) (“BDSI”) launch This Is Pain, a long-term initiative that aims to improve the lives of over 10 million[1] American adults living with chronic pain.

Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons[2] that Americans visit a healthcare professional and yet this disease is widely misunderstood and can be incredibly isolating, debilitating and frustrating for those living with it. This is in large part, due to the fact that each person’s pain is highly individualized and not visible to that person’s peers, colleagues and wider society.

This Is Pain seeks to first confront the stigma around the disease state, creating widespread awareness and empathy, in order to ultimately combat the systemic challenges those living with chronic pain face. These challenges include experiencing unfair treatment in the workplace and difficulty in accessing affordable treatment options. The long-term goals of the campaign include achieving the following:

  1. Wider societal recognition of chronic pain as a disease state, not a symptom
  2. Policy change to increase access to safe and effective treatment options for chronic pain individuals living with chronic pain
  3. Increased research funding to improve existing treatments and develop innovative therapies for individuals living with chronic pain
  4. Fairer treatment and representation in the workplace.

“People living with chronic pain face unimaginable hurdles and struggles in their daily lives and I believe that we can alleviate some of the challenges they face by first drawing attention to what it is really like to live with pain.” stated Herm Cukier, CEO of BDSI. “We know that change is borne out of a communal desire to act and that is exactly what we need to achieve to impact the lives of those living with chronic pain.”

Date: Thursday, December 12th - Sunday, December 15th
Time: 8:00AM - 8:00PM

The one-of-a kind artwork will be displayed in an exhibition at Oculus Plaza in New York City starting December 12th through December 15th.

Penney Cowan of the ACPA says of the exhibition, “If we can encourage people to take a moment out of their day to learn about the disease and really see how this disease impacts those living with chronic pain , we believe we can start to generate the support we need to effect real change.”

BDSI will continue to pursue its endeavor until significant improvements are made at a systemic level.
